I have a PC with 2 FirePro v4900's each running one monitor. Both monitors are 1920x1080 resolution.  When I play a game on monitor 1 and want to watch any video on the second (fullscreen or otherwise) it is very choppy and unwatchable. I was previously running one nVidia card and it did this with no problems. I thought 2 cards would run things great. My pc is as follows

Dual Xenon 6core processors (12cores)

32GB of Ram

300GBSSD primary

3TB Raid 0

7.5 score on Windows 8


What the heck is up I have reinstalled the latest drivers too.

Uhm, why would you need two V4900 to run two monitors? What is the main reason to have two V4900 boards in one system, if you are running only two monitors?

Regardless, the video should not be choppy. Please submit a support inquiry on
