          if you wake up, answer the question
          if you can use DP just get a DP-HDMI adapter for your tv, problem solved
          if not, idk what to do, maybe but a better TV

          meds, and high end TVs nowdays only have HDMI ports, also adapters do not have HDR and/or VRR and if they do, its only supported by limited TV models (which are usually old)

            DP and HDMI literally carry the same signal, an adapter is fine.

            That was DVI and HDMI dumbass. And it hasn't even been true for a while since they keep upgrading hdmi but not DVI which has been replaced by DP as the open standard.

            also nope. HDMI uses a packet-based format which allows it to carry audio among other things. DVI is strictly a pure video stream that's not extendable

            and the reason people think they are the same is because HDMI approved devices must be backwards compatible with DVI, but the reverse is not necessarily true.

            Old hdmi is just a single link dvi with audio channels stapled on. If they weren't identical a passive pin converter wouldn't work.
            "CEA-861 signals carried by HDMI are electrically compatible with the CEA-861 signals used by the Digital Visual Interface (DVI). No signal conversion is necessary"
            go be dumb somewhere else.

      You're falling for the hobbyists' fallacy
      Hobbyists will say anything that allows more tinkering is automatically better than something that doesn't, regardless of how stable or usable it is to a more normal user.

      Nvidia generally is fine for mainstream distros, where Nvidia becomes a problem is when people go out onto the weeds with their kernel, like running arch with newer kernels or running some more obscure distro that lacks the type of testing mainstream distros do.

      This is something you see more and more of in whatever community. In the 3d printer community, something like a Voron is considered one of the best printers, but only because it's open-source and you have to build and tune it yourself, not because it's easy to use and gets great results straight away.

        Apparently the Rx 460, which I actually am using rn, works on a lot of Linux distros, and even on the new pi somehow.

        So it's not so simple as amd this or that. There may be nvidia cards that are solid on Linux.

      nah, nvidia just don't care about anything that isn't related to enterprise/server use.
      2 or more displays with a refresh rate difference?
      frick you. enjoy your stuttering or tearing mess so pick one of those, get matching displays, or go back to 1 display.
      sleep mode fricking up shit?

      It's not tha simple. Nvidia is supported on Linux workstations. AMD cards are basically carried by the Mesa driver, not by AMD.

      that was sort of true in the past but not really anymore.
      actually intel's integrated graphics were pretty much always the best supported on linux, just not useful for much of anything.
      nvidia is fine now for running outputting a display and running games. professional cards work fine for professional use but trying to use geforce cards for professional stuff is still a headache (by nvidia's design)
      amd is better than nvidia, but its thanks to mesa not to amd (well you can thank amd for not obfuscating or actively hampering everything, like nvidia). it takes about a year after amd releases a new gen of cards for shit like undervolting and whatnot to be fully supported

        Real life has more like a 1000Hz, but in reality it has infinity Hz. For frick sake just go to a best buy, most of the gaming setups have high refresh rate monitors you can check in settings. Don't dismiss it until you actually give it a honest shot

          You don't have the pay for the damn thing either, they have them setup so you can try the computers. I tried one a while ago, and I didn't know what it was at the time, but it felt noticeably faster even just moving the mouse and I was confused why my PC isn't like that

    Display port wins again, I can't wait until display port kills HDMI. It is in TV manufacturers best interest to kill off display port, not only is a a better standard and supports more, it also is royalty free to include in your product

    • 3 weeks ago

      Brainlet-take, Displayport is not for the A/V market. HDMI is an A/V interface
      The HDMI port on your discrete GPU replaces S-Video, composite and component outs that used to be on discrete GPUs before HDMI became a thing.

      >standard and supports more, it also is royalty free to include in your product
      You really don't understand how little HDMI costs in royalties and how much DP costs for the hardware. (Hint: HDMI is dirt cheap to implement compared to DP)

      There is a reason every cheap ass chink SBC/PC will come with HDMI first before DP even if they have to pay royalties.
      It's why the OG Raspberry Pi back when they cared about cost came with HDMI, it was literally the cheapest thing to put on the board, they could have put DVI with no actual changes electrically but even that was more expensive

    Intel cards convert HDMI to DP using some ASIC that's transparent to the user.

        that's just luck, because there are open nvidia issues. It's a wayland issue with explicit sync vs implicit sync. You get flickering because things are not timed right, but if you are lucky then it will be timed right.
