AMD DockPort adds USB 3.0 and power to DisplayPort

Posted on Wednesday, February 12 2014 @ 14:04:27 CET by

AMD is promoting its new DockPort technology at YouTube. The new port shares a lot in common with AMD's Lightning Bolt, the Intel Thunderbolt rival that was shown off a year or two ago.

The new DockPort is a royalty-free extension to the DisplayPort specification that promises to be cheaper than Thunderbolt. DockPort uses passive cables and allows DisplayPort cables to carry USB 3.0 connectivity and power alongside display signals. Support for Mini Displayport connectors is also included.

The first DockPort products may arrive in the second half of this year.
AMD's versatile DockPort connection opens up a world of possibilities, like a portable hub where you can charge, transform, accessorize and otherwise connect your device in an all-in-one solution, reducing cable clutter and bringing data and display connectivity to your notebook or tablet via a single, DockPort supported DisplayPort link.
