If you want a card with atleast 3 displayport connectors and full voltage control the ASUS ROG HD 7970 Matrix Platinum is the only option. The Direct Cu II cards are voltage locked. Also the quality of the ROG Matrix platinum is vastly superior to the normal direct cu ii cards. its just an enthusiast level product for people who want to push the HD 7970.

The MSI HD 7970 Lightning has 4 mini displayports . so you would have to get mini displayport to displayport adapters.

People get a 7970 for 1 1080p monitor @ 120hz. 5760 x 1080 @ 120hz would require at least 3 7970s heh.

One is just fine should be able to max most games out but with games like crisis and bf3 you will need to turn settings down abit I was gonna start with one myself.

Far out, when I decide to spend a certain amount of money, something bigger comes along and makes me spend even more!

But the thing is, I dont want to spend another $150 on the matrix, when I could be using that money to crossfire another standard 7970.
So I want to make sure it will be able to eyefinity with no issues at 120hz

Asus cards... careful what you ask for lol.

Fyi, no single card, hell no dual cards can do 120hz on three panels. Three cards will not do it in high end triple A games like BF3.

I have an asus direct cuII 570 at the moment.
Love it, never had any issues with the card. The only downside is the 3 slots

And im fairly sure callsignvega was running 7970's in crossfire with his 120hz sammys

You need to google 7970/50 and DC2 for an eye opener. You also need to read Vegas post on that so you realize the settings were at medium.

You specifically said that it would not be able to run it on 120hz with dual cards. No level of graphics were specified....
And can you please post some links?
I'm not trying to argue, just curious what your talking about
If its the voltage issue, then the matrix will fix that due to it being unlocked..

Generally speaking, the base level of IQ is ultra, unless otherwise specified. Do you think I run quad 7970s to play at low IQ settings??


The Asus issues goes to the heart of Asus' competency. I have little faith in their gpu division. The Matrix will be how many revsions of the tahiti DC2 line now?

Single 7970 will play non-demanding games maxed with playable fps at 5760x1080. But in latest games such as Crysis 2, BF3 or modded Skyrim. You won't be able to max out those games at playable fps, maybe on Medium settings with no AA.
3x 7970 are the minimum for enjoyable 60+ fps at that resolution.
