ATI R5xx cards all have dual link transmitters

The Inquirer wraps up some information about ATI's Avivo video technology and says ATI's R5xx series will have dual link transmitters on the whole product range.
Just to clarify, we learned that the whole series 5 products will have two dual link transmitters. This means that R520, RV530 and RV515 cards can support two displays running at 2560 x 1600 resolutions. I don’t recall that a single card was capable of running two such displays before, and now even the sub $100 Radeon X1300 based on RV515 will be able to power two displays, each running at 2560x1600.

Our sources close to ATI implied that display capabilities of $99 card will beat flagship $499+ Geforce 7800GTX when it comes to resolution support.
