Default DisplayPort vs HDMI image quality difference?

Does anybody know if there are actual differences in image quality between DisplayPort and HDMI at lower resolutions i.e. 1080p? I've seen some people say that there is no point in DP below 4k or even 5k while others say they get a clearer, more vibrant picture using DP no matter the resolution. Does anybody have any hands-on experience with this?

They're both the same digital signal.
