ATI Radeon HD 5970 makes you want even more monitors

AMD ATI Radeon HD 5970Gaming is as stressful and activity your PC is likely to go through. Those lit, shaded, anti-aliased, and anisotropic filtered pixels require more than a bit of processing power to pump out and have always presented a big problem to graphics card manufacturers…well at least they used to.

ATI’s Radeon HD 5970 is so powerful your single high resolution display is insignificant to it, in fact it practically demands you purchase more monitors so you can enjoy multi-screen gaming. InsideHW has the review:

First of all, we must admit that ATI Radeon HD 5970 is fastest graphics card in the world at this moment. This was more-or-less expected, but we were actually pleasantly surprised by efficiency of internal CrossFire bridge. With new PLX chip, SidePort memory is redundant. The fact that in some cases HD 5970 is almost twice faster than HD 5870 confirms that CrossFire development is doing just fine and moving in right direction.

It’s much faster than you’d imagine. Powerful enough that it might just delay the vicious graphics card upgrade cycle by a few months.
