    But it is not exactly silent.
    Yes, but you can't use 4 of those to drive a 3d application on 16 displays.

    Much as I'd like to see this, there's simply no way that Ati will release this functionality on desktop cards.

        Looks like garbage

        With those bezels it looks like garbage.

        What is the goal here? To create a giant display? To have a ultra high resolution display? Both?

        Dear god use projectors already. Then you'd have no bezel and keep the resolution and go even bigger. Or, you could keep the size, and go lower resolution with just 4 projectors.

          If they do not support, in Linux, all the features that are currently in Windows for the present batch of cards and IGPs, including those cards well over two years old -- I wonder when they will acutally support in linux all the features in these new cards?

          2025?

              I don't think Phoronix has the original video files of the entire YouTube website.

              PS: You can also install the YouTube downloader firefox add-on and play the .flv file with vlc...

                Maybe I even don't want to use mp3? (software patents). Gnash does not work so well here. And why the hell flash for videos? -.-

                I thought michael made this video, so I thought he had the source video file.

                  Rofl. You are only infringing if you redistribute/sell MP3 encoders/decoders. VLC has a free implementation. MP3 is not video moron. MP4 is, so what has this to do with all of this?

                  Because maybe you wanted to watch a video, but I guess you just want to complain? <_<'

                    Actually no. MP4 is a container. It might contain sound encoded in eg AAC, MP3, MP2 and various others. Heck, it might contain various video codecs from h.264 to MPEG2.
                    I admit video/audio/container standardization is pretty much a bloody mess... Have to be careful there to get the right impression.

                      Then again, listening to MP4 that has MP3 as sound codec is never forbidden anyway, only creating one without a license is.
