Deus Ex: HR Played on AMD Eyefinity 5x1 Portrait

Earlier this year we visited AMD's offices in Markham, Ontario, Canada to check out a new Eyefinity setup called 5x1, which uses five monitors in portrait mode. This is an excellent setup thanks to a central display that is undisturbed by a bezel.

We were lucky to see it in a preview stage, but unfortunately, support for this mode wasn't publically available yet. Of course, you can always just grab the preview driver with support for Eyefinity 5x1 right here.

Last week we stopped by AMD's Canadian operations again for an update, and the good news is that Eyefinity 5x1 is almost ready for primetime. We were treated to another game demo, this time of new entry to the superb Deus Ex series. Check it out below.

    Not so much. Bezels are distracting. Projectors anyone?

    Phew... finally, an article that belongs on Tom's. Sweet screen setup, btw! One day I'll get this.

    I think projectors with no bezel would be awesome.

    It is not running very smooth though

    ACCOLITEI think projectors with no bezel would be awesome.Projectors may be the only true bezel free solution out there. Kudos for bringing that to light: I honestly never thought to put a couple projectors together in this way. You would need some MAD wall space to make this work right...

    Are there projectors that can match the resolution displayed here ? Or are you suggesting a multiple projector setup that lines up multiple images just perfectly to provide a seemless image?

    I know Silicon Graphics had a system like that, like 10 years ago that were setups that consisted of huge bits of hardware and cost in the six-figure range

    The sound was completely annoying, is that sound from the game or something they added?

    1 inch gaps between screens, BARF, really not even worth it looks terribly ugly. What would be nice would be multi screen for like BF3, have the game on one screen, map overview, squad and stats on another.. Stretching games across multiple screens is cool in theory but terribly ugly in practice...

    Still need to:
    - Divide Bezels width by 4
    - Add 3D
    And you get an unbelievable immersion.

    High end CPU & 28nm Video Cards should be able to handle it in the next years.

    Ball is on the display side to offer such panoramic affordable view.
