*Updated* Eyefinity goes curvy!
At a recent AMD professional graphics meeting there were some very interesting applications of Eyefinity technology that I know our readers are going to be interested in seeing. One from Scalable uses four projectors on a curved piece of plexiglass while another from Ostendo uses 2880x900 resolution curved monitors. Enjoy!

The PowerColor HD 5750 Green sports a very large passive heatsink, a very, very large heatsink. They took advantage of the extra height this card requires by stacking the second HDMI connector above the first as opposed to the side. The space cleared by that move is taken up by an HDMI port and a Display port, and the power saved by the passive cooling solution means no PCIe power plugs, of either 4 pin or 6 pin, is needed. No performance was sacrificed in the making of this card and
Eyefinity 6 Advantages
Since we first saw the multi-monitor goodness that is Eyefinity last September, we have been promised a video card that can power up to six monitors off of a single GPU. Today we are finally getting that card - the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition! Stop and see how the 2GB card performs in testing and what we thought of the gaming experience it offered!

I know, I know, we've been posting a lot of news and information about the recently released GeForce GTX 480 - but what else are we going to talk about over the weekend where my Alma Mater is left a tattered version of itself thanks to West Virginia? Anyway...

At some time during the week of April 12, 2010, Fermi will actually arrive. Until then you have to live vicariously through hardware reviews, but there is more than a few of them around the interwebs.

Some of you will claim that getting benchmark numbers from a company that sells NVIDIA products (as well as AMD products) isn't the best idea; to each their own but we happen to know this "Morley" fella from MAINGEAR pretty well and I think his results are reliable. Either way, the data he is providing in his most recently blog post is interesting to evaluate. Morley took a set of three GeForce GTX 480s, the very same reference cards t

If you are anybody in the world of graphics card, you are busy pimping your iteration of the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 from NVIDIA. As NVIDIA partners, there really hasn't been much to be excited about for quite a while - AMD has really been dominating the world of enthusiast graphics since September 2009. Galaxy announced their GF100 options yesterday as well!

You know, in truth, I have rarely been a fan of water cooled graphics cards. They are much more complex to install and tend to force you to stick with one GPU for longer than you might otherwise. Just not my style - I'm an upgrade and run kind of enthusiast.
GF100 arrives and brings Fermi in tow
We have been waiting for this day basically since GT200 was revealed: NVIDIA's next-generation GPU architecture. While AMD has been releasing card and card with DX11 support and Eyefinity gaming, NVIDIA has been forced to sit idly by and await its own hardware. The GF100 GPU is finally here as the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 graphics cards and they are surprisingly potent solutions for gamers!
