Crosshair problem in FPS games from AnandTech:

Eyefinity 6 was just not made for FPSes. The ideal setup for an FPS would actually be a 5×1 portrait mode, which is currently not supported in AMD’s drivers. AMD is well aware of the limitation and is working on enabling 5×1 at some point in the future.

    Hi all,

    I need help.

    I have the Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition 2GB GDDR5 on Win 7 32&64 bit OS.

    I COULD NOT set up the 4×1 or 5×1 or 6×1 Portrait Mode display configurations with this video card in Win 7 32&64 OS.

    Is it possible to set up these portrait mode display configurations?.

    If YES the please help me.

    Thank you very much.
