nvidia 2 NVIDIA Filed Patent For VGA Connector

NVIDIA has filed a US Patent No.: US 6,942,521 B1 named "VGA Connector With
Integral Filter" on 13th September. Interestingly, it is meant to improve the
good old 15 Pin D-Sub connector and we will see which next gen. NVIDIA cards
will use this improved VGA connector but more of the latest cards will just come
with DVI connectors instead. Here are some info regard this patent :

An improved VGA connector that supports enhanced graphics performance by
internally incorporating one or more functions of fusing, filtering, shielding,
and controlling of signal line impedances. The improved VGA connector is
dimensionally interchangeable with many aspects of standard VGA connectors and
use standard pin-outs that mate with mating connectors. Integral DACs can be
included to provide analog inputs.
