How do I connect a monitor that requires DisplayPort 1.2?

The built-in DisplayPort is compliant with the DisplayPort specification 1.2a for both 1.62Gbps and 2.7Gbps. If your monitor requires 5.4Gbps, you can either purchase a 3rd party Thunderbolt 3 to DisplayPort adapter that supports DisplayPort 1.2a at 5.4Gbps or you can change the settings of your monitor (if available) to 1.1 and use the built-in DisplayPort.
