I was planning to test this, so would really like to read through the thread if you find it!lightbx wrote:^^^^ This is bad advice. I can't find the specific thread right now, but Joris and the Resolume devs tried it and wrote up a thorough report on it. The NVS810 throttles the GTX hard.
Crazy work around! I love it. Under the understanding that obviously it's falling into the realm of the unsupported, in your personal experience, did the NVS 810 work alright for you after everything was running through the GTX?Joris wrote:The only way we could make it work, was first disabling all the NVS ports (via Windows' own display manager > Disconnect), then the GTX would become available as a renderer, then you can launch Resolume using the GTX as renderer, then you have to re-enable all the NVS outputs.
I totally agree - this is my struggle right now. I'd take 30 outputs if I could get them. Based on your experience (again, with the understanding that it's not supported, just looking for your personal opinions here), do you think someone would be able to get 3 NVS 810s to work if they disabled all of the outputs on them first to get the GTX running, then re-enabled them all?Joris wrote:In the end, Resolume is mostly just pushing simple textured quads around, which a single powerful card is more than capable of. 10x1024x768 is a breeze for even an average card. The hard part is setting up enough outputs to push the pixels out of.
To that, the number of lanes is dependant on your moba and CPU. I made sure that on both, I have 4 PCIe lanes that will all get 8x, so none of them will have less than the others.Joris wrote:To be honest, I'm not sure about that. I'm hesitant, because aside from the setup process, you also run into limitations of the PCIe architecture when running 4 cards instead of 'just' 2. Since the third and fourth won't be on the fastest PCIe lanes, I can't say if their performance will be comparable to the second card, or if the computer will even recognize them.
Yes, we have: http://resolume.com/blog/10878/onwards- ... e-infinite. To be honest, I vaguely recall someone on Facebook saying it wasn't as simple as the amount of ports, but I'm sure the limit is in the 4-6 output ballpark.You mention somewhere else on the forums that the Club3D MST Hub can't extend the number of outputs a card is limited by, and I am guessing you've tested one?
There you go. This is what I mean with people coming in with theoretical knowledge on forums. In the end, you're the one that will travel into the unknown and tell the rest the awe inspiring tales of the beast with the 24 outputs.I made sure that on both, I have 4 PCIe lanes that will all get 8x
MST technology doesn't expand the number of outputs supported by a card, it just lets the user access them or access them in a different way.
