Time to put my money where my mouth is and show you folks what I do with The Dragonborn.  Evil

A simple SkyrimPorn album (SFW)

I push Skyrim to my LG 29" Ultrawide monitor (2560x1080) via the DisplayPort output on my Krypton.

Frame rates in outdoor areas are typically between 25-40FPS depending on various factors like texture quality, amount of flora, etc.  40-60FPS in most indoor areas except some of those from mods.

On the Krypton's native 1920x1080 display, frame rates have a good 10FPS bump up.  I use Vsync, so frame rates don't go higher than 60.

If you're curious about the mods I use, you can find them here.

Very nice look from your mods. Almost makes me want to run around chasing dragons again... too bad there's a boatload of drowners, nekkers and ghouls waiting for me.

Thank you!

I created the album to post on the /r/SkyrimPorn subreddit and thought it might go well here too, letting people see what a nicely-equipped gaming laptop can do, even with a heavily-modded game.

Yeah, the Behemoth could probably handle it, but I'm not sure if the SLI will translate over the DisplayPort connection or if it would just use a single card over that output.  Someone with more expertise on SLI and DisplayPort would need to answer.

As for how I like it, I wrote a review on NewEgg after owning it for a month which is still accurate.  The caveats I note are still present, although they occur with a bit less frequency, and I still don't know if that's just a problem with outputting it from a laptop or the monitor itself.  My previous monitor didn't have DisplayPort, so I couldn't compare.

Sounds like the Behemoth should be well able to handle pumping pixels to the 34" UWD then.  Skyrim supports SLI as well, so you should be good, oldlady.  Evil
