possibly for any card to get 120fps at 2160p resolution?

Wow really?
A cable is just a cable, it gets it's signals and outputs them. Some like Dual link DVI or Display port can do 120+ Hz at 1920, 1080, of course the higher the res, the more bandwidth that takes so they can't do super high FPS at those resolutions due to "Tubes being jammed"

If the cable is maxed at 60hz, how can the display go past it?

anyone?

the monitor or hdtv has tech inside that enables 120hz or 240hz..it's like an upscale to make the image smoother


That's called 'Interpolation' and it's a terrible thing for gamers (But possibly great for movie/TV watchers) as it scans frames in advance to add guessed frames inbetween them to smooth out the image more. (This creates severe input lag)

This is almost always found in HDTVs and not PC marketed monitors, they are also not "true" 120Hz displays as they don't usually accept a true 120Hz input.

As torres007 posted (and you questioned?) there are true 120Hz displays out there, here's one on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014270


I thought the max hz of a display cable is 60hz. So i'm wondering how can it go past 60hz when gaming...torres's post just said that there are legimiate 120hz monitors out there, but how will they work on that if all cables max display at 60hz? I'm probably sounding really dumb, but I just don't get it...You say a cable is just a cable and some can do 120+ hz at 1080, but someone else said the max hz of cables are 60hz (display port and hdmi), so how is 120hz/120 FPS possible?

ok, I did so, and I still don't understand....the cable has nothing to do with the refresh rate/hertz displayed?

The cables are just cables. There are bandwidth limits before signal loss, but that varies from cable to cable.
The interface standards have soft limits that all devices adhering to that standard must comply with. Ex, if your video card can't output 120hz/1920x1080 on DVI-D, it's not DVI-D compliant, and is essentially either mislabeled or defective.
The cables run a frequency of several hundred mhz normally, and the client device takes the information sent over that and recompiles it into an image internally, and then sends that to the panel, which then sorts it and sends it to the individual pixels.

You didn't really think that two sets of 3x3 pins could send a complete 1920x1200 image in a single cycle, did you?


I thought they all run at 60?

or do i have this completely wrong?


this topic is getting out of hand, let's just call it a day...


You have this completely wrong.
