Just got my monitor set up and all I can say is HOLY C$$AP this thing is beautiful. The resolution is absolutely absurd !!! I did a simple web based pixel test and I don't see any dead or stuck pixels. With an all black screen and a dark room I cant detect any black light bleed. I am very happy !!!!! Bye Bye 1080 SUCKERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif


Bough it here for $ 325, pixel perfect SON !!!!!

Guys may I have your attention please??

I have a single Radeon 7800. I want to buy two possibly three of these. I guess I must use display port for the job and it seems I must buy the multi port version of it. I don't mind getting that as I don't plan to play games on it or watch movies, so I will be perfectly fine with stock 60Hz.

The question is: can I run 2 or 3 of these through display port on my single Radeon 7800 ?

For you this model might not be the right fit, as it only has one dual dvi link cable and is quite fussy with even the cable that is used. Mine for example would not work with my own dual link dvi cable, i had to use the one provided. You would also have to daisy chain the monitors and use DVI - DP1.2 adapters so it could get messy.

What is your exact GPU model?

What is your exact GPU model?

My GPU is: Saphire Radeon HD7870 GHz edition 2GB

It has a Single DVI, Dual DVI, HDMI and DP.


I know that getting two/three Qnix/X-Star's might not be the ideal for me. But since I'm not interested in overclocking it to 120Hz I was actually thinking about the multi-port versions:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/X-STAR-DP2710-LED-MDP-Matte-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-DP-HDMI-DVI-PC-Monitor-/321151317895?pt=AU_comp_monitor&hash=item4ac61c3787

OR

http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-DP-Multi-Matte-2560x1440-27-SAMSUNG-PLS-Monitor-/111231287794?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19e5e6c1f2

They both include DP, HDMI, DP, VGA.

As I understood by reading all those comments about them, it's impossible to clock them to 120Hz because of a different PCB or something. But since I don't mind them being 60Hz... I just need to know if I can run two or three of them on a single Display Port on my GPU?

But then on the other hand.. I wouldn't mind exploring the option of dual or triple 120Hz monitors on DVI smile.gif What would I have to do in this case?

5. tried w/ reduce dvi frequency + alternate dvi mode
6. tried w/ alternate dvi mode
7. tried every single amd driver since the initial r290 release whql
8. with and without gpu scaling set

Where is Toasty's thread btw ? is it on OCN ?

Also did you see the pics I posted? this isn't normal pixel clock is too high blue lines or anything, this is total display corruption. Like crazy colors/brown block etc

Sounds to me like you might try popping your old video card in and see if that makes the difference. Also, anyone else here using this video card and having issues?

That is true but if it does work you will narrow it down to either that AMD drivers or AMD video card.
post #11258 of 25888
it must be the card then. others here with the same one claim no issues. I can't easily RMA either cause I have it waterblocked. I just don't get why it can't seem to do over 60. no access to a real 120 monitor to test either. looks like I'm stuck @ 60hz

Try setting it to LCD reduced with the refresh still at 60hz just to see if it is timings jacked.

will do

I haven't had my whole screen change to crazy brown blocks recently like it had been, now everything just gets blurry if that means anything. Like i'll be running along fine @ 110 for a random amount of time then it gets blurry. If I set the res to 60, then back to 110 it's fine again for a bit. It makes no sense to me. The video card operates perfectly as far as I know.
