Default 10M DisplayPort cable for 4K 60hz - This is what it takes! - 12-09-2016, 02:31 | posts: 248 | Location: Sydney - Australia

This is what it takes to get 4K 60hz over 10M (~33Feet). It works flawlessly.

This cable weighs about 1Kilogram (2.2 Pounds).

Gold plated

Heavy gauge wire multi-shielded and really stiff

$220 Aussie Dollars later...

and a nice zipper bag

Here is the Lindy 10M certified DP 1.2 HBR2 cable compared to a High Quality 5M cable (also Lindy DP 1.2 HBR2) which struggled to sync @ 4K 60hz and a cheap 1.8M cable. Note the difference in thickness and quality.

You get what you pay for - particularly for DisplayPort. I tried the two Lindy high Quality DP 5M cables with a Lindy DP booster and couldn't get better than 4K 30hz. The gold 10M worked first go - no flicker - instant sync @ 4K 60hz.
