The card (ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB) has 1 dual-DVI port and 2 mini display ports.


The dual-DVI is hooked up to a 30" 2560x1600 Dell screen. I also have a 27" 2560x1440 screen. Can I hook this new screen up to one of the display ports? Is there a way to get both screens working? Both screens are Dual-DVI only - no other hookups. thanks

  • I am seeing that the ports on the 5870 are indeed display ports. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… According to the Wikipedia page, they support up to 2560x1600. That means they might work on my Mac, but I have not seen any definitive confirmation that it will work well. Mar 25, 2013 at 18:31

Apple Store: Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter or similar.

  • Yes that should work. And if not, you might have to connect 1 of the screens via DisplayPort and the other via a DVI-to-USB adapter. Mar 26, 2013 at 3:37
