With the MST Hub, Club 3D has a device in its portfolio, that allows you to connect three displays on one DisplayPort 1.2 connector. In the end the system recognizes the three attached devices as independent displays, which is possible thanks to the so called multi strem technology (MST). DisplayPort supports MST since version 1.2. In combination with an AMD Eyefinity 6 capable card and the Club 3D MST Hub you can attach up to six displays even if the card doesn't offer six outputs.

Back in 2010, when AMD announced their Radeon HD 6000 series graphics cards, they proudly announced, that these cards can cope with up to six displays even if they have less than six display connectors. In order to attach six displays to such a card a so called Multi Stream Hub is necessary. Meanwhile Club 3D has such a Multistream Hub in its portfolio and we’re now going to have a look at it.

2 important reasons why this MST hub has been eagerly anticipated:
1. You can run 5x1P setup with 5Monitors from any(newer) AMD GPU. Before you were Limited To 4 Monitos. Even tough you have 2x DVI, HDMI 2x mDP. 2x DVI+HDMI do not work All 3 together.(only on Flex edition)
2. You won't have tearing anymore! Using DVI+DO+HDMI might cause tearing on some monitors with certain adapters. Won't happen if you use 3x DP

Btw: what about daisy Chain? Dp1.2 is capable of 4x 1920x1080@60Hz. So can you Daisy Chain one of the outputs of the Club3d MST Hub?

Is the Hub itself capable of 4k resolution? Just using 1 output theoretical do 1.2 should do. Does the hub?
And that would also mean that you can do 2x 4k @30Hz?

 Re: finally
Unfortunately I don't know neither about daisy chaining nor 4K capabilities. I'll double check that with Club3D to give you the answers.
