Dr. Bott has announced a version of its
bundled with a PC-compatible 4x AGP video card. The company said it’s responding to customer requests by making the card available as an option.
DVIator is an adapter device that enables Apple’s LCD displays equipped with the ADC (Apple Display Connector) to be attached to video cards that use DVI, or Digital Visual Interface. Since ADC combines DVI, power and USB support on one cable, the DVIator breaks out power to an external power supply, enabling the new displays to be used on older computers.
Dr. Bott is offering the DVIator with the ELSA Gladiac 511 — a 32MB PC-compatible video card built around Nvidia GeForce2 MX 400 chipset. The card works with Windows 98, 2000, NT 4.0, and Me.
Dr. Bott notes one problem, however — Apple’s 15-inch and 17-inch ADC-equipped STudio Displays will display standard resolutions correctly with the bundle, however, the brightness level can’t be changed.
Dr. Bott is offering the DVIator bundled with the card for US$289. It is also available separately for $139.
