Apple`s mini DisplayPort added to Vesa standard
Proprietary no longer
by Tony Smith
Now Vesa has published a Mini DisplayPort (mDP) specification as an adjunct to DIsplayPort 1.1a, the revise version of the spec released back in January 2008.
mDP will be incorporated into DisplayPort 1.2 which doubles the link`s bandwidth to 21.6Gb/s – 5.4Gb/s per lane – used to support higher resolutions, faster refresh rates, more colours and multiple monitors – two 2560 x 1600 monitors, or four 1920 x 1200 screens, for example – through a single feed.
Stereoscopic imaging support is also expected to be incorporated into the spec to pave the way for 3D monitors operating at resolutions higher than 1080p at 120Hz.
