DisplayPort is a new digital display interface standard put forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). It defines a digital audio/video interconnect intended to be used between computer and display monitors, or computers and home theater systems. Similar to HDMI, in that it supports both Digital Video/Audio signals, DisplayPort is geared more toward the computer market, where HDMI dominates the Home Theater market. Tripp Lite's DisplayPort cables support a maximum bandwidth of 10.8Gbps, as well as DPCP (DisplayPort Content Protection), HDCP, and resolutions up to 1080p. To achieve maximum performance, a signal booster such as the Tripp Lite B121-000 must be used with this cable.

The plastic clips feel kind of cheap but it holds on fine and the cable seems real solid. I'm OK with the plastic clips though since it probably helps keep the cost down. The important thing is the quality of the wires. I was worried the 10 ft. length wouldn't handle the 2560x1600 resolution of my Dell U3011 monitor. I'm happy to report I haven't noticed any pixilation or tearing. I can run Heaven 11 benchmark at 60FPS without issue.
They say they only do 2560 x 1600 on their website/packaging. I contacted the manufacture prior to ordering them. They assured me they are 1.2 and therefor should do 3840 x 2160. When I plugged in the cable the highest resolution that came up was 2560 x 1600. I added a custom resolution and typed in 3840 x 2160 this is running at 60hz. It works in 32 bit color depth they also look the same at 16 bit color. At 15 meters/50 feet the monitors look the same as using a 2 meter cable. I am not using a powered extender as it says you need to use for a cable of this length. The cables I am using are the 50 foot ones. The cables seem to have polarized ends. This is my first experience with displayport cables so maybe the shorter ones are also. So, if you run these cables through a wall make sure you plug them in first. Then write "computer" on one end and "monitor" on the other before putting them inside the wall. By the way I am using a Gigabyte GV-N960WF2oc-2GD...
Just so people in search of a VESA-compliant DP cable know, the P580-series cables are supposed to have an unpowered Pin 20 as per an e-mail from a Tripp Lite applications specialist. I just ordered it, so will confirm once I have it on hand.
