DP to Active DVI-D (Male) Long Cables

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recommendation for a DP to active DVI-D cable that has a male connector on the DVI-D side and the cable is a meter long ?


We typically run the outputs of our AMD FirePro V7900 cards into a DVI-D matrix switcher, from where we also derive the EDID information, as a way to switch between our primary and redundant servers.


It would be nice to have a single cable and avoid interconnects.

Yes, it would be nice with one cable only, but I doubt there is such a solution.

One will have to stick to short active DisplayPort/MDP to DVI adapters and short DVI-D cables for now.


With DisplayPort inputs on your matrix switch, you would achieve it, though.

Which is uncommon yet, unfortunately.
