The DisplayPort 2.0 standard is finally going to be implemented

After months of delay, the DisplayPort 2.0 standard is finally going to be implemented. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) said it will adopt a new certification program to ensure customers can tell if a cable or device supports the standard.

According to reports, DisplayPort 2.0 supports DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra High Bit Rate) data transmission. In order to distinguish the specifications, VESA has introduced new DP40 and DP80 UHBR cables.

Cables marked with DP40 will support the UHBR10 standard (up to 10Gbps) on four lanes for a total of 40Gbps;

Cables marked DP80 will support the UHBR20 standard (up to 20Gbps) on four lanes for a total of 80Gbps.

VESA says cables supporting full-size DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort for the DP40 and DP80 standards are in production, and the first monitors and other devices have passed certification testing.

The confusion of the HDMI 2.1 standard has caused many accusations, and all new functions and features related to the standard are optional and need to be explained separately. This means that all new devices can be marked with HDMI 2.1, and users who are unaware of the change won't be able to get the right device they want.
