3 DVI outputs on ATI 6870?

Recommended Posts



Is it possible to get 3 different DVI outputs from an AMD 6870 card? When I connect 2 displays on DVI ports and one other via a Mini Display Port to DVI, Catalyst software tells that only 2 of them can be active.


I can get 3 VGA outs though...

Yes, this is as the card is designed.

Please read in this thread for more on the subject:



"Irrespectively the number of connectors, DisplayPort or MiniDisplayPort, all outputs over two (2) “legacy” connectors,

VGA/DVI/HDMI, MUST use ACTIVE DP/MiniDP—>DVI/HDMI adapters, passive will NOT work."
