    From what I remember, dual-link adapters generally require extra power and are expensive. Dual-link DVI has more pins at a lower signalling rate than Displayport, so it needs a fair bit of work to convert; whereas most Displayport sources can just output HDMI/DVI single-link if you wire the adapter up right.

    The one example I can find of a proper dual-link adapter is the Startach one. There are some others that advertise it. but may or may not work - if you look at the reviews, it seems to work for some people and not for others. Not sure how nice amazon is with returns - it might be worth trying something like that if you can return it if it doesn't measure up.
