Good practical question; Strictly pass-through adapters/ connectors don't adjust/etc the signal, and aren't considered 'active': signals are simply passed through. However, inclusion of the connectors can attenuate the signals, as can increases of cable lengths. So, additional connectors & lengths are to be avoided, and good high quality cables and good ...

It is possible to connect three monitors with one cable, but that needs DisplayPort daisy-chaining. Unfortunately, your monitors are using HDMI, so this solution does not apply here. DisplayPort daisy-chaining needs three monitors that have two DisplayPort ports, ports for both input and output. If you would like to connect your three HDMI monitors with one ...

Not with that monitor, no. Daisy Chain requires support from the monitor to properly pass through a signal and make the second display visible. It requires the monitor to be able to differentiate between data for the current display, as in it supports Multi-Stream Transport (MST), and pass through the signal for the next display. Not all DisplayPort decoders ...

The inexpensive adapters you have use HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C. They basically tell your Mac's Thunderbolt 3 / USB Type-C port to directly output HDMI signals over their high-speed data line pairs. This has no performance impact on your CPU or GPU over any other solutions that pipe your internal GPU's output through that port. You mentioned three ...

This computer also had problems waking from sleep. The solution: Set "source" to "auto." Both problems went away. The down side of this: ...

From HDMI 2.0 on, you get up to four audio streams and two video streams (see Wikipedia), but nothing like the complicated topology management that's possible with DP. If you want to understand the differences, think historically: HDMI originally was DVI for consumer electronics with additional copy protection and a different plug. DisplayPort came a bit ...

Welcome to Super User! Unfortunately, it seems that the R9-380 graphics card has a HDMI version 1.4 port, which does not support 4k@60 Hz. This type of connection can at most support a resolution of 4096x2160@24 Hz. As you noticed, the DisplayPort (version 1.2) on your card is able to handle 4096x2160@60 Hz without a problem, however the version of HDMI ...
