That was true for the old reference Tahiti (ie 7970). 290X finally fixed this issue and you can use dvi/dvi/hdmi in Eyefinity.

Well dang i'll check into disabling hotplug detection on HDMI then. Speaking of which, Wermad do you have trouble with hotplug detection of displays while entering 3d applications/games? 13.12 WHQL allows me to used my adapted that have this disabled, i kept getting tired of displays blanking out 500 times before the game starts, and then sometimes it lost crossfire or even eyefinity temporarily?

My Lightnings have four display ports and I'm using an Accell MST hub as well. The two that connect directly to the gpu boot up first (bios splash screen only on these guys). The ones on the hub eventually kick in after a few seconds once I'm at the windows log in screen.

Games, not much, initially some of them will flash blank/black the center screen and then it kicks in quickly. But I have not had games where the screen blanks out. Once its up and running, I can tab out and in of the game with no issues (same res 6000x1920).

May I ask how does your monitor setup feel for multitasking cause I was wondering if you had any trouble looking at the most far displays on the right and the left,also judging from your pics it looks like you're still using the normal dell monitor base wouldn't it be easier to get a 5x1 vesa mount?

Overall that's one of the most kickass setups I have ever seen and I bet that gaming on these 5x1 ips displays is an unmatched experience biggrin.gif

Its mainly a gaming machine and for general use. When I'm surfing i have multiple windows up w/ different tabs. Not too challenging going back and forth. I usually have one screen w/ monitoring software so that leaves me w/ four screens to surf the web.


The U2412M come with a pivoting base. It does an ok job. A full stand definitely would help but its extremely expensive *WSGF Ultimate 5x1+1" stand. There's a used one in the market but we couldn't reach a price.With a few pieces of cardboard to prop up a few corners its doing the job pretty well.

I'm not 100% if I'll keep these so I'm disinclined to invest too much. I wouldn't mind switching to three 1600 monitors or a 4k setup. I was tempted to get 3x2 but I hate that the middle bezels get in the way in FPS.

Is it possible to run a 3 monitor set up off a single R9 290(x) with one of the MST hubs?

A bit of background:
I am, or rather was, running a 3 monitor, portrait setup from a single R9 280x. It was one of the few cards available at that time that had 4 normal Displayport connectors. The reason for wanting those same type connectors is the terrible tearing that is the trademark for AMD and portrait setups over different connection types.

Unfortunately the card died on me sometime this week. After close to 6 months of doing a great job, it is still working, kind of, but there's random crashes and blue screens whenever it does anything more than basic graphics. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Anyway. I started to look around for a replacement card, because the shop doesn't have my current card in stock anymore.
Upgrading to a R9 290x might be an option, but there are no R9 290(x) cards with 3+ Displayport connections that i know of. (anyone?)

In this forum i saw some rigs using the MST hub. Which led me to the question above.
If it is possible,then I could get a MST hub and just use the one Displayport on any R9 290x to drive my three monitors.

If anyone knows, could you let me know?

Cheers,
Djelli.

Btw: I really like some of the rigs you guys have made thumb.gif I will make a picture of my machine, and post it here when i get it working again.

"proper" 280X has a clock splitter and all 290/Xs have 3 direct clock gens, so you can use 2*DL-DVI (1 is SL on 280X) AND the HDMI for 3 screens without DP, the DP then supports up to 4K@120Hz, so you can use whatever you want really to hook the monitors up, and I believe using a combination DP monitors and DVI/HDMI doesn't induce tearing, its only when you use active converter adapters that you loose the sync.

Damn 400$ for a vesa mount without shipping :/

Ya 3x1 portrait 4K ips setup like Bashaa's would be freaking awesome and so will be a 3x1 1600p ips displays but these would be expensive not to mention more demanding tongue.gif

That sounds even better. Thanks Paul.

Your use of quotes surrounding proper seems to indicate there are some "improper" 280x cards out there? How does one tell the difference?

there were a couple that were just plain 7970 rebadges and didn't have the splitter added to them, think they were a gigabyte and sapphire, though I doubt those specific models would still be in production, cant remember what they were specifically though.
