I have 6 monitors with VGA connectivity (LEDs). I am planning to buy Visiontek eyefinity 2GB DDR5 with 6 miniDPs.
As cautioned in many forums and YT videos, we need to have active convertors.
The supplier is providing 6 cables along with the card. 2 x mDP to single link DV-I and 4x mDP to Display Port.
My question here is, do i have to use 4 active convertors (DP to VGA)for the last 4 monitors. or can I simply use passive DP to VGA convertors to get 6 display.
Kindly help in this regards as I am stuck with this.
Thanks in advance
Yes you would need 4 active adaptors.
