DisplayPort Daisey Chains, and Gaming monitors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Now, I've been looking for a new monitor for some time, and really have only had two requirements: It needs to support Daisey-chaining Displayport, and needs to be a 'gaming' monitor (>=1080p, <5ms, possibly G-Sync, etc). Its been a while now, and yet no one seems to be releasing anything along those lines.

Am I missing some limitation of DisplayPort when it comes to Daisey chains? Is 2-3 gaming monitors running off a single DP line just something that cannot be, or are the OEMs just not making them (for some reason)?

The amount of monitors (depending on their resolutions and refresh rate) for a daisy chain is limited by the bandwidth of the DisplayPort cable and the monitor's built in Multi-Stream Transport Hub. Also some graphics cards have issues with MST implementation necessary for Daisy Chaining.

I mean, I get that. But you still barely find any monitors that support daisy chaining, and specifically no gaming monitors. But none of those reasons seems like they are insurmountable.

Mainly because the "Gaming" monitor scalars are more fine tuned for gaming like response time, refresh rate, and anti-ghosting. Where as a content creation/desktop publishing/engineering/Graphic Desgin type monitor the scalars focus more on color accuracy/reproduction that will allow for Daisy Chaining with built in multi-stream transport.
