Simple to use, small form-factor converter makes Mini-DisplayPort backwards compatible with your DVI-D single link display
Compliant with DisplayPort 1.1a specifications
This Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter offers active signal conversion, which helps overcome the limitation of some Mini DisplayPort video cards not being able to output a DP++ (multimode) signal
Works with video cards that aren't capable of outputting DP++ (multi-mode) signals
The Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter (single-link) let's you connect your Mini DisplayPort video source (such as any of your MacBook or Microsoft Surface Pro devices with mDP) to a DVI-D display, including televisions and Apple Cinema Display HD, eliminating the expense of having to upgrade to a DisplayPort capable monitor.
Unlike passive video adapters, this Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter offers an active conversion for use with any Mini DisplayPort output - ideal for graphics cards that are not capable of outputting multi-mode DP++ signals (e.g. ATI Eyefinity).
Supporting resolutions up to 1920x1200, this compact device provides a simple solution for adapting PC or Mac Mini-DisplayPort output for DVI monitors, televisions or projectors.
The Mini DP to DVI adapter is compatible with Intel Thunderbolt, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt I/O port
