Using Six Monitors With AMD's Open-Source Linux Driver
Phoronix: Using Six Monitors With AMD's Open-Source Linux Driver
Linux graphics drivers have come a long way in recent years for both the open and closed-source solutions from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel. In this Sunday article, a Phoronix reader has shared his experiences in going from failing to setup two monitors under Linux just a few years ago with NVIDIA to now successfully driving six monitors on a single system using the AMD Linux driver...
This is not really that new...
I am running three monitor setup with my Sapphire HD6850 for quite some time. 3 Samsung 20" SyncMaster 204B/BM moniotrs, with each 1600x1200 = 4800x1200
Two monitors are on DVI port and third is conneted through active Displayport to DVI interface.
It works very well on open source radeon driver.
For my next setup I plan to use FPGA to drive multiple LCD panels from Displayport directly.
