Ultramon is only useful if you run a multimonitor setup.  If you do it enables all sorts of useful tricks like Taskbars per monitor, running different screensavers per monitor and so on.  The primary changes are:

  • Set screen orientation and interlaced display modes: display settings and display profiles now support changing the screen orientation, and if you’re using a TV you can set interlaced display modes via UltraMon, for example 1080i. Please note that changing the screen orientation is not supported on Windows 2000, and may not always work on Windows XP depending on the display driver used.
  • Output switching on Windows 7: if your video card supports connecting 3 monitors but only 2 can be used at a time, you can now switch between the different display configurations via UltraMon, for example 2x monitor or monitor + TV. Windows 7 is required for this to work, on previous versions of Windows you’ll need to do this via the software for the video card.
  • Support for legacy display drivers on Windows 7: if you’re using MaxiVista or a USB video card with legacy drivers on Windows 7, you can now change display settings for those monitors via UltraMon. Unlike Windows Display Properties, UltraMon lists all monitors, including those with legacy drivers.
  • There is a lot more on the release note page.

Computex 2010 – AMD Booth Tour from Ryan Shrout on Vimeo.

Nice footage from PC Perspective showing what can be achieved with infinite pocket depth, sadly, the same cannot be said for the music in the video…

Shiny, check out the video…

Given that Eyefinity gaming has had some time to mature, we wanted to kick the tires on it and see just how easy it was now days to get Eyefinity up and running with the latest games. We execute Bad Company 2, Supreme Commander 2, and Aliens vs. Predator for the first time and show you what it takes to configure the games for a 3×1 Eyefinity Landscape configuration at 5760×1200.

As the very happy owner of an HP LP3065 I too will NOT be buying any game that penalises me for have a grands worth of monitor on my desk…

Does having 4.096 million pixels give you an “unfair advantage” over the guys that have 1.92 million pixels? That is what a gamer sees playing on a 2560×1600 LCD compared to a guy on display supporting 1600×1200 resolution. Hi-Rez Studios has no issue supporting that. According to Hi-Rez Studios’ stance, the gamer with 6.912 million pixels (5760×1200 – 3×1 24″ monitors) does have an unfair advantage over the gamer with 4.096 million pixels (2560×1600) and therefore, YOU will not be allowed to properly use your Eyefinity or other multi-display configuration to play its game.

That said, H-OCPs beef is about Eyfinity, ATI’s multi-monitor support, or in this case, a games deliberate lack.  The video covers Eyefinity in action.  Shiny.

Shiny, must have one…

AMD is showing off a brand new technology today called Eyefinity (press release). AMD’s next-generation of DirectX 11 graphics cards come with support for up to to six independent displays, which allows you the ability to connect anywhere from one to six displays to just one video card. AMD says that the experience is unlike anything you have ever seen before. This is because using six 30″ LCD displays will give you an insane 7680×3200 pixel resolution for gaming! This setup is capable of 268 Megapixels!
