why does linus hate HDMI?

Recommended Posts

Why not just link this?  http://bit.ly/1eeF6RH

Because it's 2 hours 14 minutes? I mean if you're going to link that you should at least provide a timestamp. Although it is kinda watcheable at 1.5x speed, so I guess you save about 45 minutes by doing that.


I'm one of the few people I know that tend to repair electronics with a smith's hammer on a regular basis.

This would actually make for a good 'Fast As Possible' guide.

@LinusTech Pretty please? Explain the differences between DP, MiniDP, HDMI, Mini HDMI, VGA, and DVI-I/DVI-D.

Not the standard itself, regular displayport usually has that as seen in the picture but consider mini-display port as an exception for example.

Monitors don't use mini-DP nor do they use mini-HDMI.

Graphics cards do though

Yes especially with some good info on the variations of DVI and the correct usage of active and passive adapters and I am sure you will have a really popular guide.

No???- it links to the timestamp. must be broken for you because i linked it to the correct time.

 

here's the link to the time stamp if you're that lazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe0FhacqEj0&feature=youtu.be&t=1h44m41s

it wants to embed it without the timestamp so i had to break the url for you.

Didn't we just have a thread like this three days ago? 

 

It seems like this topic keeps reoccurring, are people so into tech that they fanboy over connectors?

lol yes, randomly posting a GPU with DP outputs doesn't mean anything.

Fine then.

You have not seen how thick, yet rather short my DVI single is. 


To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

What was the point of posting this? I was simply stating that display port as a standard need not have locking connectors and then it somehow escalated to pictures of GPU display outputs lol

 

As far as VGA goes, I find it useful for work- you guys clearly have not experienced enough projectors in the business world yet. The more presentations needed, the more useful VGA is as a dedicated port on a laptop. For desktops and monitors, VGA-based CRT monitors still have some excellent characteristics that LCD panels can't match yet- input lag and refresh rates for example.

The lack of bandwidth compared to Displayport and the fact that it costs more to use HDMI than Displayport (since DP isn't restricted by a trade mark).

Display port-Royalty free, supports 4k 60fps, locking connector I believe, easily converted. It's the best connection by far imo. Other than it's need to be adopted by the mainstream.
