6990 eyefinity hookup question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I picked up an AMD Radeon 6990. Prior to this I was running eyefinity with two Radeon 5870's (1 GB versions) in CrossfireX. I was using One DVI connection, One HDMI connection, and One Displayport (not Mini) connection (I purchased a DELL monitor that supported the Displayport connection that the 5870 supported).

Now with the 6990, the full size Displayport connection is gone. Any solutions for getting the third monitor to work for me?

On a side note: I saw a Mini Displayport to Displayport adapter, but saw a bad review (via newegg) that stated it created "scanning lines" across the monitors.

PLEASE HELP!!!! thanks a ton!

yeah, I kind of got that feeling, but does that mean that I should be able to make my Regular Displayport monitor work with a Mini Displayport to Displayport converter *such as this*?

Hey,

If all you're looking for is a mini displayport to displayport cable, I think this will work http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2. I hope that's what you're looking for because it seemed like in your post you were just looking for a connection type between the mini displayport on your video card and the displayport connector on your monitor.

This, or for some reason yours didn't, then monoprice sells them cheap. Either miniDP->DP, or w/e you need. Purchased mine from there, was $10 after 2day shipping and worked perfect for my Eyefinity setup .

After further investigation my card was suppose to come with all of these connectors you mentioned, but apparently these bastards forgot to include the mini dp to dp connector because it is nowhere to be found! I did decide to go with just a regular mini dp to dp cable that i purchased from newegg. I only went with newegg because I ordered the cable before I saw the responses to this thread. Otherwise I probably would grabbed the a fore mentioned suggestion. Thanks for the info, I'll let you know how I end up in a few days!

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT EYEFINITY!!!!!!!!!!
