    RX Vega series and Eyefinity

    What misinformation??? I don't understand the hostility, my experience with AMD cards is much different than JackOne's, I may have simply had more cards to play with than he did. :confused: One of the few lists of cards that support 5 or more monitors in Eyefinity is here -...

    RX Vega series and Eyefinity

    Thanks, but, no. My experience is much different from yours. Most prior AMD versions from 5000 series and up could do 4 (low end cards), 5 (xx50 series cards), 6 (many xx50 series and almost all xx70 series) and almost all upper end cards after the 7990 series cards doing 5 monitors in Eyefinity...

    RX Vega series and Eyefinity

    Does anyone know for sure (actually tried, not speculation or "read it somewhere") how many monitors the RX Vega series supports in Eyefinity with/using a DP hub ?? I'd like to upgrade, but also want to keep my 5 monitor setup. I see that AMD says the Vega series supports 4 monitors, but that...

    MSI 7970 Lightning or 7970 BE Lightning

    I have a pair of MSI 7970 Lightnings. Is it safe to flash them with with the MSI 7970 Boost Edition Lightning bios? And is there any real benefit? (noise, temps, etc. ?) The cards already OC to the BE speeds.

    Share your AIDA 64 cache and memory benchmark here

    sI found a way to tweak the memory to run @1866 so new results - The workstation is currently being used for GIS mapping of utilities and imposing aerial photos (after removing the earth's curvature from the photos) onto the mapping. Kinda neat to be able to tell someone in the field 10...

    Share your AIDA 64 cache and memory benchmark here

    Actually it's a dual 12c/24t, so 24c/48t. Hence the high latency with the quad channel and low memory speed. The memory speed can step up to 933(DDR31866) but would require new memory as what is installed won't go that high. It does it's work as a workstation during the day, but gets to play...

    Mine for comparison. Wish this board was overclockable :(

    Unigine Heaven 4.0 Benchmark Scores

    Quick question and my apologies if it has been answered before and I missed it. I have 2x 7970 Lightnings crossfired and when I run the render test in GPU-Z the secondary card goes from 0/0 to 1070/1400 as it should, but when I run the Heaven benchmark and monitor the sensors with GPU-Z, the...

    The Truth about Ultra Durable 5 Plus Gigabyte Mother Boards

    Yes, The UltraDurable nomenclature is used for the entire "package", but it's actually more than just those 3 items that have changed - http://www.gigabyte.us/press-center/news-page.aspx?nid=1211

    IPS monitor but which IPS name to go for?

    You're right, brain fart on my end. I left off a very important part of the sentence. :o I corrected it.

    Razer Upgrades Your Stereo Headphones to 7.1 Gaming Surround Sound

    I wonder how this infringes on the software used with the Logitech G930s :confused:

    IPS monitor but which IPS name to go for?

    Not exactly;) LG stumbled along trying to make better LCD panels, until they partnered with Philips to develop IPS panels and together they co-hold many patents as "Lg.Philips Lcd Co., Ltd.". LG has since broken off the relationship (about the beginning of 2008) to mass produce IPS panels...

    Dual E5-2687W clocking with turbo modes?

    Because I work with this stuff for a living every day :cool: His A/C cooled closet will help much, but without adequate airflow, you end up with localized hotspots that over time degrade and eventually kill components. The VRMs are the weak link on the board. He said he intends to run the...

    Dual E5-2687W clocking with turbo modes?

    The CPUs are easy to cool, just watch the VRM temps. The server arm of Asus has/had during the design phase of that board, optional cooling fans for the VRMs. The 2pin plugs for the fans on that board made it into production (right next to the VRM heatsinks), but I don't know if the fans were...

    Dual E5-2687W clocking with turbo modes?

    Are these retail 2687w's or ES ? I believe 3.4ghz is max for 6-8 cores on retail and 3.2ghz for 6-8 cores on ES's. I do not know if they can be locked at any given TurboBoost multiplier, but most boards allow locking out TurboBoost, leaving you at 3.1ghz. But TurboBoost IS triggered by Power...

    MST Hub

    I did have a conversation with Bizlink early this month and they insist their MST 1.2 hub will be available in the marketplace late June, early July. But they also promised it last year, eh ;)

    MST Hub

    I'll like to go from a 3 monitor landscape setup to a 5 monitor portrait setup. Problem is I can't seem to find a supplier of a MST Hub here in the US or a Euro seller that will export a Club3D unit from the EU to the US. Anyone here have a source that I may have overlooked :confused:

    8800gts vs 2900 pro all tests made by me

    Was there a reason for not testing the ATI card at same higher CPU core speed as the Nvidia card (as shown in your first set of pics)?
