[Don Smith] "From despair to euphoria!

I've already reported that the ATI 5770 card solved my FCPX performance problem but I may have also mentioned that the card won't drive both my 30" monitors at full res at the same time.

I was showing my supervisor the performance improvements in FCPX (running on the 30" monitor that was connected to the cards only DVI-D (dual-link) port and displaying FCPX at full res) but also talking about how I have to live with the other 30" monitor having one-half vertical res (and thus forcing one-half horizontal res and resulting in one-fourth the pixels on screen) and that I couldn't see more than one Finder window at a time. Like 1988!

He went to his office and pulled out a Mini-Display Port to Dual Link DVI converter! New in the box! I was skeptical though but I hooked it up and.. it works! Now I'm working on two 30" monitors both running at full res on a single ATI Radeon HD 5770 card. Many thanks to T and everyone for the he"

Great thread, thanks for posting
