13 Dec 2010 | Rasmus Larsen |

Analog connectors are now officially being phased out. Intel has announced they have teamed up with AMD, Dell, Samsung, LG and Lenovo to phase out analogue connections, and only support digital connectors such as HDMI and DisplayPort. This also means that the popular, blue VGA (D-SUB) connector is heading for the grave.<br /><br /><h3>Analog connectors phased out</h3>Intel has teamed up with AMD, Dell, Samsung, LG and Lenovo in a mission to phase out analog connectors such as D-SUB (VGA). In a few years only digital connectors will be supported in devices such as TVs, PC monitors, TV boxes, notebooks and stand-alone PCs.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src=pictures/vgaout.jpg><br><i>The popular VGA connector is heading for the grave</i></p><br />Besides the VGA connector other analog connections such as s-video, component and composite are expected to follow the same road. Instead digital connections such as HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort will shape the future. <br /><br />Digital connectors have a number of advantages over analogue connectors such as virtually no less in quality, two-way communication, separation sound and image, etc.<br /><br /><h3>Will take some time</h3>Tthe change is not effective as of today. Intel says that it’s a long process and Intel hope to complete the phase out process by 2015. However, Intel also adds that VGA connecters will probably remain in use for some PC monitors beyond 2015.<br /><br /> <p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/displayporthdmi-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/displayporthdmi-1.jpg" alt="DisplayPort and HDMI is the future" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>DisplayPort and HDMI is the future according to AMD</i></p><br />Intel is an important player in the market because they – besides PC graphic cards - manufacture internal picture circuit boards for screens and external boxes.<br /><br />AMD says that they believe DisplayPort will become a standard connector platform for PC monitors and that HDMI will remain the widely supported standard for flat panel TVs.
