It’s the industry replacement for outmoded display technologies such as DVI, LVDS and VGA and it’s currently being built into all new PC chipsets, GPU’s and display controllers from major silicon manufacturers. DisplayPort utilizes a state-of-the-art digital protocol and provides an expandable foundation to enable amazing digital display technology while providing compatibility with existing equipment. Designed specifically for usage in space-constrained applications like ultra-thin notebooks, netbooks and graphics cards where connector space is at a premium and where display performance really matters.
DisplayPort is designed to be the future-ready, scalable solution for high performance digital display connectivity. It enables the highest resolutions, the fastest refresh rates and deepest color depths over standard cables.
DisplayPort has unique features and capabilities that enable exciting new types of displays and display usages. And it doesn’t require PC owners to replace all of their equipment because simple adaptors allow DisplayPort enabled devices to connect to monitors and projectors that use older technologies such as DVI, HDMI and VGA.
The DisplayPort standard is available to VESA Members only.
