Single-Link DVI (or Single-Link TMDS) and Max. Resolution

  1. OK, I keep reading different things. What is the maximum DVI resolution that a single-link TMDS transmitter can output? Is it 1920x1080 or 1920x1200? I seem to see both crop up. Thanks for any help in this matter. And just to clarify, I know that the analog-out on the DVI-I ports is higher, usually something like 2048x1536, but I am not interested in that, just the DVI output for a flat panel accepting DVI input.

    What Lcd or projector do you plan to use?
    And what is the native res/mhz?

    It all depends on the Monitor/projector and the capabilties of the video processor:
    * HDTV (1920 × 1080)
    * UXGA (1600 × 1200)
    * WUXGA (1920 x 1200)
    * SXGA (1280 × 1024)

    1920*1200 is the biggest "standard" resolution you can push through a single link at 60Hz with 24 bits per pixel. The bandwidth is really ~ 2.75 MPixels per second.

    See the official DVI spec if you insist on all the gory details.
