But allowing 2 screen surround would let people with other 4K screens that use split input and are not in the list to get reasonable experience.
Just supporting two screen surround is a miserable idea.
I don't know why you guys want it.
It would mean dealing with all the issues that surround has, like crappy snapping per monitor (when you only have one monitor, that would have to be disabled), issues with the task bar. Last I checked, using surround limits you to one auxiliary display as well, even if you have 12 possible outputs on three cards. I for one want to use two side panels in addition to my 4k, whenever I get it.
Other screens will just have to be added to the list in the future.
With this method, they are not treating it as surround at all. Just a single monitor with two inputs. This is ideal... at least it will be once the bugs are all ironed out.Edited by Masta Squidge - 7/20/13 at 8:49am
