Hi. When you say "simutaneous", what do you mean? Do you - or does the press release - mean that 4 displays can be "hooked up" at once, or just the standard 2 displays, through any choice of connector?

There's currently an interesting HD 3870x2 that can output to 4 displays - each via dual link HDCP-enabled DVI. Man that's a lot of pixels!

Appreciate any authorative replies.

I'm not sure to be honest, it's just a cut and paste of Palit's press release - I'll try and find out!

just heard back from Palit - G94 still only supports two simultaneous display outputs:

Here's the list of configurations I was given:

DVI + DVI

DVI + CRT

DVI + Displayport

DVI + HDMI

That's a crying shame. I'm really upset. The word "simultaneously" is so misleading. Never mind, though.

I'll have to investigate the 4-DVI 3870x2... thinking about it, it might be best to wait and see what happens with the 9800x2. I'll have a think. (Crysis will have to wait a bit longer, though.)

Thank you very much for your help though - you're a diamond.
