According to Discreet documentation, SGI did away with the requirement for a DM5 to require a DCD in Tezro.

Instead they opted for a DVI Splitter. This does NOT mean you cannot use a DCD, it just means there is an alternative.

That’s still a frightening amount of additional equipment that’s needed!

Interestingly, this implies that both pipes of a DCD equipped Discreet system have identical display output.

After all, that's what the Geffen box does: it duplicates one DVI input to two DVI outputs.

When I'm not running dual channel mode, I can plug the monitor into any of the outputs and I get the same image.
