On page 12 it states that "Triple Monitor setups are available using Dual Thunderbolt ports" and then

again reiterates at the bottom that "Triple monitor support requires 2x DisplayPort plus either D-Sub

HDMI
". Does this mean that the standard way of obtaining three monitor support by using 2x DVI or D-

Sub and one DisplayPort outputs do not work any more ?

Are these ports usable via adapters or do they have to be native ?

Three monitor support does not work by using 2x DVI or D-SUB and on Display port.

They cannot be used by adapters.

Hi runn3R and thanks for the answers even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear! I have spent a fair amount of money getting three monitor support running on my present GPU and didn't relish the idea of spending even more. :-\
