I'm looking for the most efficient way to render multiple (up to 4) outputs from one PC. My options are: 1) Run multi-head, which requires native fullscreen. or 2) Create a swap chain and use multiple maximized windows for each display. First off, is native fullscreen mode still an improvement over running windows that take up the entire screen (borderless). Second, will I be able to still swap the buffers for both monitors at the same time in non-multi-head mode? I believe this is a feature independent of multi-head (a feature of swap chains in general), but it's not clear. Thanks, Chris
