I recently bought a Fury X that only has Display Ports and an HDMI and I have a monitor that only has DVI (Yamakasi DS270 1440p 60hz). I bought two HDMI to DVI converters but with both cords I had horizontal multi colored bars across the screen, freezes, and then the screen would fade to black. Same results for both my new Fury X and the old card AMD 7870. From the reviews and descriptions both cords are supposed to support at least 1440p. The monitor is fine because I can attach a DVI cord from the old graphics card and there are zero issues.
My question is did I get bad cords or did I buy the wrong cord? If I bought the wrong cord any ideas on what cord I actually need?
Here are the two cords I have already purchased:
Thanks for any help
It appears that your monitor might not support HDMI to DVI adapter cables.
From the following link (under the Product Description section):https://www.amazon.com/YAMAKASI-DS270-IPS-SE-2560x1440/dp/B00E7NG5M8
- Please use DVI-D port only. cannot used with DVI-I or DVI-S. Also cannot be used by port converter. (D-sub, HDMI, DP)
And it appears you need both a dual link DVI cable...this quote from the same page:
DVI output is 2560x1440 resolution, DVI-dual link port required from the Graphic card and DVI-D cable.
If this information is accurate, then those cables will not work with that monitor...except maybe if you drop the resolution to 1920x1080 (aka 1080p).
