A $30 Adapter, a World of Eyefinity Possibilities
One of the main reasons for the high price of many active adapters is their compatibility with the high bandwidth, high resolution dual link DVI standard. However, a single-link DVI connection still allows for resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60Hz which encompasses the vast majority of monitors currently on the market. Even the soon to be standard 1080P computer display resolution falls well within the limits of a single link DVI. If you want higher resolutions you will still need to go with the dual link connection though.
Make no mistake about it, active single link DisplayPort to DVI adapters havenít been seen on the market as of yet but things are about to change. AMD is aiming to satisfy the vast majority of the gamers out there by pushing several manufacturers to begin distributing both the standard and mini DisplayPort versions more widely. Board partners will also be including them as part of their standard packaging for some ATI GPUs. The price if bought separately will be a svelte $30 and retailers should begin stocking them over the course of the next week or so.
