Best DisplayPort Cables 2021: Our Top Picks For Gaming!

If you're after the best DisplayPort cables, you've come to the right place! We've rounded up some of the best cables available right now which should ensure speedy, reliable and quality connections between your PC or laptop and your chosen monitor.

Selecting the right DisplayPort cable is relatively straightforward, however, it is worth remembering a few things before purchasing. 

First off, make sure you're selecting the right DisplayPort version for your needs. We'd say that since DisplayPort cables are backwards compatible, it would seem to make sense to go for a newer DisplayPort 1.4 cable, which has a maximum total bandwidth of 32.40 Gbps.

DisplayPort 1.4 can support 5K resolutions at 60Hz, and 4K resolution at up to 120Hz, similar to the best HDMI 2.1 cables.

It can also support 240hz gaming at both 1080p and the increasingly popular 1440p resolution too.

So, whether you're a solid connection that offers an 8K display with the KabelDirekt version 1.4, or require a lengthier cable like the Snowkids 4K 4.5M, we've got you covered.

Let's dive in and take a look at some of the best DisplayPort cables you can get right now.
