Delivering the performance, high display density and dedicated features needed to configure multimedia rich display walls
1. AMD FirePro™ W600 is a single-slot solution featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory, multi-stream audio support and six Mini DisplayPort outputs, compared to the single-slot Maxtox M-9188 with eight Mini DisplayPort outputs and 1G or 2GB of DDR2 memory, consuming 75W maximum power. As of May 2012, neither Matrox nor Nvidia offers any product supporting DisplayPort 1.2 and multi-stream audio support, and Nvidia does not offer a single-slot solution capable of driving six or more displays.

2. AMD Eyefinity technology can support multiple displays using a single enabled AMD FirePro™ professional graphics card; the number of supported displays varies by card model. Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, or Linux® is required in order to support more than 2 displays. Depending on the card model, native DisplayPort™ connectors and/or certified DisplayPort™ active or passive adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your card’s DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s) may be required. SLS (“Single Large Surface”) functionality requires an identical display resolution on all configured displays. See www.amd.com/firepro for details.
3. Multi-GPU SLS support planned for a future driver release.
4. Results based on internal measurements of AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 with AMD ZeroCore Power technology enabled and AMD Radeon™ HD 6970 comparing ASIC power consumption in “long idle” state (PC display turned off after a long period of relative inactivity and lack of user input). GRDT-11
5. U.S. and Canada only.
