I bet there are plenty of people out there who would feel that 6 monitors would go great with the rest of their office decor...

[citation][nom]nebun[/nom]really...6 monitors...no one can afford 6 monitors (high quality)...such a waste[/citation]Dude, this is not particularly intended for home use, but rather in studios. THERE they can afford 6 good monitors. That would be the least of their costs.

I thought this being a tech website, people would have realized by now that:

A) this is meant for professional applications, not gaming
B) it is actually, on the hardware level, very similar to current home-user cards. The difference is mainly in the drivers which are geared towards 3D rendering rather then frame building
C) professional use products carry a higher price tag as a) the customers are much more price insensitive and
b) a whole lot more work goes into part B.

Now, with all that in mind, if I were a 3d graphics designer, this thing would just about make me be willing to take a pay-cut just to get it in my work-station.

I think it would be great for a large display setup, but for rendering I think nvidia's quadro 6000 is still the way to go by a long shot.

Right.. Because someone willing to spend $3500 on a professional video card would never be willing to spend a few more dollars on 6 monitors.

[citation][nom]cronik93[/nom]They might as well make one big ass monitor.[/citation]

That is pretty much what eyefinity is all about lol

This is cool and all....but a week ago they did a shootout showing that a quadro version of GTX 460 CRUSHED a FirePro version of a 5870.....I would just wait for nvidias rebuttle

Not being able to own 6 high quality monitors doesn't classify someone as "poor".

That being said, many corporations that would be willing to purchase a $3,500 graphics card would definitely be able to afford a 6 monitor setup.

Anyone who can spend $3500 on this card can def afford 6 good monitors, since these are high powered workstation cards and not gaming cards. These cards are for work not for play.

[citation][nom]eyemaster[/nom]They don't all need 6 monitors, they might just buy 3, 4 or 5 monitors...[/citation]

and then you can spend the rest of your productive life recovering from system crashes. No serious professional would used hacked or overclocked hardware, if you cant afford the hardware then you get a loan, if you can't make the money back on the hardware outlay to payback the loan then you got no rights to be in business
