Are these monitors useless now with all the GPUs not having DVI?
I have the 1080 TI and does not have DVI, only HDMI and displayport.

I am reading that even these $100+ active displayport to DVI adaptors won't convert 1440p @ 90Hz.
Should only get 60Hz.

Yes you can only get 60hz. i'm kinda in the same boat as I'm going to give this monitor to my dad or use as second monitor so 60hz should be fine for me. I would have to buy this adapter in order to get at least 60hz and that's fine for me. I still love this monitor and it's one of the best monitor I bought. It will always stay in the family and I know my dad will take good care of it as well but I treated myself to a pg279q a while ago and it's awesome. a little bit better for gaming but the Qnix is still good for pretty much anything else.

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to move to a 1080 TI from a 780 GTX don't know how but I've gone from high gfx in StarCraft 2 down to low because it's the 780 can't seem to keep up anymore for some reason.

Anyways, the 1080 TI only has one DVI-D port by the looks of it and I need 3 for the korean monitors.

I have 1 active DP to DVI from acell however, it doesn't behave the best and would rather not need to spend 80$ for another adapter.

Other than replacing all monitors does anyone have a suggestion? I saw there was a way to overdrive the HDMI port to accept 1440 P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALD_7bs669o using a DVI to HDMI adapter.

Your only choice is Active DP to DVI-D connectors. And with them they will only overclock to 75hz.

Im only using 1 screen now after getting my 1080ti.
Was driving 2 fine on my 980ti but it had 2X DVI-D

What about using IGP ports on Skylake/Kaby lake can you use a DVI to HDMI adapter and overdrive it like Nvidia pixel hack?

Also what about replacing the board on the monitors with one that supports more ports? Anything like that? these active adapters are bank 80$ a piece, also it is very flaky when I start a Netflix video it goes all messed up sometimes until I unplug it and plug it back in basically some strange compatibility issues.

I have 3 Korean monitors, one x-star, qnix and a Shimian, and I really don't want to replace them especially since everything out there isn't even as good as these!! Is there a better adapter or any other way of hacking the board to include DP by replacing the IC board on the monitor?

Maybe get replacement controller board for the screen which supports the HDMI. Only does 60hz on that tho.
Get decent quality DP to DVI-D adapter. Yeah its expensive tho.

zazzn 06-18-2017 01:31 AM

Any ideas where these controllers are and how much? I mean the adapter i have cost 85$ and the monitors only 250.

I'd rather get a new 4k monitor if this is the case TBH.

So silly that none of these adapters really work well.

Evga 1080ti SC black is a reference board with a DVI port. That's the card I bought (and on water) to use with my trusty X-Star.
