Product Gallery Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6
Meet the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6. In all it's essence this is a regular Radeon HD 5870 with some slight changes. First up we spot a small core frequency increase to give the product a little more of an aggressive bite, it's only 50 MHZ more though. What is interesting though is that this model comes packed with 2GB memory. Especially in very high resolutions like used today that will help out a lot with AA.
Next to that we obviously spot the 6 DisplayPorts. Let's zoom in on that
Here we have the six mini-DisplayPort connectors and bellow it the cooling exhaust. Should regular sized DisplayPort connectors have been used ATI would have had to forfeit on cooling. This is a perfectly fine solution and from what I heard ATI will deliver the proper cables or converters with the card for your convenience.
The rear side -- just the air intake is to be seen. the cooler itself and the shell is 100% similar to the original Radeon HD 5870s, really nothing has changed on that end.
The card has a slightly higher TDP and as such ATI need to make sure you can deliver enough current to the product. You'll need both a 6-pin and 8-pin PEG connector coming from your power supply. The card will be fed 75 Watts though the PCIe slot, 75 Watts over the 6-pin PEG and then another 150 Watts can be draw from the 8-pin PEG connector. That's 300W available, roughly 75W more than needed.
But let's assemble everything and create us a sweet multi-monitor setup now shall we?

Radeon HD 7990 review
We review the new AMD Radeon HD 7990 including FCAT frametime measurements. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker review
We test and review the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker, this is the much discussed 7870 card that in fact has a 7900 series GPU, the Tahiti LE. For a fair amount of money this series 7800 product now offers 7900 series performance. Armed with 2GB of graphics memory it hits a sweet spot gaming performance wise and to date it one of the more popular products in the mainstream segment.
