I would love to see the 7970s push uber-sampling in Witcher 2 on three screens. drool.gif And of course BF3. biggrin.gif

How many 7970s did you pick up?

It depends. Are you referring to monitor bezel thickness with the monitors stock or modified?

Stock, It seems like the Samsungs are thinnest

I cant wait to see that! Would it be possible to see Metro 2033(it has a benchmarking tool!) too?

Metro at high settings at Eyefinity I think would bog down two 7970's pretty easily. I would need four 7970's to run it at high, but I bet I could do medium settings OK.

Here is some comparison shots between my 3x 120Hz setup and my Sony FW900. The FW900 is running 1920x1200 over very high quality Belkin studio professional BNC-5 cables. FW900 is setup with Unkle Vito's recommended 50 brightness, 100 contrast, 9300K (this monitor was calibrated by him). Graphics card is a AMD 7970. Comments are below the applicable screen shot (view original size for best view):



SANY0023.jpg

Here you can see the LCD setup has a "crisper" picture versus the CRT which appears to be "softened".



SANY0024.jpg

From a subjective standpoint, the Samsung's also appeared to have a better contrast.



SANY0025.jpg

Camera's are notorious for not capturing black images properly from displays. Subjectively in real life, the back lights on both setups were similar and surprisingly the CRT didn't offer much benefit here.



SANY0026.jpg

Here the camera captured a realistic portrayal of the white differences. The FW900 had a blue-gray tint to it while the LED back lit Samsung's had brilliant, pure whites.



SANY0027.jpg

The camera was very poor at picking up reds properly. In real life this image is scorching bright red. The FW900 had a pink'ish look to it while the Samsung's were stunning red.



SANY0028.jpg

Green's were pretty good on the FW900, but the Samsung's just had more "pop".



SANY0029.jpg

Blue's for both were surprisingly almost a perfect match. The blue's for both screens were much darker and intense than portrayed here.



SANY0030.jpg

Both had a nice picture with this image.



SANY0031.jpg

Here in a completely dark room you can see the Samsung's really over-driving the image. The FW900 work's quite well in a dark room. Here also you can see the TN viewing angle limitation on the left screen. That is because the camera has been shifted left to capture the middle point of both screens. If you sit in the middle of the Eyefinity setup, 90% of the viewing angle problems disappear. One caveat though is you must sit in the middle, not for someone who likes to sit on the couch and watch TV at crazy angles!



SANY0032-1.jpg

Here in the black room you can see both make nice images, with the Samsung's appearing to be over-driving some while the FW900 not handling the blacks/contrast as well.



SANY0033-1.jpg

From pitch black room to a back light. As you can see, this is where the Samsung's really have an awesome image. The FW900 wasn't too affected by the back light and still looked pretty good. In this shot you can also see a bit of the natural blurriness of the CRT.



SANY0034-1.jpg

And now with all the interior room lights on (it is dark outside). The LCD's still hold up really well with all the extra lighting. Here you can see the FW900 starting to look washed out. In fact, this is one of my largest gripes with using it. Ambient light really affects the picture in a really bad way. In my room here during the daytime, I have blinds to cover all of the windows. They are just normal blinds to block direct sunlight, they are not "black-out" blinds. Unfortunately there are seven large windows in this room. Even with all of them with closed blinds, the ambient light is enough to completely wash out the FW900 picture. The Samsung's still work pretty good.

I will try and get a picture tomorrow of the FW900 in the room lit by non-direct, ambient light diffused through shades.

One thing the FW900 does (in a dark room), is provide a pretty nice picture that is super smooth. Although it does seem somewhat "blurry" compared to a LCD image, the blurriness has it's own like-able quality. Maybe it is because you don't need as much AA? smile.gif

I went from a 6990 not being able to get 2304x1440 and I still cannot with the new 7970 cards and new drivers. It's like the driver has something built in that does not allow that resolution, no matter what .inf's say. I'd love to get that resolution as games look really good! Getting that resolution is so easy on my GTX580, but it doesn't have enough horsepower like my 2x 7970's to run that.

So are there still AMD users out there that are able to get 2304x1440 somehow? If so, what exactly did you do? I have tried BNC cables, VGA cables, removed EIDI pins, many different .inf's off this thread, created my own .inf's, registry edits, power-strip. Nothing seems to work! The AMD driver keeps telling me my max resolution is 2048x1536 crappy 4:3.

It is nice though having the best monitors from each technology IMO.

How are you liking the FW900 otherwise? In general and perhaps compared to the samsungs.

Well, you edited something in. Anyway.

The FW900 has it's pro's and con's versus LCD just like any other display. I do like that it has a nice high resolution for it's screen size and that it is super smooth in FPS. Although in clarity and colors I think the Samsung's work out better. The largest problem like I mentioned was the FW900 get's terribly washed out with any ambient lighting.

On another note: For those that are interested in Eyefinity and how 7970's run a 120Hz Eyefinity setup in BF3 here is a video I made (make sure to increase to 720p):

You should really invest on a good calibration kit, like i1Pro with Calman.At home, I have a 350 pounds 40'" Sony CRT, a plasma Pioneer Elite Kuro, a 4k projector, 3 HP 30" Eyefinity, 3 LG 24" Eyefinity for the kids, and for all of those, a good calibration is making a night and day difference...

You think the picture is good. But after a good calibration you realized it was not.

Aren't you the kid who was flaming Vega trying to say he lives in mommy's basement and doesn't fly choppers for a living? You also called him a liar in his tests showing 4 6970s incapable of supporting triple 30" resolutions due to bandwidth constraints on the 3 bridges based on results from 6990s(lol) with only one bridge?
