One PC displays images to 24 screens (video)

Advanced Micro Devices‘ new graphics chip will be able to display images to six different monitors at the same time. No big deal? Well, since you can fit four graphics cards in one computer, that means one PC can display graphics on 24 screens. In this video, Matthew Tipper of AMD shows us a demo of how this works. This is an enthusiast’s fantasy made possible by AMD’s new graphics chip and its Eyefinity feature. The chip can handle more than 2.5 trillion calculations per second (2.5 teraFLOPS). Technology freaks are going to love this. Never mind the cost. You can actually build something with much bigger screens than is shown here. I want one of these, but I’d have to get a new house first.

Steve Jobs, the chief executive officer of Apple, got a standing ovation as he took the stage at Apple’s media event in San Francisco today. He immediately mentioned that he had a liver transplant over the summer and now had the liver of a 20-something-year-old who died in a car crash. Looking gaunt but not frail in his signature black shirt and jeans, he said he was grateful to be there.
