Has anyone seen listings on the MST Hubs or the daisy-chains (mDP -> 3xDVI if that's possible) for use with the HD6000s for Eyefinity?
I've been failing to get an answer from Google about it for a while now...:shadedshu
Please place your listings in this thread.:toast:

Edit:
According to AMD, ‘the DisplayPort 1.2 hubs are expected to be available sometime in 2011. No cost has been determined, but we’re confident that they will be affordable, and enable a more cost effective solution for multi-display gaming than current competing solutions that require two cards.’ Rumour has it that the hubs will only be on sale well into next year and will cost around $150.

That answers the hub question, what about the daisy-chains?
Also, does anyone know whether there must be some sort of special support or something in the monitors for a daisy-chain?

DP 1.2 monitors have 2+ ports, with which you can connect up to 3 monitors in serial. Two ports on the card, so 6 monitors that way.

You can do this only with native DisplayPort 1.2 supportive monitors. No DP-DVI dongles work.

So you have a DP 1.2 supporting monitor then... bollocks...:banghead:
Has anyone successfully tried Eyefinity3 on the HD6000s using 2xDVI + 1xmDP at a resolution of 1920x1080 (or above) per monitor yet?
