DisplayPort 2.0 Supports Up to Two 8K Displays or One 16K Display, Rollout Expected to Begin in Late 2020

VESA today announced the release of DisplayPort 2.0, the first major update to the standard since DisplayPort 1.4 in March 2016. DisplayPort 2.0 has a max effective bandwidth of 77.4 Gbps, nearly triple that of DisplayPort 1.4, enabling support for displays with up to 16K resolution, higher refresh rates, HDR support at higher resolutions, improved support for multiple display configurations, and more. The increased bandwidth is the result of VESA leveraging Thunderbolt 3's physical layer. DisplayPort 2.0 is the first standard to support 8K resolution at a 60Hz refresh rate with full-color 4:4:4 resolution and HDR-10 support. DisplayPort 2.0 configuration examples via DisplayPort, USB-C, or Thunderbolt 3 ports, which will all support the new specification:Single display resolutions - One 16K (15360x8460) display @60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC) - One 10K (10240x4320) display @60Hz and 24 bpp 4:4:4 (no compression) Dual display resolutions - Two 8K (7680x4320) displays @120Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC) - Two 4K (3840x2160) displays @144Hz and 24 bpp 4:4:4 (no compression) Triple display resolutions - Three 10K (10240x4320) displays @60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC) - Three 4K (3840x2160) displays @90Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (no compression)DisplayPort 2.0 also supports VESA's new Panel Replay capability for improved power efficiency when connecting to high-resolution displays. VESA has made the DisplayPort 2.0 specification available to manufacturers and expects the first products incorporating the standard to appear on the market
