Little known tip 8/23/2014 10:31:31 PM

Pros: A card that can run 6 monitors is awesome, if done right...

Cons: I read in a review for an older model of this same card, that greater than 3 monitors at once requires an ACTIVE adapter, and that the adapters the card comes with are PASSIVE, meaning you have to buy ACTIVE adapters. These ones (at the link) are recommended:

Decent Card for up to 3 Monitors 5/6/2014 6:34:21 AM

Pros: Looks nice
Feels nice
Good for 3 monitors or less

Cons: Unable to display more than 3 monitors.

Overall Review: As soon as I connect the unit with 4 monitors, 1 always doesn't show up. I had to return it.

Good card 5/2/2014 7:00:09 AM

Pros: This is a great card for gaming, it can play most games (my monitor's resolution ATM is 1280x1024, so I don't know how it'll fair at 1080p) from high to ultra settings. It's a very good little card, and it will surprise you. It'll games like DayZ or Chivalry (Chivalry's breaking point would be a 64 player server at custom settings which will pull you down to around 30 fps). Some games require a bit of playing around with the graphics settings to find that perfect balance of performance and quality. Newer games might require you to tone down the textures, this does not always apply but it's my go to if a game is not running well.

Cons: It gets hot. The hottest it's ever gotten is about 55C. Over the summer, I've decided to take some precautions so that it doesn't get too hot. I'll normally put my computer to sleep regularly, and I'll leave the ceiling fan on whenever I play games. This has proven to me that you can keep it cool, because after these precautions we're taken it now stays, on average, around 47C.

Overall Review: Whatever you do, don't over clock it. This is not meant for that. I tried it, with my asus bios template setting because I'm lazy, and the card got loud. Extremely loud, as in a constant buzzing noise like a bumble bee. Ever since I toned it down I haven't had a single problem again.

Unhappy with Visiontek support 3/7/2014 9:18:34 AM

Pros: When working properly, these are great cards - I have its predecessor (HD 6870) driving a 6-screen visualization wall at 5884x2216 after bezel compensation. With an IR touch bezel, folks love it.

Cons: I've received two cards in a row with problems on port 6, making them unusable in our application. All warranty requests must go directly through Visiontek, even though the card was defective on arrival. They only have refurbished cards available, as the production run has already finished for this card. The telephone support guys have been helpful, but they are not the same folks as the online support that have to issue RMA's. Two e-mails in two weeks, not a single reply. Not happy.

Overall Review: We are running monitors with DisplayPort inputs, so we haven't had to deal with the whole adapter issue. Eyefinity 6 is a great out-of-the-box solution for Windows. Two stars because it is great when it does work.

Amazing card 12/15/2013 5:31:38 PM

Pros: Very easy set up on Windows 7. I'm a noob so it was a little tricky getting the monitor set up right. Using this card to run 6 Dell UltraSharp U2312HM for work. I don't know how to do all the SLI and Crossfire business, so it was simple setting it up with the 6 mini display port outlets. If you have the money and need a 6 monitor set up, look no further.

Cons: Too pricey, but worth it.

6 Monitors online 11/7/2013 5:00:56 PM

Pros: Card works. I was concerned about the reviews and how they range, but the card works. It requires the ACTIVE Mini Display Port to DVI adapter for all 6 monitors to work. 2 are included in the box, so I had to order 4 more. You cannot use the PASSIVE Display Port to DVI which are the other 4 in box. I tried several configures but would not work, unless I used the Active HDI-D. Also one monitor didn't work using DVI connection, so my assumption is that it was an older standard and didn't understand the ACTIVE cable.

Cons: I could only get 3 monitors to work using the passive cables. Perhaps someone with more time to study configuration could get it to work and monkey around with the drivers.

Overall Review: My primary purpose of 6 monitors is for work and not gaming, so not sure what gaming performance would be like. I want one key and one mouse to rule all the monitors, so I can have different remote connections in each window

6 Displays that look great 6/19/2013 3:03:18 AM

Pros: The card works as I expected. All 6 displays were detected and working as soon as I installed the correct drivers and re-booted.

Cons: The files on the CD that came with it installed but the Catalyst Control Center Program would not run. I ended up having to get the drivers from the AMD/ATI site because the driver files on the VisionTek site were damaged.

Overall Review: Overall this card works great. I would like to have the abiity to turn on/off the eyefinity function without having to go thru as many steps as required now.
