2560x1600x2+10809

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

I know this has been answered but I REALLY HAVE tried through searching.

 

I do a lot of work 2560x1600 on photographic viewing for projects in the Seattle area. I use an HP 30" and would like to add a second 2560x1600 monitor. Since these are dual-link monitors I am looking for advice for either;

 

1. a single card that can support 2 dual-link screens, or

 

2. 2 cards that are no more expensive than necessary to accomplish this.

 

NO GAMING is required but good smooth multi monitor support (no stuttering when swinging windows from one monitor to the other.

 

I would also like to think about 1080p to support "watching" TV/BLURAY while I am working.

 

ANY help, greatly appreciated. Finding folks who have real knowledge in high rez, 2D world is hard. I don't want some fancy PRO card because I DON'T edit these photos and maps.

 

TIA

I don't think the Lenovo Dual Displayport adapter will drive 5120x1600 in side by side mode. I think that thing is mainly for running lower (HD) resolution display port monitors, not 2560x1600p monitors.


Question for the original poster -- what do you have that monitor plugged into now? If the card has a display port AND a Dual Link DVI on it, you can plug a second monitor into the Display Port and leave the first monitor on the Dual Link DVI. That will get you two monitors on one card, with no additional expense.

Worse case is you can buy a second graphics card and attach the second monitor to that.

That really makes sense but 2 new, (more expensive) monitors AND a new card (just one needed?) is a little scar'

 

Thank you for the suggestion!

 

I would like to build a little bucket with this thread to help folks with 2D, non gaming, info! Displayport vs DVI,  2560x1600 vs 2560x1440, as well as paying for horsepower not needed would be good info for the Visual Minority!

hammong, HI!

 

My card is an Asus HD7750. Tried adding a friends hi-rez display port monitor but multi-monitor  window movement was "less than wonderful". It stuttered when moving from screen to screen.

You're not going to get great performance with any single low-end card and two 2560x1600 monitors. It's just too much resolution to be pushing around. If you want to go cheap, try and find another 7750 of the same general configuration as the one you have now, and plug that second monitor into that card.

I would consider a GTX 670 for Dual DVI-DL ports and very good performance, you can also add a third 1080 monitor to it. You get what you pay for.

WOW!

 

Can a single card handle 10,265,600 slinging around? No throttle points?

 

If so, the $s math DOES work.

 

Thanks.

Not sure if the GTX 650 Ti or GTX 660 can drive what you're asking, but they do support 2x DVI on some models.

GTX 650 Ti Boost , seems most mapping software /GIS /Inroads uses CUDA

Thank you, AlphaC!

 

My investigations so far lead me to believe that all of these dual DVI boards only have one port which is Dual-link, which is what the 2560x1600s BOTH require. Double Bummer!
