Display port pictured


IDF 2007: Possibly backward compatible

This year will be the year of Display port, the new VESA digital display interface. It is a licence free audio and video connection and will be used mainly as a connection between the display and the computer or the computer and a home entertainment system.

It wont be natively compatible with HDMI or DVI, but there will be a workaround to make it work, much like DVI can be connected to an HDMI or D-Sub display. 

This is what it looks like and everyone including Nvidia, ATI and Intel will go down the Display port road in 2008.
