  1. Radeon Eyefinity technology works with applications that support no n-standard aspect ratios, which is required for panning across multiple displays. AMD Eyefinity technology can support up to 4 displays using a single enabled AMD R-series APU or up to 6 displays using a single enabled AMD graphics card with Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating systems – the number and type of displays may vary by board design. Some implementations may require DisplayPort 1.2 multi-streaming technologies with compatible monitors and/or hubs. SLS (“Single Large Surface”) functionality requires an identical display resolution on all configured displays.
