DisplayPort 1.2 doubles bandwidth, enables Stereoscopic 3D

Posted on Friday, January 16 2009 @ 00:05:43 CET by

FUD Zilla talks about DisplayPort 1.2, this new standard will double the bandwidth to 5.4Gbit/s and will enable 120Hz stereoscopic 3D imagery at a resolution of 1920 x 1080p.

For notebook users there's also a little gem: the mini-DisplayPort connector. This is a smaller version of the interface, it's only 10 percent the size of a full DVI connector.
According to Register Hardware, VESA is set to publish its new DisplayPort 1.2 specification by the middle of the year. Among the interface's central improvements include a doubling of available bandwidth to 5.4 Gbit/s. As a result, this should provide sufficient throughput for 120Hz stereoscopic 3D imagery at 1920 x 1080, or four standard 1920 x 1200 screens. However, VESA anticipates multi-display setups to be linked in a daisy-chain fashion rather than through a four-way split cable.

Although DisplayPort does lacks xvYCC color space support in contrast to HDMI, the increased bandwidth in the 1.2 specification will also allow 3840 x 2160 resolutions to be reached with a color depth of 30 bits per pixel.

Very soon, laptop vendors will be able to implement the interface in upcoming lineups with the mini-DisplayPort connector. According to Apple, the smaller version of the interface is 10% the size of a full DVI connector. As a result, there is more free space inside a laptop and on its sides.
