Eyefinity Mini-DP/DP Question

November 17, 2012 11:34:11 PM

I currently have a Radeon HD 5850 with 2 DVI outputs, 1 HDMI, and 1 full size DP.

I purchased an active DP to DVI adapter to set up my 3 monitor Eyefinity group. It is not one of the adapters that is powered by USB.

I'm looking at upgrading to a 7950. It has 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 2 Mini-DP ports.

I am going to assume (I know I shouldn't) that the HDMI and DVI ports can still be used as the 2 legacy outputs, leaving the mini-DP ports for the 3rd.

My question is, can the active DP to DVI adapter be used in conjunction with a mini-DP to DP adapter for Eyefinity, or does the active adapter need to come directly from the video card?
