Hey guys, have an M4800 with M5100 Firepro card installed and looking to daisy-chain my monitors.

The monitors are compatible DP1.2 in and out.

DP1.2 on the system.

Has anyone been able to configure this / know if its possible? The information ive come across from Dell and AMD seem to suggest different information as to whether its availble on any mobile system..

If the card is DP 1.2 compatible then you might just wanna go for an mst hub as that should definately work with the laptop.  Daisy chaining is actually written in as beirg part of DP 1.2 so if the mst hubs don't work out then the card probably isn't 1.2 compatible.  Just do keep in mind that if you're looking to pull an eyefinity configuration out then make sure that all the displays you will be using for it are the same resolution to ensure top quality picture from each of them.  Sadly trying to use a 1280x1024 crt with 2 1920x1080 lcds will drag your lcds down to 1280x1024 as well and probably stretch the picture.
