The blog, known for editorializing what enthusiasts can do with Microsoft products, combined three 3840 x 2160 monitors into a 3x1 Eyefinity configuration at 60 Hz; the screen, itself, measures about 7 feet diagonally.

In games like Far Cry Primal, the GeForce GTX 1080 was pumping away at 17FPS average, and while that's far from playable, it beat the Titan X by 3FPS (or 21).

In The News From around the web

Triple 4K displays are totally not common, but it gives us a great look into the future of GPUs and the huge resolutions on their way.
Right now there's only a very small handful of people who would be gaming on a monstrous 11,520 x 2160 resolution as cost is a big roadblock there.

Zotac Releases PCI-E x1 Version of NVIDIA GT 710 Graphics Card

by Sebastian Peak |
Granted, you won't be doing much gaming on a GT 710, which features 192 CUDA cores and 1GB of DDR3 memory, but this card does provide support for up to 3 monitors via DVI, HDMI, and VGA outputs.
With a single-slot design, low-profile ready (with a pair of brackets included), and that PCI-E x1 interface, this card can go places where GPUs have never been able to go (AFAIK).

3dfx Voodoo 3 2000 PCI Unboxing - What year is it??!?

by Ryan Shrout |
You do a classic unboxing and then try to get that PCI graphics card from 1999 up and running and playing some Unreal Tournament.
What do you do when you have a new, in box 3dfx Voodoo 3 2000 graphics card that gets some water damage?
However if Phi comes to the LGA Socket, it will loose GDDR5 and best case scenario have the DDR4 memory.
Now thing is even though its bandwidth will drop to 150GB/s it can have memory up to 256 GB which might be a nice compromise – if utilized.
