    Default What does DVI mean?

    I am bamboozled by jargon.
    On a graphics card what is DVI? and is it a good thing?

    DVI is short for Digital Visual Interface. It is an input for LCD / TFT display panels. Clcik here for more details.

    There is a good explanation of the technology here as well - Digital Visual Interface

    It is a good thing to have on your graphic card, as it means you can use DVI on your LCD monitor if it also has a DVI option. Gives much clearer pictures.

    Very interesting - I did not know before that a modem converts a digital signal into an analogue one - and why !
