Regarding AMD W7000 and Club 3d MST Hub

This sounds interesting. It appears the MST hub works kind like a matrox cards. I couldn't find info regarding how the system sees the hub, it could be as a single display of x wide, or instead, shows you 3 or even 4 displays (as promised with this model):

Any way, the MST Hub seems like a nice alternative to the recently awful malfunctioning matrox cards.

I have 2 v7900 on a server and have not tried yet to plug 2 matrox DP edition and do a project with them, but will do and report results. I assume the frame rate will suck, as cards have only 2 gb of video ram.

first of all, i should probably start by mentioning that we dont officialy support output extenders and that from personal experience they can lead to system instability ( regardless of the software in use )

its also worth remembering that AI uses gpu acceleration, so adding more outputs without adding more gpu is likely to reduce performance.

devices like that generaly work by compressing your signal and therefore reducing your image quality. for instance the matrox units just compresses and then stretch the pixels which results in a softening of the image.

to me it would seem counter intuitive to spend the money on a media server build and then let it down by reducing the image quality on the outputs and the performance. personaly id also be sceptical that a product which costs the same as the matrox and is now listed on a few sites as discontinued would offer any benefit over the matrox units.

So i'm a tad late on following up with this.

So MST hubs to my understanding only add more physical outputs which are officially supported by the card.  Unlike a matrox or datapath which splits up a single output these hubs are all recognized unique outputs in windows(With there own resolution and frequency).  AMD has actually supported the the MST spec since the 6000 series.  Yes, more outputs strain your system but its unique in that each output is reconized by windows and supports 6/8/10/12 bit video and 1600p per monitor.

I was confused because the W7000 specifically states it supports 6 outputs via a MST hub on the website.  When i asked the question I was suspecting 6 1080p outputs would be too much strain for a w7000.  Which it kinda sounds like it does.
