what use is this cable?

  gengiscant 13:53 28 Jul 2010

I have been having a sort out of the various boxes of PC parts and cables and came accross one that I am having difficulty in identifying.

THe cable has printed on it. Display port E124936-G, made by Foxconn, 80c, 30v. The connections at each end are similar to Esata.

Is it any use? Where would I use it?

Isn't Display Port the Apple version of HDMI?

If you have a hole it fits in, it's useful.

If you haven't, it isn't!
