I have recently bought new sapphire vapor-x r9 280x and have been trying to run it on 3 monitors. Everywhere on the internet there is written that i can do it on any port configuration i want so i did connect via DVI/DVI/HDMI, but one of the monitors(on HDMI) is still disabled and i have no idea why. Please help, i have already payed for second r9 280x for crossfire and runnig it on one monitor is an extream overkill.

You need to be useing an active displayport adapter for one of your displays.

can't you use an active adaptor to output from a displayport on the gfx card to an alternative port on the monitor?


my monitor has: VGA, DVI-D, HDMI - so in order to get eyefinity working with 2 more of these monitors could i use an active displayport adaptor from the 280x into a DVI input ?

I have the same problem, but these forums are not going to find help.

There is no solution.

AMD just lie in their advertising.

According to AMD specifications: # 5

They should be able to use 3 monitors WITHOUT using DP port.

4 Monitors using the DP port.

And 6 with a MST hub.

I've tried three different versions of drivers on my windows 8 and no way to use more than 2 monitors. As much as I ask in the forum nobody gives a solution (probably because there is not).

If you have purchased this card with the idea to use 3 or 4 monitors (like me), you've been scammed ( like me     )
