It is reported that the DisplayPort 2.0 standard will finally be implemented. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) said it will adopt a new certification program to ensure customers can tell if a cable or device supports the standard.

According to reports, DisplayPort 2.0 supports DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra High Bit Rate) data transmission. In order to distinguish the specifications, VESA has introduced new DP40 and DP80 UHBR cables.

     ◆ Cables marked with DP40 will support the UHBR10 standard on four lanes (up to 10Gbps) for a total of 40Gbps;

     ◆ Cables marked with DP80 will support the UHBR20 standard (up to 20Gbps) on four lanes for a total of 80Gbps.

     VESA says cables supporting full-size DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort for the DP40 and DP80 standards are in production, and the first monitors and other devices have passed certification testing.

The confusion surrounding the HDMI 2.1 standard has led to many accusations that all new functions and features related to the standard are optional and need to be explained separately. This means that all new devices can be marked with HDMI 2.1, and users who are unaware of the change won’t be able to properly buy what they want.


And now Smartavlink have launched Display Port DP2.0 40Gbps Full Size DP40 Cable with following key features:

  1. Support VESA DisplayPort 2.0 DP40
  2. Support UHBR10 link Rate (10 Gigabits per sencond or Gbps) defined by DisplayPort 2.0
  3. Support full 4 lanes operation, 10Gbps per lane, total 40Gbps with 4 lanes
  4. Support 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K@144Hz HDR
  5. Support max length to 100m
