Default Re: nvidia staff PLEASE definitively answer triple head/dual card questions

Hi!

In your case, i would recommend defining three separate screens
and then apply Xinerama. This will create a desktop spanning
all three displays and provide correct Xinerama information to the
clients.

However, in earlier times, this solution had a notible performance
issue, i.e. when dragging a window from the first display to
the second one - twinview has been much faster. The situation
got much better with the 9xxx series driver: there is still a small
performance difference between twinview and xinerama with a
multiscreen setup, but it should now be ok for most users :-)

Please find attached a number of sample multihead configuration files.
The configuration you might be interressted in is
xorg.conf-4800x1200_triplehead-3x1-xinerama-dualview+monoview

regards

Bernhard
