The monitor I bought is a Samsung 305T
The only input it has is a single DVI-D
I was looking to get a new video card (leaning toward GTX 295). That card has 2x DVI-I out...
How do you connect these two devices if the cable is DVI-D to DVI-D in order to run at max resolution (2560x1600 @ 60Hz)?
I am pretty certain the DVI-D will fit into both types... But I remember reading that in order to run at 2560x1600 resolution, you need to use both output channels. If this is the case, would I need some kind of Y-splitter or do the graphic drivers handle this?
Unlike single-link DVI cables, dual-links feature a full set of pins for increased bandwidth, allowing you to view higher resolutions at longer distances without loss or interference.
"DVI-I" stands for "DVI-Integrated" and supports both digital and analog transfers, so it works with both digital and analog Visual Display Units. "DVI-D" stands for "DVI-Digital" and supports digital transfers only.
