Display interface comparison-the advantage and disadvantage of HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.4.

- Dec 29, 2020-

At present, DP 1.4 is the strongest video output port in the field of civilian consumption, and because it has been launched for a long time, the general usage rate is relatively high. It is usually right to prefer the DP interface. After all, the performance of the same generation is stronger; HDMI is also a good choice without DP. Please refer to the product manual for details.

However, in 2017, the HDMI 2.1 standard was formally proposed: 42.6Gbps bandwidth, maximum support for 10K (10240*5400) resolution output, and support for dynamic HDR and DSC display compression streams, from the perspective of parameters, it can support all the mainstream currently on the market Of consumer-grade display devices.

DP is not too much, the new DP 2.0 version parameters are even more terrifying: 77.37 Gbps of terrible bandwidth, up to 16K (15360*8460) 60Hz output, and supports HDR 10. In summary, it is invincible.

But at present, the industrial standard of HDMI 2.1 has taken shape and entered the stage of quantitative production; and DP 2.0 has not yet been seen except for the parameters.

But if conditions permit, please never use DVI or even VGA interface products, especially VGA. The invisible strobe caused by analog signals will affect your eyesight.

Be nice to yourself in the digital age.

Please also note that the high-quality output of the interface also needs to support the three aspects of "host-cable-display" at the same time, otherwise it will bring display effects. I will help you summarize a table to compare the pros and cons of HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.4.
