What The Hell I This Used For On Ati Cards

Recommended Posts

ok I have a x800xt agp video card had it for a year now and it has this connector right next to the molex plug what the hell is it or what does it do. ive looked in the manual and cant find anything and ive spent the last hour on google trying to find out what it is. it looks like a four pin sound card cable plug in but why would I need that I don't have an all in wonder.

You don't need to say hell so much.

 

I always thought it was an alternate power connector. But I could be wrong.

If you card has ViVo, I think you use that bit to put the sound to your Sound card.

 

At first I always though it was a means of connectiong a Front Video IN port to you Card, and use it for ViVo, seeing as front Video ports have the exact plug to fit that socket, even the colour matches.

 

I was then told its for audio...which I still somehow dought, seeing as the Video IN dongle has no audio ports.

i think its for audio but like you said it video in video out i dont see anything in those four words that say audio so why would i need an audio port on my video card?

googled: gigabyte x800xt yellow connector

 

Wondering what that little yellow connector is at the end of the card? Well the mystery is pretty easy to solve. The little yellow connector is not a power connector, or an  audio one for that matter, but rather a video in port which can be used with front case mounted video jacks. The necessary cable is not included however since it is a rather specific function.

 

you want to brush up on your google skills ;)
