First thing, i posted this in the AMD GPU section because this is primarily an AMD thing. While its also about a unique monitor setup i choose it here because in the long run i will be doing GPU related tasks. Also, if we get 390x or the likes soon enough i will also potentially be using those as well.

What happens when you take a Crossover 44k 40inch 4k60hz monitor and use the PBP 4 way function, along with AMD's VSR, Crossfire, Eyefinity 2x2? INSANITY

You can probably do this on other displays with the 4 way PBP option but i've only done this with the Crossover myself. I wanted to share this with the OCN community and mainly the AMD users. This should be possible for others if they wanted but, if nothing else you get to see it in action.

Please note: The panel itself is 4k and thus is technically downsampling with VSR - however if you read and look at pictures you will see the scaling is actually not too bad.

System Specs currently:
Crossover 44k 40inch [email protected] Monitor
290x reference 4GB Quadfire with custom watercooling and EK blocks
EVGA SR2 - Dual Xeon x5650 @ 3.3 - 4.4ghz (depending on GPU OC - wattage limit)
24GB DDR3 @ 1600
PCIE 2.0 x16
Lepa G1600 PSU
2x480GB Crucial SSD's RAID 0
2x1tb WD black HDD - RAID 0

I am goign to cut n paste it here as well with my own thread on this. I will update and try to provide as much information on here in regards to both how it works and looks. Please keep in mind, i dont have a quality camera and i will be moving so it's not on the list to nab just yet. If i can though i will try to get a decent 60fps camera soon. Until then i have to rely on my less than stellar cell phone(samsung mega).

So i'd like to share this about the crossover 44k, although its potentially specific to AMD GPU's most likely. So i decided to play with the PBP 4 way option on the 44k. And so i hooked up 4 inputs, via my 290x quadfire. Thanks to AMD's VSR i was able to up the resolution per input and achieved
[email protected] 2x2 eyefinity. I can also do 3840x2160 or a wide range of resolutions if i so choose. While its super demanding on games at [email protected] the scaling is actually not to bad considering the resolution im pushing through the crossover.

Ill post some screenshots to show what i mean exactly. i can also post some pictures from my phone but its not the best for photos. Anyways enjoy.



Game screnshot tests (you can right click and open in new tab for full size.)



Cell phone pics(obviously doesnt do it justice with a cell phone but its all i got)




As far as scren synch goes, its perfectly seamless if vsynch is on. With no vsynch and high FPS there is a slight synch line variance from top half to bottom half. middle of the screen - if fps is over 60 with no vsynch that is.

I might just use this instead of my other eyefinity setup, i do loose alot of screen size from my 3x39inchseiki's but i get almost triple 4k resolution on a single [email protected] And as for gameplay it seems really good, although ill need to test it more.

p.s. i forgot to say i think this will be worth checking out in windows 10, as Win7 has crappy UI scaling in super high resolutions.
Inputs currently

OSD menu showing PBP 4way

So crossover [email protected] screenshot vs cell phone pic.

SS


Cell phone pic


Colors look different but thats my cell phone cam really. To my naked eye they are much closer in color.

I think i am going to say this is the best monitor i've owned to date. Really kicks butt now. haha, im hooked

EDIT: panel is still 4k, so i am not saying its actually displaying 6400x3600 pixels if people are going to get technical :)
UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!

Well my efforts are probably futile but im trying my best with my potato phone cam. Sorry its the best i can do for now.
Camera is [email protected] so you cant really gauge fps and all the auto crap really screws with the colors but manual settings dont work in transitions from dark scenes to light.

Metro Last Light Redux - just trying to capture detail of the dude, i show the settings @ 40secs.
Valley at Medium or high i dont recall, just was trying to show details as best it can. It has crappy textures so only so much resolution can fix, if you pay attention to the size of the ui at the corners, someone who uses valley alot will see immediately how tiny the UI is at the resolution.
Of course again sorry for the poor camera work, but i tried. At least you can see the 2x2 eyefinity works seamlessly and no bezels or lines or anything. Its as if it's one monitor. Really love this 44k now.

The beloved Crysis 3, I was having major issues with this title on 3x1 eyefinity for the longest time. I am not sure if a driver update fixed it or using 2x2 eyefinity somehow makes it better.

Crysis 3 @ Medium 6400x3600 no AA - FPS checks(40-60 using vysynch) during video on AB OSD -settings at end of video, sorry bout the loud sound i was alone at home and decided to crank it up, didnt realize it would be so loud on youtube.
Demo of Very High no AA - barely playable if at all, 25-30ish FPS as shown in video.
(video still encoding but should be done soon)

Anyone doubting Crossfire scaling should see the OSD numbers, all cards pegging out pretty much the whole time. I am extremely happy with the scaling across 4 gpu's. I am not sure whats m,aking it click well but 2x2 eyefinity is really working very well overall. Sleeping Dogs just looks amazing and Crysis 3 is really good too. This camera doesn't do it justice to say the least, i literally am in awe all over again after toying with triple4k portrait and now having almost triple 4k on one screen. Its just hard to describe with words and a shoddy camera(29fps) with youtube compression.

Maybe i can make it up with some Metro LL Redux shots, at a measly medium and high setting no SSAA - 6400x3600

I'd like to see the full resolution screenshots even if it crashes my browser.

Checking scaling here on the desktop, since its a valid question maybe this will help.

im using this image:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/64/Empire_Universe_2_world_grid.jpg

No zooming in(mouse wheel) on browser leaving it default. while i cannot take a picture of the whole image up close i took a whole desktop shot then a closer shot of beginning and ending corners.

This monitor looks so awesome.

Does it have any dead pixels?

If so... Are they noticeable?
