Here we have PowerColor's Radeon HD 5970 "12" edition, sporting - you guessed it - twelve display ports. The additional set of ports are provided via a daughterboard that attaches to the rear of the card. The card therefore takes up 3 expansion slots, but if you've got room for twelve displays you've probably got room for a big case. Obviously there aren't many consumer applications for this besides e-peen enlargement, but PowerColor reckons there will be professional interest in the solution.

so how much would 2 of these cost?

18 is getting a bit silly. Cool, though. Soon, bigger motherboards (and E-EATX cases) (and desks, for the monitors) might be needed.
