Does DVI-I support DVI-D

Post by chimera »

Hi,
I'm new to 3d other then anaglyph :anaglyph and just thought it is time to buy a 3d monitor. :shutter
My graphics card has 2 DVI-I ports but I have no idea if these support DVI-D.

After searching I've settled on Samsung S23A700D which needs DVI-D.
This is my Graphics Card: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVID ... ifications
Do you think there would be any problems connecting that monitor through DVI socket?
(I know this monitor doesn't support nvidia 3d vision btw)

Thanks in advance.

DVI-I has all the necessary signals for DVD-D so the answer is yes. DVI-I is similar to DVI-D but also have the analogue vga-signals in the interface.

Thank you very much, I read same thing in a few forums but when I called the distributor here of Asus, they told me "DVI-I is analog and DVI-D is digital, they wouldn't work even with a converter".

So just wanted to make sure.
