guys can we connect DVI D dual link cable to a DVI I dual link output??
like my monitor has a dual link DVI D output and gpu has dual link DVI I output.so can i connect my DVI D dual link cable on both sides without using any converter..??
Almost everyone does it without thinking about it. All cards I've ever seen have DVI-I outputs, including the one I have, but almost all monitors are DVI-D. I use a DVI-D Dual-Link cable on my graphics cards and connect it to the DVI-D connection on my monitor.
DVI-I is a universal connection type. It accepts both digital and analog cables.
Yes you can do this, no converter required. DVI-I by design supports DVI-D and DVI-A connections. As long as the GPU output connector and cable are dual-link (I assume you have a high-res monitor?), you should not have any problems.
Be aware that some newer GPUs have single- and/or dual-link DVI-I or DVI-D outputs on the same card. Check the GPU specs to be sure.
There is another standard that is mistakenly called DVI I-Link which is on many AMD/ATI GPUs that come bundled with Dell PCs which is actuially 2 DVI-I (Or VGA, or DP) outputs in a single interface and you will need an adapter (which generally comes with the card) in order to hook up monitors to it. http://www.amd.com/us/products/workstation/graphics/ati...
