    Hello, having trouble finding an answer to my question.

    I know the GT80 supports multiple monitors but I'm not sure if it is capable of doing three monitors at 4k res.

    Before you tell me, no, I do not planning on gaming on a triple 4k setup I just want the workspace when I'm not gaming.

    Be aware the HDMI is 1.4 so while nvidia can do 4k on that there are caveats.

    You can have 4K monitors on the mini display output at 60hz, but for the HDMI 1.4 you can only do up to 4k at 30hz. You could have all three display 4k at 30hz, though that would be overkill haha.

    I'd say triple monitor at 1080p or so would be great. Sadly I don't have 3 monitors at the moment to test it. But I did test the 4K resolution support and it works.

    You can do 60hz 4k but with 4:2:0 chroma, so there always has to be some sacrifice for the bandwidth.

    I will definitely try this! Hopefully my TV can handle it, as it is the only 4K display I have heh.

    An LG 49UB8500. I also might try testing 1080 at 120hz, though I have read it is tricky. In practice, when I setup such a res and refresh, it shows with weird colors haha. I know it does support it but maybe I need to configure the res further with nvidia control panel.

    On a side note, it seems like that included 18inch IPS ran without issues at 72hz so far.

    I wonder if we will get active DP to HDMI 2.0 adaptors.
