Sapphire Radeon 6770 FleX Edition
AMD Eyefinity allows users to essentially span three separate monitors into one large, singular desktop. The lure of this to gamers is a massive field of vision across three screens. But Eyefinity has always had one very big asterisk: one monitor must have a native DisplayPort connection, or else purchase an active adapter that runs a DisplayPort connection. But this is where the Sapphire 6950 FleX Edition changes the rules.
What’s so special about this FleX graphics card? Well, it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort or adapters. That capability is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. This means that any monitors with DVI ports can now run Eyefinity; no expensive DisplayPort is necessary. Of course, you still need three monitors to begin with, but the cost and technological implications are significant.
The Sapphire Radeon 6770 FleX is the latest in their lineup, but arrives without the usual fanfare we typically see with the launch of a new Radeon model. It’s positioned below the 6790 and above the 6670, and positioned to take on the Nvidia GTX 550 Ti in a battle of the budget cards. Priced at $140, this new card sits slightly cheaper than its competition but not far from its more powerful Radeon brethren.
