    I'm not sure that card would even fit through my front door, never mind in my PC if it's as big as it looks.

    5x1 monitor configuration, that is absolutely crazy.

    Why do I get the feeling this is going to be a bit of a let down?

    I heard that it can actually run 6 monitors. Because the DVI is dual, it can be split with an adaptor to run 2 screens

    Are you sure it's portrait? By the screenshot (and common sense) it should be landscape, right?

    Original screenshot size was 5,400 x 1,920 pixels (5x 1,080 = 5,400). If it was landscape the resolution would be 9,600 (5 x 1,920) x 1,080

    Officially excited. Would love to know when you get the 590 as well because I need to decide between them!

    Would love to know how this compares to 2x 6970's ...

    Holy sh-

    I'm surprised AMD didn't do the same trick Asus did with the GTX 580 DirectCU and slap a 3 slot cooler on there to mess with your perspective of the thing.

    Are you allowed to tell us its length or is that under NDA..... speaking of which, when is that lifted?

    Nice!

    It's a shame ATI/AMD don't use a reference cooler that plays nice with multi GPU set ups - speaking of which, I've noticed you crafty devils haven't taken any shots which let us know if it's Crossfire capable (or what power plugs it needs)!

    I love how pointless that screen shot example looks. The centre screen has all the important action on it, the other four screens are there to push up the electricity bill.

    Not the best shot for making me want another four 24" monitors on my desk. I think I'll stick to one screen for gaming.
