While I excitedly wait for my Spectrum 4K@144Hz to arrive, I’ve begun making sure I have the appropriate setup to get the most out of it. Which brings me to the question, which cable port will get the most out of the Spectrum 4K@144Hz?
From what I’ve found, both HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 seem to have limitations reaching 144Hz at a 4K. From what I’ve found, HDMI 2.1 only natively supports 120Hz at 4K UHD resolution but with . Similarly, DisplayPort 1.4 only supports 4K up to 120HZ unless you use a DP 1.4 cable with DSC(Display Stream Compression). With DSC you can reach 144Hz at “4K” with compression.
There are many other differences between the two types including differences in color gamut and integrated tech for screen tearing, etc. While other sources have compared the 2 ports, they have contradictory information that’s left me more confused. So I turn to the Eve community.
Between HDMI 2.1 and Display Port 1.4, which one will give you the best access to Spectrums full specs in resolution, refresh rate and color?
