"Hi, Rage3D? This is AMD, how are you liking Eyefinity so far?"
"Well, you've ruined me for single display gaming. I can't go back to a single display now!"
[laughing] "Great! That's what we want to do for the world, ruin everyone for single panel gaming! Bwahaha!"
At the beginning of March, AMD sent Rage3D their newest enthusiast card: the AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6, codenamed Trillian. This is a little different from the normal HD 5870 in two key areas - quantity of onboard memory and display output options.
