HDMI vs DVI Connection for Phot Work?
« on: October 07, 2020, 09:26:09 am »

A friend has just bought a new display for his photo work.  It appears that the cable included is HDMI and a DVI cable is optional.  Since I've never used an HDMI cable for such a connection I cannot give him as much information as I would like to do.  Therefore I'd like to receive some opinions concerning this issue.  Perhaps not an issue at all, but that's the information I need.

Any and all replies would be much appreciated  ;D

I've never encountered any difficulties using HDMI for high resolution photo displays.  You may want to read the Wikipedia entry, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI, particularly the "Compatibility with DVI" section.

Lots of new video cards only have Display Port and HDMI connections.  The last two NVIDIA cards I used in builds were that way.

What is the difference between the two? I'd like to know.
