Triple Monitor gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all, so I recently made the jump to a triple monitor set up via Nvidia 2D surround. My main motivation for this was for gaming, I have no experience with triple monitors prior to this so bare with me.

My issue/question is that in game, it seems the images on the left and right monitor are "less sharp" or maybe at a lesser resolution than the center (main) monitor. I'm not sure if this is just the effect of how triple monitor gaming is supposed to look or if I maybe need to do some tweaking or something, though I don't know how I'd go about that.

It's hard to put into words but on the side monitors, which in game would translate into my peripheral view, the pictures seems slightly closer, like the depth of the scene isn't properly displayed on the side monitors. All the images line up and everything from monitor to monitor but there's a noticeable visual difference from the center monitor to the side monitors.

Anyway, I was just wondering if this is something that can be fixed, is it supposed to be like that or what?

Running this on 3 23" HD monitors, the surround res is 6080X1080, off SLi GTX 580 3gb versions

Are all of the monitors exactly the same?

Yes, all the same monitors even all from the same seller, all settings on the monitors themselves are all the same as well.

This may just be the way it's supposed to look, it's not really bad looking or anything it's just a noticeable difference but I've never actually seen triple monitor play in person and looking at videos it's hard to really tell.

After playing around a bit it seems it's mostly just a limitation of the in-game camera. Depending on the distance and angle it kinda changes the peripheral image, I'd assume b/c the camera isn't really meant to be viewed at that large a res so it doesn't really focus that scene that far out.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with triple monitor setups and how the game is designed in general. They are attempting to create a surround effect rather then producing the actual surround.
