Eyefinity 5770 and 3 LCD VGA MONITORS
  

I am having issues while using the Eyefinity 5770 and really hoping that someone will help me soon. I have a monitor 22" widescreen and two 17" 4:3 that I would like to connect to play NFS Shift. The first thing I do not know if they can connect monitors of various sizes and formats. On the other hand, now I see that now seem to work with the ATI shift, I am comparing the following cards and as yet I am not as I do not know what to do :
  • Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 2GB GDDR3 SDRAM 512bit.
  • Club 3D Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 SDRAM 128bit.
  • Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5 SDRAM 256bit.
I was about to opt for the 5770 since it is newer than 4850, consumes less fuel, less noise and considerably cheaper, however, I do not know if you can connect three monitors. Any opinions to help me decide? Or perhaps better another card?

I think the 5850 can handle 5770 with 6 and 3, so the Eyefinity, although the different resolutions will not know how. In terms of technical features, the card is strictly identical to the recommendations of AMD, with a GPU with 800 SP 16 ROP units and 1024MB of GDDR5. Same remark at frequencies with a GPU clocked at 850MHz and memory at 1200MHz. The cooling rates, however for a homemade solution. The main difference is to look at the display because, as its name implies, the 5770 manages the atypical EyeFinity 5 screens.

According to the specifications of the 5850 Sapphire website says: I / O Output: Dual DL-DVI-I + DP + HDMI, Triple Display Support. But according to the picture only has 2 DVI outputs how can you connect 3 monitors then? mimes what happens with 5770. However the 4850 has 4 connectors. Can someone explain me about this.?!

But I think that to use the Eyefinity (6 or 3 monitors), you need a special version of the board with six DisplayPorts. Although I do not know if there will be an accessory to it. What is true that the 4850 in crossfire not support three monitors, even with Connector.

Re: Eyefinity 5770 and 3 LCD VGA MONITORS

Let's see, all ATI 5000 series, from 5750-5970 support three screens without any thief or anything like that, that if, if you want to use three of them must have display port connector, if not, it does not.
You can use DVI + DVI + Display Port
or
dvi + hdmi + display port
To connect six monitors need a special version of the card :


In the model of 6 connectors are all mini display port. I hope I have clarified.

Re: Eyefinity 5770 and 3 LCD VGA MONITORS

If the Radeon HD 5850 and 5870 do provide four outputs, only two of the three HDMI and DVI outputs are used simultaneously. The third screen is necessarily connected to the output DisplayPort, which have little screens. While HDMI and DVI output the same type of signal, the DisplayPort lot about him other high definition signal, a simple passive adapter like the ones used to go from HDMI to DVI no longer enough.

I have a 21 "4:3 pan and two 17". I do not know how to manage the card three monitors, but can not imagine that support different resolutions, I do not know ... maybe there is a problem you can view the game.
