ODD DVI port

Recommended Posts

I have an AMD vid card that a mate gave to me to put in my scrap pc and the DVI port hasn't got the cross on it to put a normal DVI cable on it. It looks just like an DVI plug but no line on it do i have to get a difernt cable for it?

wat?

 

Can you take a pic of it? What model is it?

 

If it's a 19XX PRO/whatever it might be the external crossfire connector that they used before they woke up and did something internal.

As per wiki, these are the standard DVI ports... If it isn't one of the below... i suggest it may be as frunj mentions.

Ah, it's a proprietary Dell connector, to which attaches a splitter cable that allows VGA and DVI outputs as per this thread:

Found with a Google search for "ati dvi weird connector"

 

So yeah, you may be able to source the cable from Dell, or just bite the bullet and buy a cheap graphics card.

It's designed to breakout two dvi ports from one connector.

 

I've got the same style of connector on a Dell machine here.
