VESA is preparing for a new generation of DisplayPort, the capacity will double double against DP 1.4

Until recently, the official standard HDMI 2.1 was officially published. While we are waiting for some time to come up with some devices for the first time, there is an unusual situation: HDMI is the ability to transfer capacity all at once before DisplayPort , which was progressive in the past. However, VESA Consortium is now fully aware of the evolution of its interface for attaching screens to take extra resolutions

Whether the new generation will be named DisplayPort 1.5 or a 2.0-inch needle, we do not know about it because there was not a specific standard right at the time. VESA seems to have only mentioned that the new version works to meet the needs of upcoming monitors (and projectors, headsets) with higher and higher resolutions. The goal is for the new version to be completed by 18 months, which means that its final consortium will probably be postponed until the middle of 2019. The premises will probably go well (2020) if not later

The goal of the new DisplayPort will lift the physical transmission capacity of the interface to twice as much as possible. The DisplayPort 1.3 a 1.4 has already a capacity of 32.4 Gbps, so we should move to almost 65 Gbps after duplication. This will probably require a change in the physical layer and a lot of new cables. It will be necessary to add either a new communication line, or you have to get twice the higher frequency throughput. HDMI 2.1 is designed to resolve 8K (7680 – 2160 dots) to 10K (10240 – 5760 dots), with a higher capacity so the new DisplayPort should be ready for the next > Greater area, higher frequency and higher bit depth HDR monitors

Manufacturers of notebooks and tablets might want to see the USB-C port switch, so they could continue practically to grab a number of outputs to the required minimum or even below > J (Macbookâ € |). This connector is small enough to ask whether it is fully suitable for desktop PCs and graphics cards.

If the shipped transfer speeds are met, then DisplayPort â € ” (as has been said, the name is not yet known) is surpassed by HDMI 2.1. In roughly the same way as HDMI 2.1 simultaneously touched the point that had DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4 before HDMI 2.0 and the capacity of much increased over its level € “to about 48 Gbps. The new DisplayPort will have a fairly long delay against the HDMI 2.1 competitor, but it will have better capabilities
