i contacted my friend again, and looks like he mistaken one of the HDMI ports to be a DP, so there's in total 3x DP and 1x HDMI ports on the next-gen upcoming reference card. i can't say which company, but it's from the one that's more likely to release their next-gen cards sooner if u know what i mean.this sux...
i went looking for a 1440p Korean monitor at the local computer shops when i was in Seoul, S. Korea a few months ago and couldn't find one... they had 4k/uhd, but were expensive
there could still be a DP-to-HDMI adapter bundled with reference card... but mainly i am pissed that my cheap Korean 1440p monitor won't work.also i think i found some support for my friend's claim..."In December 2010, Intel, AMD, and several computer and display manufacturers announced they would stop supporting DVI-I, VGA and LVDS-technologies from 2013/2015, and instead speed up adoption of DisplayPort and HDMI."Source:...
this is no joke... the next-gen graphics cards (and i'm talking the cards on roadmap beyond Titan X. Titan X was just released, the ones DP only are next-gen) have only four standard DP ports (not mini-DP). i think the reason they do four DP ports is because 5K monitors need two 1.2 DP input ports in order to run, so four DP ports are needed for dual-monitor configuration as the bare minimum. and the rest of the space taking up the back of the card needs to be ventilation...
i know nobody internally at AMD has seen a R9 395X2 card yet. no prototypes were even created so far, and release date for a single dual-GPU card in 300 series isn't until at least Q4 2015 or next fiscal year. also if anyone was wondering, the next reference cards in that series will not have any other ports besides DP. http://www.overclock.net/t/1549399/new-upcoming-video-cards-will-only-have-dp-ports
i have sources from various places who've seen the next-gen cards and are trusted friends. if you want other ports we should let the OEM vendors know we want at least a DVI port (for our Korean 1440p monitors) before they fab the next batch of cards.
FYI: the new Nvidia and AMD 300 series cards will not support DVI only Qnix/Xstar monitors... http://www.overclock.net/t/1549399/new-upcoming-video-cards-will-only-have-dp-ports/0_100
DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI is being phased out! the new AMD/NVIDIA video cards coming out only feature just 3 or 4 DisplayPort ports in their reference designs. that's not to say that 3rd party vendors will make their own cards with DVI/HDMI ports, though that's an unlikely occurrence. so if you're in the market for buying a new PC monitor i'd make sure it has a DP port. for example, many of those cheap Korean 2560x1440 monitors off eBay only support DL-DVI. and simple passive...
i also wanna know
