The DisplayPort 2.0 specification was announced in June 2019 and offers triple the bandwidth versus DisplayPort 1.4a. This results in support for 4K 240Hz or 8K 85Hz without having to use compression which is better than what's possible with HDMI 2.1.

The first display with DisplayPort 2.0 were supposed to arrive towards the end of 2020 but unfortunately there's a big delay. In a statement provided to The Verge, VESA says devices won't hit the market until the end of this year.
“Monitors supporting DisplayPort 2.0 are currently in development, but none have been released to market yet,” explains a VESA spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “DisplayPort 2.0 is working now in new system chips that should appear in products later in 2021.”
As is typical these days, the COVID-19 pandemic is blamed for the delay. It's also unknown when we can expect the first video cards with DisplayPort 2.0 support. It's unknown whether this standard will be supported by AMD's or NVIDIA's next architecture.
