6990 Sound through displayport to HDMI adapter?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all, joining the 6990 owners club soon gunner.gif!. Did a search, but was not able to find anything on this. I will be plugging this into my TV via HDMI. I was wondering if the Displayport -> HDMI adapter that comes with the card will pass sound as well? If not, will a DVI -> HDMI adapter do so? I know that this is the case with my brother's GTX 460.

Thanks in advance!

DVI to HDMI does not do sound. I am not sure about displayport though.

DP -> HDMI works for sound out of the box!

It passes audio w/ the proper dvi adapter.

Yup, my brothers GTX 460 passes sound through DVI without issue. Definitely possible as long as it is implemented by ATI too.

Sound can pass through DVI - HDMI is it's implemented. I know ASUS V2 GTX 460's can do this.
