AMD's New Graphics Processors Feature Native DisplayPort 1.1

AMD reports of successful interoperability testing of a next-generation graphics processor with a native DisplayPort 1.1 transmitter. The testing was completed with a Genesis Microchip DisplayPort receiver. AMD is currently attending the Video and Electronics Standards Association PlugTest in Milpitas, California to undergo further interoperability testing. DisplayPort aims to unify and standardize display across the desktop and notebook computing environments through a common high-bandwidth interconnect.

As the first graphics processor provider to demonstrate and support DisplayPort, AMD builds on its successful track record of digital video and display innovation on the graphics processor. ATI Radeon graphics were first to integrate other display technologies such as HDMI and DVI. DisplayPort interfaces are expected to be natively supported in ATI Radeon graphics processors in the early 2008 timeframe. DisplayPort is an interface designed to be scalable and allow for true unification of display interfaces. DisplayPort supports both external connections, such as a display to a PC or TV, as well as embedded interface applications, such as inside a notebook PC.
