[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 837

post #8361 of 25935
Anyone running two of these Korean monitors from the same GPU? Right now my primary is a Shimian (16 months and still perfect!), and my secondary is an old Samsung TN that I'm looking to replace with one of these PLS monitors. My GPU is a GTX670, so I only have the one duallink DVI-D connection, hooked up to the Shimian.

So here's the question: if I get a multi-input QNIX, is the full 1440 resolution possible via displayport or HDMI? The GTX670 also has a duallink DVI-I, but the product descriptions all say that won't work.

Sorry if this is a dumb question; I haven't really kept track of this stuff since I got my Shimian. Thanks in advance.

So, apparently the guys who sell the Overlord Tempest monitors are planning on making a G-Sync version...

From my understanding, Displayport will, not HDMI, unless it's the new version.

Also, I have a GTX 770 2GB, and will have two of these setup sometime this week, so will let you know.

The product descriptions are wrong. You can run both a Shimian and Qnix off a single GTX 670, via both DL-DVI-D or DL-DVI-I. As for your question, DP will run at 1440p, but HDMI will not.

Thanks. After some research, I figured out that a male d/l DVI-D cable works just fine with a female d/l DVI-I port, and have confirmed that by switching my Shimian to the DVI-I. So it looks like I won't have to do anything special to get my dual-IPS setup going. Great success.

How is this blb? The camera makes it look WAY worse than it actually is.

Also is it normal for the panel to be a bit loose? (It has a few mm of give if I press it in.)

Weird that i get the opposite result to others?? Changing it at 96hz makes no difference to the pixel clock on any setting, all stay at 386. Think i'm going to stick with automatic standard as that clocks down at idle, i'm down from 56 degrees at idle to 38, big difference.. if it's safe?

I think yours is very similar to mine, bottom right top right.

So it looks like a DL-DVI => DP passive adapter kinda works, but since my 7950 only has mini-DP, it has to be DL-DVI=>DP(passive adapter)=>mini-DP(passive adapter). It won't go anywhere past 60Hz with this setup and will produce these lines that "blink" in and out of the screen. Not really viable via passive adapters, though an active adapter produces clear signals.

This looks similar to what I see when I take a photo, but in real life, I see about 95% black with a bit of bleeding or possibly just IPS/PLS glow at the top. Outside of an all-black background, I don't see this at all, even in dark movies/games. As long as you're not seeing it in your normal operations, it should be good.

When setting to manual clocks, do you adjust the Front porch, sync width, and back porch? I'm using the settings that jerrolds previously posted and it works like a charm.

The only downside to 120Hz would be the gamma shift, but if I set my gamma level to 1.35 (from 1.00) in AMD CCC, it gets close to my colors at 60Hz.

Cheers man, i was looking for the AMD timings last night and couldn't find them anywhere! ...However now i think i'm just going to stick with the auto settings at 386 pixel clock for 96hz as i have already done a calibration that i'm happy with with the spyder elite, re doing the timings would mean a re calibration as it would shift the gamma differently wouldn't it?
