Ah, thanks. That's all I could find too. I'd been watching the price drift upwards and availability go down on the older model for a couple months now, wondering what the heck was going on. I guess the V2 was just some tidying up with no major changes to the card.
Was looking around and it looks like they did it with a few of their other cards as well, like the 7870. Maybe they're trying to make the ports more like nVidia's cards by having a full-sized DisplayPort instead of the 2 minis.
That is a possibility. I honestly don't know too many people that need dual DisplayPort, it seems to be a very specific crowd, and dual DVI seems to be more common anyway with the average house hold dual monitor set-up.
