AMD's DX11 Radeons Can Drive Six 30 Displays

AMD 439

J. Dzhugashvili writes "Whereas most current graphics cards can only drive a pair of displays, AMD has put some special sauce in its next-generation DirectX 11 GPUs to enable support for a whopping six monitors. There's no catch about supported resolutions, either. At an event yesterday, AMD demonstrated a single next-gen Radeon driving six 30" Dell monitors, each with a resolution of 2560x1600, hooked up via DisplayPort. Total resolution: 7680x3200 (or 24.6 megapixels). AMD's drivers present this setup as a single monitor to Windows, so in theory, games don't need to be updated to support it. AMD showed off Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, World of Warcraft, and DiRT 2 running at playable frame rates on the six displays."

Correct, and traders will hate this. We tried the Matrox TripleHead2Go [matrox.com] a couple of years ago and it stretched the screen across...wait for it...THREE monitors. I never heard so much bitching about how hitting the maximize button made an app take up all three screens. Fortunately Matrox had anticipated this and provided a setting in the drivers to provide the desired functionality. I hope AMD is as insightful.

Wrong direction. You need NINE displays.

Actually, seriously, it seems like it would be more useful to have a standard 30" display centered in your FOV, and a projected 90" display surrounding it at lower resolution. You still get the peripheral cues, but you're not wasting resolution (and expense) on parts of the display where you can't perceive it. The math and logic is fairly simple, but I've never heard of a card that supports it. (There were some esoteric simulators many years ago that did this, but it never caught on in the wider market.)

The EU standard for 3-phase end-user lines is 415 V if you measure the voltage from one live conductor to another. If you measure from one live conductor to ground, it's 235 V. So you're both correct.

Re:How many slots does the card take up? (4, Informative)

maino82 (851720) | about 5 years ago | (#29382633)

3-phase 220V (or 240V, depending on if you're looking at the nameplate on the equipment or the voltage coming out of the plug) is not-so-commonly used in the US on commercial buildings in residential neighborhoods that are served by 240V transformers where the utility company is too lazy to upgrade their equipment and give you a proper voltage for a commercial building. It's called a high leg delta system where you have a neutral coming off of the mid-point of one of the transformer windings. This creates 120V for 2 of the phases to neutral, 208V for the third phase to neutral (this is the "high leg" part), 240V single phase when you connect line to line and 240V three phase when you connect line to line to line.

30" monitor = 2560x1600 resolution in this story. Any smaller monitor, and most larger ones, will only go to 1920x1200 or 1920x1080.

IBM had 3840x2400 monitors, but I haven't seen much about them lately. ISTR that they required multiple specialized video cards to drive a single display. I think AMD was trying to make the point that, should displays with resolution this high become widely available, they'll have no trouble driving them.

MojoKid (1002251) | about 5 years ago | (#29382097)

Eyefinity is enabled through a combination of hardware and software being developed by AMD. On the hardware front, AMD's upcoming Radeons will sport between 3 and 6 display outputs of various types, DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, etc. And those outputs will be managed by software currently dubbed SLS, or Single Large Surface. Using the SLS tool, users are able to configure a group of monitors to work with Eyefinity and essentially act as a single, large display.

clone53421 (1310749) | about 5 years ago | (#29382311)

The significant difference between the Radeon multi-mon setup and what that guy did is that the Radeon presents all the displays as a single display to Windows. You don't have to arrange the monitor icons in the Settings tab of the Display Properties, they all show up as one big monitor. This can be significant sometimes. For instance, on a dual-monitor setup I've seen video players act strangely when split down the middle (the video only played on the left display until the window was moved so the entire video was on the right monitor, and then it appeared).

I'd be happy if they could produce a GPU + drive that would adequately drive ONE display on Linux. And another thought: Multiple displays with DX11? so what? Windows as available to the general public is as quintissentially single-user as it gets, both due to technological limitations and the oh-so-very-important license restrictions. What on earth would six simultaneous displays on Windows be useful for in the real world? Contrast that with Linux, which is multi-user by design and isn't limited by license restrictions. A multi-headed setup running Linux that supported accelerated graphics on all displays would be awesome, particularly in budget restrained environments such as libraries or elementary school computer labs. Heck, even university computer labs. Seems to me they are barking up the wrong tree.

Was Anti Aliasing and V-sync off? (2, Insightful)

It sounds impressive but it also sounds like a stunt more than reality.

Not to sound overkill but.. (0)

Jesus, what kind of processing power does this GPU have?

A "single" card running a game at that resolution with a good framerate 25 - 30 / 60? Now i didn't notice any information on the texture and other post processing settings that each game engine supports. If it can play Crysis on half that resolution on Very High i'd sell my soul for one of those GPU's.

Linux? (-1, Redundant)

I assume, since we're talking about DirectX11 stuff, that there will be no Linux support until, say, 2014 when DX11 will be declared obsolete, right?

The only interesting thing of DX11 is DirectCompute, aka OpenCL, so it already is obsolete.

ATI's reply (5, Funny)

nVidia: Our new DirectX 11 GPUs are able to support six monitors simultaneously.
ATI: Well, the Jerk Store called, and they're running out of you.

Oups, should have been AMD instead of nVidia.

Where was Crysis (1, Interesting)

This is cool and all but why would you show off something like this and not be running Crysis, its still the best looking game to date.

Why have LCD resolutions stalled out? (3, Interesting)

I want my 4000x2400 21" display. I want to be able to have tiny letters in high quality anti-aliased fonts and have it look really good. Why hasn't it happened?

Yeah? (0)

I (unlinke most slashtards) can drive a larger number of women on an average weekend. Color me unimpressed.

What about power? (2, Funny)

Does this thing come with its own small nuclear power plant and liquid nitrogen cooling system?
