DVI or HDMI - Page 2

post #11 of 16
they both are the same in video quality but the HDMI passes audio through. The only other difference iirc is that DVI is capable of going up to much higher resolutions and HDMI is pretty much good for 1080p... someone correct me if im wrong im just going off of what I think I remember.

Also would there be any input lag between the two? Would DVI have a lower input lag because it only caries video and not sound?

It would be great if someone could answer this!

Thanks!

I always thought HDMI and DVI were pretty much the same, but maybe someone can shed light on possible differences (for example, quality of cables impacting performance, ect..).

It might've been a monitor preset, I know there are some monitors that handle the inputs differently. However, if you used an HDMI > DVI dongle or vice versa you'd probably see the same results.

Although the digital signal output by the video card may be the same, results vary. It actually depends on the monitor. When the computer and the monitor goes through their "handshake" (they exchange capabiliities and HDCP info), the monitor will determine the input type (HDMI, DVI) and adjust acordingly. There is no concrete rule on how the manufacturer of any monitor implements the HDMI, but often HDMI is put through a processor in the monitor on the HDMI input that typically does not exist for DVI. This is the case with most monitors that are sold as televisions. The processor will extract the audio from the HDMI signal, but can also often alter the digital video signal through its video processor/scaler.

DVI and HDMI are not the same. While they both carry video, there are dozens of functional differences other than just sound.


xandypx got it right. Some monitors do additional processing for HDMI and there is no standard. i.e. My monitor overscans with a HDMI but works fine with DVI.

Generally, you want to use DVI for the easiest setup with computer monitors.

Is there any input lag between the two? Maybe DVI is quicker than HDMI?

Having a higher refresh rate will improve input lag. DVI and HDMI specification does not affect input lag.
