:/ Go buy some monster cables then, they're advertised as the best. /sarcasm At the end of the day, the gauge is going to make the difference.
Monster cable ain't no joke. They have hair clippings from Chuck Noris in them instead of copper.
I think in this case we need a combo of thickness and quality if it is actually going to help. The cable needs to support more bandwidth so being thicker should help, but if the ends are not good or if the shielding is poor the thickness could be wasted.
It remains to be seen if it will even help. It is just really weird how my V-sync'ed fps will lock to 51 when I have my refresh rate at 90Hz. However, the pixel clock is over 400 when doing this so it is just a suspicion of mine if the cable is bottle necking it...duallink DVI isn't typically expected to have a pixel clock over 300...I think 60Hz had me at like 240 or so...can't remember exactly, but it was well under 300. At 67Hz I am at about 260 pixel clock.
(note: if you have an Nvidia GPU there is a patch that lets the driver allow more than 300 pixel clock...I have it linked earlier in the thread.)
I have a new cable on the way as well...I will be sure to post my results. Even if it doesn't help it won't be wasted. I wanted a longer cable anyway.Edited by Vagrant Storm - 1/13/14 at 7:36am
