DisplayPort

A digital display interface developed by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). At first glance the connectors look like HDMI, but it is designed to cover a wide range of image standards, carries packetized data and typically connects a computer to a screen. It can also carry audio and other data. In 2006 version 1 offered up to 8.64 Gb/s data over a 2-meter cable. Capabilities have grown and now V 1.3 offers an overall bandwidth of 32.4 Gb/s – enough to carry up to 5K (5120 x 2880) RGB, and 8K UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 sampling. It also has an HDMI 2.0 compatibility mode.
