Hello all! Hope that you had a great New Year! What is the difference between a DP cable and a HDMI cable? Does the DP cable give higher fps or is it just support for 4K resolution. (my monitor is 1080p)

My specs are:

GTX 1080TI Asus ROG Strix OC

(monitor) S27D590C


PC Specs: Motherboard: H81M S2H   CPU: I7 4790   CPU Cooler: NZXT 240 mm Kraken Series AIO     GPU: Asus Strix ROG 1080 TI OC Edition    PSU: Aerocool Integrator 850W   Storage: 2 1TB HDD And 1 120GB SSD   Case:  NZXT H440 2015 Edition

Future PC  Plans:  MSI Z97 Gaming

Both are the same, up to their maximum limit (which is different depending on the device). If you want to run at a certain resolution/refresh rate combo that is above the limit of HDMI, then you have to use DisplayPort. If not, then they're both the same.
