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.

What a waste...

Displayport....really? With the integration of HDMI everywhere, thats like someone coming out with a television that doesn't have a coaxial input but an alternative that might be slightly better. Seriously HDMI and DVI are set in stone. Thats like someone coming out with Betamax II in the '90s to compete with the VCR. If Displayport is like a LOT better than HDMI then I would consider it, but I'm sure companies will just come out with some sort of adapter to make it compatible with DVI/HDMI televisions/computers/receivers.

HDMI is DVI with audio. They can be considered the same thing.
