Multiple Monitors

By .Martin. ·
This may sound like a stupid question, but anyway:

I am looking at building a new computer, (my old XP is dieing on the inside), but anyway, I am looking at running two monitors, both 19" 1440x900.

So looking at graphics cards, I settled on the Ati Radeon 3870X2 (made by ASUS) (http://tinyurl.com/5rdv2l), so looking as the specifications, the max DVI resolution is 2560x1600, which got me thinking, is that limitation per DVI port, or is it for the entire card?

also I was looking at crosfiring two of these cards together,and if each card had a max resolution of 2560x1600 (if they do) would crossfiring change anything (in terms of ability to connect 19" screens)

Thanks in advance,

Martin

Yes the Upper Limit is the same per Video Out Port

by OH Smeg In reply to Multiple Monitors

Both Video Out a Max Ports will have Resolution of 2560 X 1600 DPI.

As for using a Crossfire arraignment this only speeds up possible Frame Rates and has no effect on the DPI Resolution output of the Video Cards in use. Now depending on what you want to do here Crossfire would only be of any use for Graphic Intensive Applications like Games or CAD Work.

As for running Dual Monitors with a Crossfire arraignment it should have no effect on the number of Video Out you can run.

They give a Per Port Resolution as they have to describe the highest Resolution that the Video Card will support.
