DisplayPort, Market-Changing PC/Monitor Interface Debuts in 2008


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 2008 - Products with DisplayPort, a new PC/monitor interface technology are hitting the market this year and will chase competing technology DVI out of the market by 2011, reports In-Stat . DisplayPort products will be limited in number in 2008, but will grow to over 600 million products shipped in 2012, the high-tech market research firm says. DisplayPort will be the first universal, digital interface between PCs and LCD monitors.

“PC and LCD monitor vendors have been searching for this interface for several years,” says Brian O’Rourke, In-Stat analyst. “While VGA is universal in both markets, it is an older analog technology that is not equipped to handle the increasing resolutions of today’s computing environment. And digital visual interface (DVI), while capable of higher resolutions than VGA, uses older raster/scan technology, has limited bandwidth, and has never gained penetration into the majority of PCs shipped in any year.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

* DisplayPort-enabled devices will grow at an annual rate of 243% from 2008 to 2012.
* DisplayPort provides 10.8Gbps data rates, micro-packet architecture, and a scalable design that promises increased data rates in the future.
