Ability to run 3 displayport monitors from a 4 port powered hub, 144hz monitors, in eyefinity?

Jump to solution

Currently have 3 R9-390 8gb PowerColor cards, and have said eyefinity setup with 2 display port cables, and a dual link DVI cable.

Why wont/cant windows see allow all 3 of the monitors to work over DP connections?  It see's my 3rd, but it is greyed out, and wont allow to

expand desktop to it? (only while using DP connectors) (with 2 DP, and 1 DL-DVI, its fine)

Well apparently its a bandwidth issue with the hub/monitors.  Did some searching on Club 3D site.  There is no possible way to run 3 1920x1080 DP monitors off of a single MST hub, especially @ 144hz.  So ima stick with what I gots.

Thanks for the reply's though!

Only reason I went with all DP cables/monitors, ect was because AMD touted it as the easy way to add multiple monitors.  Guess "truth in advertising" is a bit missleading....  Go figure....

This may be a bandwidth limitation of DP 1.2 MST hubs. What is the native resolution of your monitors?

1920x1080 native res.  Tried lowering the res of each monitor, and refresh rates as well, no joy.

Have you tried disabling MST/DP 1.2 through your monitor OSDs?
