Have you been wondering how the AMD Radeon HD 6900 "Cayman" graphics cards are running under Linux? After all, Cayman is quite different from the rest of the Radeon HD 6000 "Northern Island" GPUs and its open-source Linux support came much later. There is no reason to wonder any longer as Sapphire has sent over their Radeon HD 6950 DIRT 3 Special Edition graphics card, which we have now put through our arsenal of tests under Ubuntu Linux.
Interesting review, is it possible that future reviews include benchmarks at Eyefinity resolutions?

You could sell the 5970 now, they are fetching record prices because of the bitcoin miners. You can then buy a 6950 and still have enough money left to buy a high end card when the next generation comes out.
A card like this could be useful for 3D modeling with Blender using three monitors, when working on very complex scenes or with the game engine. I don't think the average amateur/low budget 3D artist really needs FireGL cards.
