Our VGA man Shane Baxtor has managed to sus out when AMD/ATI plans to officially announce its new Eyefinity6 technology which gives the ability to drive up to six monitors from a single card.
We can expect the launch to take place during the week of the 29th of this month and it shouldn't be far beyond that date when we begin to see cards surface from AIBs which harness this extended form of multi-monitor support with half a dozen mini-DisplayPorts on their I/O plates. Word at the moment is that initial cards with Eyefinity6 support will be HD 5870s carrying double the RAM (2GB) to better assist the extended multi-monitor abilities.
However, there will be some super duper Eyefinity6 equipped variants of the top dog dual-GPU HD 5970 coming out as well, one of which got some showtime at CeBIT last week from XFX.
