Quoted from ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Reviews:Check out these quotes from ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 reviews & previews
"On the productivity and corporate side of things, Eyefinity6 is the best thing ever; relatively cheap to purchase with endless amounts of options and configurations. For an end consumer the frame, six monitors, R5870 Eyefinity6 card(s) and power bill alone simply is at the very least trivial to even consider. So there you have it, The Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6 is obviously not for everybody and honestly .. I'd prefer to have you look into a phat DLP or projector if you need to game on a very big screen. You could also opt to go with 3 bigger monitors at say 1920x1200 each. Either that or seek monitors with a extremely thin Bezel. Regardless of that fact, Eyefinity6 does guarantee a lot of e-peen, great x-factor and a whole lot of fun in unprecedented resolutions, it is a pleasure to play around with."
"The Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition has an MSRP of $479 and should be available immediately at e-tail (the Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition, has an MSRP of $499). For an additional $80-$100 over the standard Radeon HD 5870, the Eyefinity 6 Edition offers double the frame buffer memory and a number of adapters to accommodate various monitor configurations. 500 bucks (give or take) is a lot of money to spend on a graphics card, but considering the capabilities of this card, the adapters board partners will be including, and the additional frame buffer memory, the price premium over the standard 5870 can easily be justified. The market for ultra high-end graphics cards is relatively small. And for specialized cards like the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition the market is even smaller. If, however, the idea of multi-monitor gaming is appealing to you and you've got the means to score one of these cards and the requisite monitors, you won't be disappointed."
"Six displays, one video card. How about that? With 2GB of GDDR5 to help things move along, we get gaming at 5760x2160! "
"I have to admit that even though I was let down by the FPS experience of gaming on 6 monitors, the sheer beauty of seeing a 3x2 Eyefinity configuration is awe inspiring. I found myself finding things to fill the real estate with and could see someone becoming accustomed to it very easily for a permanent configuration. Gaming on 6 panels creates a bit of a problem as we mentioned and only SOME games are going to see the benefit from it: fans of RTS titles and driving games will probably find it mesmerizing. And the ability to fall back on 3-panels for FPS titles does seem like a waste of investment (especially if this is the majority of your gaming time) but at least the option is there. The Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics card is aimed at a very specific type of gamer and to that end, AMD has succeeded. I was disappointed to see that the 2GB frame buffer offered so little in performance advantages over the 1GB card so recommending it over other HD 5870s is hard to do unless you really do want the freedom of 4+ monitors hooked up to a single GPU. Should you find yourself multi-monitor curious, this card is the only way to go."
"Personally I feel that the way ATI have done the 6 monitor card is wrong. For starters, you can see that when using only three monitors in a gaming environment we more often than not see the Eyefinity6 model not offering us playable frame rates at 5760 x 1200. Now, you throw another three monitors into the mix and double the amount of pixels the card has to push and most games are going to come down to a crawl."
