Apple's 24" Cinema now connects
to standard DVI ports
Posted Friday, September 18th, 2009, by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist
Many of you want to buy the 24" Apple LED Cinema Display but your Mac Pro's graphics card does not have a Mini DisplayPort. Apple offers adapters that connect a graphics card with a Mini DisplayPort to a Display with a DVI connector but none that connect a DVI connector on your graphics card to a display (like the 24" Apple LED) with a Mini DisplayPort connector. That meant you either had buy the 30" Cinema Display at $1799, an older 20" or 23" Cinema Display, or a third party display with a DVI connector. Now there is at least two solutions.
First, Gefen has announced their DVI to Mini-DisplayPort Converter
This adapter is designed for Mac users who want to use a standard DVI port to connect to the Apple LED Cinema Display (24" flat panel) or any display with a Mini DisplayPort. It supports high definition resolutions at 1920x1200@60 Hz and comes packaged in a small enclosure for easy installation.
Second, there is the Atlona AT-D200 DVI-to-Mni DisplayPort converter box. (SEE THE FULL REVIEW.)
