Beware! That adapter will not
work! I suspected it not to, because it only supports resolutions up to 1920x1200. Generally, if it doesn't support higher resolutions than that, it won't support 120Hz either. I checked the manufacturers website
and my thoughts were confirmed, at the end of their description they say '(single link DVI-D)'. So it is single link, while you need dual link.
If you want 120Hz, you'll bee looking at way more expensive adapters. Examples that should to the trick include this one
from club3d, apples adapter
(is mini display port though, but that can be converted with a really cheap cable), or generally one of these
. Yup, they're incredibly expensive (around a hundred bucks). Edit: this one
is confirmed to be working at 120Hz by a customer.
Little background: with dual link DVI you can have either a higher resolution or 120Hz, but both is not even possible
. The limitations of cable technology
. The same story holds for display port. With HDMI or single link DVI you can have only up to 1920x1200 resolutions @ 60Hz
; no higher resolutions, no 120Hz. (I believe newer versions like 1.3 do support more, but that is generally not supported by the devices).
Besides all this, congratulations on your third one! I'd love to see some pics of that setup! Edited by keesgelder - 11/13/12 at 5:52am
