post #2261 of 3943
out of curiosity i will be soon making this venture into this genre with my computer, was curious if anyone is using 560ti Hawks, sli'd to setup an eyefinty.. i'm new to this perspective, so just curious how it should workout!

sorry didnt initially realize i was in ati/amd.. wrong category, just seen from my other club im in for the CM690 that someone had it in their profile...

Here ya go:

http://www.overclock.net/t/997384/nvidia-surround-club

http://www.overclock.net/t/780396/nvidia-surround-gaming

I've ran mostly Nvidia and have some experience with Surround. First, you need a card with some good amount vram and secondly you need a good amount of horsepower to push three screens. I can tell you if your ti are not the 2gb you will have a huge performance hit on three screens. The 560 ti is a great card and better in sli for a single monitor but three screens will really tax them. If you're serious about Surround, upgrade your cards. I got great performance from three 470s, three 560 ti 448s (these can tri-sli, yours can't frown.gif ), tri 580s, and quad 480s. The alternative would be to buy a large resolution single monitor like a Catleap (2560x1440). This should be ok with your two 560s ti models. If you must run three screens, consider a couple of highend cards like a couple of 570s or 480s. Keep in mind the power, heat, noise, and component requirements. The sweet spot ihmo is triple sli 470s or 560 ti 448s. What they lack in slightly less vram you can make up with more horsepower. If you have any questions, hit up either club, I've seen a few members running sli 560 ti (albeit 2gb) versions in Surround. I can tell you that some of them wished for a bit more oomph. Good luck and if you ever decide to go with Amd/Ati cards, they follow pretty much the same principle except most high Amd cards can run three screens on a single card (doesn't mean perfomance will be the top most, hence why I ended up upgrading to three cards, and then upgrading my mb for this upgrade, and upgrading psu as well).

Thank you sir, well i will definitely look into this, i havent gone to far in depth i currenty just run 2 monitors not specifically for a certain setup just a 27in hd monitor and and standard 19in, my 19 in was just the on i had before, dont use it much besides to have websites, youtube or music going on so i can watch it while i game lol... i run both of them off one card and it dont even budge performance, i do realize the more screens i get and more resolution i push i will need more performance, but i will probably give it a shot with my current rig, which is decently beastly atm tongue.gif shall see, give some time, i just need to get my kids ready for school then i can go back to buying **** for myself smile.gif

Anyone else running 7970 crossfire/trifire eyefinity getting issues with 12.6/12.7? I have been having lockups where the image will be frozen on the screen and I have to hold power button down to restart system. Also trifire is not working with a few games. Dirt showdown, crysis 2 and a few others are like a slide show with trifire. BF3 and Max Payne 3 performance wise are fine, minus the screen lock-ups. I noticed that the gpu load is low on the games giving low performance. It is almost like the load is split up on the 3 card to what would = 99% load on a single card.

I am running:

3 asus 27 inch monitors 1 dvi, 2 Displayport
Trifire msi reference cards
I7 3960x @ 4.5 ghz have tried at default settings.
Asus rampage iv extreme bios 1101
16 gb corsair quad channel 2133 mhz kit.
H100 cooler.

Running a single card in eyefinty works fine no lockups. Crossfire performance is good in the games I listed. Trifire I get the same lock ups as crossfire but low performance in some games. I have tried each card individually and all work well on eyefinty solo. I have moved around cards and tried each as master. I have clean installed win 7 on every driver set since 12.4!

Now I can create a AFR friendly profile for the games with low performance in trifire. The performance is good like this but some games have flashing textures at random. I dont think the profiles are working in trifire with a lot of the games. Making the AFR profile gpu's are 90-99%.

Anyways thought I would share my disappointment. I have the 3rd card disabled until they sort this out. I have had nothing but problems running the 7970's in crossfire/trifire eyefinity. I am starting to regret going wit these cards.

hey guys trying to figure out what i need cable/adapter wise ive got 3 24 inch asus monitors with 1 D-sub 1DVI-D and 1hdmi. My graphics card has 2 mini display ports 1dual link dvi port and 1 hdmi port any help would be great my brain hurts and its 04:30 am here and i have 3 hours left of my night shift cheers

right so i think i have figured it out, first monitor would be DVI to active mini dp adapter, second monitor will be dvi to mini dp with passive adapter and third will be dvi to dvi that sound ok ?

I posted this in the AMD/ATI forum but was told to come here for more information:

I'm upgrading my computer in a month or so and will likely go with a 7970 CF setup and 3 crossover 27q (Korean imported monitors), I'd like to run these monitors in Eyefinity if it's possible, I also already have an active DP-DVI adapter. I was looking at getting 2 Sapphire vapor x 7970s however noticed it has only (1 DVI-D, 1 DVI-I, HDMI and a DP port) I read some about you having to have all connected through DVI-D for this setup to avoid screen tearing etc? If so does this mean this card will not work and if it doesn't which brand and card would I have to go with?

Do you know if HDMI/DVI to DVI, DP to DVI and DVI to DVI would work for gaming across 3 monitors, although they aren't DVI-D?

Thanks in advance

Edit: This will be a 7680x1440 Eyefinity setup

nooooooo
dont use passive adapters
use 2 active mini dp adapters to dvi and your dv port..passive adepters generally dont work with eyefinity

Can someone recommend a Mini dp to dvi active adapter - I most likely will be going with the twin frozr 7950 as it is the only 79XX series under 10.5 and that is what I need for my case with out breaking out the dremel.


edit: I will also probably want to avoid using the hdmi port as to avoid scalling issues - should I use mini dp to dvi passive (can't I use a passive as I will already have 1 active dongle) or can I do hdmi to dvi cheaper? any recommendation on brands?

Cheaper the better but stuff that works is more important
