Ok so i have 3 samsung s24b300h monitors. And two sapphire 7970 6gb ghz edition vapor-x gfx cards.

they do not have dvi input, only hdmi

No problem, right?

I purchased a mini display port adapter off ebay, a cheap one.

No luck. (I'm guessing a passive adapter)

So then I buy this:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271198947952?ssPageName=STRK...

two of them to be precise. (TLDR it says it works with eyefinity, and amd graphics cards, and hd)

However, After receiving (one, sigh) of them today I found that when I used this adapter between the hdmi and mini dp input on my graphics card, There was a drop in resolution from 1920x1080p to 1920x420 when I set up eyefinity.

I tried using just ONE monitor with this adapter and found that it still lowered my resolution to that pixelated mess.

So, before I rip my hair out, which adapter do i need. According to the amd website the only compatible mini dp to hdmi active adapter is this:

Adapts: Mini DisplayPort™ To: HDMI (Active Adapter)
Manufacturer Part Number Firmware Max. Resolution Purchase
Bizlink KS30047 0x08 4096x2160

However, I can find no link to buy this item online whatsoever.


MASSIVE TLDR:

CAN I RUN MINIDISPLAYPORT TO DVI...AND THEN USE DVI TO HDMI? WILL THIS SLOW PERFORMANCE ETC?

can i risk buying ANOTHER active mini dp to hdmi not listed on their website, and expect it to work?




Don't...
