Default Re: 195.30: same EDID interpreted differently on VGA and DVI connectors! Must be a bu

It is common for monitors to advertise different capabilities depending on the interface used (analog vs. digital, etc.). GPUs also have different hardware limitations depending on the display connector type: the maximum pixel clock of a single-link TMDS encoder is much lower than that of a legacy DAC, for example. To drive high-resolution devices via DVI, you generally need a dual-link connection.
