Default Crysis @ 7680x1600 reaching 30FPS on one card!

HD 6990. What else? For the impatient ones. Enjoy!

So, it looks like two 6970's squished into one card. That's hot!

I just hope it works fine out-of-the-box, and have decent driver support, with no microstutter crap...

If it's the case, I'm interested...

and for the first poster's FPS benchies shown...who cares about the 30 AVG fps line? I aim for 60 FPS...if not, I'd lower the resolution instead....(although I realize it's eyefinity rez....)....

HD Eyefinity resolution starts @ 5760x1080. That's a bit more than 6 million pixels. The number of pixels in the graph setup is a bit above 12 million and the price of the displays is three times higher at minimal. So if I can barley fit an elephant through my door, then I don't need to mention that I can easily fit a poodle through it as well don't I?.

There are a few of us resisting the temptations of current high-end hardware, surviving on i5s and 460s @ 1080, saving up for the day 2560x1600 displays sell for less than $1000, a day when 3 of those displays can be mounted on a single mount without 50M of cables and a single built in power/signal socket, connected to a card or two in the caliber of the 6990. The day is coming nearer.

I agree...
I currently have 4 GTX 580s on my main build, with 3 30" monitors. The fact that no stand exists for this type of configuration (the max is 2 30") is really frustrating. It takes a lot of desk space.
I'm really looking forward to the GTX 590...I hope it'll do better than 4 GTX 580s !

The first graph above was prepared by AMD, probably opting for medium to low details. A more subjective graph showing that it takes two cards to get past 30 FPS at enthusiast level.
