AMD launched its 5xxx series of graphics card for consumers in September, last year. The 5xxx series of graphics card featured many new technological improvements including ATI’s Eyefinity. ATI Eyefinity technology allows users to attach and use up to 3 monitors simultaneously, excluding the ATI 5870 Eyefinity edition. The ATI 5870 Eyefinity edition features 6 DisplayPorts, so users can hook up to 6 monitors and use them simultaneously.
