from what i understand, luck of the draw is slim to none. the 2b (the overclock version) production ended in feburary. the 2c production was started in march. so just assume anything from now on is 2c.

That is not only unhelpful but rude.

I know it's hard to read sarcasm sometimes, but this time I think it was pretty clear.

So I just gave in and ordered the base Catleap Q270 but of course my 6950 only has one dual-link DVI output. I have been looking for HDMI or Mini-DisplayPort to Dual-link DVI but so far have only found adapters that go to single link DVI.

Has anyone found an adapter that will work with these monitors? Thanks in advance for your help.

The best you can do is order a low-demand, low volume version and hope for the best. No garuntees.

I ordered a Catleap /w tempered glass on Mar. 12, it was sent out for shipping March 16, and it was a Catleap 2B capable of 85 hz + operation.

MyGaffer, why would you need two dual-link DVI outputs? For two Catleaps running together?

I got the same card so I am interested tho not well informed.


Also, mind me asking in this thread as well: I ordered from Green-sum and the track-trace site shows my monitor sitting at "Handed over to Air carrier INCHEON" for the past 3 days. Nothing has changed.


INCHEON is at KOREA, so reading on people getting their monitors within 3 days from shipping makes me a bit worried.

what's the story with DVI problems people are having? I've just ordered a catleap, and I just assumed it'll work with my 6990 out the box. am I mistaken?
post #2999 of 4784
Im thinking about pulling the trigger on a GTX 480@100$, I assume it will run things much better than my HD5830? Good buy? Really dont need 680's right now and 500 is to high atm,
