The difference between DVI-I and DVI-D connectors on video cards and flat panel monitors.

Some of the video cards that ship with Dell computers have Digital Video Interface (DVI) connectors for connecting a flat panel LCD monitor to the card.

There are currently two prominent types of DVI connectors, DVI-I (Figure 1) and DVI-D (Figure 2).

DVI-D provides a digital only signal, while DVI-I can support digital and analog signals. As of January 2002, Dell-shipped nVidia GeForce3 video cards have DVI-I connectors and the ATI Radeon VE video card has a DVI-D (or dual VGA) connector.

DVI-I is fully compatible with DVI-D; all flat panel monitors that have a DVI-D connector will work fine with DVI-I receptacles on the video cards.

As of January 2002, Dell flat panel monitors have DVI-D connectors and will work fine with both DVI-D and DVI-I video connectors.

Not all graphic adapters with Dual-Link Pin configurations actually support dual-link DVI (Resolutions above 1920x1200) If you need higher resolutions (2560 x 1600 for example) ensure the specifications of your card include dual-Link DVI support.
