Amazon Basics DisplayPort to HDMI cable with gold-plated connectors 1.8 m
About this deal
DisplayPort helps to optimize the refresh rate of many computer monitors, which makes them useful for modern gaming, and so you’ll see DisplayPort connectors on the latest graphics cards for optimal support beyond 4K. As you want from most of your cables and adapters, the ends of the Cable Matters DisplayPort to HDMI cable terminates in gold-plated connectors. These are paired with bare copper conductors, and protected with braid shielding and foil for a generally strong combination of performance and reliability. This cable supports 1080p content, and audio content including 7.1, 5, or 2 channels. That makes it great for using a mirrored display, or configuring a second monitor. But it also means your audio content doesn’t get left out, and you won’t have to worry about running a bunch of extra cables. Again, it’s worth noting this cabling is unidirectional, and moves signals from DP to HDMI, not vice versa.
If you are looking for a cable, you will want to make sure that you grab one of a decent length. If you are planning on hooking up two devices, then you will need to ensure that there is enough cable to extend between the two. To ConcludeDisplayport cables are high performance digital cables used to connect computer monitors, laptops, and other devices to display screens. It supports the transmission of high-resolution video and audio signals, making it a popular choice for connecting devices that require high-quality display output. A display port is always male on the cable and female on the device. All DP cables have the same basic layout and wiring and will support any feature including audio, daisy-chaining, HDR and DSC.

They’re available in 3, 6, 10, and 16-feet. The reason these cables are somewhat shorter is because they’re intended to provide support for 4K content. Naturally, that includes support for HD audio and standard 1080p content, as well as 7.1 audio channels. But make no mistake, these cables are made specifically for people who are looking to stream high bandwidth content. The major difference between both HDMI and DisplayPort is their intended use cases, and there are some speed considerations too. HDMI cables are generally intended for use with consumer electronics such as televisions and video game consoles.
The HDMI format has fairly generous proportions when it comes to length limitations. You can get reasonably strong HDMI signals across 25-feet of cabling. Even pushing out towards 50-feet is sometimes possible, depending on the quality of signal that you’re willing to live with. For example, HDMI connection distance can actually be strung out towards 90-feet, if you’re willing to tolerate 1080p content.
You can only compare up to four products at a time.
This cable provides support for 1080p content played at 60Hz, but won’t support the higher refresh which are ordinarily possible through DP cables. One bright spot is how you can use AMD Eyefinity to connect several monitors, and you’ll need an active cable to support several monitors. From there, you can extend your display, mirror it, or otherwise connect together all your stuff fairly simply.
