GR - Youtube user, Maxishine, shows Call of Duty Black ops running on a GTX580 in massive 7680x1600 Tri SLI on 3 x 30inch LCD screens. Please watch in 1080p HD!
/jealous Though If I were dropping that kinda cash on a rig like that, I'd have it hooked up to 3 3D projectors. Nice video nonetheless.
Even on PC this game has much less than on par with current PC GFX thanks to consoles. But, if I were a dev I would be pushing the money making platforms too, so I guess I understand not wanting to put much extra effort into making it look top notch on one platform over the other.
cant watch it cos ads are in the way :\
imagine mulitplayer on that, you could practicaly see behind your head!
You don't see more than what you see on a single 22".
wrong just look at the monitors if all you saw was the same as just one 22" than it would look terribly stretched
That's absolutely fantastic!
Dunno about this. The resolution is amazing and the such wide view is very immersive. However it is easy to see this is a console game ported to PC. The textures are not very good neither the character models. The framerate looks unstable also. Is the game running at 30fps? It looked like stuttering or was it just my video?
Well, Youtube doesn't support videos higher than 30 FPS, so you wouldn't be able to tell from the video.
Black Ops is always dropping frames and stuttering..at least in the PS3 version. Not sure about the 360/PC ones. I'm hoping Treyarch can put out a fix soon for that.
360 version stutters the odd time aswell, not enough for me to mind but it's usually when you're looking at Napalm flames.
This Guy Has A Lot Of Money To Waste
You dont need 580 in tri sli to do this. A single GTX480 or 5870 (2gb version) will be enough. While 30inch monitors will cost a bunch, you could use 24inch monitors, 3 of those will actually end up costing less then a HDTV and provide superior resolution. I currently have 5870(2gig version) in CF, runs games with source engine great on 3 screens, Even a single GPU is active the rig is still pushing 60-80fps @ 5760*1080p this engine should perform about the same. Edit: Widescreen fix is out for eyefinity gonna try this soon. Will post single GPU FPS.
In the case of an Nvidia system you do need SLI because they don't have cards with three monitor connections.
Yep will you could get 460GTX in SLI that will be awesome and cost effective. Anyways an update i applied the widescreen fix. Black ops is running at 60-70fps on my setup @5760*1080p everything maxed out 2x AA. Edit: getting between 40-55fps on single GPU, i guess ATI needs to fix crossfire scaling on this game.
My 5870 can do that but I don't need that kind of setup right now. It is amazing how our tech has advanced so much over the years.
Killer setup though. those 580s have only been on the market for a couple days now and are $500 a piece. This dude must have mad cake.
I just want MW2s resolution and frame rate on PS3 and I'd be happy.
...it's a cool concept to account for peripheral view but the monitor's frames are a little too thick for greater immersion. Then again I don't know if you can get high quality lcd monitors with thinner cases anywho.
Thats what mostly puts me off from the multi-monitor setup. Its useful for multi-tasking or doing some actual work... but it seems like the borders would kill the immersion. Though from what some people have told me, you just focus on the center screen and the borders won't be noticeable.
3 monitors vs 1 hdtv is 3 eyes vs 1 eye.. peripheral vision ftw!!!
This Is how I have been playing the game too but tri gtx 480 i7 980x 24g ram FatOldMan When your gaming you really don't notice the border and its extremely useful playing multiplayer.
Still liked the fact that No one questioned why a kid is playing this game.
Who cares? What's us saying anything going to change?
