If you follow the tech scene, you know how DisplayPort tech has evolved over the last few years. This display technology can not only deliver high-resolution audio and video, but also allows you to string multiple displays via s single port to create a multi-monitor rig.
The best thing is that the higher bandwidth in DisplayPort means almost no compression, especially if the connected screen is a high-resolution display. And the gamer in you must already know that monitors connected via DisplayPort let you reap advantages of both AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync. That ultimately translates into a seamless gaming experience minus stutters and lags.
So, if you are in the market searching for monitors with dual DisplayPort, here are some of the best ones. From gaming monitors to monitors for professionals, we have tried to cover all of them.
If you are looking for a 4K monitor with high-refresh rates, the Acer Nitro XV273K Pbmiipphzx makes for a good buy. It's designed for gamers and works well with FreeSync and G-Sync systems. It bundles a duo of DisplayPort ports, and once connected, this gaming monitor lets you reap the full advantage of the 144Hz refresh and the extra color depth.
The overall performance is exceptional, thanks to the culmination of lower response time, high refresh rate, and color performance. When we take of color profiles, it displays 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Like its predecessors, it has a pixel density of 163 PPI.
Apart from the HDMI ports and the DisplayPorts, the XV273K packs 4 USB 3.0 ports.
When it comes to the HDR, the color and grayscale are pretty much accurate. However, the folks at the Toms Hardware believe that the dynamic range is the same as in SDR mode.
Looks-wise, it doesn't pack a sharp look. The bezels are a bit wider. On the upside, this monitor is very flexible and warrants a flexible gaming experience.

Pricing is one of the features that make the ViewSonic VP2468 stand apart from the rest. It costs below $300 and is suitable for people who do color-critical work. The monitor comes factory calibrated to over 99% of the sRGB color gamut and Delta E to deliver accurate colors. Several professional reviewers have backed that.

And if that's not enough, it also displays an average dE of below 2.0. And the IPS display brings home a stellar picture quality and with great grayscale performance.
Another unique thing about the U2717D is that it offers a standard DisplayPort and a Mini DisplayPort for input and a third DisplayPort for output. That means you can use it to connect to other monitors via a single cable without worrying about the wire clutter.
The standard DisplayPort and a mini DisplayPort lets you choose the input as per your preference without compromising on the quality.
The bezel-less and sleek look of the monitor also helps the multi-monitor setup. Apart from the above ports, the U2717D also packs an HDMI connector, USB-B upstream port, and a total of 4 USB Type-A 3.0 ports.
