Dear Customer,

Response and Service Request History:
Yes, you are correct, there is no way some one with three monitors with dvi only ports on them can use eyefinity for a tri monitor set up. The display port to display port is required.

I've escalated my question re this to second level support maybe I was just dealing with an idiot at ati support

i hope so even if i have to buy a diffrent dongle has to be better than selling a monitor i have had 5 months for the same monitor with displayport.

The ATI guy Dave on B3D forum confirmed this. There are only 2 display engines that drive legacy ports (non DP ports), so 1 must be a display port. Apparently AMD are in talks with monitor manufactures about getting a adapter supported.
