eyefinity refresh rate

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Long story short im going to be setting up my eyefinity setup within a few days, and im going to get some new monitors, but i was wondering if eyefinity supports refresh rate change, i have three 6970's in tri fire, i wanted to get all 3 of my monitors running in eyefinity to have a 120hz refresh rate each, i would obviously get 3 monitors that support a 120hz refresh rate, but will eyefinity support that ?

Eyefinity supports refresh rate of 120Hz. Make sure the monitors have NATIVE DVI-Dual Link and Displayport 1.1 & 1.2 support 120Hz. Well, most monitors with 120 Hz have native DVI & DP, but check for sure. Because none of the AMD Validated Dongles that I know of supports refresh rate more than 60Hz.

The 3 monitors setup (no adapter):

1. DVI - DVI - DP or
2. DVI - DP - DP or
3. DP - DP - DP

The monitors i would be going with are the acer gd235hz they have the dvi output on them for a 120hz, so they would all be supported and you could run eyefinity at a 120hz on all 3 monitors correct ?

It has DVI-Dual Link but no Displayport. Suggest get monitors with Native DVI-Dual-Link and Native Displayport 1.1 or 1.2. As explained above none of the AMD Validated Dongles supports a refresh rate of more than 60Hz.

Apples has MiniDP-VDI Dual Link Active Adapter but I doesn't work, at least on mine. It works from my MacBook but not on AMD card.
