New DisplayPort 2.0 Video Standards Introduced

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA ®) has announced the release of version 2.0 of the DisplayPort (DP) audio video standard. DP 2.0 is the first major update to the DisplayPort standard since March 2016 and provides a 3x increase in data throughput compared to the previous DisplayPort version (DP 1.4a). It is possible to meet higher refresh rates that may appear in the future. This applies to resolutions higher than 8K, higher refresh rates, and support for dynamic range (HDR) via a cable connection. The advantages of DP 2.0 are both its native DP connector and USB Type-C connector, which transmits DP audio and video through the alternative DisplayPort mode . The highest bandwidth of the new interface is 77.37 Gb / s, which is 3 times higher than DisplayPort 1.4a. In addition to 8K resolution at 60 Hz with HDR support, DisplayPort 2.0 can use the following configurations: • One 16K display (15360×8460), 60 Hz, 30 bit / 4: 4: 4 color depth (Display Stream Compression) • One 10K display ( 10240×4320), 60 Hz, color depth 24 bit / 4: 4: 4 (without compression) • Two displays 8K (7680×4320), 120 Hz, color depth 30 bit / 4: 4: 4, HDR (Display Stream Compression compression) • Two displays 4K (3840×2160), 144 Hz, color depth 24 bit / 4: 4: 4 (without compression) • Three displays 10K (10240×4320), 60 Hz, color depth 30 bits / 4: 4: 4, HDR (compression Display Stream Compression) • Three 4K displays (3840×2160), 90 Hz, color depth 30 bit / 4: 4: 4, HDR (no compression) Except In addition, support for a system of three monitors with a resolution of 1440p is available. The new standard will support a cable solution with USB Type-C and DisplayPort connectors. The first serial products using the DisplayPort 2.0 standard will begin to be sold by the end of 2020.
