Eyefinity adapter question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i have an HD 6950 2GB and i also have 3 1600x900 monitors one i havent put to use yet since my friend gave it to me and i was wondering about the DP to DVI adapter if it has to be an active USB powered adapter because i have heard that if the resolution is under 1080 than you dont need a powered one is that correct? and also can i use a DP to VGA adapter as well

It has to be a passive active adapter or an active adapter. A passive active adapter would be something like this http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814999030 whereas a passive passive adapter would be one of those adapters that come with say an hp laptop and are under 20$ retail.

it wil work, but for how long? sapphire ones seem to be hit or miss, i wouldnt risk going with a no name one for 1/2 the price. id also suggest getting the 1 year replacement plan, thats what i did. looking over all the reviews, seems like they died out under the year mark if they did stop working

Eyefinity only supports 2 legacy devices the combination of VGA, DVI and HDMI. If your your third monitor does not have Native DisplayPort, you will need active adapter.

You will need this MiniDP-DVI Single Link Active Adapter (1920x1200) [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B-006B-DisplayPort-Single-Link-Certified/dp/B004071ZXA"]Amazon.com: Accell B087B-006B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D Single-Link Active Adapter ATI Certified (Black): Electronics[/ame]


The one in your link above will not work.

DP-VGA has to be an active adapter then it will work. But check the output of your card DVI-I (analog digital) or DVI-d (digital only) and your monitor DVI input.
