    Default AMD Eyefinity 24 Display Tech Demo On Linux

    Phoronix: AMD Eyefinity 24 Display Tech Demo On Linux

    Today AMD issued a press release that they have "demonstrated the PC's next act" with the unveiling of their ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology. This technology, to be found on their next-generation R800 series hardware, allow "up to 12 times 1080p high-definition resolution, which approaches eye-definition optical clarity." Well, what does that mean? Just watch the video below...

    I wonder whether in the future, this can be coupled with DisplayPort 1.2 multiple streams (which allows daisy-chaining of up to 4 displays). That would allow up to 4 Cards * 6 Outputs/Card * 4 Displays/Output = 96 displays connected to a single computer.

    I think it is good that AMD addressed this problem.

    2 monitors per gfx card simply isn't enough

    I'd like to see how it booted. How do you go from the one master port to 24?

    It's amazing what you can do when you have access to the source code and you can modify it however you wish.
    I wonder what Earth would be like if the majority went down the open source path ten years ago? Probably a lot better.

    I think you are thinking of Windows.

    What do domestic abuse victims and Windows users have in common??
    They keep going back.
    At least the Domestic abuse victims don't have to pay money.

    Does this mean we may be seeing GPU-accelerated HD video playback in Linux coming relatively soon for ATI cards?

    I was really awed by this, I see the potential for some really nice 3 and 6- screens setups =)

    OK, so for us non-gamers and non-CAD-using folks, what can we display on a videowall like this? There aren't any movie formats with 7680x3600 pixel resolution out there. And god, please don't make me watch your vacation photo slideshow....
