6x1 eyefinity - Urgent Help Needed

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

Got a problem thats giving me the sh$%s.

2 x Asus (reference) 5850's - (1xdisplayport,1xhdmi,2xDVI) per card

6 x projectors for a work immersion wall (1024x768 res each)
- 4 connected via direct DVI plugs
- 2 connected via "Active displayport to DVI adapters"

I have all six displays detected in windows 7 and in the latest CCC.

I need to have a 6x1 setup, res not important.

Can it be done? How?

Much Appreciated

You can't have the displays plugged into both cards if they are crossfired. You can only plug monitors/displays into the "master" card.

For eyefinity I think you need them all plugged into the same card, and would need a fancier video card that can accept 6 inputs.

You're going to just be stuck with extended desktop and no eyefinity with your current setup it sounds like.

Hey Crazy 9000.

basically i need a 6x1 orientation - if i can landscape /extend accross all screens so they act as one big screen this is fine.

I havent seen a way to be able to even extend the desktop so they all appear as one.

Anyone???

I'm not 100% sure, but you should be able to, as long as crossfirex isn't enabled. Just go into ccc, disable the other displays then click on the main display and click 'create group' select 6x1.

Yea, I'm pretty sure you can do really anyway you want with crossfirex I believe.6 just isn't normally done bc of the bezels on regular monitors are right in the middle of the group, obv you won't have that problem though. Surround only supports 3 displays.
