Production of new 2560 x 1600 with DisplayPort to enter production next year

Samsung’s latest 30-inch LCD panel sports a DisplayPort interface. The new Samsung panel can process 10 bits of color depth with 2560 x 1600 resolutions via a single DisplayPort interface. Current high-resolution 30-inch displays required dual-link DVI ports to drive such high resolutions.

Samsung collaborated with Genesis Microchip Inc. to develop the 30-inch display with DisplayPort. The new DisplayPort compatible display features a Samsung Super Patterned, Vertical Alignment, or S-PVA, display with 300 nits of brightness. The panel also features a 180-degree viewing angle.

"We have received many inquiries from computer integrators interested in DisplayPort-based LCD panels, which prompted an acceleration of our R&D for this first DisplayPort LCD panel," said Brian Berkeley, vice president of Samsung's LCD business, in a statement to EETimes.

The Video Electronics Standards Association, or VESA, previously approved the DisplayPort 1.1 standard last April. DisplayPort is set to replace LVDS, DVI and VGA interfaces for computer displays. Other DisplayPort supporters include AMD, NVIDIA, HP, Intel and Lenovo. Dell plans to offer DisplayPort-equipped displays later this year. Intel plans to integrate a native DisplayPort interface in its next-generation Eaglelake chipset.

Converter?

I suppose a converter would be needed until video cards start showing up with DisplayPort connectors. Are those converters being included with the monitors?

Well the issue there really is that Display Port and DVI aren't electrically compatible, I mean HDMI and DVI are almost one of the same, bar a few difference that makes HDMI better for T.Vs and general home theatre systems.

So it's not like you could juat have a wire which at one end had some DVI or HDMI connector and at the other had a DisplayPort connector (or at least to the best of my knowledge). You'd need something in between that actually took and input and transformed it to something else.

Most likely, especially give that it's a Samsung monitor (good experience with them), is it will have Display Port and DVI dual-link. Or of course it just be bundled in to deals with a computer specially outfitted with DisplayPort.

It always strikes me as odd that DisplayPort is so little touted by companies yet when you look at the list of some of the companies that support it:

"AMD, Intel, Dell, Genesis Microchip, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Molex, NVIDIA, Philips, Samsung, Analogix, and Tyco Electronics."

It seems somewhat inevitable.

Well that's too bad because from what I read before DisplayPort uses less electronics thus allows for thinner panels. If you have to stick DVI in there also, you just negated this advantage.
