Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 UHD

So you’re asking why did I buy it? Well in one of my previous posts, I blogged about my new 41.5 inch Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV which I am currently using as a monitor, but I was able to get the max resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30Hz refresh rate. This resolution was just okay for coding and general use. But the problem appears when I’m trying to play some of the games I have in full screen with the max resolution, the game gets really slow.

This is an active adapter which will convert the Mini DisplayPort 1.2 signal to HDMI 2.0 with 60Hz. So now playing all the games in full resolution is awesome, everything runs really smooth and streaming games from my Xbox One.

The TV has 3 HDMI inputs and only 1 HDMI 2.0 port that can do UHD 4K at 60Hz 3840 x 2160 resolution. Continue reading
