Hello, I got the R9 280x and playing in Eyefinity.
I have a really bad tearing on 2 screens both in Windows and in games.
Got any tips? I just bought a new computer and played with Eyefinity in a couple of years ago. I was really hoping they would have fixed the tearing problems...

The Problem with tearing on dualmonitor-setups is the issue with the timing clocks on radeon cards.

You can use a Catalyst driver , which hasnt got any Idle-Clocks OR using Ati-Tray-Tools to keep your card at the max core/memory clock, not allowing to go into any idle-mode.

The advantage is, tearing is gone. The disadvantage is that your card will be running at a steady 100%-mode even when your PC is idling -> more power consumption + higher temperature.
