why do no GPU's come with DVI these days? the only real issue with DVI is that it looks old school. other than that it's a great connector, as it does not have stupid copy protection on it, so you don't have to deal with all the issues that come from that, like for example adaptors not outputting. 

 

also Dual Link DVI is capable of 2560x1600 at 144hz... not bad for a technology from 1999

    There's no good reason to use it when it has been surpassed in every way.

    It's bulky, a pain in the butt to run through walls, and has fragile pins that can fall out.

    Plugging a GPU to your brain would be nuts.

    I've only dealt with DVI once and it was a HDMI adapter. Didn't take long for the pins to either bend or even sink inside. Thanks I hate it.

    ive never had dvi connectors break and I've been using it for years... Interesting.

    I'm sure you haven't experienced lots of things the majority of people have.

    That's why statistical significance exists.

     

    I've never had an outright failure, but I've had pins randonly fall out.

    Cable still worked, but phasing out a point of failure is never a bad thing.

    Esp if you did bother to gouge a hole in the wall, then fill it in to run a DVI cable only to accidentally bend the pins at some point.

    I think workstation GPUs have DVI still but I agree, it’s still a useful output.

     

    Adapters are readily available though

    Old days we only had CGA and EGA connections for the monitor. Then someone went to come up with a VGA interface and so on.....can we go back?
