Also with 1080 cards in SLI mode, Surround supports 3 screens max. but could connect 2 accessory displays so it wouldn't really help.drazkers wrote:One thing you can do is connect the cards with an SLI cable and then Configure Surround displays.

Yes, SLI only increases the processing power not the number of outputs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Link_InterfaceZoltan wrote:SLI disables the outputs on the second card completely as far as I know.
Yes, with 2 Datapath FX4, you could drive up to 8 screens in sync by using the DisplayPort through port and in this particular case, I would plan the screen layout in Wall Designer rather than in the advanced output.Zoltan wrote:So, the safest solution would be a Quadro card to 2x FX4-s I think.
Another option would be to switch to 2 (or more) Quadro cards with a Sync (I or II) card.
So i kinda thought the same thing but afew years ago i had a server delivered that used Nvidia surround to power 4 projectors and a monitor. It was actually critical to keep the touch designer file at 30 FPS. Without surround it dropped to 21 FPS. It was quite difficult to get working but when it did finally take it actually worked out fairly well and even fixed sync.
I then toured around europe with it for about 3 weeks until we took some flights and I used my laptop and X4(while transitioning the timecode system to resolume).
I swore up and down thats not how it works but i defiantly was proven wrong. But i had 5 outs between two 960's working with surround and the key part was the SLI cable.
EDIT: missed the accessory screen remark, shows how it works for my case but not OPS!
