HD6950 & Eyefinity help please

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hiya peeps, am I doing something wrong here as in the catalyst software, I cant seem to set up 3 screens on my XFX HD6950 2GB 830MHz card

It will only allow me 2 screens

Is this right, I though for sure I could do 3 screens

Catalyst detects all the screens I hook up (I hooked up 4+1 - the +1 being an amp) but it will only allow me 2 screens at any time in eyefinity or normal (duplicates or extended)

Any help would be gr8, thanks

Confusing, if I plu DVI, HDMI & DP to HDMI lead into the card, no matter what I do, it will only give me the option to display 2 screens, also, if I plu the HDMI lead in then DP to HDMI lead in, then hovering over them shows DVI as DVI, HDMI as HDMI but DP as DVI. If I then disconnect & insert the DP b4 the HDMI lead then the DP shows as HDMI & the HDMI shows as DVI

Is this odd or what ??????

Don't follow what you are trying to describe. What is your monitors maximum resolution and the native inputs such as DVI, HDMI, VGA or Display Port?

Eyefinity will only support 2 legacy devices, so the third monitor must have native DP or using an Active Adapter from DP to your monitor.
