It will be a busy day and week for those of us in the broadcasting business as the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters event takes place in Las Vegas. We expect quite a few interesting announcements, the first of which is coming from Adobe as we speak. If you have been listening to our podcast or have been paying attention to our news, you have likely heard of the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine that was coming in the next iteration

While sitting at the ASUS OC Summit we came across a very interesting little graphics cards. Actually, it's not so little.
The Masters in 3D
We have been trying out new 3D coverage of the 2010 Masters golf tournament here in the office and wanted to share with our readers quick thoughts and how they can go about watching the sample 3D content if they already have a 3D Vision-ready configuration. You will need a really fast internet connection to get the 10 Mbit stream working but when it does, it impresses.

We finally got our video review of the AMD Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6
Edition graphics card up and ready for you to view. I apologize for
the delay here but we had some major issues with our editing software,
etc etc. I think you'll find the wait was well worth it!
AMD Brings Cypress to the Professional Market
AMD is ready with its next generation of professional graphics solutions starting with the FirePro V8800 based on the Evergreen Cypress GPU found in the Radeon HD 5870. This new FirePro offering includes a 2GB frame buffer, support for four displays and Eyefinity technology as well as offering performance not seen in any similarly priced developer-level GPU!
*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.
