HDMI or DP for RTX2070

Hey everyone,

Wanted to know what port preference people have connecting to their spectrum? Should I use HDMI or DP? I have an RTX2070. Obvs want the best throughput with the least issues!

Let me know.

Absolutely DP.

The 2070 only supports HDMI 2.0b, which is limited to about 18Gbps video bandwidth and no support for DSC. That places some big limitations on the video modes possible, and there’s no way to get 4K @ 144Hz HDR. You won’t be able to get more than 4K @ 60Hz without HDR.

The 2070 supports DP 1.4, which has a bandwidth limit of 25.92Gbps. It also has DSC support so you’re able to push even more data down that pipe. It’s perfectly capably of supporting 4K @ 144Hz (with or without HDR), and if you’re playing older games, it’s certainly possible to hit those frame rates.
