Yep, had a branded DP1.4 cable, should run 4k120+ but could only do 1440p85.
Bought a different brand DP1.2 cable and it runs 1440p165.

Why? Because the DP1.4 was made out of some generic HDMI cable and would not even achieve HDMI2.0 speeds.

Amazon alone is filled with tons of generic no name unknown branded cables.

Club3d cables are expensive and may not be that great either.
