Can't obtain 5760x1080 on my 6950?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys my buddy and I have been trying to get my eyefinity all set up but we can't obtain a 5760x1080 resolution. The best we were able to get was 4800x1200.

I have a single 6950 sapphire videocard, the monitors are Asus VH238H which have 1920x1080p resolution. The displayport adapter I got is the accell DVI-D single link active, model B0878-005B-0725. After the whole night we came down to the conclusion that since the displayport is not the mini, which made me use the mini adaptor that came with the card could be the issue. We tried everything we can think of with drivers cleared and installed etc. The computer reads the monitors wired directly to DVI as 1920x1080.

Curious if this is a common problem? I plan on exchanging the adapter tomorrow.

I assume you've configured a display group. With the group deleted, what resolution does the system detect the monitor connected thru DP? All three are 1080P res max within the system?

Monitor through the displayport is 1600x1200 while the other screens read 1920x1080 through dvi

I am not an expert here but wouldnt the one monitor with a 1600 res prevent you from reaching 5760 in the width? 5760 is 1920x3...

What is the actual max resolution for the monitor connected thru DP? You have to have 3 monitors that can run at the same resolution for eyefinity to work seamlessly. This is when what LastPriest wrote comes into play.

I understand that but all monitors are the same, just trying to figure out why one monitor is being prevented to go to 1920x1080

adapter says it does 1080p. 1910x1200 max.

Exchanged the adapter so it is a straight mini, should fix the issue as my friend has the exact same one.
