Hello,

i have a few questions.

The first question is related to windows 7.

Does win7 aero snap feature work with dual-monitor or multi-monitor setup?

The second question is related to ATI Eyefinity and screen resolution.

On ATI Eyefinity review site, the demonstrator uses 4 screen setup using dell u2410 which supports up to hd resolution. But, he is using the highest resolution that the graphic card can offer which is 2560 x 1600 using ATI Eyefinity.

How would that be possible? Am i missing sth? If it is , that would be great. Please adivise me.

Thanks.

The resolution is supported to well above 2560x1600. They only support a single monitor up to 2560x1600, but a 4 monitor eyefinity setup with the U2410 would be 3840x2400 for example.

As for aero, I have no idea.

Ok. Thanks. If i understand right, the more monitors in eyefinity setup , the higher resolution will be. can you tell me how i can calculate the total resolution 3 or 4 monitors setup.

Thanks a lot.

this is very easy. take a resolution, say 2560x1600. assuming you have the monitor in its regular landscape setup the 2560 would represent the horizontal (x axis) and 1600 would be vertical (y axis) in pixels. lets say you have three of these monitors side by side, you would multiply the 2560(horizontal plane) by 3 to get 7680. the vertical # of pixels would remain the same at 1600 as you dont have any moniotrs above or below. your final resolution would be 7680x1600 with 3 side by side 2560x1600 monitors.

alternatively if you placed those same monitors on top of each other you would multiply the 1600 by 3 to get 4800. then you would have a 2560x4800 sized desktop/screen.

you can also do other crazy things like rotate the screen 90 degrees to make the 2560x1600 screen into a 1600x2560 (portrait)screen and start from there.

Thank you guys. That is awesome. I still have a question. please bear with me.
Let's say i have 3 1920*1200 monitors in landscape mode with eyefinity setup. So, it is going to have 5760*1200 resolution in this consolidated setup. But, how would that be possible if each monitor supports only 1920*1200 resolution? I guess when they mean 5760*1200 resolution, i think they are talking about total resolution in the set up. Is that correct?

Thank you.

Yes, they are referring to the total resolution.
