Count in ATI, NVIDIA, Philips, Samsung and more

Several weeks ago DailyTech reported about all the big manufacturers joining together to support DisplayPort, the next major standard in digital display interfaces. Consumers are more than just slightly frustrated about the number of potential standards. Besides, Dell, HP and Lenovo, graphics companies are now vouching support for DisplayPort.

ATI spoke to reporters this week and confirmed that it will be developing GPUs with DisplayPort support. Graphics chips with the new standard will start to be introduced sometime in early 2007 says ATI. Currently, companies that design transmitters, such as Silicon Image are also working on DisplayPort-compliant devices.

Besides ATI, NVIDIA has also put in its support for DisplayPort. Other consumer electronics companies such Philips and Samsung are also supporting the new standard. ATI representatives say DisplayPort will become the next major standard due to its high-bandwidth and low latency capabilities. Technically, DisplayPort takes on some other features of HDMI, which is based on DVI but also has lines to carry a multi-channel audio signal. DisplayPort too will also be able to carry audio as well as a high-bandwidth signal that will be able to display an image with a higher resolution than even dual-link DVI (2560x1600).

DailyTech previously reported about the new UDI standard which is suppose to replace DVI, and several other interfaces. UDI was last reported to be the next design that would unify digital displays interfaces. So far however, it appears as though DisplayPort has the majority support from the industry.
