The Plugable DP-HDMI active adapter allows you to connect your DisplayPort-enabled computer or tablet to virtually any HDMI display. As more and more system manufacturers such as Microsoft, Intel, Dell, and Lenovo include DispalyPort outputs on their systems, Plugable’s active adapters enable you to continue to utilize your existing HDMI displays while minimizing potential compatibility issues that can be caused by low-cost, low-quality “passive” adapters.
Our active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter is capable of supporting up to a 594MHz pixel clock and allows resolutions up to 3840×2160@60Hz (4K). (Most inexpensive “passive” adapters on the market, also known as “level-shifters” or “Type 1" adapters, have a maximum resolution of 1920×1200.) Supports pass-through of LPCM/HBR audio up to 8-channels and 192kHz sample rate.
The adapter has passed the extensive testing requirements necessary for VESA certification, and is compliant with VESA Dual-Mode DisplayPort 1.2, High Bit Rate 2 (HBR2), and HDMI 2.0 standards. The adapter is also AMD Eyefinity and Nvidia compatible.

The Plugable active DisplayPort to HDMI adapters should work with virtually any DisplayPort-enabled host and HDMI display, regardless of which operating system is in use. Though please note that system will require functional graphics drivers as normal.
Available resolution options will be determined by the specifications and abilities of your computer/graphics adapter and attached display. I.e.; if the graphics adapter in your system is only capable of outputting a maximum of 1080P to an external display, the Plugable active adapters will not allow you to exceed this limitation, regardless of the specifications of the attached monitor.
Will convert from DisplayPort on computer to HDMI on monitor only. Not a bi-directional adapter, and not compatible with gaming consoles, DVD/Blu-ray players or USB ports.
HDMI connector fit may vary. Using too much force at insertion or removal can damage connectors. This can be a big deal if it's an expensive device like a Virtual Reality/Mixed Reality headset with non-removable cables. So be gentle, and if you have any questions about a particular connection please contact our support team.

My screen is also HDR capable and the adaptor works although I’m not sure I’m using any HDR content.
The adaptor also arrived a lot quicker than would have been required if I had ordered one from a US Amazon supplier.

EDIT: After hours of trying to get it to work at 4K @ 60hz, I finally found a solution which will hopefully save some of you time in similar situations. In the Nvidia control panel under 'Choose the Resolution', click the customize button, then click 'Create Custom Resolution' at the bottom of the window. Under 'Timing', set the Standard to 'CVT reduced blank' and voila! Glorious 4K at 60hz!
Eventually I got this working as expected at 4K@60Hz with UHD colour but it was painful getting there as I had several further hurdles to cross.
Heres what I learnt along the way:
1) The laptop must have a version of the Intel drivers that allow you to create a custom resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz, you must use CVT-RB timing.
2) The Dell Docking Unit must have the internal wiring needed for multi stream DP (MST). I found out the hard way only the latter USB3.0 ones with the blue USB connectors will work. The one that worked for me was the Eport II advanced, with 2 display ports and 2 DVI ports.
3) Only works on HDMI 1 of the Samsung TV with HDMI UHD colour turned on, without this setting only 30Hz is possible.
4) Buying an expensive HDMI cable was a red herring, once I replaced the dock I found all my cheap HDMI cables worked fine with 4k@60Hz.
5) I can also use my second 1080p monitor and the laptop screen at the same time.
6) The CPU in the laptop also has a bearing on wether 4k@60Hz is possible, my i5 5300U was ok.
So finally after a few weeks of playing around I have the elusive 4K@60Hz with full UHD colour, result!
Gave it a chance TWICE ... didn't work. Disappointed.
I am a IT Engineer/Director and have bought loads of different converters which claimed to do 4K at 60khz to find out they don’t, or will but only at 30khz. Well this does 60khz and passes the display info from the monitor to the host.
So for example i have used two these on my dual displayport laptop dock to go into my hdmi on my 32” 4K cad monitors. It not only does the display but passes the profiles through so I can use the displaypilot software so I can section up my screen. So I can have 8 pictures (4 squares on each monitor) via the software due to it being able to detect the monitor models.
Yes these are more expensive than some on here, but these are the cheapest ones that work!
If I require anymore I will be ordering these.
Specifically I have an Asus Matrix Platinum 7970 3GB, with a total of six ports - two DVI and four DP. I am using all six ports: 2 DVI to DVI, 2 DP to DP, one DP to active HDMI (using this Plugable adapter), one DP to active DVI (using an active DVI adapter.)
Plug one end into a GPU DisplayPort, plug a standard HDMI cable into the other, and job done. Active DP to HDMI achieved, both sound and picture.
Note that you can't use this with an HDMI-to-DVI cable to achieve active DP-to-DVI, you need a proper active DP-to-DVI adapter if you want to achieve that. Plugable don't sell one of those, but other manufacturers do here on Amazon.
I have a HTPC with a R9 Nano in thanks to its slightly more compact size and custom waterblock available yet AMD for some reason at the time eschewed HDMI 2.0 for what was at the time the perfect HTPC card. The card does have Displayport 1.2, which can output to 4k @ 60hz which is where this adaptor does it magic.
I simply plugged it in, navigated to displaycard properties and was presented the 60hz option when running at 4k. Job done plain and simple.
Adaptor is slightly pricey, but it is an active rather then passive adaptor and they all seem to come in at around this sort of price range so can't really knock a star.
Had to buy one as my new HDTV only has HDMI 2.0 ports but I prefer Display Port from my PC due to the HDMI colour space bug with Nvidia's GPUs refusing to recognise most HDTVs due to Windows OS limitations.
This adapter does the trick as it allows you to connect directly into the back of your Graphics card then attach to a HDMI 2.0 cable which feeds the HDTV allowing better colour space control within the OS as it then recognises the HDTV differently (as a Digital Monitor instead of HDTV).
This does the full 4K @ 60 Hz beware of cheap imitations which only do 4K @ 30 Hz. That is why this is more expensive as you get what you pay for this is the best adapter for this purpose. If only it could do HDMI 2.0a for HDR on Windows 10 then it would be perfect!
- you need a HDMI 2.0 ready HDMI cable. Most cables sold in the last few years are 2.0 ready, or you can buy one quite cheaply. There are some inconsistencies across using cables from other devices. For example, the Nintendo Switch HDMI cable isn't 2.0 ready, but the one that comes with a Steam Link is. So try a few out.
- you may need to tinker with settings in your TV - some people have had luck enabling settings along the lines of 'super resolution' or 'ultra HD colour' settings. On my Philips Ambilight TV, I couldn't find anything that worked.
- For older AMD R9 series graphics cards, many of them claim to support 4k 60hz over their display ports, but not the HDMI port. But some time in 2017, AMD updated their drivers and broke (or removed) the 4k 60hz compatibility. And they still haven't fixed it. So the only way I've got this working is to roll back AMD's graphics drivers to an older version (16.12.1) and prevent them from installing newer updates. I haven't properly roadtested it on any newer games, but so far I haven't ran into any compatibility issues caused by using old drivers.
So, the cable works (for now!). But any number of graphics card/cable/TV related settings can cause it not to work... so consider how much you're prepared to spend on giving yourself a headache and finding that happy balance hardwares.
My only axe is that they are overly expensive, in fact they have increased 20% since I purchased six weeks ago! But then, that is my choise to pay that much, it does not detract from the fact that they always just work and are reliable and seem to be well made.
Be aware that not all adaptors do 4K @ 60Hz, so don't be disappointed if you get the wrong one and find it doesn't perform as well as you expected - they do declare its capabilities, so choose carefully!
Both monitors are served by 5 metre HDMI cables; the one for the Full HD monitor being via DVI to HDMI converter and the 4K monitor via direct HDMI cable.
Initially, the 4K monitor flashed on and off badly (even at 30 Hz) despite the fact that it was served by direct HDMI cable with no converter. Eventually I twigged that the flashing only happened if the Full HD monitor - served by a passive DVI to HDMI converter - was powered on.
Switching to this Plugable active converter for the Full HD monitor has solved the problem entirely; no more flashing of the 4K monitor even at 60Hz and even though it isn't using the converter itself.
For info the 4K monitor is a Dell P2715Q.
Original review of faulty unit:
It does do 4k/60hz with 444 colours like promised (no HDR, also as per store page), but it introduces terrible bugs, like horizontal lines appearing constantly for a split second at the time. Possibly I just have a faulty unit or there is a problem with it reporting the wrong timing or something. I'll ask their support and report back. For the time being, avoid this product.
"... please double check the HDMI-1 port is set to use the HDMI 2.0 standards using the on screen menu (...) (mine was set for 1.4 as default by my monitor)
After changing settings, you may need to disconnect the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter from the computer and restart the system for the graphics card to properly identify the change of HDMI protocols."
that ends a long quest to get 4k on an old mac mini. not for everyday as menus too small. kodi worked in 4k but skygo player was not good. will keep it as it adds a second display too and on my minix as well i believe. cant decide if to return for minidp
