Hot Hardware got a bit of show-and-tell for you today. You might recall recent announcements of a new digital display interface, dubbed DisplayPort by VESA, the Video Electronics Standards Association. This new interface will supplant DVI and VGA connections eventually as its micropacket architecture offers significantly more bandwidth with multi-monitor support over a single cable.

They've got an as yet unreleased DisplayPort-equipped RV635 XT board here and have been testing it out on an also unreleased LCD panel that they'll be showing soon. On the board you'll note that the circuitry surrounding each DisplayPort connection is minimal and devoid of those all-too familiar Silicon Image TMDS chips. Head on over to the site and check it out...


The RV635 has a DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D port.

Check it out at Hot Hardware.
