First DisplayPort 2.0 devices pass certification

10 May 2022 | Rasmus Larsen |

AMD, MediaTek and Realtek are the first three companies to have devices or solutions certified for DisplayPort 2.0, which offer much higher bandwidth than HDMI 2.1.

DisplayPort 2.0 was announced in June 2019 with nearly 3x the bandwidth of DisplayPort 1.4 for uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K 240Hz HDR, two 4K 120Hz HDR or four 4K 60Hz HDR displays through a single cable. It even supports 16K60 through Display Stream Compression (DSC).

DisplayPort 2.0 offer up to 80 Gbps bandwidth, which is far higher than the 48 Gbps of HDMI 2.1 (FRL).

AMD, MediaTek and Realtek

We have yet to see the first DisplayPort 2.0 enabled devices but that will change soon as three manufacturers have passed DisplayPort 2.0 certification. Specifically AMD with the Ryzen 6000 series, MediaTek with an unspecified device, and Realtek with its Tx and Rx solutions for partners. - "We are delighted to continue our deep collaboration with VESA on developing the DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR ecosystem through use of AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processor as a certified reference source device," said Syed Athar Hussain, VESA board vice-chairman and AMD CVP and display domain senior fellow. - "We are very proud to be the first DisplayPort adopter to achieve DisplayPort UHBR certification for a sink device," said Vince Hu, corporate VP and GM, Compute Business Unit, MediaTek Inc. - "We are proud to announce that our first DisplayPort 2.0 Rx solution and DisplayPort 2.0 Tx solution have passed VESA’s UHBR Certification Program," said Yee-Wei Huang, VP of Multimedia Business Group, Realtek. The first displays with DisplayPort 2.0 ports should follow sometime in the near future as the certification program is now active. - "These latest developments in the DisplayPort UHBR Certification Program represent major steps forward in the roll-out of the DisplayPort UHBR ecosystem for new video, display and cable products supporting higher resolutions and refresh rates," stated James Choate, compliance program manager for VESA. "Certification of UHBR reference devices must undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet the requirements outlined in the DisplayPort 2.0 CTS. We’re excited to announce that a set of reference silicon has been verified to meet the requirements of the DisplayPort 2.0 spec through our certification program. VESA now has the testing infrastructure in place to evaluate and certify OEM end products, and we are ready to work with the ecosystem to bring next-generation DisplayPort chipsets and IP to market."
