Advanced Micro Devices this week said that a number of technology partners soon plan to release an inexpensive DisplayPort-to-Single-Link DVI adapter. The new adapter will allow to use conventional or slightly outdated displays with graphics cards equipped with modern DisplayPort connectors. In particular, it will be easier to assemble a multi-monitor ATI Eyefinity setup.

ATI Radeon HD 5000-series graphics cards allow to drive from three to six displays, however, up to now end-users had to either use different displays with DP and DVI connectors or acquire monitors with both. Thanks to the new adapter, it will be possible to use three or six monitors with DVI connection.

The availability of the inexpensive DisplayPort to Single Link DVI adapter, with a suggested retail price of $30, expands the ATI Eyefinity ecosystem to include the massive number of LCD monitors with DVI connectors and resolutions up to 1920x1200. This encompasses the vast majority of monitors sold today, with many models available for well under $200 each. Now, ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor solutions are within reach of virtually everyone, from die-hard gaming enthusiasts to individuals wanting more screen real estate to improve workflow.

Even though multi-monitor setups are more accessible than before as monitors become available at a range of price points, it should be noted that for proper gaming on multiple displays customers will still have a few models to choose from since ultra-thin bezel displays are required for maximum comfort.
