I'll start with VGA, which is, in my opinion, a "standard". VGA is an analog signal. This basically means that the quality will not be as great as cables that make use of digital signals, especially at high resolutions. The problem with analog is that noise often distorts the signal and the quality ends up not being as good. So in terms of quality, go for ...

I found something! After looking for a few months, I came across this press release for the Aten 2-Port USB DisplayPort KVM Switch that specifically mentions support for displayport resolutions up to 4096x2160 @60Hz. I found it for sale on newegg and Amazon, and it looks like it's been out for while, but both sites only listed support for UHD resolution (...

There several differences between each cable. Display port supports 4k at high fps. HDMI can do 4k but only at 30 fps. The one benefit of using HDMI is that it can carry audio when VGA and DVI do not. DVI in single link can only do 1080p when in dual link can carry a higher resolution. There are several other differences also which you can read about here.If ...

Thanks for this BTW. I had a similar situation: DisplayPort ports on computers, DisplayPort switch, DisplayPort monitor. And of course, the windows jumping around every time I switched the monitor. I tried and tried to find a pass-through EDID adapter for DP to no avail. All I could find were headless plugs meant to fool some server's GPU that it was ...

It is true, DP is a little better (e.g., it supports a higher refresh rate); however, regardless of which one you end up going with, the differences between DisplayPort and HDMI are not very major. Unless you have some technical reasons why one would be preferred over another (e.g. you're running several of these screens, which would overload the CPU, and ...

Take a look at the ATEN CS1922/1924. Also there are "m" models that have integrated MST hubs that split the video into a DP 1.2 port and an HDMI port.

I'm not really familiar with why this is and what specifically is lacking, but in the official spec sheet, this is a difference between the two. The UX430UQ lists: 1 x Type-C™ USB 3.1 Gen 1 with support for external display While the UX433FN lists: 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ (up to 10Gbps) An external USB Graphics Card (something like this) is certainly a ...

Get a passive Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable, like this one As SiXandSeven8ths mentioned, DisplayPort++ (also known as Dual Mode) is a technology that allows DisplayPort to put out another signal for use with passive adapters. While limited because of this unidirectionality, it's an incredibly cheap, easy, and effective solution for what you're trying to do....

Chaining worked, but I had to check with the manufacturer for model numbers and to confirm it would work. Their tech team kindly tested it for me, to check that the HDMI EDID adapter would work behind a DP to HDMI adapter, and told me the exact parts they had used to make it work. The parts I used were from Lindy, and were a 41068 DP1.2 to HDMI 4k 60Hz ...

TL;DR: Active cables, choose a length. Normal DisplayPort (passive) cables cap out at 3 meters. These cables are basically just bundles of copper with connectors at each end. However, you can get more expensive active cables that use electronics built into the cable to extend the range. These cap out at 33 meters, though the longest I could find for sale ...

While there are DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual Link dongles, they appear to be quite expensive and require USB Power to function correctly. This dongle from StarTech should support a DisplayPort input and convert to Dual Link DVI-D, which is needed for 144Hz at 1080p. Note that the cheaper dongles available for DP to DVI are either Single Link or do not have ...

I know this may be a little late, but I do know of one potential option. I couldn't find an adapter like what you describe (I was looking for the DisplayPort equivalent of this), but they do make HDMI source switchers with automatic input select, for example this one from A-Tech: It has a select button but also will automatically select inputs if only one ...
