I recently attended the 1C Company “nother Night in Moscow 2010″event. While there, I had the opportunity to talk with Shane from the AMD team. We were standing in front of a huge ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor display, giving us the perfect opportunity to introduce you to this technology if you’ve yet to witness what it can do. Playing games (such as those titles from the 1C Company) with a setup such as this is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
What’s interesting to me is that the 1C Company approached AMD and asked them to be a sponsor. They were that excited about this technology. At the time, none of their games were able to work with Eyefinity. However, they worked quickly to bring the titles up to speed.
The genius of Eyefinity is that you can connect it to monitor as long as the video card is Eyefinity enabled. You can set them up in three or six-panel configurations. You can choose to use it in either portrait or landscape mode. It’s customizable to fit your needs and lifestyle. Don’t think you’re limited to only playing games with this amazing multi-display technology. Imagine the amount of work you’ll be able to get done if you had this much seamless screen real estate.
I am a person who needs a multi-monitor setup due to the amount of things going on on my desktop at any given moment. I totally get the need for Eyefinity technology to increase productivity. Since I am not much of a gamer myself, it literally astounded me to see how the games spread out so perfectly across the monitors. There aren’t any “gaps” or breaks in what you’re seeing. With many titles, you’ll often even see more of a game than you ever possibly could without the usage of Eyefinity.
