Imagine a PCI-e card that can output gaming goodness on 6 displays! Kapow!
After moving into a new office and watching interference slowly wave up and down the two LCD monitors (wasn't there before), the first thing that came to mind was, "man there needs to be a new graphics card in this rig." As if reading those very thoughts, Softpedia prints up an article featuring an ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and... get this... 6 DisplayPort ports!
Yep, that's right. Consumers can hook up six DisplayPort displays, making one heck of a desktop that could fill an entire wall thanks to the company's ATI Eyefinity technology. Apparently, the card uses the same dual-slot cooling solution as the reference HD 5870 model too, with the six display ports mounted just under the card's cooler exhaust.
Softpedia also reports that the new model has acquired an 8-pin and 6-pin PCI-e power connector setup. It also sports 1,600 Stream processors as seen with the HD 5870, however the GPU and memory clock speeds have been altered to 850 MHz and 4,8000 MHz, respectively.
Unfortunately, as of this writing, the new model isn't exactly official, nor is there any mention of availability or pricing. We're crossing our fingers that it ships soon, just in time for the long hours of PC gaming during the holidays. Like Gollum says in the LOTR trilogy, we's wants its, my precious.
