DisplayPort is one of the best products for connecting a computer to a monitor. It is a highly recommended cable and is easily available in the market.
If we are talking about speed and high display performance, the older version of DisplayPort 1.2 is capable of supporting a 4K quality display with a resolution of 3840×2160 at 60Hz. We can also say that it supports a 1080p quality resolution at 144Hz.
Later, after DisplayPort 1.3 was launched, the cable can support 8K quality display at 60Hz or 4K quality display at 120Hz. The cable is thus highly recommended for gamers and video streamers who can experience the top display graphics on their screen. The GeForce GTX 980 comes with a Display 1.2 which only has a limitation of 4K quality display at 60Hz.
Currently, the latest graphics that are available, starting with NVIDIA and AMD, feature the DisplayPort 1.2 which can support up to 4K display quality at 120Hz. Or 8K display quality at 60Hz.
As we require a compatible monitor to display, therefore the latest generation of games like GTA V, Tomb Raider, Far cry3, etc can support up to 4K display resolution along with ultra gaming settings. Depending upon the game, a single GTX 1080 is a cable for producing an average FPs between thirty-three to sixty-nine. Hence if you enjoy experiencing the top quality games at a4K display quality at 120Hz, you have to put double GTX 1080s in your system.
Displayport 1.4 is now available, offers a maximum bandwidth of 32.4 Gbps and a refresh rate of 25.92 Gbps. Along with this feature, it can also support a 5K quality video display at up to 60Hz, and a 4K quality display at 120Hz. The best quality of this DisplayPort is that it supports both 1080p and 1440p resolution quality at 240Hz. This results in a high-speed gaming feature with a high-quality display without any connectivity issues.
