DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort Cables
These cables allow you to connect your PC to a monitor where the PC has a Mini DP output and the monitor has a standard DP input. See also standard DP cables.
- High quality DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort cable
- Locking connectors prevent accidental disconnection
- Gold plated contacts for increased conductivity
- Fully moulded connectors for maximum reliability
- Supports all DisplayPort standards
These Standard to Mini DisplayPort™ (DP) cables are designed to work with any Mini DP Source device such as a PC or laptop, and any monitor with a standard-sized DP input. They are compatible with any DisplayPort device, from the very first ones introduced in 2008 through to the newest and future systems that support multi-stream and display resolutions up to 4K (Ultra HD) at 60Hz. You can also use these cables between a PC and a multi-stream hub, or between daisy-chainable multi-stream monitors.
4K display resolutions
We recommend that DisplayPort be used in preference to HDMI where possible because DisplayPort supports UHD (Ultra High Definition) video resolutions at 60 Hz. In contrast, most PC implementations of HDMI are based on HDMI version 1.4 which does not support UHD / 4K. The newer HDMI 2.0 standard has yet to see widespread adoption in the PC industry, so if you intend to run UHD at 60 Hz then a DisplayPort connection between your PC and your monitor will be required. Running your PC at a 24 Hz or 30 Hz refresh rate is usually undesirable because it produces jerky mouse pointer movement and a general perception of PC sluggishness.
You don’t need to worry about getting a special cable to support certain DisplayPort capabilities. Despite what you may have read elsewhere, in fact there is no such thing as a DisplayPort 1.1 cable and DisplayPort 1.2 cable. All of the standard DisplayPort cables that we sell will work for any DisplayPort configuration including the new capabilities enabled by DisplayPort 1.2 such as 4K and multi-stream capabilities. Furthermore, all standard DisplayPort cables support RBR (Reduced Bit Rate), HBR (High Bit Rate), and HBR2 (High Bit Rate 2), which can support 4K at 60Hz, or up to four 1080p displays using multi-stream.
While other retailers may try to sell you a more expensive cable claiming that it will provide a better picture quality, we are here to debunk that myth. Contrary to what you might think, the more expensive cable will not give you any better picture quality. DisplayPort uses packetised data, similar to USB and Ethernet, to send digital display and audio data, therefore you either get all of the data or you don’t. Unlike older video interfaces, you don’t get a “better” picture or any other incremental improvements with a more expensive cable. But of course a poor quality cable could lead to data errors and obvious corruption of the video or audio data, so we would still recommend that you avoid the very cheapest cables.
There are two DisplayPort connector types. The standard DisplayPort connector is about the size of a USB connector, and this type is commonly used on DisplayPort-enabled PC monitors and many PC motherboards. The smaller mini DisplayPort connector is commonly used for the DisplayPort outputs on discrete PC graphics cards, especially those with multiple outputs. The cables shown on this page have a standard sized DP connector on one end and a Mini DP connector on the other.
For cables with standard sized DP connectors at both ends, please see this page.

“I’ve always built my own PC’s”
“I’ve always built my own PC’s, but this time around I figured I’d buy a ready made. I was a little apprehensive, but after working out the cost of the components I’d be paying not a lot more to have it built, shipped and warranted.
I gave Quiet PC a try and am so glad I did.
I’m not a gamer and wanted a fast and silent PC to do development work on. A fast process, disk and lots of memory is required for virtual machines and compiling code. So I went for the fastest i9 I could.

When it arrived - earlier than expected, I powered it on and installed my OS etc. I discovered that my monitors wouldn’t stay on. I was using a power saving plug that turns my monitors on only when my PC is on. This new PC draws so little power the energy saving plug doesn’t detect it’s on!
It’s so strange that it sits there totally silent. It’s actually difficult to tell if it’s on.
When I opened the case (no screws required) to install my WiFi card the inside was so tidy I was very impressed. Compared to my old rats nest of wires in the old PC this is almost bare.
A very satisfied customer. Well done Quiet PC.”
