There's no point to VGA anymore. It's analog and it's a compressed signal. The best way to use it is to have a really short cord.

 

Most TV's have HDMI, or a DVI port. The majority of monitors have DVI, or HDMI. My old HP w1907 monitor from 2008 has DVI.

The problem is that my school's and many other Projectors still only use VGA. That is the sole reason it is still a thing.

I'm pretty much over my DVI infatuation now that 4K is a thing.

 

DVI can only do 2560x1600 60p and carries no audio.

 

One of the things I really liked about it in the past was the fact that it (DVI-I specifically) could be adapted easily to either HDMI or VGA, making it basically a universal output for something like a laptop if you don't mind carrying around a couple little adapters (which I do) and I guess this is still valid, but it's definitely losing its luster now that it can't handle every display on the market anymore.

 

DP for lyfe.

I don't care for 4K yet and I won't until it is a standard. by then I'll need to upgrade anyway, so for now HDMI does what I want it to for my TV's

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

 

Psst...

 

 

Interfaces
  • DVI-D ( HDCP )
  • USB 3.0 upstream
  • 4 x USB 3.0 downstream
  • DisplayPort
  • Mini DisplayPort
  • HDMI
  • Audio line-out

Image is a bit off but its there on the far right (min DP).

I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.

Okay then that is a very special case.

 

If being the first on the block of a mass development is special...

 

They come in waves. I still remember BNC monitors and the VGA was a special one off, never going to take off, yea....

I'll change my favorite port to something else, when 4K is affordable.

DVI is still the best connector as of right now, in my opinion.

If I'm not mistaken Linus doesn't like:

HDMI because of the cap on the refresh rate and the cap on the max throughput in terms of resolution and no locking mechanism. 

VGA: Again refresh rate cap

Because DisplayPort and DVI exist is my reason, most likely Linus's too

yes, but there is nothing wrong with using HDMI if it's your only choice aside from VGA, lol. there is no visual difference between HDMI and DVI at this time.

(if you use a 60 Hz monitor anyway)

For me the biggest issue with HDMI is the fact that the Nvidia drivers default to a lower colour range setting, suitable for TVs. I had to create a custom resolution with the refresh rate at 60.01Hz (or something like that) to fool the drivers into using the proper color space. Otherwise blacks look grey and everything is a bit washed out lacking contrast.

 

Admittedly this is not a problem with the HDMI spec, but rather Nvidia's implementation.

Why doesn't everyone hate HDMI? It requires licensing fees and is inferior techology. The only issue that I have with VGA is that the ports are too bulky for slim laptops. Plus, if someone really needs to use VGA, it's very easy to get a DVI to VGA adapter.

I believe HDMI is not a free interface to implement, a manufacturer of monitors or other products in need of such interface, need to pay a fee to the founders if HDMI to use it. When HDMI came out there was no interface quite like it and functioned really well(in 2004). So the fact that it is not free(Display Port is) and is behind in the internal technology makes it an odd choice from a technical stand point. But because it was out early, it has now become the norm and is the standard for every display device available.


Everyone have a cool signature. I don't, so I thought I would write something.

- Cool right?

So this coupled with a flimsy connector and lack of bandwidth and features compared to Display Port makes it a worse connector than similar ones, and thus is why (I believe) Linus does not like that interface
