We have a display wall of 6 55" LG 55LM9600 1080p displays in a 2 columns by 3 rows configuration and are currently driving it with 3x NVidia GTX-580 graphics cards.
I am considering buying an ATI Eyefinity 6 card (7870? What is the latest? Best?) to drive all 6 displays, but the documentation here:
does not seem to indicate support for 2 colums x 3 rows (3840x3240), but does show 2 rows x 3 columns (5760x2160).
Hardware: SuperMicro X9DRi-LN4F+ MB, 384GB DDR3 RAM, 256 GB SSD (OS), 5x 3TB SATA in RAID-5 /data0, 3x NVidia GTX-580 (swap for 1 ATI 7870 Eyefinity 6??), 6x LG 55LM9600 3D
SW: CentOS 5.8 (RedHat derivative), OpenGL & GLUT
Will this work? 2 cols x 3 rows? Hardware accelerated?
Does the ATI card support bezel clipping/removal under Linux?
What are the ATI tools like under Linux?
Will the 2 cols x 3 rows work as a seamless hardware-accelerated X/OpenGL display (single OpenGL context)?
How buggy are the drivers?
How do I get rid of the annoying Gnome window management that defeats glutFullscreen() (and fullscreen in general)? Ie, I want to have a borderless fullscreen window with no window manager decoration and be able to paint ALL of the pixels.
