Six Display Performance
With six mini DisplayPort outputs, it's clear that one thing really matters with the Radeon HD 5870 E6 Edition: how well it performs when connected to six monitors. To answer that question I ran the same titles I did on the previous page, but at a 5760 x 2160 resolution with both single and dual 5870 E6 configurations.
Depending on the title, a single 5870 E6 can range from being too slow to more than enough. For the most part I'd recommend two 5870s to drive 6 displays. You can make do with only one but then you'll be sacrificing pixel quality for pixel count, a tradeoff you don't really have to make with two cards. Even Battlefield Bad Company 2 is playable at high quality settings with two 5870s.
