The 980/970gtx are out now and they have 3 dp outputs with dual dvi and HDMI 2.0. 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.

It would be great to know if Nvidia has updated surround capabilities to match AMD's?

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!

Thanks :triplewide:

Keep wondering.
NVidia never mentioned a word about that. So the chances are bout 0.5-1%

But we already talked about the 980 card on the IRC, and some people already bought cards and should be upgrading their system right now.

Maybe a different resolutions Monitor is around to try out your thesis.
I'll relay the question.

I need to upgrade my 5850 and whilst I'm leaning towards the 290 cards (familiarity, games) these new Maxwell cards are pretty compelling.

Since I started this thread so long ago I figured I would bump. I am sure someone has tried this.
