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 experiences. Designed for low power implementation and high performance, DisplayPort enables the next generation display technology while providing compatibility with existing equipment. Designed specifically for usage in space-constrained applications applications like ultra-thin notebooks, netbooks and graphic 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.
*VGA requires a separate converter device. DVI and HDMI supported only when DisplayPort source device has DP++ capability, and require a separate adaptor. Full DisplayPort resolution not supported on non-DisplayPort devices.
