ATI R580 lacks HDMI support

WE FOUND out that the top end ATI chip does not have support for HDMI. Back at CeBIT, we asked about high end HDMI cards and we learned that none of the partners will actually have any card faster than X1600 with an HDMI connector.

Acording to a document we've seen, top end ATI cards based on both R520 and R580 actually do not have native HDMI support. Both RV515, Radeon X1300 and RV530, Radeon X1600 have support for HDMI but you do need to add a Silicon Image HDCP chip to make it work.
