Top companies such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and others have stated to support the standard. Taking a step forward in the industry's move to DisplayPort, AMD recently announced reports of successful interoperability testing of a next-generation graphics processor with a native DisplayPort 1.1 transmitter. AMD expects to ship the first ATI Radeon graphics sporting the new interface in the early 2008 timeframe.
"AMD has been driving the high-definition transition on the PC with innovative firsts such as integrated HDMI, high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) and our Unified Video Decoder (UVD)," said AMD’s Imi Mosaheb. "We are once again breaking new ground in customer-centric innovation by offering increased choice in video and display technologies to our users."
DisplayPort aims to unify and standardize display across the desktop and notebook computing environments through a common high-bandwidth interconnect. Samsung Electronics has already announced that will begin production of the world's first LCD monitor to feature the DisplayPort interface in Q2 2008.
