Does NOT work with 1440p 165hz g-sync.
Reviewed in India on 14 August 2019
Finally brought the inicio ivanky braided cable. Excellent cable.
Please don't buy this for 144hz or more. will give problems very soon.
TLDR: Know your TV/Monitor’s Refresh rate and res before buying this cable. Bad quality Cable even for the price, Cannot be used with High Refresh rate.
You don’t need expensive digital cables! They say. That’s stupid.
People say that because they think Digital data transmission has nothing to do with electrical conductivity.
Anyways, This Cable is a good example of why you should invest in a Expensive cable from a good brand. Especially DP and HDMI. Any cable for that matter.
Reason?. The switching frequency.
Modern versions of data standards like DP and HDMI has an ever growing bandwidth requirement, but sadly the electrical conductivity of metals remain the same.
This large bandwidth requires the 1s and 0s to switch at break neck speed. The quality of Copper, the connectors, the shielding, contacts everything plays a role. And decides the following:
1. How long the cable will last (Typ a good DP cable will last upto 5 Years, bad cable 6 months to 2yrs)
2. Capability to use with later equipment (like 4K+ TVs, needs much higher switching for that bandwidth).
3. Connection Issues. (Cable might not work during a reconnection).
Why I gave only 2 stars
It worked. But I can only use half of my monitor’s refresh rate with this cable.
And I had connection issues too.
I used it for an Asus PG279Q Monitor capable of 165 Hz at 2K res.
When I get it working, I get only 85 Hz.
