Radeon HD 6850 Graphics Converter Help

Discussion created by OL6-TX1000 on Oct 4, 2011


I need a little bit of help with knowing if i can successfuly convert VGA to DVI using my existing graphics card (Radeon HD 6850).

The problem is my current monitor only has DVI or HDMI input and the OS (Solaris) i am trying to display only runs in VGA output.

I am wondering if i was to plug the VGA output into DVI plug on the Radeon HD 6850 GPU, and then use the either the DVI or HDMI slots left-over to plug into the monitor.

Would the GPU function as an adapter, despite the fact that Solaris does not recognise the device?
