VESA readies up DisplayPort 1.2 with much fatter bandwidth

VESA revealed a new spec for its DisplayPort interface at CES which it simply calls DisplayPort 1.2.

 

With the bandwidth being doubled to 21.8 Gbit/s (more than twice that of the current HDMI 1.4 standard), this allows DisplayPort 1.2 to handle 3D-signals, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD audiostreams and also USB 2.0 and network data with speeds of up to 720 Mbit/s.

Further to that is the ability to take on higher resolutions (up to 3840 x 2400 pixels) with superior color depths and increased refresh rates (2560 x 1600 pixels on a 120 Hz 3D-screen).

 

It's also worth noting that the new standard is backward compatible with the first DisplayPort spec so there won't be a need for new cables or connectors.
