Not the 4k@60Hz stated in the product description
30 September 2018
I bought this cable to maximise the display resolution between a PC with a DVI-D Dual link connection and a 4k monitor. The cable's product description states 'The AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI adapter cable meets the latest HDMI standard, which means it considerably expands bandwidth up to 18 Gbps, offers 4K@50/60 (2160p) video resolution (four times more clarity than 1080p/60)'.
However the best resolution I can obtain is 1080p@60Hz.
After spending quite a bit of time investigating why I couldn't get better I established that the maximum resolution it was possible to get out of a DVI-D connection at 60Hz is 2560×1600. On top of that it seems that if a DVI-D connector is converted to HDMI at the other end then resolution is typically limited to 1080p@60Hz. The only way round this is to use an Active adapter, of which there are very few around.
The upshot is that Amazon's item description is incorrect, misleading and the stated performance is impossible to achieve with this product, even if the kit on either end of the cable is capable of it.
However, if you just want a good 1080p@60 DVI to HDMI cable this is a decent enough product.
