    Active HDMI 2.1 Cables Might Be More Common

    8K displays were everywhere at CES this year, which means HDMI 2.1 had to be there to actually drive them. HDMI 2.1 basically existed as a standard and little more in 2018, but the Japanese site 4Gamer took a particularly hard look at the state of HDMI 2.1 at the trade show. Apparently, the...

    Hi All, The sale on Rift has got me thinking about snagging one but I have a few questions. 1. Each card only has 1 x HDMI output but am I right in saying that only the primary card's outputs will work? 2. My main monitor is a 4k TV which only has HDMI inputs. 3. How do I go about connecting...

    10ft/3m USB 3.1 Type C Male to HDMI Male 4K Adapter

    I recently purchased a MacBook for my wife, and realized we needed some cables as the ones we'd used for her old MacBook were all obsolete now.

    How is video sent to the unit?

    Does this use two separate video feeds or does it use the same interleaving trick that 3D televisions use (either double frame rate or interlaced)? And the card has to render the game twice right? Each lens gets it's own "camera" in game? So even 1920x1080, the card it still having to render...

    Is it wise to wait for DP 1.3/HDMI 2.0 monitors?

    I've been wanting to upgrade to a new monitor for a few months now. I'm pretty much ready to jump on the LG 29UM58 ultrawide as the price is right, I won't be able to use the higher 29um68's freesync cos I use Nvidia cards and the 34" versions at 1080p seem like a bad, blurry choice. That...
