My 3 7970s do a fine job to play quake 3 maxed out and 2012 titles med-low settings. The higher the res, the more stutter you have. Don't believe me? Fine, go ask others who own 3+ screen set ups with high res. They will confirm what I said.
*PS If you started to talk about dp and dvi, then it makes sense why you want to go for 5x1, lol
It seems like you have little understanding of Eyefinity. You can afford $500-1000 monitors but can't get a simple pns camera, ok then (or camera phone)
But seriously, your triplets are not enough for 1600 Eyefinity. Its not that its stutters, it could be you just don't have enough gpu grunt. You'll have extremely low frames running newer games. Hell, I could barely max out Metro 2033 and Crysis 2 ~50-60fps w/ quad 580 3gbs a year ago. I've been mmg for several years now and I typically do upgrade to new gpu because of the new game demands to push hardware. Also, some games perform extremely poor in mmg. Take Metro LL, in Surround, I barely scratch 60% usage but I'm still getting great frames in 1200 Surround. Where as Crysis 3 pegs all gpus at 98-99% but its extremely hard to max out in 1200 Surround w/ full aa. I didn't like the new K-monitors since they have large bezels for portrait so I haven't made the plunge to 1440/1600.
The dvi/dp issue has been known for a while but the main concern is that it creates "tearing" on the monitor w/ the different connection due to the different rates. The resolution was either Amd (or vendor) add three or more of the same connectors (ie Lightning, DC-2, etc.) or a dp solution (the hub). The extra connection solution is great for 1x3 or 3x1 Eyefinity but for 5x1, you need a display port hub. Even after releasing these long awaited hubs, I hesitated the temption of quad Tahitis due to the framepacing issue still pending a fix for Eyefinity. The member's build I posted used 120hz monitors which does alleviate the issue of tearing but the TN panels clearly creates a grayed out left side. Only ips that can push to 90+ are the Koreans. You're talking about more money where I can easily go w/ two more Dells.
I love my dells. The picture is crisp, very clean, the AG is just the right amount, they self pivot, and the quality is awesome. Rather then spending $3k on a three1600 Dells, I would rather go w/ 5x1 Eyefinity to push 6000x1920.Edited by wermad - 9/24/13 at 12:35pm
