I'll like to go from a 3 monitor landscape setup to a 5 monitor portrait setup.
Problem is I can't seem to find a supplier of a MST Hub here in the US or a Euro seller that will export a Club3D unit from the EU to the US.

Anyone here have a source that I may have overlooked :confused:

Nope, been waiting myself for these since before the 5870 launched(when they were first shown). That was...oh...like 4 years ago now? I don't expect to ever see one on N/A shores.

maybe have someone overseas here on TPU could order it and send it to you after sending them the money? sometimes a middle man can be helpful :D

I did have a conversation with Bizlink early this month and they insist their MST 1.2 hub will be available in the marketplace late June, early July.

But they also promised it last year, eh ;)

Yeah, I missed that part. Well, I tried.:eek:

Plus, from doing a little more research on their website it seems this isn't really a true hub. It actually just tricks the computer into seeing the 3 monitors as a single display.

That's part of what I am looking for, personally. I want display management for eyefinity on an external device. Not just DisplayPort daisy-chaining.

What it boils down to is that, really, having all the right hardware, to get that 5x monitor support, with certain cards. Or you simply get an Eyefinity6 card, that has DisplayPort only. I think it's too many options, and should be restricted t odevice solutions that can actually render >30FPS in 3d. As if answering what perforamnce level that is, and what app you're talking about...welll.....:roll:
