ATI 5870 display port adaptors????????

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have the Saphire 5870 2 GB eyefinite and I am way confused about the display port adaptors that came with my GPU. LIke for 1 it didn't come with a vga display port adapter and 2 the four prongs needed for the DVI are not on the adapters that it came with. Is this a problem with me or with the adapters? Should I return it?

For example here is the adapter


Her is a DVI plug......

These are just extension cables? Display port refers to a very different kind of plug than what you have there.

The adapter is DVI-D
but your cable is DVI-I

DVI-D only supports digital, so no vga adapters work.
DVI-I supports both, those are the four pins/prongs that are used for analog.

either get a DVI-D cable or cut those 4 prongs off.

if it supports both, why would he need to cut anything off?

The DVI cable he has wont fit into the display port adapter with the 4 pins/prongs that are only used in DVI-I (analog+Digital) and DVI-A (analog only). Display.
