  • Support for up to six high-resolution displays or projectors from a single-slot card
  • Six Mini DisplayPort connectors
  • 2GB of GDDR5 graphics memory for high-performance multimedia
  • Support for two HD video streams via AMD’s Unified Video Decoder
  • Projection overlap capability to create one seamless image, with planned support for projection edge blending and image warping in Q4 of 2012
  • Maximum power consumption of 75W
  • AMD PowerTune technology that dynamically optimizes power consumption during operation
  • AMD ZeroCore Power technology that provides reduced power consumption at idle
