Eliminates cost by making your DisplayPort video output compatible with an older, DVI-D (dual link) display
Suitable for DisplayPort video cards not capable of outputting DVI signals
Connect your DVI Dual Link display to a DisplayPort video source, for high resolution applications. The DP2DVID2 DisplayPort to DVI (Dual-Link) Adapter actively converts the output signal from a DisplayPort video source for use with a DVI-D display (monitor, etc.) or projector, helping to eliminate the equipment costs of upgrading a DVI display to a newer model for the sake of compatibility.The adapter supports high resolution video (up to 2560x1600), maintaining the outstanding graphical performance from a DisplayPort-equipped desktop video card, laptop or MacBook.DP2DVID2 performs an active DisplayPort-DVI conversion that is suitable for video sources that output either multimode (DP++) or single-mode DisplayPort signals. This ensures the adapter can be used even with graphics cards that aren't capable of outputting multimode DP++ signals, such as ATI Eyefinity cards.
