This product can also be compared to the mid-range Radeon HD 5830, which has lower specifications overall, including 1GB of memory and support for only 3 external monitors. The Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 has a clock speed of 850MHz, a memory clock of 1.2GHz and a potential data throughput of 4.8Gbps.
