    @Bass: Read correctly as in it's too wide, or as in it's formatted wrong?  

  • My New Home Office

    @Dr Herbie:

    1. I haven't been pushing as much content out there lately (inc. forums) because I've said most of what I have to say.  I reply when I see a topic that conjures my interest and I think I can add value to the conversation.  

    Oh God, I'm starting to sound like a manager.

    2. Oh yes, plenty. I drink two gallons of tea per day, so I have to make the tea. And pee. Lots of peeing. Also sleep; the chair doesn't recline far enough to sleep in. Yeah, that's about it.

  • My New Home Office

    I just moved. All new apartment, all new office.  You guys probably haven't seen an update in a while, so here you go.

    Note I nofollowed that link so I don't look spammy. I used to be fairly well-known around here.

    i have 2 - sapphire 6950's - 2 gb each

     1 - dvi - 1 - vga - 1 - dp - 1 hdmi

    would need fianl res to be  4800 x 2560

    Didnt you need Active adapters? 100$ ea?

    do you think this thing would work?


    also - do you get windows messages that say "windows cannot determine the resolution of displayport...etc.."  Dont show this message again __

    PPS - whats the highest res you can go?

     I bought six of these at $25 each, which do up to 1920x1200.

    I have no experience in video signal splitting, multiplexing, etc. Makes sense that it could do DVI-D to two single DVIs, if your adapter has the right output signal and port, as I understand it. I've never really bothered with the dual link thing.

    No, I don't. I do have some artifacting when Aero Glass is enabled, but that seems to be at the desktop level and not the output level. That is, an artifacted window will stay artifacted as I move it around among the screens. Even to the screens that are on the onboard. So I just turned DWM off.

    My screens support up to 1920x1080, so in six-way Eyefinity mode I can get 5760x2160 or (I would expect) 11520x1080.The card's specs report support for up to 2560x1600, which is obviously per port. So I'd guess it could probably handle 7680x3200 or 15360x1600. Finding games that support it, however, is another story. I like the 1080p screens because I can watch native 2160p video, when I can find any Smiley   With the two onboards on the right, I run total 7680x2160.

  • almost - eyefinity - 4800x2560 - SOLVED!

    @jamie: Somewhere along the way, yes. The card has six mini-DP ports. From there they go into six mini-DP to big-DP adapters (included) and six big-DP to DVI adapters (not included). From there into the monitors' DVI ports. I believe it supports 2x2 and 1xN setups.

  • almost - eyefinity - 4800x2560 - SOLVED!

    Well, I think we all know I couldn't sit idly by without submitting my two cents.  I just got Eyefinity 6 set up the other day.




    Used one ATI Radeon HD 6870 Eyefinity 6 Edition for the six-way. Has six mini-DP ports, comes with mini-DP to big-DP adapters. Had to buy six big-DP to DVI adapters. The other two are on the onboard. Removed my three Radeon HD4670s. My one video card is lonely Sad

  • Why does IE9 does this?

    I've noticed this too, and to a lesser extend in IE7 and IE8.  This is the only reason I've switched to Chome. Just until they fix it.

  • Net/Flix

    They've been billing me $7.99 so far, and they will continue to bill me $7.99.  I literally could not care less.  It's 2011; who uses optical discs anymore? DVDs are SO 16 years ago.

    I've found that it works reasonably well if you sit down, but only when it has seen you stand before.

    I think the problem is it needs to see the whole skeleton before it can see the skeleton.
