vr zone has some information which i copy and pasted some of it here but pretty interesting stuff. even though its marked as a rumor its still some good information if its being told to the partners.

http://vr-zone.com/articles/-rumour-amd-dx11-cypress-is-radeon-hd-5870--hd-5850/7469.html?doc=7469

* 1GB GDDR5 memory
* ATI Eyefinity technology with support for up to three displays
* ATI Stream technology
* Designed for DirectCompute 5.0 and OpenCL
* Accelerated Video Transcoding (AVT)
* Compliant with DirectX 11 and earlier revisions,supports OpenGL 3.1
* ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU support for highly scalable performance
* ATI Avivo HD video and display technology
* Dynamic power management with ATI PowerPlay technology

i want some more information on the eyeinfinity technology, supports 3 monitors? might be a solution to the th2g box / get read of the middle man.

This sounds promising. Is this like TH2go without the TH2go box or something like spaning with 3 monitors rather than the usual 2. Anyone got links to more info on this feature?

That's what it sounds like.
Wouldn't surprise me at all. I have a feeling card manufactures will begin offering triplehead via the graphics card.

It all depends on if its going to be the GPU card its self or the ATI software,

Hardware is always better then Software. Don't forget we have the Mview coming soon and thats DVI and supports 1920x1200 and confirmed [email protected]

I Googled around and also saw this "ATi Eyefinity support as of Cat 9.10 (8.66)." Is Cat 9.10 floating around in a place where one of the forum members can see just what Eyefinity is? My hope is ATI forces nVidia's hand to open up SLI Mosaic Mode to the Geforce lines.

I'm not sure this has anything to do with SLI/crossfire modes; early photos of ATi's new DirectX11 cards show them having two HDMI outputs and two DVI outputs, meaning one card could drive three displays.

It's all speculation until thier marketing decides to explain what the label means. Even if it's single card, that means ATI version of span modes. Microsoft+nVidia screwed up on that big time with removing that with the move from XP to Vista.
