Hello,

I am running a single R9 290X card on an ASUS Maximus VII Hero MB.  I have twin Samsung UHD monitors (U28E590D) that say they support up to full UHD (3840x2160 @ 60Hz) on both the DP and the HDMI 2.0 port.

 

The monitor that's connected via the one DP on the R9 is of course fine at 3840x2160 @ 60Hz, but the 2nd monitor is not able to do this.  Because the R9 only has one DP, obviously I have to use the HDMI port to connect to the HDMI 2.0 port on the monitor.  However, the best 60 Hz option I'm being given in display settings is 2560x1440.  The 3840x2160 option is available, but only at 30 Hz max.

 

Is there a way to get both of these monitors on the same settings with one R9 290X card?  An adapter of some sort?
