HDMI is worse than DVI, I don't see why anyone would think otherwise.
Please do tell why?
HDMI and DVI are exactly the same bar the screws
because multiple companies lisence different adaptors from other companies plus there needs to be legacy support still, (****ing FDD and IDE on mobos)
Just come out with the displays using CAT5 cables and I'll be very happy. They are working on a standard using CAT5 for Video transmission.
I'm not really sure from where people get the idea that DisplayPort (DP) is easily backwards compatible with e.g. VGA. DP, like HDMI, is a purely digital interface. Sure, you can *convert* signals to (and possibly from) VGA, but not with a simple adapter. You need an active adapter for that, which costs a small fortune.
Right now, the only universally usable display connector is DVI-I. And yes, personally I'd much rather have DVI than HDMI or DP *because* of the screws.
To put it bluntly the connectors for HDMI and DP (and, like previously mentioned, SATA) are designed by idiots. It doesn't really help that there actually *is* a version of the HDMI connector with a locking mechanism ...for use in cars!
I just want my current monitor to be compatible for several more years ...
We seem to get on fine without screws on USB sockets so why do you need them on display port - the cable is a lot smaller than DVI cables so supporting the cable weight at the socket is less of an issue.
I still use a Mitsubishi CRT with a VGA interface. I've been using this wonderful beast since 2004 and would like to continue using it for another 6 years if possible, thanks Intel, et al.
So if LVDS is being phased out does this mean that laptop displays will finally be interchangeable, and mods/replacements will at last be much easier?
To have laptops with a simple Displayport connector, or at least compatible pin outs would be long overdue.
Nooo. I need PS/2 for my keyboards!!!
Oh well. I guess we need some modernization.
Bring in the new bios, get rid of all legacy support. Computer revolution (or more like a long needed evolution?)
We should just standardize DisplayPort on all computers. One connection is simpler. Less cost manufacturing all these different things -- looks untidy as well.
Why DP and HDMI...
Wouldn't just HDMI suffice?
DP is for professional monitors at the moment, DP is the only interface that supports 10 bit colour and 2560x1600 at 60Hz all at the same time.
HDMI Is for consumer televisions where as displayport is chip-to-chip for monitors. There are a LOT more benefits for use on computer monitor if you use DP over HDMI or DVI.
DVI can support 120hz and resolutions above 1920x1080.
Roll on the day when its just 1 universal connector rather than 6 different ones..
Uhhh, Mkay, HDMI1.4a:
upto 3840 × 2160
24 bit RGB/36 bit YUV, Deep Color 30, 36 und 48 bit RGB/YUV, xvYCC
Probably not at 120Hz though...
S*** there goes my screen.
That's incorrect; the HDMI standard has supported those parameters since at least version 1.3. DisplayPort does have a some of advantages, though, primarily that it is royalty-free.
HDBaseT is the future, NOT HDMI !
Aren't a lot of the cheaper flat panels still coming with VGA? I know that's what my 4 run off of.
Methinks this may be a bit premature
