Can ASUS EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 be unlocked to 6970 ? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thanks for your help you guys go out of your way.

So while I do not have ACCELL active adaptors they are being sold as active. They both are the same and are made by a company called Wicked Wired they have a USB plug built into them to make them active I guess.

150

As for the monitors none of them are native display port but according to the AMD site it says as below:

You can connect up to two non-DisplayPort monitors at one time to an AMD Eyefinity
technology-enabled graphics card using non-DisplayPort connections or passive
DisplayPort dongles. To enable and drive 3 or more non-DisplayPort monitors at one
time, the additional non-DisplayPort monitors must be connected with an active
DisplayPort dongle.

As well as that I have had exactly the same setup running on a Gigabyte 6850 card and it worked like a charm, the only thing I can think is that these active adapters dont have enough voltage running through them to kick this card into responding and plugging them into the Display ports while booting shocks the card into action, this however does not explain why the card sees them when booting hot or restarting. Perhaps it is the residual current that enables the monitors.

Anyhow thanks for your help I might RMA the cables rather than the GC and see if another brand works. As I am in Australia we dont have a great selection and when I last looked I could not get ACCELL adapters and Saphire were out of stock.

The monitors are a Samsung Syncmaster 275T on DVI, A Mitsubishi Diamondview DV1155B on VGA and 2 Acer X233H with Display Port to DVI "active" adapters.

Thanks again for you time it is much appreciated.

DV1155B,    VGA > VGA -DVI-I > DVI 6950 (as in picture below, do not plug to the lower DVI port).

SSync 275T, DVI > DVI > DVI 6950 (the one in red box).
Acer X233H, DVI > DVI-DP Active Adapter > DP 6950 (any of the 4 DP).
Acer X233H, DVI > DVI-DP Active Adapter > DP 6950 (any of the 4 DP).
 
If you can't get the adapter in my previous post, refer to this list AMD Eyefinity Validated Dongles
(You only need 2 DVI-to-DP-Single-Link-Active-Adapter -1920x1200 @USD30, there's no need for Dual Link - 2560x1600 @USD100)
