Powercolor working on new HD 6870

Written by Slobodan Simic

The Eyefinity 6 HD 6870
Powercolor is apparently working on a yet another card that will be a part of its HD 6800 series, the Eyefinity 6 HD 6870.

As you could have guessed from the name, the card will be based on the HD 6870, Barts XT GPU, and will feature six DisplayPort outputs. The card will use Powercolor's well known cooler, the same one that is proudly cooling its PCS lineup and does a hell of job according to our reviews.

The details are still scarce so the precise clocks, date of availability or the price are still unknown. We are sure that Powercolor will be more than happy to show this one at Cebit so we'll probably know more then.

We need someone more competent than TSMC for the high-end segment.

who really needs 6 DisplayPort outputs and what game will this card handle with 6 monitors connected? solitaire?

Quoting 123s:

when single monitor is connected, but my point was: can it handle almost all games besides Crysis and Metro in max settings when connected to 6 monitors, I don't think so...

Ofc it can, in worst case you have to set some things on high (max = very high in some games) and play without AA ofc.

But the thing is, if somebody got the money for 6 monitors, why not buying 2 6970s for that and play the games maxed.
