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

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!

Or just get One with DVI dual link. There are still manufacturers out there who didn't decide to skimp straight to Display and HDMI.
