Can you run a triple screen setup with monitors that have different resolutions?

So I have a one 27 inch, 1440p, 144hz main monitor, and two 24 inch, 1080p, 75hz side monitors (I have a RTX 3070). Im wondering if I can play Assetto Corsa on a triple screen setup with the monitors that I have. Im aware that Nvidia Surround only lets you set up screens with identical sizes, resolutions and refresh rates. Ideally I would like to run all the monitors at their native resolution and at their max refresh rate. Is there a way I can do that?

Won't work. On AMD you can create a "super resolution" and it adds blackbars to the bigger screen so you have 1 nice picture (like 5760x1080) on all screens, but it won't work with the HZ, you can run 75hz i think but not 144hz & 75hz in 1 resolution since the other monitors can't do 144hz.
 
I think you might be able to set all three monitors to 1080p resolution at 75Hz.

The 27" monitor will be blurry unless you can get it to run some sort of letterbox mode with no upscaling.

You may well run into image alignment issues between the centre 27" and the side 24" screens.

You can't mix the frequency coming out of the GPU. It will default to the lower one I think.

I had a similar issue running my old monitor at 60 Hz and my new one at 240Hz. I ended up running the 60Hz monitor out of my integrated GPU and my 240Hz monitor out of my main GPU. i only use the 2nd monitor for desktop apps, not for gaming.
 
perfectly doable in AMD, all different story with Nvidia.

(just to give you an idea, for years I played with a 27" in the middle and two old 4:3 1366*768 on the sides and it always worked flawlessly. The setup is also pretty straightforward.
AMD Eyefinity is huge on that regard.

I mean, look at that!

go into your nvidia settings and setup your surround for multiple monitors.. and then set that resolution in game single screen full screen. and works for amd eyefinity.. and the nvidia counterpart

Nvidia can't. AMD can.

Running 1440x1080, 1920x1080, 1440x1080 setup myself. 1440x1080 are custom resolutions, originally they're 20inch monitors with 1600x1200.

Is it ideal? No, does it work? Yes.
 
I've got triples on my work desk and two are 1080P and one is 1440P --all fine across multiple generations of NVidia cards. Even split with two on DP and one on HDMI. All works fine.

How about combining a 34" 144 hz (3.440 × 1.440) with two 32" 165hz (2560 x 1440) - will it work and will it be worth it vs three 32" monitors?

Question is: Can you run these in triples mode in simracing games and could you still use freesync/gsync compatible across all of them?

An RTX 3080 should have no problems.
I didn't mean the performance. I meant the pure possibility of running different resolutions in triple screen mode.
And then with different Hz or/and also with freesync/gsync/gsync compatible.

You barely find someone trying that...
 
Nvidia can't. AMD can.

Mind sharing, in detail preferably, how you accomplished this?. Have been away for SIM racing (raging?) for a while and am now back to trying to get 27+34+27 (1920+2560+1920x1080) working on a 5700XT.

Why can't it just be as easy as the setup in pCars2.
