So i have only just found out what displayport is, i assumed it was a very outdated port, but i have read it is better than HDMI from many sources. i have a Sapphire HD 5870 GPU (http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?psn=000101&pid=337) which has a displayport, but i dont know how to find out if its 1.1 or 1.2, can anyone help?
also i was going to try using displayport to connect to my monitor to see if there is any picture changes, but i only have an hdmi input, so was thinking about using a displayport cable and then an adapter like this http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/4137711/art/iberia-pc/display-port-male-to-hdmi.html
or would that negate any displayport improvements?
thanks for any info on any of this!
