More then 4 displays on 7970?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If I order regular 7970 or black edition 7970 can I run 5 displays in eyefinity?

I know it only has 4 ports but maybe they can split?

You can by daisychaining displayport monitors or using a (currently) vaporware mdp hub.

I have only DVI on mine, maybe with DP port adapter I can daisy change?

First off, *mst hub. They have been promised since the 6k series was released iirc, which would give you 2 DVI ports off of a single displayport. From what I just read there are also still no daisy chainable monitors (someone will have to verify this).

So unless I'm mistaken (which I very well may be), no, you can't run more than 4 displays off of a 7970 unless you get the flex edition when it comes out, or the mst hubs are possibly released.

Only daisychainable monitors I know of are the ACD's
