DisplayPort 1.3 and HDMI 2.0b, with HDR support  and support for 1080p and 1440p displays at 240Hz, ultra-wide 1440p displays at 190Hz and 4K displays at up to 120Hz
 
NVIDIA is also stating that display port 1.4 will be supported as well since that version is just a VESA Display Stream Compression change (which also allows 8K monitor support with 60 hertz).

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3

    If they support DP 1.4, they're also supporting FreeSync which is in the spec?

    That's interesting Brad because I thought that DP 1.4 was simply a compression change for 8K.

    Ah, you're right. DisplayPort 1.2a is FreeSync, not 1.4.

    Wikipedia DP1.4 specs:
    [DSC is a "visually lossless" encoding technique with up to 3:1 compression ratio.[20] Using DSC with HBR3 transmission rates, DisplayPort 1.4 can support 8K UHD (7680×4320) at 60 Hz with 10-bit color and HDR, or 4K UHD (3840×2160) at 120 Hz with 10-bit color and HDR. 4K at 60 Hz with 10-bit color and HDR can be achieved without the need for DSC. On displays which do not support DSC, the maximum limits are unchanged from DisplayPort 1.3 (4K 120 Hz, 5K 60 Hz, 8K 30 Hz).[22] ]

    But wouldnt they still support freesynch? Can you support 1.4 and not 1.2a?

    I have a question that I can't seem to get an answer too.  If its been asked and answered I apologize.  Do these new cards have stackable memory?  My take is that this means two 4 gig cards in sli would actually be 8 gigs of memory.  any hoo sorry if it sounds stupid.

    with pascal we have unified memory - so an 2 gtx 1080 8GB cards will give you 16GB of ram in SLI not the standard of one card's memory regardless of how many cards you used to have in Sli

    So is this card going to support HDMI 2.1 via the Displayport 1.4 firmware upgrade offered by NVIDIA a couple years back or so? My main GPU is the EVGA GTX 1070 FTW & was around $430 shipped in 2016. Not that old of a GPU by today's standards, for non-gamers more than enough, beats any Intel HD Graphics which ships with CPU & for that matter, those of select AMD chips as well. 
     
    I find it odd that the 1070/1080 & Ti versions of each, not being that old & had a very successful run for NVIDIA (more so than the 2000 series) won't (or may not) be getting what's needed for VRR or whatever term it's called to run 4K at 120 Hz. Same goes for the GTX 1060, some of these were over $300. I own two, one being the SSC, forget the model of the other, although both were the 6GB GDDR5 versions (didn't care for the 3GB variant). 
     
    Anyone know anything which may have developed?

    This thread is over 4 years old in the NEWS section of the forum.  This isn't the proper place to troubleshoot whatever issue you are having with your video card.
     
    I have absolutely no idea what your question is.  You are rambling and making the question unclear.  You own the video card you are asking the question about, is this something you aren't able to figure out on your own?
     
    If you have a problem or question about your video card, you should start a new thread in the proper section of the forum.  Asking questions about your video card is NOT NEWS.

    Please accept my apologies, was looking up the issue & ran across this Topic first, didn't notice the age. Will post my question elsewhere in the forum as suggested, in a current open topic, or start my own.
