Displayport vs Mini-Displayport

Is there any difference? Or will they do the same. 
 

For example if i have a displayport to mini displayport cable hooked up to my monitor, I can still do 4k @ 60hz, audio, ethernet, etc?

Yep, just a smaller form factor I believe.

(Same with HDMI, mini HDMI, micro HDMI)

 

Edit: Here's two pictures comparing them. As you can see, they are electronically identical:

 Almost as cool as my temps

Sweet, thanks! Do any monitors use displayport 1.3 yet or is it mainly 1.2 across the board rn?

I don't know of any personally as the only need for it is for 8K or 4K above 60Hz, which as you'd imagine isn't too common at the moment.

Yes. As long as the card outputs DisplayPort 1.2 so you can do 4K @ 60hz.
