post #4191 of 11285
This may be a bit off topic but...

I don't understand why using amd vision gpu's won't work for this monitor, i was going to buy a new gpu before encountering this monitor because i already have a 990fx mobo and the AMD Phenom II X4 955 (was gonna upgrade to the AMD FX-8150 Zambezi)...but i right now have the GeForce GTX 560 gpu... I was shooting to get the "Tri Scorpion effect" when using all amd fx (cpu,gpu,mobo)

Does amd make any gpu's with nvidia chipsets? To achieve this awesome level of "performance" and still use this amazing monitor?

Does anyone think the whole "Scorpion Effect" is just a lil gimmick?

Thanks in advance smile.gif

No,  do you realize that AMD and Nvidia are rival company's ?

 

"Tri Scorpion effect" sounds like a complete gimmick and marketing rubbish.

 

You would most likely almost certainly  at this time get better performance from an Intel CPU and motherboarde, then go with AMD or Nvidia for your GPU.

 

I am using this monitor with H7970 crossfire and have had no problems yet.

im thinking about buying 3 of these monitors and running eyefinity or whatever its called with nvida.can any1 tell me if there any graphics cards that will run them. i know the 690 has 3 dvi outs but not sure it will work and i know 1 of these monitors comes with hdmi out but i though i read that cant run hdmi at max resolution on the monitor? is this correct? if not then ill get the 1s with hdmi out but if not will 690 run all three? any info would be much appricioated.

on the manufactures website they only list so many gpus that are not compatible and a majority of them are from amd.

The term "scorpion effect" was just a way of describing the performance outcome when using all amd... quoted on the video i linked

Thanks but i need more support on this

Edit: i just realized that my mobo allows me to do both 2 way SLI and 2 way CrossFireX but the pci slots are 2.0x16 and i cant find any good ati gpu's with that interface worth buying...kinda pointless now rolleyes.gif

I think there is a concept error in your thought process here. You are assuming that you would be able to return it for dead pixels... the soutb korean policy for these monitors is that if there is less than a certain number of dark and light pixels in each sector of the screen then the screen is perfectly acceptable.
Perfect pixel actually isnt a guarantee you will have zero pixels flawed, but that it has been checked and is less likely...

Wow. Just wow. I signed in to reply just to this post. I think you need to disregard everything you "know".

You can use any GPU, it will run the same speed in either an AMD or Intel setup, there is no boost or "scorpion effect". The only boost you'll get is using a newer Intel CPU (sandybridge, ivybridge) over AMD's bulldozer, this is only because bulldozer is a poor performing CPU.

I don't know where you are getting this list of incompatible GPU's, they will all work. A PCI-e 3.0 card will work in a 2.1, 2.0 or 1.1 slot. Just buy the fastest card or cards you can afford. The fastest being GTX 680's.

I just plugged the monitor into a DL-DVI (dual link) port on my HD7970, using a DL-DVI (dual link) cable that I was using from my previous 24" 120Hz monitor.

There is a DL-DVI cable supplied with the monitor, I am not sure of its quality, as I didn't use it.

 

GPU's with PCI-e 3 x16 slots are backwards compatible, so they will work fine in a PCI-e 2 x16 slot.

 

Not all AMD cards have a DL-DVI port (MSI Lighting HD7970 for one I know rolleyes.gif, cool move AMD), dont know for Nvidia, but have seen people saying they have used this monitor with cards as far back as the GTS 250 .

Not necessarily true. They must have a DL-DVI port and support the resolution. The majority of cards have both, but there are some that don't.

680s (also, the 690, hah) aren't necessarily the fastest, but they do win at stock settings.

Not AMD's fault, MSI went non-reference. AMD has plenty of issues I'm not going to delve into here with the 2B monitors.

Yes I meant MSI as it is non reference, thanks for pointing that out.

 

And yes, AMD have plenty of issues with the 2B monitors, but this it when overclocking the refresh rate, so as you say, there is no need to delve into here.
