NVidia Surround Help!

Recommended Posts

I am having an interesting problem with NVidia surround. I have just acquired 3 monitors, 2 at 1200x1600 and the other at 2560x1600, I am wanting to set them up in a surround configuration of 4960x1600 but I am running into a slight problem. When I enable surround, all of the monitors go into either landscape or portrait when I need the outsides to be in portrait and the middle to be in landscape.

 

I am running a GTX690 with 344.11 drivers.

Uhm I always though you need to have 3 monitors that are identical or at least support same resolution at same refresh rate for surround to work. Except 2d surround but then why even bother with surround just place and flip them as you want in windows resolution setting and extend desktop ...

 

And the 3 monitors become 1 so they can't be individually set horizontal and vertical they are all either horizontal or vertical

 

Or am I musunderstanding something

I've been stretching P3D over all three for the time being, I've seen it done but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. From my understanding surround cares about the resolution and not the position of the monitors.

Tom, last I heard, for 2D Surround to work all three monitors must have the same native resolution.

Also it must be an all portrait or all landscape setup.

You cannot mix portrait with landscape.

 

If you want to mix portrait and landscape you will have to go to an ATI Radeon card.
