Latest News: DisplayPort 2.0 monitors are delayed until later this year


The coronavirus pandemic is responsible 

Monitors supporting DisplayPort 2.0 technology are delayed, with the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) now expecting devices to ship later this year. DisplayPort 2.0 monitors were initially expected to be released in late 2020.

It’s been almost two years since specifications were announced for DisplayPort 2.0, which is predicted to supply some significant improvements over its predecessor DisplayPort 1.4. Notably, because DisplayPort 2.0 is in a position to manage nearly triple the bandwidth of DisplayPort 1.4, it can support much higher resolutions – whilst high as 16K at 60Hz.

However, the thrill surrounding the technology will need to be tempered for the nonce, as VESA although has confirmed that monitors boasting DisplayPort 2.0 tech are in development, no concrete release dates are announced.


Display delay

Reportedly, the coronavirus pandemic is responsible for the delay to the DisplayPort 2.0 releases, preventing hardware engineers from getting together to conduct interoperability tests. 

VESA’s next PlugTest event, which should allow the DisplayPort rollout to realize some momentum again, is scheduled for the spring of this year.

As well as promising higher resolutions, DisplayPort 2.0 also will offer enhanced refresh rates and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support without compression. HDR will enable monitors to display a broader spectrum of colors and contrasts, which is probably going to be especially welcomed by avid gamers.

In addition to the discharge of DisplayPort 2.0, whenever it may be, the monitor space features a number of other exciting developments emerging. HDMI 2.1 monitors are shooting up with increasing regularity and USB-C monitors are now on the market. 

All the newest display technology releases are on show at this year’s CES 2021 event, which happened earlier in the week.
