Multi-monitor (cloned signal!) question

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Rin Stowleigh, May 22, 2011.

  1. I have only one game I'm aware of that uses OpenGL (Brink).

    I run 2 monitors in cloned mode (for ergonomic reasons I won't go into
    here unless really necessary) from my GTX590 to two separate monitors.
    The nVidia drivers do advise that multi-GPU performance may be reduced
    if I do this, but I've found that it makes almost no difference in
    DirectX games.

    However, in OpenGL, running two monitors cuts the framerate in half.

    Questions:

    1. Is there a way to overcome this? (I'm guessing not, and that it's
    just the craptastic nature of open-source hardware acceleration).

    2. Is there a way to set up hot-key (or otherwise convenient)
    disabling of the non-gaming monitor so that I can quickly switch
    between "gaming" and "work" modes?

    Much thanks to any assistance.
