    It's very nice to see these extensions getting crossed off!

    I'm currently rocking (for the moment) a Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity Edition in my desktop since all my most powerful GPUs are temporarily used for other purposes. My 5870 was driving six 1920x1200 monitors 24x7 at my workplace up until a few months ago - which I only swapped out because I upgraded to 4K monitors which the card could not drive at 60Hz. Before that, I had purchased the card from someone who used it for mining. It's been through hell but has never given me any problems.

    Wikipedia says this card was released back in 2010. To put its age into perspective, the card has ATI Radeon written over the top in large text.

    So I was very happy with the OpenGL version bump to 4.2 the other day. This card is now significantly more useful. Big shout out to David for his efforts!

    Just days after David Airlie landed R600g image shader support and other patches for this Radeon HD 2000 through HD 6000 series open-source driver, he's enabled support for another GL4 extension...
