AMD/ATI gets HD DisplayPort certified

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced that the Radeon HD 3000 series of graphics cards and AMD-based 780G-based motherboards are the first products to receive DisplayPort certification.

The press release sent to journalists wasn’t a big surprise , since AMD is a member of the organization. Dell, by the way, is currently the only company in the business that offers display products that support both DisplayPort and HDMI (3008WFP and 2408WFP LCDs). However, there is a lack of PCs that actually could connect to the DisplayPort interface as well.

In fairness, we have to mention that the certification does not mean that these are the first DisplayPort products on the market. Gainward was the first company to offer such a product with a Nvidia GeForce-based 9600GT (512MB) graphics card that comes with a DisplayPort/HDMI combination. (link)
