Default Mini displayport adapter in 6900 series?

Hi all, as you know, the 6900 series has two DVI ports and two mini displayports. I have a 5870 connected to 3 monitors using two DVI cables and one displayport to single-link DVI adapter.

I want to buy a 6970 card, but my question is: how can I connect this card to my third DVI monitor? Do I need to buy a new adapter, mini displayport to DVI? Does the card include a mini displayport to displayport adapter?

I have found this image from a Sapphire 6970, it looks like it includes a mini displayport to displayport adapter, but they don't mention it on the article:

Quote:
Included in the accessories package is a Quick Installation Guide, driver disk, Molex-to-PCIe cables, VGA-to-DVI adapter, HDMI cable, and a CrossFire bridge


To me, the mini displayport to displayport adapter would be the one between the VGA-DVI adapter and HDMI cable. What do you think?

Yes, that would be the Mini-DP -> DP adapter. I have a different model that doesn't have the flex cable that I'm using with my HD 6870. But, I can't seem to get a working DP -> DVI adapter at all. So, I'm using the DP -> VGA adapter instead and it does work.

Just received the Sapphire 6970, I can confirm it includes the mini-dp to dp adapter for EyeFinity

Not sure why that's a lol, it's just an adapter and is not required for eyefinity, although DP is (you can get mini-DP cables...)

And it is mentioned in the review -

Quote:
A 4-pin Molex to 6-pin PCI-E power connector adapter and dual 4-pin to 8-pin PCI-E power connector, DVI to VGA adapter, medium length Crossfire bridge (for double spaced PCI-Express slots, but not quad spaced), a mini-DisplayPort to full DisplayPort adapter, and a case badge.
