DailyTech - The Future of HDMI
"Is 2007 the year of the display format wars? A look at the licensing structures of these formats reveals more
Unfortunately, consumers will be faced a total of three display standards in 2007 -- and even more in 2008. Along with HDMI, computers will start to ship with DisplayPort and the Universal Display Interface (UDI) this year. UDI is electrically compatible with DVI and HDMI, but does not carry the same licensing fees as either and has a stripped down feature set. DisplayPort is not compatible with any existing signaling format.
One of the primary concerns for these new standards is cost and interoperability. Expensive HDMI and HDCP certification is cited as one of the culprits delaying AMD 690G motherboards.
High fidelity signaling backers are split into two licensing camps: one supporting the DVI-derivatives (DVI-HDCP, HDMI, UDI) and the other supporting DisplayPort. AMD, Dell, Genesis Microchip, Hewlett-Packard, Molex, NVIDIA, Philips, Samsung and Tyco Electronics are supporters of DisplayPort; Hitachi, Panasonic, Philips, Sony, Silicon Image, Thomson and Toshiba compose the primary backers of HDMI. A significant portion of the DisplayPort supporters also have interests in HDMI. Earlier last year, several manufacturers including Sapphire and PowerColor announced HDMI-enabled graphics cards based on ATI GPUs. MSI also announced HDMI cards based on NVIDIA GPUs.
AMD is expected to launch DisplayPort compatible GPUs later this year with NVIDIA opting for the standard as well. Early last year, Silicon Image stated that UDI will end up replacing both HDMI and DVI standards on the PC when it becomes available to reduce licensing fees, though it will still be compatible with the older standards.

Flott, vi trengte virkelig et par nye standarder nå :P
Blir det samme opplegg på f.eks DisplayPort som HDMI med flere revisjoner (1.2 og 1.3) bare for å toppe hele driten?

Det fine med standarder er at man har så mange å velge mellom...
