There is a way if you set up hydrovision(I think that is the name of it). You can download it from amd.
At first it annoyed me because I was used to always maximizing, but after a bit I got used to just having a program open where it is and just leaving it. With so much screen to work with I found it wasn't a problem.
Ok, I Haven't Posted in A While.. .So Here's a my reply to the last 20 pages.
Screen Tearing / Display Port:
Eyefinity / Display Port Adapters:
You can connect any combination of TWO: ie DVI/DVI VGA/VGA, HDMI/HDMI DVI/VGA, DVI/HDMI, VGA/HDMI etc.
The 3rd Screen onwards will always require a ACTIVE DisplayPORT Screen or a ACTIVE Display PORT adapter to a Screen,
Screen Tearing in Eyefinity is a Result of Difference in the VPU Display Timings and the DisplayPORT Display Timings.
Every VPU on Every GPU has only 2 Display Clocks available to share between it's HDMI, DVI or VGA Ports.
DisplayPORT Does NOT use the VPU Timing Clock, DisplayPORT sends it's own frame timings through the DisplayPORT PacketStream.
When You Create an Eyefinity Array, Your Setting all 3 Displays as ONE SINGLE MAPPED ARRAY, This Single Array is being driven by 2 VPU Timing Clocks, and Display Port Clocks, And since they Are not Exactly the Same specification, there are differences in the timings, this is what causes the tearing.
In the Control Panel, You can Choose a "Primary Display" for your Eyefinity Setup.
Choosing a DVI/VGA/HDMI Screen will give the VPU Timing Priority (Making the Display Port Screen Tear)
Choosing a DisplayPORT Screen will give the DisplayPORT PacketStream Priority (making the DVI/VGA/HDMI Screen Tear).
The ONLY Way to remove the Eyefinity Tearing is to use ALL DisplayPORT Screens/Adapters, Which requires a Card with 3+ DisplayPORTS or a DisplayPORT2.0 MST HUB.
I've Since Created AMD CCC Profiles, for Gaming and Desktop Use, When In Desktop I Switch Back to 3 Screens Extended mode, this removes desktop tearing, and tearing in videos, As every screen has it's own desktop and it's own Display ID and Timing, instead of them all being mapped as a Single Display.
When I play games, I Use Eyefinity 3 Screen Profile.
Even with The Specific Drivers AMD Put out to Resolve "Desktop Tearing in Mixed Connection Eyefinity Modes" I still had tearing in Games.
CCC Profiles: Takes a Few minutes to setup, but is well worth the time.
(in Office so I can post exact procedure/images)
Single Screen Desktop Profile:
Boot the system and set it to have a Single Desktop (Center screen usually).
In CCC Save the Profile under Presets, name it Single Center Screen or something
2 Screens Extended Left
Enable the Left Screen,
Set it to extend desktop to this screen,
set center screen as the main,
Arrange in CCC so that Desktop / Taskbar is on Center screen, and extends to the Left.
save as 2 Screens Extended Left.
2 Screens Extended Right
Disable Left Screen,
Enable Right Screen,
Set to Extend Desktop to it,
Set Center screen as Main.
Arrange in CCC so that Desktop / Taskbar is on Center screen, and extends to the Right.
Save as 2 screens extended Right
3 Screens Extended
Re-Enable the Left Screen,
Set to Extend Desktop to it,
Set center screen as Main,
Arrange Screens in CCC so that Desktop / Taskbar is on the Center screen, and Desktop extends to both to the Left and the Right.
Save as 3 Screen Extended Mode
3 Screens Eyefinity.
Goto the Eyefinity Section
Run the Eyefinity Wizard, Arrange your displays, Run the Bezel Compensation, etc.
Once your Finished,
Goto your Desktop, right click and choose Screen Resolution,
Take note of what the Bezel Correct Resolution is (for me its 6048x1080). write it down or save on notepad.
using the Slider Move the Resolution down to the Actual Display Resolution before Bezel Correction (ie 5760x180)
(this removes the hassle of windows putting icons behind the bezels, etc while your on the desktop)
Go Back to CCC and Profiles Section
Save as 3 Screens Eyefinity.
Now When you Run Games in Eyefinity,
you can choose between Your Bezel Corrected Resolution and the non bezel corrected resolution.
You can also choose lower Bezel corrected resolutions (5040x900 etc)
Switching between them is as easy as right clicking tray CCC Icon going to profiles and Choosing one, or setting HOTKEYs Edited by SkateZilla - 7/25/13 at 10:46am
I would go with amd official.
I use Apple active adapters for 120hz eyefinity.
I boosted the usb port with extra powers and they work just fine with that.
However before I boosted the usb it was a mess.
