e.g. Eyefinity question - [H]ard|Forum

To put emphasis on this:
This is how Eyefinity works, you get three resolutions a multiple of 800x600, 1280x1024, and maximum resolution. Lets assume you have three panels in a 3x1 setup as follows:

[ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ]

1 - 22" 1680x1050
2 - 24" 1920x1200
3 - 22" 1680x1050

Your three Eyefinity resolutions available to you will be:

2400x600, 3840x1024, 5040x1050

Notice that your maximum Eyefinity resolution is 5040x1050 which is 1680*3 x 1050, so Eyefinity will take the lowest maximum resolution from the group and use that as the limit.

However, you can still do your traditional extended desktop and have three panel support at their maximum resolution.

Edit: I have never heard of a monitor upscaling a resolution..... I don't even think its possible. Downscaling would be far simplier. All my monitors are 16:10 so downscaling the 24" to 1680*1050 so that its compatible with eyefinity shouldn't be much of an issue (at least I think, which is what I'm curious about).
