    If I don't see dual-DVI models, I will officially spank someone at AMD.
    I'm sure displayport has many excellent qualities, but anyone doing any sort of photo or artwork is NOT going to want active converters on their monitor cables!

    Why?

    The signalling is different, but the picture being sent is the same, the adapters just make this same data available over fewer connections to DVI/HDMI.

    Of which cards? The 68x0 series will have dual-DVI along with a bevy of other connectors, and assuming they follow the same pattern as the 5k series so will the 67x0s. Low profile cards can't fit two DVI ports, so you'd be looking at an adapter of some kind with a low profile card, and the lower end 6x00 cards are targeted at home users who don't care what adapters their display goes through as long as it gets there in the end. And passive DP - DVI adapters work very nicely as long as you're not trying to get a 3+ screen eyefinity setup working...

    Surely the people who would be concerned about native dual DVI in a lower-end card will be going for the FirePro workstation cards, rather than the Radeon consumer cards, and I'm sure they'll be catered for (albeit at a 200% markup )...

    Anyone doing any sort of photo or artwork is going to have a decent monitor with display port... aren't they? I mean, my Dell 2408 does, and its several years old now.

    How can you not see it? The picture clearly shows two DVI ports.

    Nonsense. The same digital image will appear on your screen. It's 100% digital so even if you have to adapt it 3 times (DP > DVI > HDMI), there will be zero degradation.

    The 68XX must be a very early sample if it's not a fake - it still has an ATI sticker on the fan.
