I just purchased this cable: DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 Cable M/M 2m/6.56ft.
My concern is that is my monitor ACer XB271Hu is compatible with the mention cable? My monitor has a 1.2 dp port with hbr2 speed And as i saw the cable is 1.4 with hbr3 speed and 20pin.Is the 20th is connected? I mean it doesn’t deliver any power in it?What I have read on the other forums that if 20th pin is connected it can cause problem either in the monitor either in the computer(VGA). Please answer for me that am I able to use this cable safely with my monitor without any problem? Or do you recommend to use the cable out of the monitor box?
I just wanted to change it for the premium cable to get most of out my monitor.
Thanks for your replies.
