“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link,” a valuable lesson in life as well as in your GPU ecosystem. 

While the demand for higher fidelity and performance is causing our customers to seek ever more powerful GPUs and monitors which can offer higher refresh rates, resolution, and color reproduction, the cable that connects the two devices frequently gets ignored.

Here are 3 tips to ensure you get the “right” cable based on “How to Choose a DisplayPort cable and not get a bad one” published by Craig Wiley, Chairman of VESA organization. *

  1. Get the right connectors (avoid using unnecessary adapters)
  2. Get a cable that matches the specifications of your GPU and monitor
  3. Get cables from a reputable vendor

A poor-quality cable may cause unnecessary headaches such as interference and loss of signal, and a cable that does not match the required specifications of your GPU could prevent you from extracting the maximum performance out of your graphics investment.
