DisplayPort is a universal interface specification designed for internal and external system solutions that reduce device complexity by significantly improving performance for high bandwidth audio and video data transfer over one cable.
The need for LVDS electronics is removed, which allows for a significantly smaller form factor in notebooks and LCD displays. Connectors are designed in conjunction with VESA DisplayPort 1.1a standards to be used primarily within the notebook and PC markets and are considered, "The HDMI connector, of the PC World.".
