3 monitors 1 tv from 1 7970

Hello all just a quick question here. I know a 7970 is capable of running 3 monitors in eyefinity on its own. Does it have the connections available to connect a large HDTV also? I plan to wallmount this above my desk and monitors.

Regards, Kieran

  1. Including Displayport connections, the 7970s can use up to six displays natively. Three can be used with only HDMI/DVI-D (sometimes four, but most cards can only use three) and the other three can use Displayport.

    So, you should be able to use up to three HDMI/DVI-D displays and one or more other displays using Displayport slots. You can use active DisplayPort/MiniDisplayPort to HDMI or DVI-D adapters for the DisplayPort slots.
  2. As far as I am aware, only 2 of your connections can come from HDMI/DVI ... the other two must be displayport.

    For example:

    DVI -> Monitor
    HDMI -> TV
    Mini-Displayport _> Active Adapter -> Monitor
    Mini-Displayport _> Active Adapter -> Monitor

    Or remove one/both of those adapters if your monitor(s) support(s) displayport.
  3. You're right... My bad, it's usually two HDMI/DVI-D slots that can be used with some cards being able to use three and the rest must use VGA and/or DisplayPort. I wasn't thinking strait :(
