Triple monitors setup : 2x22" for sides and 1x29" ultrawide for middle

4 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

I already have two 22 inch monitors ( 1680x1050 native ) and since a 29 inch ultrawide ( 2560x1080 native ) have an equal same height screen as the 22 i was thinking about using one 29 inch ultrawide for the middle. Resolution speaking do you think it would be possible to make them matching and have a coherent display ?

Technically it will work. You can should be able to use Nvidia Surround, or Eyefinity, but if you end up with black bars on the center screen, take a look at SoftTH. It will allow you to use the different screens without issues, and still have bezel correction, or image rescaling if the screens are different heights.

ok thanks, i'll try once i'll get the 29". The 22" are 16/10 and perfectly match the 29" ultrawide height and that's why i'd like to use the 22" on side and have a way larger width screen with the 29" ultrawide in the middle. I never saw this kind of triple setup but i feel it should look great.

 

Btw just notice softth comes in dx9 only, a dx11 is supposedly to be released but no news from them. So is softth still compatible with recent games that run more recent recent directx ?

It works fine with more recent games. There is a bit of configuration required though. 

There are some posts on reddit about iracing with SoftTH that should get you started. A search will send you down the rabbit hole.
