Hi,

 

I have following issue:

I had HD5870 Eyefinity card - 2GB memory and 6 mini displayports. I used to have connected 2 displays - through mDP-2-DVI converter cable.

I recently acquired third display and - again - connected it through mDP-2-DVI converter cable. However while I can detect all three displays, I can't make them all work at the same time. Do I need something like DisplayPort 1.2 MST-capable hub or is there a way to make it work with the cables I have?

After some digging - I understand that I need either native mDP support in 3+ display or I need active adapter to transform mDP to DVI. I wonder if that will work.
