ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity Edition graphics card that was formally announced back in September, 2009, has finally became available. Unfortunately, only one graphics card can be bought and only at Ebay Internet auction.

ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity Edition supports output to six displays, providing rather ultimate visual experience and supporting rather extreme resolutions. Even though the graphics board was announced back in September, so far ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, has not started sales of the product officially.

Still, those who would like to play video games on six monitors have an opportunity to buy Eyefinity Edition graphics card at an Ebay auction for the starting price of around $900, a rather unbelievable sum of money for a graphics board.

ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity Edition carries six mini-DisplayPort connectors, 1GB of GDDR5 memory as well as code-named Cypress graphics processor.

ATI Radeon HD 5870 – the world’s most powerful GPU to date that was previously known as ATI RV870 or ATI Cypress – features 1600 stream processing units, 80 texture units, 32 render back ends and 256-bit memory bus. The chip incorporates unprecedented number of transistors – 2.15 billion and has maximum compute performance of 2.72TFLOP/s. Another version of the chip – ATI Radeon HD 5850 – sports 1440 stream processors, 72 texture units, 32 render back ends, 256-bit memory bus and peak performance of 2.09TFLOP/s.

It is interesting to note that ATI has not officially declared the price for the Eyefinity Edition graphics card.
