FPGAs and SoCs for DisplayPort 2.1 and 8K Video
The AMD UltraScale+ FPGA and AMD Versal Adaptive SoC product families have become the industry's first FPGA and Adaptive SoC implementations compliant with the VESA DisplayPort 2.1 standard.
The new AMD DisplayPort 2.1 subsystem enables the AMD UltraScale+ FPGA and Versal architectures to receive, process and transmit 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels) Ultra High Definition (UHD) video. Manufacturers of professional audiovisual and broadcast equipment can easily integrate and upgrade their equipment, such as cameras, professional displays, LED video walls, projectors, KVMs and broadcast infrastructures, to process 8K UHD video.
8K, the latest standard for Ultra HD video, offers four times the resolution of 4K and sixteen times the resolution of Full HD, gaining traction in a wide range of professional AV, broadcast media and consumer electronics applications. DisplayPort 2.1, with a total bandwidth of nearly 80Gbps, is up to three times that of DisplayPort 1.4, providing higher display resolution, deeper color depth, and higher resolution for 8K Ultra HD video resolution, deeper color depth, and higher refresh rates for 8K Ultra HD video.
Just as the AMD Radeon PRO W7900, AMD Radeon PRO W7800 and Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards were the industry's first to support DisplayPort 2.1, enabling up to 8K experiences on high-end workstations and gaming PCs, AMD customers can now deploy endpoints with AMD Radeon graphics cards, AMD customers can now deploy end-to-end solutions using AMD Radeon graphics, AMD UltraScale+ FPGAs and AMD Versal Adaptive SoCs to deliver high-quality 8K experiences.
AMD will make its first public demonstration of the DisplayPort 2.1 IP subsystem at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2024, which kicks off on January 30, 2024 in Barcelona.
