Lenovo ADD2 DVI-I PCI-e Video Monitor Connector Adapter - Overview

ADD2 DVI-I Monitor Connection Adapter

Features and specifications

The Lenovo ADD2 DVI-I PCI-e Monitor Connector Adapter (73P2516) uses the on-board (integrated) Intel video subsystem allowing users to attach a second monitor to their small form factor, desktop, or tower system. The system has a monitor connected to its VGA/DVI monitor connector and with a 2nd monitor attached to the DVI Connection Adapter. The DVI Connection adapter is not a graphics adapter with a graphics chip or graphics memory. The DVI Video Connection adapter is also know as an ADD2 (Advanced Digital Display 2) adapter.

The DVI Connection Adapter is supported in small form factor, desktop, or tower systems that have an Intel video subsystem. Intel subsystems include 915G, 915GV, 945G, 945Gc, 945GZ, 946GZ, G31, G33, Q35, Q963 and Q965. The Intel subsystem determines if the DVI Connection adapter operates in dual-independent display mode or clone mode. Dual-independent display mode allows users to "stretch" or "extend" the workspace across two monitors. Each monitor can display a separate image or PC application. Clone mode displays the same image on both monitors (the monitor attached to the PC system and the monitor attached to the DVI Connection Adapter).

  • Intel 915G, 945G, G31, Q35, Q963 and Q965 support Dual Independent Display Mode and Clone mode.
  • Intel 915GV, 945Gc, 945GZ, 946GZ and G33 support Clone mode only.

DVI-I Connection Adapter highlights:

  • Allow users to attach a 2nd monitor to their small form factor, desktop or tower system
  • PCI Express x16 lane support
  • Low-profile adapter with a fitted full-height bracket
  • Low-profile bracket is included
