  1. AMD Eyefinity technology works with games that support non-standard aspect ratios, which is required for spanning across multiple displays. To enable more than two displays, additional panels with native DisplayPort(TM) connectors, and/or DisplayPort(TM) compliant active adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your cards DisplayPort(TM) or Mini-DisplayPort(TM) connector(s), are required. AMD Eyefinity technology can support up to 6 displays using a single enabled AMD Radeon(TM) GPU with Windows Vista(R) or Windows(R) 7 operating systems — the number of displays may vary by system design and you should confirm exact specifications with the applicable manufacturer before purchase. SLS (–Single Large Surface) functionality requires an identical display resolution on all configured displays.
  2. AMD HD3D is a technology designed to enable stereoscopic 3D support in games, movies and/or photos. Additional hardware (e.g. 3D enabled panels, 3D-enabled glasses/emitter, Blu-ray 3D drive) and/or software (e.g. Blu-ray 3D discs, 3D middleware, games) are required for the enablement of stereoscopic 3D. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems — check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies.
  3. AMD EyeSpeed technology is a set of technologies available on AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6000M series and higher GPUs and is designed to improve video quality and enhance application performance. Full enablement of some features requires support for AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology and/or AMD’s Universal Video Decoder (UVD). AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing technology works with applications designed to take advantage of its GPU acceleration capabilities.
