Reading the product literature, the W9000 claims to support 6 indepedent displays, but the whitepapers describe it more as a shared workspace, typically a 3x2 array, etc.  We are looking to set up an operations center with one large main projection display framed with 4 60" LCD's.  Each display would be showing completley different applications.  Can we do this with the W9000? What else hardware/software-wise is required?

While the majority of the paperwork will say 3x2 and 6 screens (the maximum that the card can do), you can easily run 5 independent monitors on the W9000, you just need to ensure that you have at least 3 active connections (Mini DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort direct, or using an active mDP adapter from www.amd.com/dongles) out of the 5 coming out of the card. Once you have the appropriate adapters and install the software from the CD or our website, you will be able to configure your 5 monitors independently, or combine them as you see fit.
