I have a Dell P2415Q monitor, it is UHD monitor, which has mini displayport as one of its input sources. I do not have any other outputs with mDP connector, and I want to only use full sized DP cables, and only use a mDP to DP cable adapter for this one mDP connection to monitor. I want it to be on cable (not in a form of solid case adapter) because there is no space for solid case adapter there.
I have found an adapter cable which is branded as Dell and marked with the following id: DAYANBC084, 0YY1FJ / YY1FJ, 0857GN / 857GN.
In the item description I see it is written 'DisplayPort Version 1.1 (Supports up to 3840x2160@30Hz)'. But I need the UHD@60Hz for my monitor.
I am interested, is that information really correct? Can the displayport version specifications be applied to cables themselves? In other words, this one will not work for me? Because I cannot quite understand that. The cable is just a copper wires and it cannot "understand" a specification. It only can be more or less qualitative. And as this one is Dell branded, it should be of good quality.
If I am mistaken, than how do I understand that cable supports 1.2 specification? The other cable adapters I saw had no any mentioning about their supported dp specification.
Additionaly, do I need to bother about having ferrite ring that is presented on some mini displayport to displayport adapter cables?
