Number of Monitors: 
• Up to six dependent on graphics card configuration
Aggregate Screen Resolution: 
• The aggregrate of screen resolution will vary based on the number of panels and individual screen resolutions.  The theoretical maximum: 8192 x 8192 (67.1 megapixel resolution) consisting of 6 panels of 2560 x 1600
Monitors:
• AMD recommends DisplayPort Display monitors, as they offer optimal flexibility with the highest number of display outputs
• Depending on the specific graphic card and operating system, ATI Eyefinity technology can support up to six displays.  For configurations using more than two displays, additional displays must have DisplayPort connectors.
Supported Operating Systems:
• Microsoft Windows 7
• Microsoft Windows Vista
• Linux
Hardware:
• ATI Radeon™ GPU with support for DirectX® 11, with appropriate display outputs
ATI CrossFireX™ Technology:
• Eyefiniy is supported on systems with more than one graphics card. However, each display group must reside on its own video card. For example, a display cannot span across multiple graphics cards.
Bandwidth Requirements:
• Conditional on monitor resolution.  Increased resolution requires a higher performance GPU.
