Also, I'm going to try to write a synopsis of how to get these guys working in eyefinity for the OP if you don't mind correcting any errors in my steps below.
1. Flash to 50 inch firmware.
2. Use pixel patcher.
3. Remove pin number 16 from DVI cables.
4. Using two DVI to HDMI cables and 1 active displayport to DVI to HDMI attach tvs to card.
Is that correct?
Finally, what is your opinion on the best way to game at 4k on the TV is? At 30hz with vsync I was getting some input lag that was unbearable for me. Without vsync I was getting screen tearing. I found the best way was to use RadeonPro to lock the FPS to 31 (I overclocked my refresh rate to 33) and keep vsync on. This fixed input lag for the most part.
Do you have another way that you deal with screen tearing/input lag?
Thanks for your other thread. It's awesome
I should have came back and thanked you for this thread. I almost ended up spending way more on the dell 24inch/samsung TN panel 27inch. I know 30hz is a no go for most people. I couldn't bring myself to spend an insane amount of money for 4k technology that's still changing and maturing. My thread wouod be nonexistent if yours wasnt here.
No problem i will try to offer my help.
Step 1 -is not required but i would recommend due to 39'inch firmware having an annoying sleep timer that even when "off" still bugs me.
Step 2 - Required for me on AMD GPU's IF going to Eyefinity 3 of these.(this may change when they release a driver that doesn't have the pixel clock so low?)
Step 3 -Optional especially if people don't feel good about hardware mods. My reason for doing this was to stop windows from removing/adding a display when entering a game. It would cause various issues with hot plug detection where eyefinity would disable, or the game would run without crossfire.
Step 4 - Hardware dependent
-was because i thought AMD R9 series only allowed to use 1 of the 3 ports(DVI,DVI,HDMI) I have since been told you can use the HDMI port and both DVI ports on an AMD R9 series GPU. Apparently, something like a 7970 does have that restriction, however the port arrangement could vary based on model?
I haven't got to mess with the vsynch/input lag much at all. Me personally i preferred Radeon Pro "dynamic" FPS limiter to 60FPS. I have not used proper vsynch yet because AMD 13.12WHQL drivers have broken vsynch on R9 series.
hope that helps some
