Will a DVI Male/HDMI Female Adapter cause any lag?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My monitor only has DVI and my video card only has HDMI.

Quick Question:
Will there be any discernable difference between using a Male DVI with Female HDMI Adapter and then connecting my Adapter and Video Card (via an HDMI cable) versus no adapter and just Male DVI to Male HDMI?

Nope, there's no processing being done so you won't have lag.

This, straight digital throughput, if there were to be lag it would be so minute that you couldn't comprehend it

If your cables are 20+ meters long on the other hand. then maybe

Data travels along copper wires at 2/3rds the speed of light (200 000 000 m/s). A 200 mile cable would add 1 millisecond of lag.
