Will an active displayport to dual-link DVI power an OC'd QNIX QX2710?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Simply as the title states, I am thinking to get a GPU with only displayports and if I get an active displayport to dual-link DVI, could it power my monitor at 1440p @ 96hz? Thank you! thumb.gif

I am speaking of an adapter as such: http://www.ebay.com/itm/StarTech-DP2DVID-Display-Port-to-DVI-Dual-Link-Active-Video-Converter-INV-N84-/132089668874?hash=item1ec128650a:g:cfsAAOSw4DJYmlR8

I seriously doubt it. Most of those devices are intended for 1080p60 operation.

Hence, why I said active and not passive. Active is listed at 2560x1600 @ 60Hz. After the scouring the internet, I cannot really find any concrete evidence that user's have tried what I am doing. I do see people mention these adapters powering their monitors, but the majority do not bother to OC their hardware, so I do not know for sure if they can handle the extra bandwidth; however, I do know they can handle the regular bandwidth. Maybe someone can enlighten me a little more?

You can not get 1440p @ 96hz.
I bought three active adapters, two were over $100.
I got 90Hz but had constant problems.
You can do 1440p @ 60 Hz, it's a little more stable but not perfect.

Iirc you need one of the bizlink/accel adapters that support 3D mode for higher rated driver. And even then apparently colour depth drops down once you overclock past a certain pixel clock. I'm guessing you've got a Korean OC monitor and want a 1080Ti FE, since I'm in the exact same boat smile.gif

The black Dell Bizlink adapter does not let you overclock

I can confirm that I have an X-Star DP2710 that was overclocked to 120 Hz and was working fine on a DVI-D cable running off of a GTX 970.

I received an nVidia 1080 Ti FE and attempted to hook it up via the Displayport to DVI-D adapter that they included in the box. I am only able to get the monitor to show a picture if I underclock my monitor to 57 Hz or less using this packaged adapter, which is a passive adapter.

I ordered an active adapter from Amazon and will report my findings when it arrives tomorrow.

Even if I am able to get it to run at 60 Hz with an active adapter, I am now strongly considering selling this 1080 Ti on eBay to see if I can get back what I paid for it, and then go back to my GTX 970 until I can find an aftermarket version of the 1080 Ti that actually retains a DVI-D port directly on the card. To have a card with this much power but to never be able get more than 60 FPS seems a waste.

Alternatively, I guess I could go for one of those GSYNC monitors instead, but I already have a monitor with a 1440p PLS panel that is capable of 120 FPS.

Don't forget Nvidia has contracts with most of the world's monitor makers for GSYNC. This is a clever way to phase out the cheap korean monitors and force people into GSYNC monitors.

Hey im in the same boat and was wondering if you had any luck getting higher refresh rates with the active adapter and if so how high were you able to go?

Sadly not. The active adapter topped out at 60 Hz. I ended up returning the Founders Edition card and buying an aftermarket one that had the DVI-D port on it and am back at 120 Hz.
