In terms of future-proofing I agree (and today-proofing in terms of HDMI 2.1), but at least DP 1.4 isn't a thing (yet), and IMO it's better to be able to connect your display without tilting your case over, even if you have to run at slightly reduced bit depth or refresh rate (can't DP 1.2 still do 2160p144, at least with DSC?). I would also be surprised if ADT-link didn't have HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 compliant cables in the works by now, at least for shorter runs like what is needed here.The issue with these extensions is that they do not support the latest HDMI and DP versions. HDMI is limited to 2.0b and some users have reported getting only up to 1.2 speed on the DP cables. IIRC, the Velka 7 had a lot of issues with this. For a retail case, this can't be accepted imo.
