Product ID: DP2DVI2MM3
This 3-foot DisplayPort™ to DVI-D adapter cable lets you connect your DisplayPort (DP) equipped Ultrabook™, laptop or desktop computer to a DVI monitor or projector with no additional adapters or cables required. The passive adapter supports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 (WUXGA), perfect for high-resolution applications.
For the simplest and most discreet installation, this DP to DVI-D adapter connects directly from your DisplayPort video source to the DVI port on your display. It doesn't need a power source, unlike some converter dongles that require active power and separate bulky video cabling.
With this DP to DVI cable, you can bridge the gap between old and new technologies by converting your existing DVI display to work with your DP video source.
Upgrading every component in your A/V setup can be costly and time consuming. This cost-effective adapter lets you save the expense and hassle of buying a new display, by ensuring your existing DVI display will work with your DisplayPort equipment.
This 3 ft. adapter cable delivers a compact connection that eliminates excess to ensure a tidy, professional installation. For longer installations, we also offer a 6 ft DP to DVI cable (DP2DVIMM6), enabling you to choose the right cable length for your custom installation needs.
The DP2DVI2MM3 is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

When you convert video from a source that uses DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI (for example, a computer to a monitor), you will need to consider the difference between passive and active adapters.
If the source supports dual-mode DisplayPort (also known as DP++), then you can use a passive adapter because the source can perform the conversion. If the source does not support DP++, then you need to use an active converter, which includes additional chips to perform the conversion.
Thunderbolt ports support DP++ natively. To run multiple monitors from the same computer, refer to the Active Adapters section below.
Passive adapters are less expensive since they do not need to include additional chips. A quick way to check whether you can use a passive adapter is to see if the DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort source has the DP++ symbol above it. The symbol is a D with a P inside of it, with two + signs to the left, one on top of the other.
Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter, regardless of whether the source supports DP++. This means that active adapters are more expensive than passive adapters.
If you want to use multiple monitors with the same computer, you should use an active adapter because some video cards cannot run the maximum number of monitors while using DP++. This is especially true if the computer has more than one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connection. Check with your video card manufacturer to confirm which type of adapter you need for the setup that you would like to run.
Note: You should use passive adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, except when you are converting from DisplayPort to VGA, since that type of conversion requires active adapters. For more information on using adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.
If you experience issues when you connect passive video signal adapters to the Surface Dock, Microsoft recommends that you use active video signal converters instead. StarTech.com offers an active video signal converter for DVI monitors (MDP2DVIS) and for HDMI monitors (MDP2HD4KS).
Note: This issue does not apply to the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station.
