Would this work to do HDMI to Dual Link DVI and drive a 2560x1440 monitor?

Using this Moshi adapter (HDMI 1.4 compliant, which means it should be able to carry the resolution) and something like the Belkin DVI-D to HDMI Dual-Link Adapter?

  • No, it will not.

    Many (or all) HDMI to Dual Link DVI-D adapters do not actually support Dual Link signals. The Dual Link DVI-D connector of those adapters is either male or female. A female connector has a receptacle that accepts a Dual Link male cable (more pins than Single Link cable). A male connector has all the pins of a Dual Link cable. But in either case, only the Single Link signal is passed (because HDMI is Single Link). Those adapters don't do any conversion at all.

    You need an Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter. You can tell it's a real Dual-Link adapter because it requires extra power which it gets using a USB connection.
