Eyefinity Question Tags: Radeon Dvi D Vga Hdmi Monitors Graphics Last response: December 13, 2009 12:16 AM in Graphics & Displays Share optional22 December 12, 2009 10:05:41 PM I have a monitor without a DVI-D input (only DVI-Sub, which is VGA). I don't want to use VGA because the monitor sucks and has display issues with VGA input. If I get 2 more for Eyefinity, and I convert the DVI-D to HDMI using adapters to connect it to my monitor, will it work? Summary of connections: GPU -> miniDP to DP adapter -> active DP to DVI-D adapter -> DVI-D to HDMI adapter -> HDMI cable -> Monitor Would you expect major issues? Is there a such thing as active DVI-D to HDMI adapter and is it needed?

(It is a 5970, so it's miniDP not DP) | Report abuse paperfox Monitor Expert December 12, 2009 10:33:44 PM http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Cables/prod... This is the only active DP converter that I know of. And I have also forgotten why it had to be an active converter, could someone please explain? | Report abuse optional22 December 13, 2009 12:16:46 AM I know you have three DVI-D's using adapters. I am wondering if this current setup will work as described. And I don't think ATi gave a real explanation as to why an active adapter is needed. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Eyefinity Question> Related ressources: ForumQuestion regarding Eyefinity + monitors with different aspect ratios ForumEyefinity Mini-DP/DP Question ForumEyefinity question ForumCompatibility and Eyefinity Recommendation Question ForumAMD Eyefinity Question .
