    display adaptor response time

    I have a coboc DVI/DP adapto (active)....this one. My primary monitor is using the DVI port on my GTX 1060 and my secondary monitor is using the adaptor.

    My issue is: When I boot up my PC the primary monitor response time is just under 2 seconds to have a live screen (BIOS splash screen). The secondary monitor takes 5 - 7 seconds before it becomes active. Is this normal?

    Yes, pretty well normal, one is always primary display out and other one(s) do not show until BIOS finishes P.O.S.T. cycle. Now, some monitors may also be a bit "lazy" to light up background so that may also ad to time. Monitors with multiple inputs also must "decide" which input to use according to signal they get.One of my secondary monitors shows picture after about 2 seconds but second one takes much longer and I can see in it's OSD trying out all 3 inputs until it settles to right one (DVI > HDMI adapter).
