AMD has been actively working to improve the Eyefinity experience. 2010 and 2011 brought a number of improvements such as Bezel Compensation, CrossFire for portrait configurations and 3x2 Eyefinity. With the release of the AMD Catalyst 11.10 driver in October, AMD is launching what they consider "Eyefinity 2.0". This update will bring new features in a series of driver updates over the first few releases in the Catalyst 12 series. The total list of updates in the new Eyefinity ecosystem are:

  • More flexible bezel compensation (which doesn't require matching monitors)*
  • 16k x 16k pixel support*
  • 5x1-Landscape*
  • AMD Eyefinity + HD3D Stereoscopic Gaming
  • Custom Resolutions
  • Task Bar Positioning (centering)

* Already released in the AMD Catalyst 11.10 release in October 2011.
