@username Thank you for sharing this new bidirectional DP to USB-C cable. I believe it’s similar to the Moshi DP to USB-C cable. There’s a fine print on Moshi specs stating the USB-C monitor has to accept a DisplayPort signal over USB-C (UFP_D pin assignment E). You can read this discussion on the Moshi cable.

The Moshi cable is also bidirectional and is VESA certified for HBR3 speed ([email protected]).

I would consider the monoprice cable if someone handed it to me free.
