Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 154

post #1531 of 11285
Ordered mine, has arrived in the UK, just awaiting delivery over the next couple of days thumb.gif

It's going to go on my review test bed. Will be fun running quad 7970s through it smile.gif

You do not have 2 Dual Link DVI's on your HD 5850, you have one SL-DVI and one DL-DVI. DVI-I or DVI-D, it makes no difference whatsoever. I would ignore anything that refers to DVI-I/D/A at the moment; your card doesn't have DVI-A ports anyways.
EDIT: Nothing I could find could corraborate this statement. Seems I remembered something wrong. It applies to the HD 6xxx series of cards, but does not seem to apply to the HD 5xxx series of cards.

The only thing you need to know is that your card has a DL-DVI port (the "bottom" one, most likely. the one in line with the other ports), and as long as you run your catleap to that one, it will display a proper, 2560x1440 picture. If you feel like blowing $100 on a DP-> Dual-link DVI adapter, that is also an option (it just costs more). It is almost certain you do not need it.

Incompatibility issues are either non-existant, or have to do with something other than port connectivity.

My HD 5770 (Sapphire) comes with one SL-DVI-I port and one DL-DVI-I port. Both ports are keyed for DL-DVI, but only one can a output DL-DVI (so I can use a DL-DVI cable for either port). See edit above.

For all the people that have a Catleap and post here, please add yourself to the Club list and OC survey.  This information helps a ton of other people when trying to decide what to do.


Thanks again!  thumbsupsmiley.png

 

EDIT:  Clearly, I didn't get to the OP and make the additions/changes I wanted to this weekend (heck just got on and had to read through another 80 posts!)  I am culling all the data out - even the card issues, display crap for laptops, etc - and will get that all in one place over the next few days.  Going in the spa with some vino!  Cheers all!

Yeah but it is important for me to get into the bios with ease. Does it have a VGA port on the monitor? If it does I can have both connected and when I need to go into the bios I can just change inputs.

Nope no vga.

 EDIT: well for the base models.  The multi input does.

Dude I checked and it two dual links..but anyhow I appreciate your input and the fact that you say i wont have issues connecting it... i really don't want to buy the cable if I don't have to, it kinda defeats the purpose of getting this monitor for $360-400 in the first place... for 150 more I can get the HP.

I guess I can take the catleap and find out for myself. (no pun intended tongue.gif)
Worst case scenario I just get the Displayport to dual link dvi-d, right?
Thanks for the help.

Only the physical pinout is for DL-DVI. It is the actual graphical subsystem of the entire HD 5xxx series that does not support 2x DL-DVI outputs; they simply cannot do it electronically, whatever the ports themselves are physically keyed for.
EDIT: Nothing I could find could corraborate this statement. Seems I remembered something wrong. It applies to the HD 6xxx series of cards, but does not seem to apply to the HD 5xxx series of cards.

You don't need 2x DL-DVI ports. You only need one DL-DVI port to run the Catleap @ 1440p.

I don't know about the specifics, but I can attest to my catleap (version 2B with the 120hz capable controller board), combined with my HD 5770, can and does get into BIOS without any issues. I'm staring at it now (posting on a laptop).

Edit: as a matter of fact it works better than my U2312hm hooked up via displayport. My catleap consistently shows the BIOS ~300-400 ms faster than the U2312hm.

Is the monitor stand of the Catleap really that bad ?

The crossover seems to have better stand but its 30$ more expensive
