You can use this for eyefinity. In fact, you should use this for eyefinity. Plug your Display Port cable to the mini display port that is included and add two more DVI. You get yourself an eyefinity set up.

I have eyefinity set up right now using the miniDP with two DVI. It works perfectly.

I can use 3 DVI's, 3 VGA'S, or 3 HDMI. All 3 of my monitor have those options available.

I think the Sapphire 6970 (Vietnam version) comes with a certify eyefinity DP. I'm not to sure about the 6950's.

I have an active display port that I bought separately. I might exchange my VisionTek 6950 & Accell Display port for a 6950 Sapphire if it comes with an eyefinity display port. That way I can save some money but I just needed to make sure the Mini DP can run eyefinity.

Does anyone else who own a Sapphire 6950 have a certify eyefinity Mini DP included with the purchase?

5 out of 5 eggsRating: 5/5Aarons question.
Pros: Price
Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The included adapter is actually a mini display port to display port bud. And yes you do need an active display port to dvi/hdmi for the 3rd screen.

+rep everyone
