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.
At first I was going for a CLUB3D, then I saw one from "KabelDirekt", had all good reviews with 2k 144hz, bought it.
