Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI) compatibility with Power Mac G5 & Mac Pro

  • January 09, 2008


hen you connect an Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI) to a Power Mac G5 or Mac Pro, you may find that the highest available resolution is 1280 x 800, even though the optimum resolution for the display is 2560 x 1600. The maximum resolution available when this display is connected to a single-link DVI port is 1280 x 800 - you must connect the display to a dual-link DVI port in order to access the higher resolutions available to the display.

If this occurs, make sure that you are using a compatible video card for the display, and are connected to a dual-link DVI port on the card. Compatible video cards must include a dual-link DVI port. Refer to the table below for video cards compatibility:
