AMD and Samsung Demonstrate Seamless Multi-Display Experience with ATI Eyefinity Technology

AMD (NYSE: AMD) and Samsung today showcased new thin-bezel displays that enable the most seamless multi- display experience yet with ATI Eyefinity technology on select ATI Radeon™ HD graphics cards, by minimizing display edges to enable a super high resolution panoramic computing experience.1 Additionally, AMD announced the creation of a new ATI Eyefinity Validation program, designed to help consumers easily identify displays, adapters, software and other components, that have demonstrated their ability to enable an outstanding experience with ATI Eyefinity technology.
Samsung thin-bezel displays: improving on the already jaw dropping “ATI Eyefinity” experience:
  • Samsung’s new MD230 displays feature bezels that are 50% to 70% thinner than traditional displays, making for a more seamless ATI Eyefinity experience.
  • The new displays are expected to be available in early 2010 from Samsung reseller and distribution channels starting at an MSRP of USD$3,099 for a six-screen configuration and USD$1,899 for a three-screen configuration.
  • Attendees of this year’s CES can see the thin-bezel display demonstration at AMD’s exhibit located in the Grand Lobby (GL-8 and GL-10) of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The MD230 will also be on display at the Samsung booth in the Central Hall #11026. ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology allows PC users to connect up to six displays to a single ATI Radeon™ HD graphics card for the ultimate in immersive game play, improved productivity, and HD multimedia, at up to 12 x full HD resolution.2
