Samsung Announces World's First LCD With DisplayPort


Samsung has announced another world’s first with a 30-inch LCD panel using a single DisplayPort, which will replace DVI, LVDS and VGA in upcoming Samsung LCDs. The next-gen interface outputs all your pretty pictures at 10.8Gbps, which allows for a 2560×1600 resolution or 1.07 billion colors without any visible lag. The DisplayPort panel utilizes a four-lane, 2.7Gbps/lane interface chip, while you’d normally need at least three DVI or four LVDS interface chips to achieve the same results. Samsung’s proprietary Super Patterned Vertical Alignment liquid crystal technology allows for a 180 degree viewing angle as well as 300nits brightness. Production is set for Q2 of 2008.
