There’s no catch about supported resolutions, either. At an event yesterday, AMD demonstrated a single next-gen Radeon driving six 30″ Dell monitors, each with a resolution of 2560×1600, hooked up via DisplayPort. Total resolution: 7680×3200 (or 24.6 megapixels). AMD’s drivers present this setup as a single monitor to Windows, so in theory, games don’t need to be updated to support it. AMD showed off Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, World of Warcraft, and DiRT 2 running at playable frame rates on the six displays.”
