    AMD Radeon R9 380 - Running dual monitors via DVI-DP cables

    deanomac

      Hi all,

      I have recently installed a new graphics (AMD Radeon R9 380) to my system, and also decided to use buy an additional screen and run a dual monitor setup.

      The screens i have are Viewsonic VX2757, each have an HDMI, DP and VGA port.

      The graphics card has 1 x HDMI and 2 DVI ports.

      So to run dual screens i decided to purchase 2 x DVI-DP cables to connect the screens.

      Unfortunately, no matter what i do i can't get the graphics card to detect the screens with those cables.

      The graphics card does detect the monitor if connected via HDMI.

      I have updated all of my graphics card drivers to the latest available updates.

       

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.
