New AMD FirePro keeps crashing

    I have 12 Monitor setup that is run by three ATI FirePro 2460 GDDR3 512 MB cards.

    Each card has 4 ports so each runs 4 monitors. I have been using this setup or last 5 years for displaying stock charts & using other regular applications including playing YouTube & regular videos. I DO NOT play any games at all.

    I never had any problem with setup for last 5 years.

    Recently one of the cards died so I bought a new one. But new one has identical specs except it has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

    Now whenever I play YouTube videos, the new card crashes after few minutes. So 4 monitors that are connected to that video card goes blank & also keyboard & mouse freezes.

    So I have to shut down the CPU using start button & Restart it & again all 12 monitors start working.

    But then if I play YouTube videos, new card crashes after a while. Crashing time is random.

    What seems to be a problem ? Is it because new card has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3 that other two cards have & thus it is not compatible with two other cards ? All cards are identical except the new one has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    I take it your setup is not Eyefinity, and simply running 12 monitors as an extended desktop. This means each card is running independent of each other, and therefore unaffected by your memory speeds. If you are running Eyefinity, that is another matter.

    YouTube video watching by default is using GPU hardware acceleration. Have you tried turning this off in your browser to test compatability?
