Looking to buy DVI Cables?
If you're looking to hook up an older computer to a more modern display, you definitely need to check out our DVI cable category! DVI, or Digital Visual Interface, is a type of cable that's commonly used to transmit high-quality digital video signals between a computer and a display device, such as a monitor or a TV. With its 24 pins, DVI provides a clearer and sharper image than the older VGA cable standard.
Types of DVI cables
Our sellers' DVI cables come in various types including DVI-D (digital only), DVI-A (analogue only), and DVI-I (integrated analogue and digital). DVI-D cables are typically used for digital-to-digital connections, while DVI-A cables are used for analogue-to-analogue connections. DVI-I cables can be used for both digital and analogue connections, making them a versatile option for many different applications. This is very different from HDMI cables – since they only carry digital signals, they're not compatible with old analogue technology.
If you want your display device to put out high resolution images, make sure to check whether the cable you want to buy has single- or double-link connectors. Single-link connectors have fewer pins and are capable of transmitting lower resolutions, while dual-link connectors have more pins and are capable of transmitting higher resolutions. For example, a dual-link DVI cable is capable of transmitting resolutions up to 2560x1600 pixels, while a single-link cable is limited to 1920x1200 pixels.
You should also pay attention to how long the cable is. Obviously you'll want a cable that can reach from one end of your setup to the other. If you're not sure exactly how long your cable should be, buy one that's longer than you think. Thankfully, our sellers offer DVI cables that are a metre or so long to ones 5 metres or longer.
It may be that the devices you're trying to link with a cable don't have the same port. There's nothing more frustrating than learning your PC has a DVI connection but your TV doesn't. Luckily, our sellers have a solution: Adapter cables! These have one type of port at one end and a different port at the other. Some of the most popular are DVI to HDMI cables and DVI to VGA cables.
