I think only two on the digital interfaces (DVI/HDMI/DP) and one on VGA (analog). But wait for others to respond too.

Is there any with 3? The three monitors only have HDMI, DVI-D and VGA connections.

Look at the poster. You can drive 3 monitors at once. Two digital (DP/HDMI/DVI) and one analog (VGA).

As mentioned above and as shown in the diagram you can use three monitors, however, the way you connect them may not be immediately obvious from the diagram - and its something I missed on first attempt.

 

A monitor can be connected to either the left-most DisplayPort connection OR the HDMI connection (not both).

 

A monitor can be connected to the right-most DisplayPort connection OR the DVI connection (not both).

 

A monitor can be connected to the VGA connection.

 

Also note that the DVI port can not be used with a VGA adapter to connect to a monitor as the DVI connection lacks the analog pins.
