"VESA is unveiling the biggest update to its DisplayPort PC display standard since it was first ratified back in 2007. The new DisplayPort 2.0 specification, which is expected to arrive on monitors in late 2020, includes bandwidth support for 8K displays and beyond. This new bandwidth, at 80Gbps max, is nearly three times what was available in the previous DisplayPort 1.4 spec, and it means you’ll be able to run a gaming monitor at 4K / 144Hz with HDR support, or two 8K dispalys at 120Hz with HDR. Here’s what VESA envisions for the future:"
Single display resolutions:
One 16K (15360x8460) display 6 60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC)
One 10K (10240x4320) display 6 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 6 60Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (with DSC)
Three 4K (3840x2160) displays @90Hz and 30 bpp 4:4:4 HDR (no compression)
Now recently there was a thread where some people were questioning, how Sony was able to show GT running at 8k 120fps, and I shook my head, because I don't know why we always limit ourselves to current spec...."I said to myself, don't these guys know DisplayPort 2.0 is coming and even HDMI has plans to up their spec technology"...….PCIE4.0 has not even launched yet, but PCIE 5.0 is already specced out......That's how technology works.....In late 2020 on the verge of many new consoles, new GPU's, it's actual a prime and the right time to launch the new cable spec standard.......Sony has a knack of always putting in the latest technology and ports in it's console day and date, so there's no doubt that PS5 will come with display port 2.0 as well....
