I ordered one and will get it in like 4 or 5 days:/ So I have some waiting. But DP to DP should be able to do 144 hz from what Asus told me.
Remember though, unless the adapter is dual-link and ACTIVE (has a usb connection as well to power it) it will not work for more than 60Hz.
DP 1.1 will work for 144Hz?
Edit: This is what freaks me out about DP 1.1 vs 1.2 "DisplayPort version 1.2 was approved on December 22, 2009. The most significant improvement of the new version is the doubling of the effective bandwidth to 17.28 Gbit/s, which allows increased resolutions, higher refresh rates, and greater color depth
. Other improvements include multiple independent video streams (daisy-chain connection with multiple monitors), facilities for stereoscopic 3D, increased AUX channel bandwidth (from 1 Mbit/s to 720 Mbit/s)" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort
I found one that says it is 1.2. I think I'll order it tomorrow morning.
Edit 2: Ok, 1.1 can do 120Hz! That is a relief. http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=974222
I wonder if I should go for 1.2 so I can do some future daisy chaining though...
