Thanks I will take a look at those. I assumed by the size of the adapter it was active. I can't imagine why else the HDMI end is so large. But I have read a bit more and HDMI is also limited. Or at least the HDMI version. I now know I need HDMI V2.0 and not 1.4. This one says it supports 2.0 but I am doubtful. I was also aware of the refresh rate issue since these cards are aimed at gamers. Some were stating as low as 24Hz which must rely on the display to triple the refresh rate. But that would have to be a DP signal.
The video card I have can support up to WQHD. And we will have newer ones shortly. It is still a bit of a header scratcher figuring out spec sheets.
Edit: Just saw this in the Amazon comments: MANUFACTURER ANSWER: Thanks for asking! Unfortunately, our adapter converts a DP 1.2 signal to HDMI 2.0 (not HDMI 2.0a or HDMI 2.0b variants), not DP 1.4. Additionally, our adapter does not support HDR imaging.
