iRacing Triple Screen Setup Options

To enable the triple screen setup in iRacing to make the following changes.

  1. Change resolution to the one that matches your new screen setting in the case of triple 1080p select 5760 x 1080
  2. Change the number of screens to 3
  3. I use Multi-Projection as it seems to work better than not enabling it
  4. SMP I have heard increases frame rate but I only run a 980GTX and its not a feature of the 9 series cards
  5. To get the right FOV to fill out the monitor settings on the right-hand side
  6. You will need to click done once finished and quit out of iRacing and reload
  7. Sit back and enjoy the thrill of triple screen racing

  1. Did you run iracing graphic config before going back into iracing????????

    • Hi,

      I didn’t run the iRacing graphic config again. I normally only run the config if I’m running into graphic slow down issues.

  2. Hi, thanks for the tutorial. I really appreciate it! Quick question, with these settings: When I alt-tab to make sure my OBS is recording, my triple screen setup goes to a single one and can’t get it back without quitting iRacing. Any ideas on how or why this is happening?

    • It happens to me as well but normally it goes into window mode and stretches across the three screens. ALT + Enter should bring it back to full screen.

      • thx, ALT + enter works, i was having the same problem 🙂
        but 1 more question, if i, for example, open youtube,and go full screen, it goes on triple screens with the 2 sidescreens black..

        is there a way to go fullscreen one 1 screen with this setup?

        i tried to change somthings so youtube goes fullscreen on 1 screen, but then Iracing doesnt go on 3 screens anymore..

  3. hey i am running 1x 2560×1440 monitor and 2x 1920×1080 monitors.. how do i go about making the system realize that my center screen is better than the other two
