    Active or Passive DP adapter for DZ77BH-55K

    aliatgb

      I am about to purchase several DZ77BH-55K motherboards and plan to use two DVI monitors with them.  This board has a HDMI and Displayport output so I wanted to know if the following configuration would work:

       

      Display Port > DVI (Using a passive adapter)

      HDMI > DVI

       

      Both monitors will be set to a resolution of 1920x1080.

       

      I found this Intel FAQ that say yes, this configuration should work with Passive adapters (albeit with a 3 montior config):

      Question: Is passive dongle supported in 3-display configurations?

      Answer:

      Yes. Passive dongles are supported if the system manufacturer programmed the BIOS to support dual-mode interoperability (DisplayPort > HDMI, DisplayPort > DVI, DisplayPort > VGA).

      Note See display combinations for valid passive dongle configurations based on the connected display.

       

      So does this board have dual mode interoperability enabled in the BIOS?

       

      Thanks,
