Sapphire Does 3D Gaming with Eyefinity
ATI's Eyefinity technology has opened up a whole new world of multi-monitor gaming and now that the gaming industry is moving tentatively toward 3D technology, it makes sense to put the two together and see what happens.
Sapphire demonstrated the following set up, which combines a single Sapphire video card with ATI Eyefinity support, three Zalmon Trimon 3D displays and a third party 3D driver from iZ3D. The result is a 5760 x 1080 display area of eye-popping 3D. Yes, you still have to wear the goofy glasses.
While Sapphire was full of talk about how smooth everything runs, the company remained quiet on just how much you could expect to pay for a set-up like this. Being perfectly honest, we're not sure how we feel about it. It's still early days for 3D technology and we all know from going to see 3D movies that things can look a little off when if you're at an awkward angle.
