NVIDIA GeForce 11 series to ditch DVI in favor of VirtualLink?

VideoCardz picked up a rumor at the Asian ChipHell boards that NVIDIA's soon-to-be-released next-generation GeForce cards may no longer have a DVI display output.

While this breaks support with older displays, DVI is no longer a good fit for modern video cards because the standard has a large connector and its bandwith is too small to support the latest high-end displays.

Instead of DVI, the new GeForce cards reportedly feature VirtualLink Type C, the new standard that lets you connect VR headsets using a single cable.
The DVI connectors are certainly a thing of a past, but this should not prevent board partners from making their own cards with DVI connectors installed. At worst you would have to buy an adapter.
Word is also going around that the GeForce 11 series has HDMI 2.1 support.
