Windows 7: DVI to Display Port feasibility

DVI to Display Port feasibility

My PC has a 4850 Radeon ATI with 2 Dual link DVI-D outputs. I recently acquired a Del U2412 monitor, which has several different input connectors, one of which is display port. ATM, I'm using DVI-D, but am wondering if a DVD-D to Display Port adaptor will increase the performance of this monitor? Thanks, Salton

msalton1, it will not improve the performance, it is used to help with multi-monitor setups. A straight Display port connection can improve bandwidth but with an adapter you gain nothing.

Thanks for your response, Dude. If this isn't OT to this forum, would I be able to use an HDMI output from a Cox cable set top box with an adapter to the Display port on the monitor? I know it wouldn't carry the audio. Again thanks (salt)

No. You cannot use an adapter to go from HDMI/DVI to DisplayPort. It can only go the other way, DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI. This is because DisplayPort is a completely different signal, you need what is called Active Adapters.
