MST Displayport Hub Discussion thread. Update: new MST Hubs from Club3D (4x dp, 3x hdmi, etc.)!!!! - Page 4

A little bit of tango with Amd as usual to get things started. Also, one monitor was damaged but fortunately working (wheee.gif). Both my GB motherboard and Amd don't make it easy to plug into the right card (unlike Nvidia). I may also have a bad card but I'll take care of that later. With my setup, everything goes into the card at the bottom. Any other card will either not give me display port (possible bad card here), or I'll loose 4-way crossfire, or I'll loose pic. Also, the first three screens go into the hub and the final two into the card. Once the Eyefinity wizard was launched, it was smooth as butter at room temperature biggrin.gif.




I got a little desprate at first since the top card had no displayport signal output. So, this may have to do with the gigabyte motherboard's weird way of setting up the cards but I'll have to explore that later on as it could be a bad card. So the Hubs work cheers.gif

I just have to wrap everything up and then clean up. I was planning on finishing today but I got side-tracked helping my old man w/ some electrical work and installing a door. Can't say no to projects were power tools are involved

using Tim Allen as a meme for using power tools can only make things go spectacularly wrong given how his character on HI is portrayed as. lol biggrin.giftongue.gif

Problem with the setup is you are limited to 60 Hz displays 5x1. The output config with a 290x and the MST hub does not support the bandwidth required for 5x1 120Hz 1080P.

I don't care for 120hz since I'm more interested in IPS and pushing higher resolutions. If you look at " l88bastar's" 5x1 rig, he's running 120hz but the two left screens are grayed out enough to notice them. Learned this first hand when I got my three Asus VG 23" series a few years ago in my first MMG Surround setup. Its definitely more noticeable Portrait mode. Sure you do get more visual treat w/ 120hz but at the cost of to washed out left screens. The only Ips screens that I know that can push 120hz are the Korean modded ones. And you can't run 5x1 or 3x2 Eyefinity with these (max is 1200). Its perplexing why the industry never got around to mating these two features into a single mainstream screen. My guess is that there's a very small market for multi display setups (especially gamers) and those who prefer to run them in Portrait mode. Also, 4k is not going to help this cause at all.


Well, the only down side is that my three original Dells have a softer almost tanish tint to them while the two preowned ones I purchased have a bluer tint. The presets don't help so I'll have to fiddle with the color when i get a chance. It works and that's I was going for smile.gif. Dells pivot on their on own base so it makes life easier (and less expensive for a WSGF 5x1+1 stand ~$500).

The side screens only appeared to be greyed out because of the limitations of the photo. Taking a head on photograph of the 5x1 setup did no justice to it because the displays were curved around a focal point for a human user not a camera. I could have flattned out the displays if I wanted to show a more cohesive photograph of the setup. Here is a side shot, so you can see what I am talking about.....due to the curve of the displays there was ZERO screen crushing for the user.

I've had it with the Asus and I got the same explanation: its because of the viewing angle of TN screens. If you take a look at my photos, there's no gray out and I'm using a crappy hand held. You're also taking a pic at angle that can favor the TN panel in front of the camera. Well, to each their own but i know the viewing angles in portrait for tn panels suck. That's why i stick to ips and I've been very happy since (portrait lover). I'm sure straitening out the screens can help but then your forced to sit further back for your field of view. I had this dilemma, curve them or straighten them, I went w/ curve since my ips monitors won't gray out and I can sit closer. I'll take more pics when its up and running w/ some games to see the color. Ips rocks and can't go any other way. Unless, someone makes a 1200 ips 120hz monitor w/ a pivoting base biggrin.gif.

My new multi-surround setup is with the new Eizo 120 Hz VA panels, so viewing angle restrictions won't be a problem. I will be out of the TN game, but the 5x1 120 Hz limitation still applies to me.

The MST hub should be able to do 2x 120 Hz 1080P displays at most, but that still leaves only the HDMI port for the 5th display. Would have to find a way to overclock that port.

So, for something like a Lightning or Matrix/DC2T with multiple display ports, would the max 120hz screens be three?
