Eyefinity adapters are all active, but they can either be single or dual link if we're talking dvi. Dual link dvi adapters are also powered by a usb cable.

I understand that. I need to know if the DP port that come with Sapphire 6950 can be used for eyefinity?

To all Sapphire 6950 owner, does your graphic card come with a Mini DP port? if so is it active or passive?

Looks that's just a dp to mini dp adapter, not a dvi to dp/mini dp adapter.

I'm sorry you lost me. I need to know if the retail Sapphire 6950 come with an active DP (one shown on the link).

+ Rep if you can help me. I have to go but I'll be back in a few hours. Thanks in advance.

The old 58xx cards were regular display port but the new 69xx cards are mini display port. It looks like that adapter just changes mini display port to display port, nothing more.

it is passive mDP-DP I have one

EDIT: you can get active adapters for $27:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ayport&x=0&y=0

only support up to 1920x1200, but if you are running monitors higher than that, you can probably afford a dual link adapter

It comes with a Mini DP to DP, you just need one of those "AMD Approved" adapters. What connectivity is your monitor going to be running?
