While we’re still waiting for the Radeon 5870 EyeFinity edition (in spite of AMD’s promises) Powercolor has announced a rather original card. The 5770 EyeFinity 5!
In terms of its technical specifications, the card is rigorously identical to AMD’s own spec suggestions, with a GPU with 800 SPs, 16 ROPs and 1024 MB of GDDR5. The same goes for the clocks with the GPU clocked at 850 MHz and the memory at 1200 MHz. The cooling system has been changed for an in-house solution however. The main difference comes in terms of displays as, as suggested by its name, this atypical 5770 supports EyeFinity on 5 screens! Remember that a traditional 5770 is limited to 3 screens and that the 5800s support up to 6 screens. Support for the said screens is very complete and it will be possible to set up screens at four different configurations. Note however that the card’s five outs are in mini-display port format, which will require the purchase of adaptors, as monitors of this format are very rare.
No information as yet concerning availability or pricing of this card which may interest those who wish to set up a wall of screens, without for all that buying a 5800.
