Hi folks,

I'm looking for a video card to drop into a PC to output video to my 1080p Panasonic, and have read around here that an DVI-to-HDMI cable may be a good way to go.


But, I read on wikipedia that I'll need a DVI "dual link" to support my hdtv's 1920x1080 resolution. If this is true, does that mean that this cable won't work?








The excerpt from the wiki article on DVI:






* Example display modes (single link):

o HDTV (1920 × 1080) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (139 MHz)

o UXGA (1600 × 1200) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (161 MHz)

o WUXGA (1920 × 1200) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (154 MHz)

o SXGA (1280 × 1024) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (159 MHz)

o WXGA+ (1440 x 900) @ 60 Hz (107 MHz)

o WQUXGA (3840 × 2400) @ 17 Hz (164 MHz)


* Example display modes (dual link):

o QXGA (2048 × 1536) @ 75 Hz with GTF blanking (2×170 MHz)

o HDTV (1920 × 1080) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (2×126 MHz)

o WQXGA (2560 × 1600) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (2x174 MHz) (30" Apple, Dell, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)

o WQXGA (2560 × 1600) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (2x135 MHz) (30" Apple, Dell, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)

o WQUXGA (3840 × 2400) @ 33 Hz with GTF blanking (2x159 MHz)




The cables I've been able to find have only the pin configuration of the "DVI-D single link". Will this handle a 1920x1080 resolution from the video card?

If some of you kind folks could enlighten me on the subject before I buy a video card / dvi-hdmi cable, I'd much appreciate it!
