Who is better between HDMI, and Dual DVI (DVI-I, and DVI-D)???? for 60 Hz and 120 Hz monitor - Page 2

what I must do to minimize the input lag when browsing? because it's really annoying my eyes.

so, based on your explanation, when use the 120 Hz monitor, do I need 2 output (DVI-I and D), or just one of them?

DVI-I is no better at handling higher resolutions than DVI-D (at least if you're discussing dual-link). However, DVI-I is better when you need the flexibility of being able to pass either digital or analog signals as DVI-D can only pass digital singles.

so DVI-I and DVI-D have the same quality images when gaming, right?

I started to read it as I was looking for cables that specifically said that they were 1.4b cables. I'll admit that I am unaware as to whether there are any 120 Hz 1080p monitors currently out for consumers. What I wanted to state is that 120 Hz refresh rate has been implemented into the HDMI's standards. As far as when 1.4b compliant monitors will begin rolling out, I have no idea as I have not look into that.

You'll have to be more specific in what's happening with the scrolling and when you're gaming. When comparing DVI-I to DVI-D, when the signal's source (display output) is digital, both cables will look the same. That question pointed at Darren9: you would only need one. Darren9 was simply explaining that DVI-I would be falling back to the digital signal as monitors are typically digital.

Not trying to thread jack ... but I was curious how Display port fits into the realm as it is also a video connectivity cable .. ... I am currently using DVI (forgot which 1 ... lol) but I have the option for Display port ... I am running 1200p

DisplayPort is suppose to be a standard that compliments HDMI, not to replace HDMI. DisplayPort is intriguing because it uses packetized data transmission for its interface, similar to what Ethernet, USB, and PCI Express uses. There are other features that I could write here but I would only be citing what VESA and Wikipedia have on their pages as I don't know much more than than the first two lines I wrote (I need to read up on DisplayPort tech more tongue.gif).

when gaming and benchmark, I have no problem..., it's amazing, but when browsing, I can see some flickering when I scroll down to the top and otherwise, and see some input lag when I switch from one application to the other application like chrome to winamp, etc

I think youre confused on what input lag is. Input lag is the amount of time it takes a monitor to display the information sent to it by the video card. What youre talking about is screen flicker of which there is many causes. If i can find it again on tftcentral.com i will post a link.
