3 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: The only one that supports 6 monitors.

Cons: It supports no more than 2 DVI monitors without additional expensive active converter.
The driver crashes about once a day on Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: If you want to connect more than 2 minitors, you're better off buying monitors with a DisplayPort. AMD does not clearly advertise the fact that the card supports no more than two monitors with DVI or HDMI ports (via passive cable converter). From the third monitor on, you need to buy a $100 miniDP-to-DVI active adapter per monitor, or monitors with a DP port, which cost about $100 more in most cases.
The driver crashes about once a day, without OC'ing or running games. Windows 7 restarts it immediately, but image corruption persists until reboot. I hope AMD will fix the driver soon.

Manufacturer Response:

The crashing could also be related to a potential PSU issue. As far as the Eyefinity issue goes, you don't need to buy a $100 adapter. Newegg sells a lot of $25-30 Active DP/MDP to DVI converters that work perfectly for 3+ monitors. If you continue having issues feel free to contact me at, thanks.

3 out of 5 eggs6 DP ports are amazing

Pros: I'm using this card to power 3 ASUS HD screens all being fed by displayport and configured as one large Eyefinity desktop. I've had zero issues running games at full screen with full settings but the card does get really hot, really fast.

Cons: I believe this card to be defective and have an RMA: but as it heats up, upon reaching 50C artifacts will present themselves. As you get beyond 50C the driver will randomly stop responding and recover and occasionally blue screen the device.

Other Thoughts: Baring the heat issue (which I'm assuming to be a one-off incident) this card is extremely nice.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Lighter than my previous 6870's
2GB memory
PRICE compared to the VisionTek Card
6 DP!

Cons: A little Hot and lets face it, ATI drivers are not the best.

Other Thoughts: I works great on moderatly high settings running skyrim on my 5 screen wide system. If the finances agree down the road, I will crossfire a second one in. Make sure you get active adapters!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for 6 monitor surrround

Pros: -Drives 6 1080p monitors
-Plays video across several monitors with ease
-Looks good

Cons: -Catalyst Drivers are a pain often

Other Thoughts: I needed a computer to play gigantic videos across 4 1080p monitors at once, and this was the best solution.

5 out of 5 eggsIs nice!

Pros: Pretty fast, 6-way Eyefinity on a single card, native 2160p video playback, easily adapted to any decent preexisting world domination setup.

Cons: AMD Vision Engine Control Center (Formerly ATI CCC) is a bit of a pain to set up and configure Eyefinity. Seems a bit buggy, but anyone who's ever used ATI CCC is used to that. Minor artifacting. Most games do not support 5760x2160.

Other Thoughts: Don't forget to buy adapters. Comes with 6 DisplayPort mini to DisplayPort big adapters, but you'll likely need adapters from DisplayPort big to whatever inputs your monitors require.
