I am looking for a new Display Port cable for my Asus ROG SWIFT PG279Q monitor. It has to work at 2560x1440 @ 165Hz and that is only possible with DisplayPort, however not all DP cables support this higher frequency. Can anyone recommend a cable? I want to get my monitor working as best it can.

  • You're asking for a solution to a problem with a product that is still weeks or months away from being released to the market. A as I know there are currently no DisplayPort 1.3 graphics cards available. So even if someone labeled a cable as 1.3 certified you wouldn't be able to verify it currently and you can also not verify if the better 1.2 certified cables like AK-340100-030-S, which is already pretty thick, are sufficient.

  • With DP 1.2, they basically said any cerified DP cable should work I suspect the one in the box should be sufficient May 19 '16 at 15:25
