Confirmed: mismatched Eyefinity looks better for FPS - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
That is true, and Vega has 30"x3 portrait monitors. The problem, though, is that monitors of any less size are going to be annoying to use in portrait mode, because the bezels will be near the center of your vision, not in the periphery. And you kind of defeat the point of the technology since you end up with an aspect ratio that's barely wider than 16:9.

You'd also need to be using all IPS panels and maybe a mount to rotate the panels depending on the game. Would be a hassle.

If I were rich, I'd have 5 identically configured systems with differing display options: 3D, 3D x 3, 2D x 3 Landscape, 2D x 3 Portrait, and 5x1.

One thing that you could've tried with games that require the usage of the GUI is 3x portrait mode eyefinity.

At first glance, this idea seems horrible. But when we re-examine it, it's gorgeous. The rule of hor+ is that every resolution sees the same amount vertically. This also has the side effect that the vertical count of pixels determine image clarity if we don't take the panel quality into comparison.

1920 pixels tall... That's one heck of an image clarity increase. 3240x1920 would be 3x my monitors in portrait.

Here, the bezels would bother a little more, but still not too much after bezel comp.

That would be my solution for games that require GUI or games that are vert-

Well, call me crazy, but I don't want to be switching my monitors back and forth between portrait and landscape on a game-to-game basis. I'm usually on vent with my buddies and when we want to game we just call something out and go play it. Not about to say brb 10 mins while I flip these monitors and realign the bezels, all for the sake of surround. It's good technology, but not that good.

that's just me though, some people might have an easier triple monitor mount to work with.

That ain't crazy. That's how it goes with some people.

Since ATi allows profiles, I can click as ignle button and have it enable a portrait eyefinity setup. Then I just rotate my monitors to portrait and I'm set. Takes like 30 seconds. PS: My monitors have stands that support portrait.


Besides, If I ever get eyefinity, I'd be spending a majority of the time in portrait, although these are TN panels. I love this panel because although it is TN, the viewing angles are good enough for portrait eyefinity. They aren't fantastic, but good enough.
