7970 Lightning unable to detect IPS display. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
This isn't a no name cheap card and buying a monitor with such a big res and no mini DP is a waste of money.

"Superior dp" is a lame excuse considering dual link dvi as I stated even no name cheap cards have it. They decided not to, their lost. Meanwhile you can grab say an asus dc2t with 2 dvi (one of those is dual link) and 4 "superior" DP connectors and problem solved. My irony is I don't understand their decison on this, looked to me as a no brainer but oh well.
What we're understanding here is 1) you cheaped out on your display 2) not willing to use DP

Go ahead and buy the DC2 if you want but it isn't targeted at real overclockers nor is it binned for.
I know what you did there. You cheaped out on a korean panel.

If you see my rig I have a gtx 780,you can say I cheap out on the display (if by your standard 500$ is cheap....) and my korean ips does not use dp and needs dual link dvi for 120 hz @ 1440p , technically cheap is not the point since there are no official 1440p panels @120hz out there (at least that i know of) I will gladly buy some "quality" 1440p 120hz ips when someone decides to make them for sure with lots of needed options! my only sadness is way back I wanted a 7970 lightning and no dvi dl was a huge turn off for me frown.gif i still get nostalgia when i see one lol

All I am getting at is display port is the future. You just refuse to use it.

You are correct it is the future, I don't refuse it by any means it's just my choice of monitor a year back didn't have it. Im pretty sure my next one will when manufacturers decide to make some 1440p panels @ 120hz biggrin.gif

Thats what active adapters are for. But as long as you get my point. The 7970 lightning having 4 mini DP means there is no point to the DVI DL. Thats all I'm trying to get at. I mean there was a ref 7970 that just had all mini display. No DVI, no HDMI, just mini DP.
