    Samsung Electronics has developed what it claims is the industry's first liquid-crystal display panel with a DisplayPort interface. DisplayPort processes 2560x1600 pixels of graphics data at up to 10 bits of color depth, or 1.07 billion colors. The interface is intended as a replacement for the Digital Visual Interface (DVI), Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) and, eventually, VGA standards. It supports both internal notebook PCs and external connector links between PCs and monitors. Samsung's DisplayPort-enabled 30-inch LCD was a joint undertaking with Genesis Microchip Inc. It requires a single DisplayPort interface, instead of the two DVI ports now used. The new LCD also taps the company's proprietary S-PVA liquid-crystal technology to enable a 180-degree viewing angle and 300 nits of brightness. Mass production is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2008.

    Not the first 30" out there, but sounds like a very nice one.

    It's actually not 'two DVI ports' used, but 'Dual Link DVI' which basically means, two DVI lanes through one cable which is necessary for monitors over 2.3 MP.

    Yeah, I was confused when the news story said two dvi ports. I know some cards have two dvi ports but some arent the dual link variety.



    My question is, what will use this? Are there Graphics Cards with Display port connectors on them?

    Are there any hdtv receivers out with these ports on them?
