BenQ XL2411 and RTX GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I bought a new GPU that only have DP and 1 HDMI, I can't get 144hz from the HDMI, 144hz only works with the DVI-D Dual link cable. 

 

So I was wondering will an active adapter from DP to DVI Single link work? I have seen those with dual link active adapter but they are pricey, almost the same price for a new monitor.

Yes you can get 144hz on dvi.

You'll want dp to dvi-dl or dl-dvi. Samething

So the product I have linked above will work?

No, it will not work. It is only a Single-Link DVI adapter, 144 Hz requires a Dual-Link DVI adapter.

When I look at the product image it looks like dual link, but the description says single link (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#/media/File:DVI_Connector_Types.svg)

 

Single-Link and Dual-Link DVI connectors both use the full pin connector, and therefore look identical. You cannot distinguish them by eye.

 

Some manufacturers make Single-Link connectors with the missing pins in the center as shown in that diagram, but it is an unofficial practice and technically not within the DVI Specification.

Pin out looks correct but it should say dual link dvi and it doesn't

Nope, you will need one that has a transcoding chip (which means a much bigger plug on the DVI side) to get dual link DVI. For example: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DYRQXMK/?tag=linus21-20


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

What's your GPU? If it has DP++ you can get a passive adapter like this https://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-DVI-Adapter-Passive-Display/dp/B0035PS57C which has dvi2 and will support 144Hz

This is incorrect. Please read this:

I wouldn't waste your money on an active adapter, just grab a new monitor if you can afford it. Newer cards will eventually stop shipping with DVI.

 

Good luck!
