Well Newegg doesn't have it marked on their page as active, so one can only assume either way. That's why I said, if it doesn't work you could always send it back.
The thing with generic adapters is that theres no real info on whats in them, thus its risky to try and buy a cheap one (<20$).Quote:
An active adapter converts a true displayport signal into DVI/HDMI/VGA/whatever else. It will have either a converter chip or a DAC built in to do said conversion. Contrary to popular belief, they do not need to have a usb power connection, in fact there are many that do not.
A general rule of thumb with active and passive adapters is the price. An active adapter will always be more expensive than a passive adapter :-P
Well now i can confirm that the HIS dongle for eyefinity link works. All I needed to do is go into catalyst and enable the 3 monitor, I'll post some pics later on once I get everything set up.
It's an active adapter, so I don't see why it wouldn't. :)
Tourists. That explains a lot :lol:
Whatever happened to AMD`s DisplayPort hub that were supposed to come out right after the 6800 seriesÉ I just heard about them when those cards launched but they seem to have abandoned making it. It sounded like a neat idea.
