Does anyone know of a graphics card that has a hdmi output?
There isn't one. And don't bother waiting for one to appear either.
i would strongly disagree, with high def forming the future and htpc becoming very popular we will see hdmi cards in the not so distant future. i know nvidia/ati dont have any in the pipeline yet but we will see them within 2 years id say.
do remember that the digital dvi connection like the 2 on my 6800 does give an excellent picture from dvi-hdmi input on hdtv's. i think the only thing it lacks is it doesnt carry the 5.1 audio signal like hdmi will, and therefore a hdmi card would have to be a contribution from say creative/nvidia together.
WHy HDMI when HDMI is just DVi-D with SOUND....which you wont get from GFX card!!!!!
There are loads of good DVi-D card that support HD outputs (and more HDMI standard is too limiting or outputs for PC use) out there
the reason i wanted one is because i have a graphics card that supports HD res's and am using a DVI to HDMI cable and i am getting small abnormalities in picture.
i have been told this is because my screen was never intended for connecting to a computer ( via dvi - hdmi ) so i wanted to see if there was an aldernative than having to buy a new cable ( £75~£100 ) i am also assuming that i can use the dvi to vga converter that came with my graphics card other wise i will have to get another one.
also it does mean taking the screen off the wall yet again and thats a pain in the ass....
thanks for the replys
thats because the PLasmas HDMI input is only designed for spoecific inputs, you need to get a GFX card that can match them, are you using latest drivers? POwerstrip?
