Great Cable Perfect for 4K@60Hz -
This cable does let you do 4K Resolution at 60 hz. None of the other reviews specifically stated this so I wanted to put my comments and review here. Your video card needs to support 4K and be able to do 60Hz along with your Monitor. So check your Monitor specs and Video card specs to see if it supports 4K.
one other note I want to add is that as soon as I plugged it in, the monitor would not do the 60Hz! It was doing Full 4K at 30 Hz which made the mouse slow and "laggy"
Go into your Monitor Settings from pressing those convoluded buttons on the monitor and find out where to set it to DisplayPort 1.2 then it will work.
so a recap to get full HD 4K at 60Hz
1. Your monitor needs to Support 4K @ 60 hertz - With DisplayPort 1.2
2. Your Video Card needs to be powerful and support 4K Video @ 60 Hertz
3. You need to use DisplayPort Cable to connect Monitor to Computer(Video Card)
4. You need to set your Monitor to use DisplayPort 1.2 (It not set by default, you need to find it and change it to get 60 Hertz) - This one is what was catching me till I found out about DisplayPort 1.2 - http://www.geek.com/chips/displayport-1-2-enables-full-4k-x-2k-resolution-3d-stereo-beyond-full-hd-and-more-1057322/
Hope that helps

WHICH END PLUGS INTO THE MONITOR MATTERED!
By C. Douglas
I just purchased the 15ft version of this cable for use with my Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 and Acer XB280HK monitor.
My setup has my computer in a ventilated closet next to the computer room. This helps cut down on heat and fan noise in the room, but it also means I need longer cables. I purchased the 15ft version to take care of this, but when I plugged it in, I saw HORRIBLE on/off flickering. It was worse for the ports farther from the PCIe pins (closest to the edge of the card) than the port closest.
I almost sent the cable back, but then I tried something odd... I switch the cable around and plugged in the side with the label into the back of my computer and the other side into my monitor. This completely fixed my issue. I can now plug the cable into any port on my computer and do not see ANY flickering. Why would this happen? Maybe Cable Matters only terminates the shielding of the cable at one end, which is a practice to eliminate certain modes of interference. This could mean that one side of my setup is grounded better and is able to sink any interference better than the other. Worth a shot if you have similar issues as mine.
TLDR: If you experience your monitor flickering on/off, turn the cable around and try it the other way.

15ft works for ASUS ROG PG279Q @ 1440p
Few years ago, I purchased the 10ft Cable Matters DP cable for a Dell U2715H 2560x1440p @ 60Hz. Never had any issues with it.
I recently purchased the Asus ROG SWIFT PG279Q 2560x1440p @ 144Hz. I purchased the 15ft Cable Matters DP cable since this ASUS monitor is on a long arm mount away from the PC. This length gives the most flexibility in movement vs the 10 ft.
I was worried the 15ft would not work for this resolution and refresh rate given some of the reviews for these size monitors.
I'm happy to say the 15ft runs the ROG fine @ 144Hz @ 1440p resolution with no issues, that I've noticed, so far. It was able to run the ROG even @ 165Hz in game as well, even though I did not reach that framerate.
This was my experience so I can't speak of other monitors, but the 15 ft length seems to work for 1440p resolution at high refresh rates on the Asus ROG PG279Q. Some folks seem to have had trouble with this, but I have nothing but positive experience with these cables so far.
