    Out of the box, it will not, at least on the OS X side. Eyefinity is both controlled and maintained by AMD, not Apple, so any Eyefinity functionality will have to come directly from AMD in the form of an OS X version of Catalyst Control Panel type utility within OS X. Under Windows (BootCamp), Eyefinity should work, as these cards appear to use a common reference design from Sapphire.

  • You will need two active Mini-Displayport to DVI adapters in order to support 3 monitors.
