Cables are a huge snake oil unfortunately. Tons of marketing but most cables are the same, the connectors matter too and their changes may not always be cosmetic only. Especially cables over 2 m can have trouble meeting their specs even for DP1.4 and HDMI2.0 bandwidth.
Conversion adapters are a whole another can of worms.
Eliminate one component after another, there is no other way unless you like guessing.
I believe in that as well. So far, I have eliminated everything except the TV. Different GPU, different HDMI cables. Issue persists. If the DP to HDMI adapter I ordered doesn't provide any benefit, then I will chalk it up to the TV being at fault. Either falsely advertised, or a faulty TV. I think either way, I can reach out to the company I bought it from or the manufacturer directly to see what they offer.
I may also see about getting a beefier cable. I have had good experience with Monoprices line up of HDMI cables in the past. But it could be worth it to try a heavier gauge cable since I do need one longer than 6 feet.

retired the screen, hasn't happened since.
i would get a single frame of woi4tuhinwefds on one half of the screen, randomly. didn't seem to happen in synthetics, but it was hella random.
Thats what I'm experiencing now. It's so random when it happens. I just tried to pull up a game to see if I could catch it in action, but my fingers weren't fast enough to hit the button before it flashed back to normal.
