There is something bothering me lately About how to connect a future 4k monitor using high speed hdmi cable with Ethernet and enjoying 60hz.
my GPU is Radeon™ R9 280X GAMING 3G which has 2 displayports 1.2, and one hdmi 1.4a . the hdmi can give me 4k but on 30hz only while the DP can give 60hz.
I’m considering a 40′ 4k tv, with hdmi 2.0 input.
The problem is that I already planted an HDMI cable in the wall so display port is not an option now.
what can I do to gain the 60hz? is it possible to bring a DP 1.2 adapters to HDMI such as http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/displayport-12-to-hdmi-20-uhd-active-adapter.html ? will it work the same? and my HDMI cable Is 26ft long, will it be an issue?
