Over in OCN was posted with Surround take a look:
So saw in the Overclock.net surround forum, for those that didnt know the latest drivers unlock 4-5 monitor surround for Nvidia.

Pretty awesome IMHO I setup my monitors for 4 way surround and now I dont have to do all my hacks and programming getting movies to span all 4 screens.

I think games like Civ V, etc will work well, FPS DEF NOT... Tried Titanfall and will never get used to the aim being in the center of of the bezel. However, it was long overdue happy Nvidia did it.

This is Titanfall as an example with some movies with surround on 4 (frame rates are shot due to one titan in the system. But I got some kraber kills.
Notice how bad the crosshair is. Its not even enjoyable

Of course this gets shown the day after the video recording is done for the YouTubes. >.<

Awesome to see, though! You are right, long overdue.

Awesome news! Weird that it isn't even in the release highlights. Next thing you know, they will support mixed resolutions as well. Would like to try out 16/9 + 21/9 + 16/9.

So it's official now!
They've been teasing this functionality on their surround setup page.
Glad to see it works! Now people aren't stuck on AMD if they want portrait mode.

I am wondering if Nvidia has updated its surround capabilities to include different monitor aspect ratio and different resolutions.

For example: I have my 7950 sapphire flex in crossfire. I play eyefinity games at 5920x1440. My 3 screens are 1680x1050x2 (16x10) for the outiside screens. And my u2711 at 2560x1440 (16x9) in the middle. All are dp monitors.

I do this because for the games that do not support multi monitor I like the bigger 2560x1440 screen.

I have 2 other screens that I use in extended mode for a total of 5. I do see that Nvidia does that also. Just have not seen the mixed res and aspect part yet.

If anyone gets the new cards and tries this please reply to this thread and if you see it on the net please link it!

Anyone have links to more information on this? Do they also enable dual-span mode? What drivers is this enabled in?

I've had a chance to test it myself. Supports 5x1 @ 120hz surround configurations.

Bezel correction works fine.

Just to give anyone looking for a similar idea a step in the right direction as I don't believe I've seen any rigs running 5x1+1 on nvidia yet.

Drivers I've tried, 334.80, 337.09

Anyone know if it supports 2x1 spanning? Is this 900-series specific or will it work on 700-series too?

Slightly OT but doesn't hurt to ask, anyone know if the current Nvidia 3D Vision Surround works in portrait mode? A few years ago I knew it didn't. With the changes in Nvidia Surround I thought I'd revisit the question again.
