The 1.83m active Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter cable (model MDP2DVIMM6BS) allows you to directly connect a Mini DisplayPort video source (like any of your MacBook® or Microsoft® Surface ™ Pro devices equipped with Mini DisplayPort) to a monitor or projector DVI, which avoids having to buy additional adapters.
For guaranteed compatibility with virtually any Mini DisplayPort output, the active Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter supports multimode (DP ++) as well as single-mode DisplayPort signals. Unlike passive adapters, this ensures that the MDP2DVIMM6BS adapter can be used even with graphics cards with no DP ++ multimode output signal available, such as ATI® Eyefinity cards.
Compatible with Intel® Thunderbolt ™ when connected directly to a DisplayPort I / O port via Thunderbolt ™, the adapter supports resolutions up to 1920×1200.
Use with single-mode Mini DisplayPort video outputs that cannot output DP ++ multimode signal, as in ATI® Eyefinity video cards.
Direct connection of an existing DVI device (monitor, projector) to a Mini DisplayPort output device
Ideal for using your DVI monitor as a secondary display.
