Triple eyefinity setup [3x r9 290's] issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need your help trying to get my triple dell 1920 x 1080 displays to work in an eyefinity setup. I have each monitor plugged into the cards by display port 1 per r9 290. Whenever I enable crossfire only 1 of the display ports work and can't enable eyefinity setup at all what is going on?

Hello, hopefully i am understanding you correctly. You do not mention Crossfire, but i am assuming your using crossfire for my reply.
Eyefinity and crossfire will require you to use the primary display in the chain(usually top card). You will have to connect all 3 displays to one card. for instance in my case i have 2 monitors on DVI ports and 1 on display port on my primary card. (top card) Hope this helps

If your monitors only have DP connections? I use adapter cables in my setup. I don't know what effect the hub will have and if Eyefinity will work with it. I do recall there was one sold that's similar i think it was a MST hub. There is a high probability it will work, but i don't know enough about it to suggest it would. I can say for sure if you wanted you can get adapters or converter cables and it will work. They also might be cheaper in total cost but if your only wanting to use DP or only have DP then you may be on the right track. Maybe someone else has that item can comment.

I notice in it's specs it shows resolutions maximum combined. Depending on your monitors this may be an issue? Are your monitors above 1080p?
