Re: DVI to Dual link?

I found this:


It lists as specs:



D-SUB = 1 x D-SUB

DVI =1 x DVI

Yet under max resolution, it says Max Resolution = 2560 x 1600 (DL-DVI).

Does the listed DVI become Dual Link DVI with the purchase of a separate cable?

Is D-Sub the same as DisplayPort?

Many of the high res monitors come with a dual-link DVI cable (or you can buy one for around $5). Most DVI ports on video cards (including that one) are dual-link ports.

D-Sub is the ancient analog VGA connector. DisplayPort would be listed as DisplayPort.
