I bought this cable to connect my gaming laptop to my new monitor. When buying the monitor and cable, the MemExpr sales rep asked me to post a reveiw confirming this setup works. So here it is! Here's what I bought this cable to connect: Razer Blade Pro 17" (2019) to LG 32GK650F-B Connection Details: * Laptop port type: Thunderbolt 3 w/ USB C style connector * Monitor port type: Full-sized Display port 1.2 * Latest nVidia drivers as of writing this review
A bit pricey for a cable. I ended up returning this cable (3ft) for a longer one (6ft). 3ft is great if you connect directly to a monitor on your desk (which I do), however I wanted to route the cable nicely. Needed to get a longer one to do that.
Other Details: The Thunderbolt 3 port on this laptop is directly connected to the internal Max-Q video card. Not all laptop video cards have this feature. Be sure to check with your manufacturer. The laptop is connected directly to the monitor on the Thunderbolt 3 port to Display Port 1. There are no hubs or docking stations in between -- Just the cable. Freesync needs to be enabled on the monitor, and in the NVidia control panel. You must have drivers that enable Freesync support. These came out around mid-January 2019. When in doubt, go most recent.
