I have a Viewsonic monitor model VP2770 operating at its maximum resolution of 2560x1440 pixels via a DVD-DL cable. The monitor has the following digital inputs:

DVI-D Dual Link
Display Port 1.2
HDMI 1.4 (max 1920x1080 for PC or 2560x1440 for Mac)

New high resolution graphics cards generally have some of the following inputs:

DisplayPort 1.4
HDMI 2.0
USB-C
DVI-DL (not common)

Of the above, I can't use HDMI or USB-C on my monitor. I should be OK using a DVI-DL input but this interface is not present on many new cards. I could use the DisplayPort 1.4 ouput but my monitor has a DisplayPort 1.2 connection. Will a new graphics card using DisplayPort 1.4 have any problems displaying at 2560x1440 pixels using the DisplayPort 1.2 connection on my monitor?

I'm mystified why the VP2770 specification only supports a PC at 1920x1080 pixels but supports a Mac at 2560x1440 pixels.
