The StarTech 6' DisplayPort to DVI Cable lets you connect a DVI monitor to a DisplayPort video card/source. This adapter cable features a 25 pin male DVI connector and a 20 pin male DisplayPort connector, allowing you to make a direct video card-to-display connection, as opposed to having to use a separate DVI cable and DisplayPort adapter or vice versa. The DisplayPort Male to DVI Male cable supports High-Definition digital video up to 1080p and up to 1920x1200 PC resolution to give you clear and high-quality images. The StarTech DVI cable is a passive adapter that requires a DP port, which allows both DVI and HDMI signals to pass through the port and offers DVI display without having to upgrade to a DisplayPort monitor. The gold plated copper contacts provide maximum conductivity and minimize data loss. The molded strain relief and the PVC jacket ensure a lifetime of error-free data transmissions.
