Hi there,
Just trying to put together a new system and wonder if anyone has used the newer WX9100 instead of the older W9100 with S400 successfully on WO6?

Trying to get 6 outputs if possible and this card is newer.

Thanks!

Which OS? I haven't tested the sync card properly but in Win10 you will have 6x 4k outputs. There is a bug in AMD's win7 drivers preventing more than 3x 4k DirectX9 surfaces.

Hi Miro,

Thanks for the reply. We actually jumped the gun and went ahead with 3 of these WX9100 and S400. Running Win10 and WO6 (also freshly upgraded)

Will do a battery of test over the next few weeks. Let me know if you're interested in the results.

I would be interested in the results since the WX series seems to be where AMD is headed.

In my testing with the WX9100 on Wndows 10, WO 6.1.6 will not even open with 4 4K monitors connected. 3 is okay which is the same for the WX7100 and 5100 cards. Do you know of a trick to achieve more then 3

Which version of windows 10 did you test and which AMD drivers? If hardware sync is not important then 4x 4K works fine with W5100 or better (probably works fine with W4100 too but I haven't tested that one).

 

Here is a picture from my tests running 4x 4K 60 Hz using AMD W5100 in a Win10 x64 Enterprise LTSB server.

Also make sure to run the same display mode on all displays.. Some cards seems to default to using 8-bit color depth on some ports and 10-bit color depth on others. Set all to 8-bit.

Well I am off to the shop then to retest. I am running a modified version of Win10 using NTlite to strip out all the "fun stuff".
