Do I need a DVI to DisplayPort Adapter for EYEFINITY

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I just received 3 of my monitors but I'm yet to receive my graphics card.
I'm going to be using a Sapphire HD 7970 3GB

It has 2 DVI ports, 1 HDMI and a Standard Displayport

My question is, do I need a DVI to Displayport Adapter or can I just use the HDMI port? If so, will it just work the same as any eyefinity setup and will picture quality be compromised on any of the monitors?

NOTE: Each monitor is identical having 1 HDMI, 1 DVI-D, 1 VGA port.

I am not sure with all this. I don't remember seing someone running eyefinity with VGA

http://www.sapphiretech.com/Flex/FleX_Eng_apply.html



You will need DVI to Display port adapter..

Quote:
However, many potential users may not know some limitations in setting up Eyefinity with a standard card based on AMD technology:

  • To group three or more monitors, you must use at least one (or more) DisplayPort outputs.
  • The best quality of Eyefinity experience needs three (or more) of the same model monitors – or at least with the same display resolution
  • DisplayPort Monitors are typically very expensive in the market and so is the alternative solution – an Active DP to DVI adapter.


Do you have a Flex Series??

You can't get any dp to dvi adapter. It HAS TO BE a ACTIVE dp to dvi adapter like this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814999030 or it will not work.

Yes of course it needs to be active. If you read my post, it mentions it. wink.gif

This is for higher than 1200p such as 1440p and 1600p. biggrin.gif (Unless its for 120Hz or 3d monitors) (I use two myself because I run triple 1440p monitors)

But since you will run 3 x 1080p, a simple DP to DVI active adapter will work. Usually from 15$ to 30$thumb.gif
