I just got some more information (not all of which im allowed to disclose):
- Use of Nvidia drivers Pre-185.xx is highly recommended for all Triplehead2Go setups.
- Windows 7 compatibility is not yet fully supported.

Guess everyone else'll have to wait and see

For Nvidia, I'm not under any NDAs.... Basically, their driver support for triple widescreen modes has been "broken" since 185.xx and onwards.

yikes.... don't know where you found that expensive as heck adapter, but yes.

Try using our "price compare" link here @ HwC and search for "Displayport adapter". There are some HP DP -> DVI-D adapters out there for $20-25

They will NOT work. You must use an active adapter OR a native DP monitor for one of the screens.

I've tried it personally.
