XL2420TE - Page 3

post #21 of 43
Just ordered three. Going to remove the matte film and give them a whirl. I hope this panel doesn't have inverse ghosting issues like the other non-1MS panels out there!

I await your LightBoost tests! I'd love to see how well the XL2420TE does LightBoost, and how brightly (compared to VG248QE), as well as how good the image looks during LightBoost, compared to VG248QE (poor colors) and XL2420T (excess ghosting/inversion artifact).

I would want the matte removed as well so I am interested in your results with colors and brightness after it is off. Since you are running Titans and likely these 3 in surround will you use the HDMI for the third monitor to get to 120 or 144hz? Or will the single link DVI port work at 144hz? To my understanding Nvidia surround works in the same manner as AMD in that you have to run all monitors off the main GPU. I know the HDMI works at 120hz for me and my 1 samy 750D just fine.

No, Surround works with a monitor plugged into each GPU. IMO a superior way to Crossfire, as with Crossfire you can run out of suitable ports really fast.

Really EVGA told me I had to run everything off one card which I am doing right now. So I can run my 750 of the DP port on the other card and it will work. I am just using extended and surround. I will have to try that out tonight.

You can run extended and surround off of one card if there is only one GPU. If you are SLI and have 3 monitor Surround, the inputs must be split between the two cards.

I tried to hook my other DP display to my other card and it says that I can not do it when SLI is enabled. If I choose activate all displays in SLI configuration it disables SLI as well. So what am I missing? Unless you are saying that extended wont work splitting connections between cards and only surround will.

Looks like the thread went in a different direction, but I'm very interested on the off topic discussion since I have a similar setup on my next update on my rig and monitor setup. So I'm not totally off topic, I did order 3 of the older models (XL2420T) over the weekend since they were $279 each - Amazon Prime. I thought it was good deal since Newegg still sells them for $349. I hope I made the right choice... because I am constantly thinking I should have bought 3 Asus VG248QE monitors instead. frown.gif

Anyhow... I also bought 3 GTX 780's for 3-way SLI on for when I do my RIVE 4930k update build hopefully in September... but still plan on using my GPU's and monitors with my current rig... if my GPU's get to me earlier (scheduled early sept).

I went to Nvidia's website to read the Introduction to SLI Technology. It was good read, and at the time... I was only going to buy one quality monitor. Then I seen some great triple monitor setups... and that's when I decided to get the BenQ monitors.

Now to the off topic discussion... LOL..tongue.gif

I went to the 2D/3D Surround Minimum System Requirements page on Nvidia's site, and that's when I got confused on multi monitors setup for the GTX 780 cards.

After selecting GeForce GTX 780 for my card, I only get one option to select under "SLI Mode":



NOTE: Other cards have additional options: 2-Way SLI, 3-Way SLI...

Next, is the "Surround Mode" option:



And last is the Landscape/Portrait "Orientation" option (no screen but you get the idea). When you click the "Find Configuration" button, it gives you all the display options for multiple monitors.



It kind of makes sense to do this after reading the Introduction to SLI Technology page on Nvidia's site... but it doesn't really follow the other GTX series card configurations... so that is what confuses me. But... do you really need to connect all monitors to separate cards to enjoy surround... and benefit SLI technology?

I'm not sure if I can... or even try to connect 3 monitors on separate GTX 780 cards like the 3-Way SLI Titan configuration... and other GTX cards in 3-Way SLI. confused.gif

Exactly. NVIDIA "Surround" only means one thing. Three monitors spanned to create one image. Completely different than extended.

As for the other question, Surround can be performed via a single GPU such as the 780 and Titan. Obviously all connections must be to the sole GPU. If you use two GPU's, one connection goes to one GPU and two go to another. If you use three GPU's, one monitor connects to each GPU. Etc..

LOL Vega, now I have to wait and see how those turn out before I buy a new monitor......
