    Anyone use Eyefinity with Vega?
    I'm having no luck getting it to work.
    I'm getting no signal out of the HDMI port on the card.
    Do these require 3 active adapters?

    How did you hook up the set of monitors ? You can only have 2 hooked up on HDMI at one time, third monitor has to been hooked up trough DP.

    When I was doing Eyefinity with 3 HDMI monitors, I used 2 active DP to HDMI adapters.

    I know what you are saying and that is at least my experience as well. (Even posted this somewhere else in an actual AMD subforum and got called out as a troll, just amazing.)

    I have 2 active adapters coming from 2 of the display ports on the card. So it's DP to Dvi adapters.
    Then one HDMI for the 3rd monitor.
    I'm getting a flashing signal only from the HDMI port.
    The 2 hooked up via adapters are working fine.

    Make sure the framerates are all set to the same setting. Often the DP's will have, say, 60, and the HDMI wil have 59.97. The flashing is probably do to a marginal working signal setup. Also check the display settings to see if they match the other two.

    Thanks for the tip.
    Checked it and it was on 59.97
    I changed it to match the other two at 60, but it's the same.
    I hate to think my hdmi port was dead.

    Very impressive numbers for the Vega 56! Even though i wanted a 1070 or used 1080 i still went ahead and ordered a Vega 56 for a great price and it's in stock.

    I am very displeased with my RX 480 currently, PUBG dropped below 40fps at the lowest settings at 2560x1080 and had to lower the resolution scale to get above 50fps.
    Vega 56 seems to have no issues with this game as far as i've seen, even higher frames then the 1070 wich is amazing cause the game favored NVIDIA.

    Same goes for other games that favor NVIDIA, this made me change my mind and get a Vega 56.
    If the aftermarket versions release within 14 days i can still swap it, after that i'll just keep the reference version or get a aftermarket cooler later down the road.

    One more thing, i heard you could get better performance by flashing it with a Vega 64 bios, how safe is it?
    Any reports of damaging the card or even killing it?

    Just ordered it, was a difficult choice though lol. Could of had a Strix 1070 tonight, but the Vega 56 is just a better choice. Now i can keep using freesync and much better performance. :D
    I do have a 4K HDR TV, but i need a new cable, cause the screen flickers at 10bit and HDR enabled.

    So anyone with Vega56 or 64 using RS3 wddm2.3 drivers and also see these so called boosts?

    Guess AMD driver just wasn't made properly @ wddm2.2 or because 2.2 didnt have proper multi threaded code, like 2.3 does..

    Yep, strange thing is. 3 of the cables I get nothing at all. 1 cable I get flashing and that's it.
    Any other ideas? I'm stumped at this point.
