You have 8 of these set up side by side? That's awesome. I'm surprised a GPU can drive that many pixels.

Definitely requires two GPUs. As far as I know, there's no single GPU out there that can handle more than four monitors, regardless of monitor resolution.


A single GPU can drive four 4K monitors at once though? Neat.

Unexpected problem with 8 monitors: you need a good window manager. I use a macOS program called optimal layout to bounce windows between monitors and quadrants of a screen.


Depends on the card. Also depends on how many frames-per-second you're going for. A 60Hz refresh rate for four monitors is definitely doable with the right card, which works great for a work/productivity setup.

If you wanted something like 120hz or 144hz with four 4k monitors, you'd probably have a harder time finding a card that can push that many pixels at that refresh rate.

And yeah getting the right window/monitor setup is a whole process. Alt+F7 (at least on Linux) works to grab/move windows that get bumped off the screen.
