Zotac announced its newly manufactured GeForce graphics cards will only have high-resolution outputs. The company says it's eliminating the legacy TV output port to make way for HDMI, dual-link DVI and VGA outputs for all its graphics cards.
By eliminating the legacy TV output port, all newly manufactured ZOTAC graphics cards feature HDMI, dual-link DVI and VGA outputs for high-resolution connections to monitors and televisions. ZOTAC GeForce® GTS 250, 9 and 8400GS series graphics cards with HDMI output also have a S/PDIF audio input to route audio from a sound card or onboard high-definition audio for simultaneous audio and video output over a single HDMI cable for simplistic connectivity to the latest displays and audio receivers.

“ZOTAC was the first graphics card manufacturer to include DVI-to-HDMI adapters and S/PDIF audio input throughout its entire lineup in the early days of HDMI connectivity. Now that HDMI is becoming a default standard for monitors and televisions, it was an obvious forwards-looking move,” Mr. Berger said.

It’s time to play with the new HDMI equipped ZOTAC GeForce® graphics cards.

    HDMI doesn't power any current monitor above 1920, so any future card I get is going to need Displayport.

    Stopped using TV out in the 80's Zotac. Might want to move your game up a couple of decades and get with the Displayport and HDMI combo.
