Doubts about the right cables to connect 6 monitors to Sapphire GPRO 6200

Hi, I have to buy a graphics card "Sapphire GPRO 6200" and connect six monitors Hannspree "HQ272PPB", but I can not understand what right kind of cables(passive/active) I need to use to make all monitors work simultaneously. Can you kindly tell me which exact cables to use for the connection? These are the monitor inputs:

1 input Display port

1 input Mini Display port

2 input HDMI Ver:1.4

If necessary, the link to the monitor model features is available here:

Might be better to ask Sapphire Tech.(Professional) support.

Or possibly fsadough​ may be able to help.

Re: Doubts about the right cables to connect 6 monitors to Sapphire GPRO 6200

There are no active or passive cables. This terminology refers only to adapters and I see your monitor has mDP input and the Sapphire GPRO 6200 has mDP outputs. You just need to get 6x mDP-mDP cables.

  • Whenever you convert from one signal to another, then you would differentiate between ACTIVE and PASSIVE. For instance there is an ACTIVE or PASSIVE DP-DVI or DP-HDMI adapter. All DP-VGA adapters are ACTIVE, because VGA is an analog signal, DVI and HDMI are digital signals.
