As displays’ resolutions and refresh rates increase, the bandwidth requirement for the video standard (e.g HDMI and DisplayPort) will increase. Today, VESA announces the version 2.0 of the DisplayPort, which aims to offer more performance and supports to higher resolution displays.

The new DisplayPort 2.0 will have about 3 times more payload/usable bandwidth than older versions (DP 1.3/1.4). It can provide up to 77.4 Gbps of bandwidth, compared to only 25.92 Gbps previously. It is also more efficient, which has less wasted bandwidth. This allows it to support 8K (7680 x 4320) HDR-10 video at 60 Hz and 4K (3840×2160) at 144 Hz.

With Display Stream Compression (DSC), DisplayPort 2.0 will able to push a single 16K (15360×8460) display at 60 Hz in HDR, two 8K displays at 120 Hz in HDR or three 10K (10240×4320) displays at 60 Hz in HDR. Users can choose to connect their displays through either native DP connectors or USB Type-C connectors.
