Hi guys, I bought a 970m Razer Blade 14 with one HDMI 1.4 out... I just bought three 27" 1080p samsung displays and I'm tryig to figure out how to have my laptop display and have the three external ones as extended displays.

I've heard of usb to hdmi but this seems to cause lag on screen, although I have USB 3.0... Does that change anything?

I've also read hmdi can't be split into three cable because that would just cause the same image to appear on each monitor.

Please help I've no idea how to proceed. I don't NEED nvidia surround, but at leasst to have them work as extended displays.




Worse comes to worse I'll get the newer razer blade with the razer core and run the three displays from a GTX1070. But for now I want to find a solution with my current hardware because i've just invested in three monitors and they are sitting looking good but are all blank.




Guys I've looked everywhere for a solution and this forum is my last resort !!

*EDIT: Also have a 43" 4K TV that my 1.4 HDMI can only run at 30hz so I have my Gaming PC connected to that one. Seems like the razer blade is falling short. PLEASE HELP

Hi,

The USB Adapters are laggy because they are not using the GPU. the USB Monitors are a cheap way for more extended Displays but not for gaming.

If you want all your Displays connected via One HDMI Port there is only One Way to Go.

But as HDMI 1.4 only Supports 4k at 24hz your 3 FullHD Monitors will only Run on 24hz.

Poop. I'll have to sell the triple setup and get an ultra wide. First world problem at it's finest. Can the Blade even run an ultra wide :o?

Worst part is I could connect my gaming pc to the triple monitors but my laptop can't run the 4k tv at 60hz so I won't.
I feel like razer has missed a couple key details. Why no HDMI 2.0 RAZR?!




Can't help repeating one word in my head. Aorus.
