    “ZOTAC is ready to manufacture and ship DisplayPort equipped products, such as those based on NVIDIA's GeForce 8800GT,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd. “We will release the DisplayPort equipped products into the channel next year when DisplayPort monitors are released and consumers are ready to embrace the new standard.”

    ZOTAC DisplayPort equipped products will maintain compatibility with existing DVI and VGA standards for users with existing DVI or VGA capable displays. Although ZOTAC graphics cards will feature native DisplayPort interfaces, bundled DisplayPort-to-DVI or DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapters will be included to maintain dual DVI or HDMI outputs.

    DisplayPort technology is the next-generation display interface technology set to replace DVI, VGA and LVDS standards to unify the three PC analog and digital video standards into a single digital standard.

    General details
    • ZOTAC commits to DisplayPort technology
    • DisplayPort equipped products ready to go
    • Will ship DisplayPort NVIDIA-based graphics cards when customers demand
    • DisplayPort equipped graphics cards will maintain DVI and HDMI compatibility with adapters

    this is great but this part sounds more like an ad than news.

    "ZOTAC International is a part of PC Partner Ltd. Group.

    well at least now I know about ZOTAC. and obviously we can expect all other board makers (BFG, e-vga,) to bring out displayport equipped cards when there is demand as well.
    Weer says thanks.

    Sorry, I know what they wanted (if) to say, but the result is "ZOTAC is also one of the largest NVIDIA add-in board and motherboard manufacturers in the world with over 10 years of quality manufacturing experience". I work in the IT for some looong years and I am used with this "tricks" in the news releases... But still...

    But is it a viable alternative to DVI when you're not doing resolutions above 1900x1200?

    Blue PCB? That's not typical Zotac...

    It's also free : "Open and extensible standard to help with broad adoption."

    You need to pay to implement hdmi connector on your products, well, I think so.

    Yes, because like HDMI, it can carry audio. It can also have daisy chaining as a feature.
