Which has best graphics quality?
Display port is theoretically the best, but HDMI is so cheap and widely used i think it has benefits over the rest right now
You mean APPLE display port (tell me if I got it wrong)? I would never buy an apple!! Anyway that would only work on an APPLE monitor so you have to pay 10x the value for the monitor; not worth it!!!
Quality? All that are digital have the same quality, only analog can loose quality since it's...well analog.
And I use Display Port.
Display Port was not invented nor is owned by Apple...
DP and mini-DP is available on most (if not all) high-end GPUs for the past year. My ASUS PA246Q screen also has DP connection, thats over a year old model too.
I think that any digital connection is the same (so DP and HDMI) if you look on wikipedia you can find alot of info.
As someone said, not true at all. And Apple monitors are good monitors, not your avarage cheap TN ones.
Anyway voted DVI as I like those connector. HDMI are way too flimsy.
I don't know what HDMI cables you're using - every HDMI cable I ever owned was solid.
Apple is overpriced, which was my point. And even if you have the port on the graphics card, it's useless unless you also have the port in the monitor.
No no Display Port is universal, like HDMI! just more expensive, just put into google
Ok, thanks for the info; however, I've never owned a monitor which had a displayport input. What kind of monitors have that port?
Dual link dvi and display port would be the two highest bandwidth connections out there.
Any brand HP, Dell, LG, Samsung, etc. basically any brand.
DisplayPort and Dual-Link DVI has largest amount of bandwidth, so I would imagine that those would. HDMI is nice because it rolls a lot of other things other than video into the same connector (multi-channel audio and Ethernet (in v1.4)) but as far as video quality, I would take DVI/DisplayPort any day.
I've never seen one...
I love this forum, so many people here!
DisplayPort also supports any audio, ethernet, USB and maybe more.
There you go
There are monitors with display port for sale out there,just no where near as much as DVI/D-Sub monitors.
I see a tendency to have monitors with HDMI/D-Sub nowadays too.
Same can be said for all the other ports
I'm gonna go with DVI since I guess that also covers dual dvi for very high resolutions.
except that DVI and HDMI are on all of the high quality cards, and most monitors have either HDMI or VGA. Displayport, on the other hand, is less frequent on cards and extremely rare in monitors. Thus, the premise of my statement.
Thanks, but that's on the expensive end for a mere 21" monitor.
Don't double post please, there is an edit button for a reason. Double posting is also against the rules.
Didn't mean to.
I understand, that is why I'm pointing it out. Most people don't mean to but new users don't tend to know the forum rules.
I wouldn't say so, most of modern cards have Display port or mini display port (especially workstation cards where you won't find HDMI). When it comes to monitors, yes it's it's a bit "harder" to find, but definitely not extremely rare.
Pretty much all of the monitors that are somewhat oriented towards business have them, and as far as I've seen pretty much all monitors that are IPS (or similar) have DP (but they do cost a bit more).
On laptops you find them on mobile workstations where it's more common than HDMI.
So I guess that HDMI is more widely used in consumer market (TV's, HTPC, monitors), whereas the display port is used in the business environment (workstations, higher end monitors...).
Computer Hardware, Monitors, LCD Monitors, 1, 2
All of those have at least one display port connection on them.
