AMD Unveils Eyefinity Graphics Feature
The Eyefinity feature in AMD's upcoming ATI Radeon DirectX 11-enabled graphics chips will enable PC users to connect up to six displays to a single graphics card, in any configuration of portrait or landscape mode, with a resolution AMD officials called near eye definition. The feature is part of AMD's push to show the benefits of combining CPU and GPU capabilities, and was announced in conjunction with AMD's Vision Technology push for consumer PCs.Advanced Micro Devices continues to press its advantage in the graphics space and build on the company's purchase of ATI in July 2006. AMD in May announced it was merging its CPU and GPU (graphics processing unit) businesses, and on Sept. 10 said notebooks powered by AMD's new Vision Technology-combining CPU and GPU technologies-will be on store shelves by the holiday season, in time for the release of Microsoft's much-anticipated Windows 7 operating system.
In addition, AMD officials talked about a new technology, called Eyefinity, which will enable users to run multiple displays off a single graphics card with a resolution officials said in a statement is "near eye resolution."
