AMD demonstrate native DisplayPort GPU
AMD’s next-gen GPU was output through the DisplayPort interface and into a Genesis Microchip DisplayPort receiver. Samsung is among many manufacturers to incorporate the chip into their new displays, with a new 30″ display already announced. Dell is also planning on releasing an array of DisplayPort panels also.
AMD’s DisplayPort products are scheduled for 2008 – the R700 is one of the early suspects. Meanwhile, Intel also plans on releasing their Eaglelake-G chipsets supporting DisplayPort in 2008.
As one of the founding members of the DisplayPort promoter group, and a very active VESA member, AMD has played a valuable role for more than four years now in the specification development of the DisplayPort interface. We congratulate AMD on achieving this tremendous milestone so soon after DisplayPort version 1.1 was ratified in April.
