    Two DP ports stopped working on my RTX 4090

    I've just got back from an evening out to find that two of the DP ports on my Zotac Gaming RTX 4090 have stopped working. The bottom-most DisplayPort and the HDMI port still work, but the top two do not. It's late and I really don't need the hassle right now. I've tried the basics of switching...

    27GP950 - cable choice

    Hi, I've just purchased an LG 27GP950 monitor. I have a 3070ti graphics card, so HDMI 2.1 capable. It has 3 HDMI ports & 3 x Displayport. I have 2 monitors to connect (the LG 27GP950 - 4K @ 120HZ + a 2nd cheaper monitor). Should I connect them via HDMI or Displayport, for best picture &...

    RTX 3090 FE - Displayport ports too close for fibre connectors.

    I've just found out the hard way that the Displayport ports on my RTX 3090 FE are slightly closer together than on the 2080Ti. This should not surprise me as on the latter they were spread across both slots, but it means that I can't plug three of my fibre-optic DP cables into the card. I have...

    HDMI Laptop to no HDMI monitor adapter advice

    Hi I have got a new laptop from work, and the only ports for connecting to a monitor are mini displayport and HDMI. Unfortunately my monitors only have VGA and DVI ports, so connecting my laptop to a monitor isn't straightforward. I've had a look around, and there is a PLETHORA of options. Does...

    Dual Monitor display port problems... while trying to work

    Hello OC, Have no idea how to remedy this but it seems like it should be an easy fix. I recently bought a VESA mount for my main monitor while also using a tablet for work. Unfortunately the mount only allows room for the HDMI. It once was DisplayPort but now is using a HDMI to DisplayPort...

    Razer Blade 15" Advanced QHD - RTX 3080

    Hey guys, I've done a lot of research and think I am fine, but want to pick the brains of this community as Razer forums seem less than helpful. If anyone has a Razer Blade 15" Advanced (2020) with RTX 2080 Super etc, then that would be useful. I've just placed a pre-order for Razer Blade 15"...

    Hi I am looking at getting a Samsung Odyssey G7 to connect to my laptop for gaming. I have a RTX 2080 Super, and it has HDMI and Mini Displayport. I understand that to exploit the full 240hz refresh rates on the monitor, i'll need to use the Displayport rather than HDMI so I'll need a MiniDP...

    Spec me a secondary non-gaming graphics card

    I'm thinking about using the second Displayport connection on my Acer Nitro. But my RTX 2080 Ti only has 3 DP ports. That means I need an extra DP output for my Dell 4k. I do have a Maxwell Titan X and a 780 Ti available but this is a non-gaming display and both cards are power-hungry. So I'm...

    Fibre-optic DP 1.4 video cable prices coming down

    Earlier this year I paid £180 for each of three 10m fibre-optic Displayport 1.4 cables. I now find that they're now available for £80. This is competitive with high-end copper cables. (OCUK don't sell these, so not competitor links.) I can thoroughly recommend fibre-optic cables, and hope they...

    5m DisplayPort cable @ 1440p 144hz

    Hello I'm looking for a DisplayPort cable that can support a monitor with 1440p @ 144hz. I saw on another forum that you need at least DisplayPort 1.2. The monitor I'm planning to buy has a DisplayPort 1.2 port on the back. I don't know if it's possible to transfer this much data over 5m. Would...

    How can I stress test a video cable?

    I'm loving my new Acer Nitro and fibre-optic video cable, but I'm wondering how I can stress test my video cables and get quantifiable results, and I'm especially interested in comparing the fibre cable with my copper cables. All I can really see right now is that it works and I don't get...

    Cheap long Displayport 1.4 cables?

    Is there a good source of cheap long Displayport 1.4 cables? I really don't fancy paying the $298 these people charge for a 5m cable. I'm assuming there's a cheap Chinese alternative, right?

    Hi, I'm looking for a little help with Freesync. I've recently switched from my NVidia 1080 to a Vega 64 so that I could take advantage of the freesync on my LG 43UD79-B 43" 3840x2160 IPS FREESYNC monitor. I bought the monitor because of the size and open standard that is freesync...

    Hello everyone, I recently got a new PC with the lovely GTX 1080Ti in it, however it seems that it does not support 144hz?

Weirdly the DP...
