    Triple monitor

    I want to know if with the new asus strix (GTX 1070/RX 480) can run a triple monitor set up, (gsync / freesync). I know those monitors needs DP conector, but the new strix just come with 2 Dp and 2 HDMI 2.0, just that, thx for the help

    Just got two Asus ROG Strix GTX-1080-A8G-GAMING cards, and to do Triple Monitors w/o turning SLI, (aka Activate All Monitors) they all need to be hooked up to the first card only. Otherwise you'd need to enable NVidia Surround, and probably a HB bridge (I have two ribbon SLI Cables, and running anything in 3D on Nvidia surround with monitors attached to different cards caused corruption...not so if only one card had all the monitors)

    This is relevant I guess to just the Pascal card. I would assume AMD's Eyefinity isn't as broken as NVidia's Surround after all these years.

    Thx for your answer, i got the same info from another way, you are right, 3 monitors must be conected to same card.
    Btw, i just want fresync / gsync, not 3D, and in this web: http://wccftech.com/amd-talks-freesy...1-3-hdmi-2-0a/
    says freesync will be cappable over HDMI, and not just DP. The truth its there is not any monitors yet.
    So i dont know what to do, if get a card with 3 DP or just the asus.
