Re: DVI to Dual link?

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?

Single-link DVI can't support a resolution of 2560 x 1600, so either the specification is inconsistent or the DVI port supports dual-link operation.  And yes, you would need a dual-link DVI cable – one that has wires for both links, not just the "1920 x 1200 pixels or lower" one.

Is D-Sub the same as DisplayPort?

I believe that in this context, D-Sub would be a connector for a VGA port.
