HDMI 2.0 is necessary if you want 4K 60Hz over HDMI, though DisplayPort has been capable of that for many years now. There are several displays with HDMI 2.0, but you generally don't find it on monitors when they don't need it for full resolution, because it does have a higher royalty fee for usage than older versions.
DisplayPort 1.2's maximum bandwidth is 20% higher than HDMI 2.0's, but 2560x1440 at 60Hz doesn't come close to the maximum of either one.Yes, DP MST is the official name of the daisy-chaining feature, the MST port is your output port for chaining to the next monitor.No, the HDMI port is version 1.4a.HDMI 2.0 is not required for 2560x1440 at 60Hz, HDMI 1.4a can provide that capability just fine.
Yes, in general I don't recommend having different resolution monitors together. Yes, you could use HDMI for the third 1440p monitor if you had triple 1440p.
1440p is worth it for coding in my opinion. You can run a 1440p monitor at 60Hz with HDMI, yes. It'd be better to look for a 970 with triple DP ports if possible though.There is a price jump to 1440p but it's not nearly as much as it used to be. The Dell U2515H is a pretty cost effective option if you don't mind the 25" size over the other 27" options.
No, you can only chain up to two 1440p monitors on a single DP 1.2 port.The maximum is four 1080p monitors or equivalent. A 1440p monitor is worth roughly two 1080p monitors, and a 4K monitor is worth four 1080p monitors. So you can have:4x 1080p2x 1080p + 1x 1440p2x 1440p1x 4K
4096x2160 is the max resolution of DP 1.2. Dual-Link DVI officially maxes out at 2560x1600 I believe.A 4K monitor will consume an entire DisplayPort link if operated at 60Hz. You won't be able to chain any monitors off a 4K one if that's the case. If you want additional monitors, whether more 4K monitors or multiple 1080p monitors chained together, they'll have to be attached to a second DP output on the graphics card.
Yes, 3x 1080p will work.You don't really "lose res" with multiple monitors. What he means is the maximum resolution possible on each monitor goes down when you want more monitors.The whole link can only handle a certain amount of data in total. Higher resolutions require more data, so if you have higher resolution monitor, you won't be able to chain as many together because they'll fill up the "total data limit" more quickly. A 1080p 60Hz monitor only takes up about a...
You can use the Dell U2414H or U2415. DisplayPort 1.2 allows for up to four 1920x1200/1080 or two 2560x1440 displays chained off a single port. You can use the U2715H but you will only be able to chain up to two of them. The 4K monitors (P2715Q and P2415Q) support daisy chaining but you would have to lower the resolution or frequency to use it, DP 1.2 only has enough bandwidth for a single 4K monitor at 60Hz. The P2714H as listed above actually does not support...
Should be possible. That's exactly what I do with my monitor (a U2414H).
It has to be done on the GPU side so I'd assume they just keep the last frame buffered and resend it if a new frame isn't ready by the time the monitor needs to refresh again. It will take some extra memory capacity, but VRAM usage isn't all from buffering frames, which is why people shouldn't use the term "frame buffer" when referring to how much VRAM a card has; most of it is actually used for textures and other game data. A single frame, even at resolutions like 4K or...
