As a result, DisplayPort 2. 0 is the first standard to support 8K resolution at 60 Hz refresh rate with full-color 4:4:4 resolution. "DP 2. 0 represents one of our most significant milestones in the history of DisplayPort, and is the culmination of several years’ effort and major enhancements to this ubiquitous standard," said VESA Board Chair Alan Kobayashi.
It’s the standard’s first major update since 2016, and it will provide up to a threefold increase in bandwidth over the previous version.
