Eyefinity And The Survival Of PC Gaming – More to it than merely WoW

Pundits have been predicting the death of PC gaming in the face of the relentless console onslaught for at least the last decade, and many people have pointed out Digital Distribution and Massively Multiplayer Online games as  reasons why this argument is rubbish, here is one more; AMD Eyefinity.

This is a new multi-display technology dubbed ATI Eyefinity Technology, supporting up to 6 simultaneous display being connected to one graphics cards, and supports grouping of multiple monitors into a single large surface (SLS), treated by the OS as a single monitor with very high resolutions, as an inexpensive alternative for ultra-high resolution display solution. It is also a perfect example of the innovation that can happen on the PC platform, something nigh on impossible to foster in the walled-garden of console gaming.

Here are five awesome PC games that work with Eyefinity:

Grand Theft Auto 4

Modern Warfare 2

Napoleon: Total War

Colin McRae: Dirt 2

Armed Assault 2

The Widescreen Gaming Forum have been going since widescreen monitors first arrived on the scene, but they have found a new raison d’etre with multi-monitor gaming solutions like AMD’s Eyefinity, Matrox’s Triple Head 2 Go, and nVidia’s 3D Vision Surround, support is there to be had if you decide you want to give it a try.

PC gaming has a long and prosperous future ahead of it.
