There seems to be some confusion as to whether these cards can actually support 3 monitors simultaneously.
 
Do all models of the 710 support 3 monitors? Or are there just certain flavors that do.
 
I have gone through 3 different cards (none were EVGA GT 710's) & yet to have one support 3 monitors. I have VGA/DVI inputs on 2 Planar flat screens & I have one Viewsonic that can by either HDMI or VGA. I want to run the 2 Planar's on the VGA & DVI ports & the Viewsonic on the HDMI port AT ONCE/AT THE SAME TIME.
 
Can anyone give a definitive answer?
 
And if not, which EVGA cards support true 3 or multi-monitor support. Desperate to get this working. And very frustrated.
 
Thanks in advance for a solid answer.

All 710 GT cards with three outputs can support 3 monitors. This evga 710 gt should do the job.
 
Note: Max digital resolution for a 710 gt is 3840x2160 aka 8,294,400 pixels. Max vga resolution is 2048x1536 aka 3,145,728 pixels.
 
So if you connect one 4k screen (8,294,400 pixels) to the hdmi output on the card & one 2k screen (4,096,000 pixels) to the dvi output on the card only the dvi monitor will work as you're trying to run a monitor config that the card cannot support. Whatever monitors you connect to the hdmi & dvi outputs (the digital outputs) must stay within the 8,294,400 pixel limit. Same applies to the vga output.

Thanks for your prompt and definitive reply. I pulled the handle and ordered one. I won't be running that high a res. so I should be OK and not exceed the max. pixel count. 1 monitor with HDMI is only 720P & the others are older Planar's that max. out somewhere around 1680 x 1200.
 
Once again, much thanks!

There is a caveat with using 3 monitors at the same time with the GT 710's. Basically, the versions that have a VGA port would support 2 digital monitors (DVI or HDMI) + 1 analog monitor (VGA). Sometimes we get questions about if the card would support 3 monitors if say, they wanted to use a VGA to HDMI adapter and that type of configuration does not always work. For your configuration it doesn't sound like it would be a problem but wanted to give you a heads up in case you ever wanted to use all digital monitors.

Hi, I am also about to purchase the EVGA GT 710 for a triple monitor set-up, from the information on this thread I probably should not have any problems but just to be sure, will these 3 monitors work ok, IN EXTENDED MODE?
 
1) Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8 inch Widescreen IPS LCD Monitor (1920 x 1080) 
    Connection: HDMI (GT710) to HDMI (Screen)
 
2) Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8 inch Widescreen IPS LCD Monitor (1920 x 1080) 
    Connection: DVI (GT710) to HDMI (Screen) (via adapter cable)
 
3) Fairly Old 17" Dell Flat Panel.
    Connection: VGA (GT710) to VGA (Screen)
 
Thanks

Hi,
I have a question about audio over DVI and HDMI
 
If I connect 2 TVs to this video card (btw does it matter whether its 1gb or 2gb if I just watch movies?), one with HDMI-HDMI cable, the other with DVI-HDMI cable, will both TVs get sound?

EVGATech_AdamBsay, they wanted to use a VGA to HDMI adapter and that type of configuration does not always work.


Hey Adam, I have this exact problem. I am connecting a monitor through the VGA port, and a TV through a VGA to DVI adapter to the DVI port of a GT 710 card at work. But I can't detect, the TV and I can't make it work. I already update drivers and everything is setup properly.

Really old post, but helping someone with a similar issue.
 
He is using 
 
Samsung 24 inch, DVI-D--- VGA adapter (can be full 1080, but I even tried to turn that down)
LG 23 inch HDMI
Toshiba 42 inch (1080p) TV (long story)
 
GT710 Card.

If you are using a passive VGA to DVI adapter, that would not work. You would need an active converter that converts the digital signal to analog.

Similar to the above.  I'm adding a 2nd Apple Cinema 30" monitor (2560x1600).  This is the only card that seems to still have two DVI ports.  Will this GT710 card run BOTH monitors on my Windows system?

Re: 710 GT monitor support question 2020/01/16 11:00:15 (permalink)
Sorry to revive this old thread yet again, but I'm having an issue driving two identical HP 27" monitors at 2560 x 1440 resolution. The GT710 I have is the one with two DVI and one mHDMI output. Based on the prior comments above, my total resolution of 2x2560x1440 is within the maximum total resolution; but I'm only able to do 2560x1440 on one of the monitors, and 1920x1080 on the second one simultaneously. I am attempting to use the two DVI outputs to drive these 2 monitors. There is no 3rd monitor.

I should also add, this is running on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, and not on Windows. Any advice you can give would be helpful.

If you disconnect the monitor that runs at 2560x1440 by unplugging the display cable from the video card are you then able to set the resolution on the monitor that is running at 1080p to 2560x1440?

I did as you suggested, and the secondary monitor still won't go beyond 1920x1080. Some additional information: the DVI connector which refuses to go beyond 1920x1080 is the DVI-D. The other one, the DVI-I, can drive the higher resolution.

Both are dual link connectors, so both should be able to support 2560x1600. What happens when you move the monitor over to the DVI-I output?

I've swapped the two monitor connections with each other at the back of the card; the higher resolution has now moved to the opposite monitor. This confirms the problem is not with either the monitor or the cables.

Re: 710 GT monitor support question 2020/01/16 11:56:58 (permalink)
So plugging in the monitor that was running at 1080p into the DVI-I port allows you to run it at 2560x1440? If yes, it does sounds like the card has a problem. Have you tried to clean your video cards drivers out with ddu, and then reinstall the video card drivers clean to see if that would resolve your issue?

Not sure how to do a clean install of the drivers on ubuntu, but you should definitely try to do that if you know how to do it on ubuntu.

Another thing you could try would be to install windows to see if you can replicate the issue in windows.

If I go back to the generic open source driver provided with Ubuntu (X.Org X server), it doesn't recognize the secondary monitor (the one on DVI-D) at all. I don't have a Windows installation available for this machine. I'll research removing the driver and re-installing a fresh copy. Thanks for your help.

No problem. It really does sound like a card or driver issue at this point.

I've found an acceptable workaround to this problem. Instead of driving the second monitor with the DVI-D output, I'm instead using the mHDMI output. I'm now able to drive both monitors at 2560 x 1440 resolution. The card is less than a month old. If you think I should exchange it, I'd like to know how to proceed.

Glad to hear that. Are you ever going to use the dvi-d output in the future? If yes, it would be a good idea just to rma it before your warranty runs out.
