1070 with multiple HDMI ports?

Hallowenman
 Share

I have a GTX 970 with a single HDMI output which I am using as my monitor doesn't have any Display Ports. Tomorrow is the expected delivery date for my Oculus Rift, which will need its own HDMI port. None of my friends have VR, so I have no clue how the Oculus works when its plugged in, like if I can see the desktop and apps and programs that are running or not. I can obviously plug my monitor to the Mobo HDMI so I can use that as well as the Rift. But I don't want to keep the Rift plugged in at all times as I participate in very serious competitive racing simulators and I don't want to use the Rift for that.

 

I am planning to upgrade to a GTX 1070 and was wondering if there is any 1070 with multiple HDMI outputs, as with my current setup (PC, desk & chair, room size, etc,) it is very annoying to unplug anything on the backside of the PC like HDMI etc. Thanks for all help!

I would just get whatever 1070 you prefer and grab a DP to HDMI adapter. Just make sure you get a decent one and it can handle the HDMI version you need (for example if you want to do uncompressed 4k60 you need one that supports full HDMI 2.0 and can do 4:4:4 at 4k/60, for 1440p/60 you need at least HDMI 1.4).

Having issues with a Corsair AIO? Possible fix here:

Spoiler

Are you getting weird fan behavior, speed fluctuations, and/or other issues with Link?

Are you running AIDA64, HWinfo, CAM, or HWmonitor? (ASUS suite & other monitoring software often have the same issue.)

Corsair Link has problems with some monitoring software so you may have to change some settings to get them to work smoothly.

-For AIDA64: First make sure you have the newest update installed, then, go to Preferences>Stability and make sure the "Corsair Link sensor support" box is checked and make sure the "Asetek LC sensor support" box is UNchecked.

-For HWinfo: manually disable all monitoring of the AIO sensors/components.

-For others: Disable any monitoring of Corsair AIO sensors.

That should fix the fan issue for some Corsair AIOs (H80i GT/v2, H110i GTX/H115i, H100i GTX and others made by Asetek). The problem is bad coding in Link that fights for AIO control with other programs. You can test if this worked by setting the fan speed in Link to 100%, if it doesn't fluctuate you are set and can change the curve to whatever. If that doesn't work or you're still having other issues then you probably still have a monitoring software interfering with the AIO/Link communications, find what it is and disable it.

I just googled DP to HDMI adapter, actually forgot about that option. How well do they work? Are there any notable quality issues, loss of quality or anything like that?

Asus usually has two HDMI plugs and some HDMI models do.

And Displayport to HDMI adapters work well, as long as the adapter support the resolution and frequency (Hz) of your panel/other display device.

since DP and HDMI both use digital signals exclusively there should not be a loss in quality introduced by the adapter or cable if you follow what @pyrojoe34 said and buy an adapter with the specs you need.

There will be no difference what so ever, as Display Port 1.2 is the same as HDMI 2.0. Just to put this into context Display port 1.2 outputs 4K@60hz, where HDMI 2.0 outputs 4K@60hz. So you should be fine, basically the same.

I have some problems finding technical info about adapters from local stores. I don't want to order an adapter because my Rift is most likely to arrive already tomorrow.

Should I be worried about that when my monitor is only a 1080p monitor, and only supports 60Hz?
