DisplayPort 2.0 comes with beyond-8K support

Written by James Delahunty @ 26 Jun 2019 9:27

DisplayPort 2.0 comes with beyond-8K support DisplayPort has gotten its first major update since March 2016, bringing support for beyond 8K resolution video at high refresh rates.
The new DisplayPort 2.0 triples the video bandwidth performance compared to DisplayPort 1.4a, from 25.92 Gbps to 77.37 Gbps. This enables the new DisplayPort revision to deliver beyond 8K resolutions at high refresh rates, and support for high-dynamic range.

Additionally, DisplayPort 2.0 brings improved support for multiple display configurations, as well as improved user experience with augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) displays, including support for 4K-and-beyond VR resolutions.

As with the previous iteration, DisplayPort 2.0 functions either over a USB-C connector, or the native DP connector.

DP 2.0 is backward compatible with previous versions of DisplayPort and incorporates all of the key features of DP 1.4a, including support for visually lossless Display Stream Compression (DSC) with Forward Error Correction (FEC), HDR metadata transport, and other advanced features.



DisplayPort 2.0 Configuration Examples

Single display resolutions:
  • One 16K (153608460) display @60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC)
  • One 10K (102404320) display @60Hz and 24 bpp 4:4:4 (no compression)
Dual display resolutions:
  • Two 8K (76804320) displays @120Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC)
  • Two 4K (38402160) displays @144Hz and 24 bpp 4:4:4 (no compression)
Triple display resolutions:
  • Three 10K (102404320) displays @60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC)
  • Three 4K (38402160) displays @90Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (no compression)
