Both support 4K 60HZ all though on most 4K tvs HDMI 2 is much more common on TV's than DP. All modern gpus have a DP connection while most don't have HDMI 2 support. Most monitors that are 4K support displayport.


An AMD cpu has no place in a solely gaming build, end of.

I3 4150, Intel HD graphics, corsair CX750M, 4gb ram, Asus H81M-E, corsair 230T, Intel stock cooler WD Green 2TB Gigabyte 550TI

Why you shouldn't trust Gpu or Cpu boss Click on this I dare you!

Pretty sure that DP would be better as it supports FreeSync/G-Sync.


Any unknown button should be pressed even number of times.

If you're running a TV, naturally you want HDMI as it will automatically transfer sound as well.

 

On a monitor however, you're more likely to find Displayport instead.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I would go with HDMI.

 

Reasons:

- Cables are cheaper and you can get a long one for much less the Displayport

- Displayport tends to lose the signal as soon as you move the cable, atleast mine does.

- Displayport cables are a pain in the ass to unplug, expecially the one on the monitor.


Open your eyes and break your chains. Console peasantry is just a state of mind.

They are both the same in terms of end results.

However, DisplayPort has no royalty fees, so they should be sold cheaper than HDMI 2.0 cable. (now if the retailer decides to maximize profits, I can't help you there).

DisplayPort has a latch system to hold properly and in place, so that if the cable move as you move the monitor, the plug won't fall out. This continue the tradition with VGA, and DVI of properly holding your cable. If you have a fully adjustable monitor stand, this is a must.

But in terms of image quality and sound, both sends 0's and 1's.. you won't have any 2's inside.

DisplayPort 1.2 has 20% higher maximum data throughput than HDMI 2.0, but if you're at 4K 60Hz then you're within the limits of both of them so you're not using the extra anyway. DisplayPort can go beyond 4K 60Hz (to about 75Hz) if your monitor supports it, but none do so far.
