Zotac readying 8800 GT with DisplayPort

by on18 December 2007

Comes with DVI and HDMI adapters

Pictures of an upcoming Geforce 8800 GT card from Zotac have appeared over at iXBT and you might wonder what the big deal here is. Well, the card features a DVI as well as a DisplayPort and a TV-out connector and this is the first 8800 GT we've seen with a DisplayPort connector.

Zotac appears to be supplying a DisplayPort  to DVI as well as a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter with the card to enable it to be used with current monitors or TV's. However, we'd be vary to use these adaptors, as you'll see from the pictures, since the DisplayPort connector is very small and a yank on the cable would most likely damage the connector on the card if used with the DVI adaptor.

Fingers crossed for some retail DisplayPort monitor appearing some time soon so that these kind of cards can be used with something without the need of adaptors.
