Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 121

post #1201 of 11298
At the bottom of the stand are two flathead looking screws with eh... "thumb handles" is the best way I could describe them. Just unscrew them and attach the bottom circular pedestal to the stand. Then screw them back at the bottom. Easy enough to do without tools. I hope that made sense. English is not my first language. biggrin.gif

Oh awesome, I got it thank you Dreamtwister: ), God this monitor is wonderful. Zero dead pixels too. Totally happy with this purchase.

(A heads-up for other Dutchies wanting to place an order, you'll have to pay about 45 euros for tax and import rights blah blah.)
I offered him 30 bucks extra to make sure I would get one without dead pixels, in the end he actually did it for free. And indeed, it's come in with no dead or stuck pixels, and I can't even detect much backlight bleed at all. Heck, even the stand seems straight. It is wobbly though as others reported, but I can live with that. It's not like my desk moves a lot.
Image quality is vastly superior to my old '22 1680x1050 Sammy now standing sadly in the corner of my room. Colors are much more vibrant and clear, contrast also is lots better.
Playing Skyrim on this was a bit overwhelming at first, actually, but I got accustomed to it quickly enough biggrin.gif
Here are some pics I made earlier today:
Packaging looked tight, double bubble wrapped. The box itself had a few minor dents but seemed uncompromised otherwise.

Oh bw, it's a C2 obviously as I can't go above 66Hz.
For me this really is a perfect monitor. smile.gif

Haven't gotten mine yet.
But i noticed in these pics, you don't have the white lettering on the top left and right of the bezel.
I recall someone earlier mentioning they wanted to get rid of those painted on letterings.

Are there different versions of the same model sold by different sellers?

It's there, just hard to see.

Anyone know if two 2GB 680s will be enough for all three? I was about to get two 7970s but the leaked benchmarks for the 680s stopped me. I can't be the only one trying this?

Oh, ok, so they all have it then.
That sucks, was hoping mine wouldn't.

DAYUM! 2 680s should be more than enough dont you think? However, i would use the wait and see approach on the benchmarks from all the major sites before putting down another $1000 for gfx cards

Sorry mate. Not enough vram on 680's for a triple display setup of this nature. Sadly, you'll have to go 7970. Or...wait a few weeks for a 7990.

Nvidia sais Quad-Display 1920x1080 on a single 680. i bet two of thous suckers will be more then enough for this.
But "Nvidia sais" smile.gif I have no idea myself.

It's probably a safe bet that the answer to the question of how much vram a 3x1 eyefinity configuration of these panels would take is basically As Much As Humanly Possible wink.gif

Simply storing a *single* raw frame of framebuffer data for 3 of these would take 32MB of space (compared to, say, 6MB for a single 1080P image) - and there are many such frames stored at any one time, not to mention all kinds of other data related to pixel size... you *might* get away with 2GB, but the thing to keep in mind is that with multi-gpu solutions you don't get to add up your total memory; each card needs to store an effectively full copy of all data, so you've only got 2GB effective (not 4GB) - 3GB would be a much safer bet.

4 1920x1080 windows is only 12% more pixels than *2* of these monitors - and when it comes to memory scaling limits adding more cards won't really help you so... wink.gif
