I like what I read about AMD DX11 GPU! (Read: the successor of RV770 is almost here)
Good things are coming from AMD in the near future, I guess. And the future is not so distant far away, as I am talking as close as DirectX11.
One of the features and capabilities of the next-gen GPU from AMD is the ultra high resolution gaming. Sounds familiar, so what's different about it? I'm talking 7800x3200 resolution driven all the way by a single GPU!
Since we don't have any single LCD monitor currently that support that resolution, we need about 6 30" display to achieve it. This is handled successfully by the new DX11 GPU.
The ability to display a Single Large Surface (SLS : a multi-monitor done right!) at such resolution is going to accelerate an already existing phenomena in the gaming scene: multi-display setup. I personally think that gamers gaming with at least 2 display panels is really nothing new, but so far there's not much that really drives most gamers to buy more than one single big display. The arrival of the next gen GPU from AMD might be a catalyst for this to happen.
The combination of display supported are very exciting, starting from up to 3 displays (supported by the low end variation of the DX11 GPU) and up to 6 for the high end. If I had to imagine, 3 display setup might provide a very wide landscape view and I might want to use this on any favourite FPS game that I have. With a bit of curvy setup, it will give a sense of surround view, adding realism to the gameplay!
AMD had similar intention in mind, and calling all the capabilities above as 'Eyefinity', they plan to achieve a similar effect as Holodeck (Trekkies required!) and the GPU has put forward its first step into one.
