Displayport-thumbnail.jpg copy-1NVIDIA recently released an update tool to ensure proper DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 support for its GeForce Maxwell and Pascal architecture graphics cards.  NVIDIA states in the release note that without this update, some systems connected to DisplayPort 1.3 or 1.4 monitors could experience blank screens during the boot process until the OS loads, or could prevent the system from completely booting the OS.  In this Pro Tip, let’s walk through the simple update process. 

The DisplayPort 1.4 standard enables higher bandwidth and “visually loss-less” Display Stream Compression (DSC) 1.2 for high resolution and high refresh rate displays required by gaming enthusiasts. Here are the details:


Keep in mind both your GeForce graphics card and monitor must support DisplayPort 1.4 in order to take advantage these improvements.

Step One:  Download the tool from
