Needing a better Explanation...

Before i run around the house stealing monitors to hook up to the back of my 5850, i have a question.

Will DVI + DVI + HDMI work as an eyefinity setup? I've read that it will, and I've read that it won't. Which is right, and why?

Thanks for any help,

  1. Best answer
    It wont, the 5xxx series natively outputs as display port, so it needs a converter chip to change the signal into DVI/HDMI compatible, it only has two of these so it can only run up to two DVI/HDMI displays without an active converter on the DP to do the conversion for the third monitor for it.

  3. you need displayport for the third monitor. if you don't want to buy one, you can get an active dp->dvi adapter or a passive dp->vga adapter (for low resolutions)
  4. Awesome, thanks hunter315, that's exactly the explanation i was looking for.
