So its not a "real" full screen 60 but instead 2, which almost virtually NO detectable middle line.
But in essence it wouldn't be able to go past 61, which is what I would like to see, and full "true" screen.
Displayport 1.2 (which came out in 2009 BTW), supports 4k @60hz. Displayport 1.3 which is coming out later this year, supports 8k @60hz
@30hz or 4k @120hz. You'll also likely find more GPUs supporting it as its an open standard, unlike HDMI, which must be paid royalties every time a manufacturer wants to use it for devices. They likely charge more for 2.0 which may be an indicated by the lack of its use in devices. HDMI will probably get to 4k @120hz in another 4 years
As for the screen splitting, unless I'm mistaken, that's done on the driver side of things, and is unrelated to the connectors.Edited by leafonthewind - 3/30/14 at 7:50am
