Can't wait to see the prices on these cards though, should be a great purchase for anyone looking for a mid range upgrade.
Can anyone find any info on multimonitor support? Curious if these cards are able to do 3+ monitors without the active DP splitter.
They have non-active DP->DVI converters now that are $20ish and work just as good as an active one. Also, DP 1.2 that the 68xx series supports has daisy chaining of display port for up to 3 monitors from one single DP.
I've been researching all this of late since my mate in the army wants me to build him a PC early next year when he's back from being posted overseas and his one stipulation is that he really wants 3 monitors and a rig powerful enough to run them. So even if I don't end up getting a 6970 I'm probably going to be getting one for him in ~6 months.
