Is the LT156 already available?

I'm interested in the DVI input to connect my future GeForce 3 with DVI output for displaying DVD's and PC games.

Does anyone know the max length of a DVI cable?


Thanx

Lt156's have become available. I do not know the answer to ou DVI cable question. I'm curious myself.


I'd also like to see the LT156 hooked up to your geforce 3 card.. Sounds very nice..



Regards,

The longest DVI cables currently available are 5 meters. The standard apparently was not intended for long distances and the reason longer cables aren't offered is that they won't work, although a rep at Molex has told me they're working on a 7 m or 8 m cable (I think). -- Herb

I don't really know, but it seems that a purely digital signal would be less susceptible to degradation in a long cable run that an analog signal would be. I believe you can get away with (analog) VGB monitor cables >25 feet w/o amplification and would expect even longer runs with digital. They'll be much harder to find, however, till DVI catches on.
