The Mini DisplayPort® to DVI adapter, model MDP2DVIMM6W, allows you to connect a video source (like any of your MacBook® or Microsoft® Surface ™ Pro devices equipped with Mini DisplayPort) with a DVI monitor or projector, which avoids the need to have to upgrade your monitor to one compatible with Mini DisplayPort.
This adapter cable is 1.8 m long and includes male-to-male connectors, which allows you to connect a Mini DisplayPort source directly to a DVI display without the need for other cables.
Compatible with Intel® Thunderbolt ™ when connected directly to a DisplayPort I / O port via Thunderbolt ™, the adapter supports screen or projector resolutions up to 1920×1200 (WUXGA).
MDP2DVIMM6W is a passive adapter that requires a DisplayPort port (DisplayPort ++), which means that DVI and HDMI signals can also be transferred through the port.
Connecting an existing DVI monitor to a Mini DisplayPort output device (monitor, projector)
Ideal for using your DVI monitor as a secondary display.
