Displayport: A Better Video Interface

DisplayPort is a powerful interface that has become more ubiquitous and versatile than people realize. It was designed to replace VGA and DVI and has all the capabilities of HDMI but without legacy issues. DisplayPort sends data in packets, making it more flexible than other interfaces. It also has cool features like Multi-Stream Transport (MST) which allows for multiple video streams within a single link. DisplayPort is not only used in external monitors, but also in laptop internal displays, USB-C port display support, docking stations, and Thunderbolt. Unlike HDMI, DisplayPort is not burdened by restrictions and is more hacker-friendly. It also offers easy compatibility with HDMI through DP++. Overall, DisplayPort is a friendly and versatile interface that is worth paying attention to.
