I've emailed Cable Matters but I do not think they will be able to offer a solution. 

 

I have found that L-COM has a VESA certified 5m cable. Their website only states a resolution of 1080. I called and they are looking into see if that cable could actually support 2560x1440@144hz. 

 

Is anyone able to use a 5m/15foot cable with these monitors?!

 

UPDATE:

 

Turns out Cable Matters can't help and the L-COM is in fact only capable of 1080. I've sent DisplayPort.org an emial, but I didn't get a response back - not holding my breath. 

 

I wish I could find a cable that works.

Did you try Asus support?
I'm sure many others have asked the same question

I am trying to establish if it is a video card or screen (or combination) as both are new but it is same via iGPU and 1080GTX so it may point to the screen not the card.

Anyway does anyone have experienced this with his screen? The easiest to spot it is to open paint with white backdrop. It should be white not pinkish. You can put one edge of printer paper against the white in paint app. They should be of same "type", pinkish tint will be easy to recognize with this comparison (however it has to be done in natural lighting).

Cheers

Have you checked the image settings in the on screen menu?

Thanks for the replay.

I have checked the settings. Not much there. It is true for all temperature profiles, both built in and custom (with custom I can of course make it greenish or blueish instead of redish but there is no way to calibrate white to be white as when it is supposed to be white it has red tint...).

Hello everyone,

As of yesterday I am an owner of the ASUS ROG Swift PG2790. However I am looking for a longer displayport cable. I bought a DP 1.2 cable with 3 metres length, however it is only working and displaying 24hz, so I guess the cable is pretty bad.

Anyone know which cable is suitable for the job (1440 @ 165hz) ?

Thanks!
