From the future, XFX is looking at the technology that made their optic implant possible. Yesterday, AMD announced their Eyefinity technology for their upcoming graphics cards coming out in a month.

What's Eyefinity? Well it allows for a single card to support up to six displays at once.You can have various combinations of displays in various positions as you can see from AMD's website. To demonstrate what they can do with this technology, you can see from Legit Review's coverage that AMD was capable of driving 24 displays with four of their upcoming DirectX 11 video cards from one system. Yeah, that's pretty awesome. Not practical but awesome.

XFX  offers up this small video from the future on what was the starting point for their optical implant technology. Yeah, one day we're going to go all Strange Days or The Matrix and experience these games without any need for a monitor.

To celebrate this industry-wide first, XFX is taking an historic look back to the original 2009 technologies responsible for the Optic Implant:

ATI Eyefinity from AMD allowed gamers to discover a new realm of “surround-sight” 3D graphics with advanced multiple-display technology.1 Supporting up to six independent display outputs simultaneously, ATI Eyefinity delivered innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces, immersive playing environments, and ultra-wide views for a panoramic computing experience.2 Offering easy setup and flexible multi-display configuration, ATI Eyefinity technology added a new visual sensation to the complete Windows® 7 experience—and moved the future of graphics a step closer to the lifelike “holodeck” environment which was then science fiction.

First introduced with ATI Stream technology-enhanced graphics to maximize multicore processing and AMD next-generation DirectX 11 graphics, gamers back in 2009 could, for the first time, Pivot three monitors from landscape mode to portrait mode for an optimal gaming solution delivering an aspect ratio superior to most of the time’s modern big-screen HDTV displays.2 This technology allowed for play with greater spatial awareness using the side monitors for peripheral vision, giving gamers the ability to detect enemies sooner, react faster, and survive longer in first-person-shooter games and flight combat simulators. 2009 gamers could finally enjoy more control with a commanding view of the action in real-time strategy games, and feel a heightened sense of speed in racing games. Multiple portrait-mode displays with ATI Eyefinity technology also gave users a competitive edge at work, enabling them to see more data at a glance with legal-size documents, extra-long spreadsheets, web pages, and more.
