New DisplayPort 1.4 with USB Type-C’s blazing speed

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has published the latest version of New DiplayPort 1.4 the transfer protocol. Whereas version 1.3 focused pretty heavily on 4K in 2014, 1.4 is more about providing lossless compression and further leveraging relatively new connection methods like USB Type-C.

New DisplayPort will be able to handle lot of information at once like 8K @ 60Hz HDR with support for deep color and 4Kp120Hz with HDR and deep color. VESA says that the new version of its Display Stream Compression (1.2 for those keeping track at home) is visually lossless now and there’s bandwidth for 32 audio channels and ultra-high sampling rates.
