PowerColor Preps Radeon 5970 with 12 DisplayPorts

One of the more interesting features of ATI’s most recent generation of graphics was their new EyeFinity capabilities, the term ATI gave to its new multi-display configurations. Most standard products in the 5000 series come equipped with three display ports, a step above previous generations of graphics products, which typically only featured two displays (with the occasional four-display dual-GPU setup).


Some of the far out 5870 cards actually included a full six mini-DisplayPort ports, making the cards capable of driving six full 1080p displays all at once.  PowerColor decided that six just wasn’t enough and came up with their TWELVE port 5970 cards.  The new cards feature two GPUs with 4GB of GDDR5 graphics memory. The card takes up three expansion slots in the back of the computer; two for the port lineup and a third for the fan exhaust.  There’s no price or availability listed as yet for this monster, though it’s no doubt going to be a pricey thing; PowerColor is waiting until the upcoming CompuTex in Taipei to reveal anything more.
