Too many video cards?

Recommended Posts

Hello, i just found something strange in the Summary window of AIDA64 extreme edition.

It shows 4 video cards... I have just ONE video card...

Is this a bug? How can i fix it?

Thank you :)

Interesting, I have two cards, each with two DL-DVI and an HDMI, but I only see two Video Adapters listed.

Perhaps it is just newer cards that do this?

the only likely explanation i can come up with is that when run in SLI, the 460 would only mirror the contents of the adapter output on each card and only display one instance of each port.

Though i have 2 displays connected to my 275, so the appearance of 4 adapters on 600 series cards may be specific to kepler.

Have two each Radeon HD 6970's connected in CrossFireX and at the same place; Computer > Summary AIDA64 2.50.2025 beta shows four (4 ) video adapters, one 3D Accelerator, and two monitors

It is video driver dependent. Some video drivers show one logical video adapter for every available display outputs. Some other drivers show one logical video adapter per connected outputs.

That appears to be it, when I disable SLi in nVIDIA Control Panel, four adapters appear.
