Sapphire includes two Mini Display Port to DVI adapters to allow the card to connect to DVI monitors. There are also two Mini Display Port to HDMI adapters to use HDMI monitors. The fifth adapter is a mini Display Port to Display Port adapter. As the card has six mini Display Ports that means another adapter or a monitor with a mini Display Port will have to be used to have six monitors. The card requires a 6-pin and an 8-pin power connection so adapters for both are included with the bundle.
