New Eyefinity Technology Sounds Cool But Looks A Bit... Pointless

It may not be something you'd run out and buy, or be able to afford to realistically, but the technology is cool just the same. AMD's new DirectX 11 graphics cards use a technology called Eyefinity which is able to spit out a picture across 6 screens in a resolution of 7680 x 3200 each screen.

Eyefinity is enabled through a combination of hardware and software being developed by AMD. On the hardware front, AMD's upcoming Radeons will sport between 3 and 6 display outputs of various types, DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, etc. And those outputs will be managed by software currently dubbed SLS, or Single Large Surface. Using the SLS tool, users are able to configure a group of monitors to work with Eyefinity and essentially act as a single, large display.
