DP++ works with passive adapters, so you can move to 5x DVI or HDMI with a $2 adapter. Or if you need 60Hz 4K you can run the DP.

DisplayPort is the best possible video interface, so having 5 of them would cover all possible video setups.

Amd needs to stop teasing cards for months before they release, it gets old and it gets there fast.

Not sure how we ever got away from prices like a GTX 590 for a MSRP of $700; those GPU's were equally as advanced for their time.

they keep raising the price and we keep buying..its our fault really tongue.gif

There are some of us who NEED Dual-Link DVI for our Korean monitors. There's no workaround for my 1440p 120Hz without the use of a DL-DVI port.

I do understand that people who get these high-end setups also run high-end monitor setups, but that's a niche market within a niche product, so it's understandable that the designers opt for the more typical port setup. I did run Eyefinity before, so I can agree with them having at least 3-miniDP for Eyefinity users.

Valid point, but there's only so many ways to get 5 displays on one video card (I assume that's what the original requirement was)

If DVI wasn't so physically huge, I'd just as soon have 5 of them instead. Maybe 3 DL-DVI on one row? That might not fit. Hmmm.

My 2cents.gif

GTX 590 was half baked and hence why didn't cost $1K USD (2x GTX 580 msrp). Also Nvidia needed to come close to the 6990s msrp (which is ~2x the msrp of 6970). 6990 was the first true dual card from Ati/Amd to actually match its crossfire equivalent. Though quad sucked tbh. GTX 690 was Nvidia's first true dual gpu card that matched its sli counter-part. Since then, these dual gpu cards have come close or matched two card setups The itx boom has benefited greatly from this.


Amd started really pushing Eyefinity w/ the 5870 2GB Eyefinity Ed. and the 6990 with displayport along with the emphasis to deliver five or six screen arrays. Well, w/ 7xxx, they failed to deliver on time the magical MST hub to fix the crappy reference layout. The 7990 was a good response but extremely late to the game. That and the cards like the Lighting, DC2T, Matrix were the last to really offer and push Eyfinity w/ the option of five or six monitors for existing and mainstream resolutions.

4k, imho, has put displayport and Eyefinity on the backseat. I blame it on the delayed Hubs and the annoying tearing/pacing issues. Also, the consoles and the push for the newest hdmi platform to conform to 4k.

There are professional grade cards that can push up to six 4k monitors at once so the idea of 5x1 and 3x2 Eyfinity is not entirely dead but we still have to get over the 4k hurdle until it becomes affordable and relevant for the average gamer.


I'm still perplexed why the industry is jumping to 4k rather then stepping into existing and cheaper (somewhat) resolutions like 2560 x 1600/1440.
