Samsung DisplayPort LCD

Claiming to have established a new first, Samsung today said it had become the first display maker to have produced its own LCD with a DisplayPort interface. A new, 30-inch screen by the company uses the extremely high 10.8Gbps bandwidth of the new video connector to display a full 2560x1600 resolution picture without resorting to dual links. The screen includes a new Genesis chipset that could bring the display even higher to 10 bits per pixel, or one billion colors -- a feat that would require three DVI connections, Samsung says.

The unnamed display is also based on Samsung's S-PVA panel technology and should still be viewable at the most extreme angles while still offering a 300-nit brightness level. This use of practical hardware will lead to an eventual commercial model, according to Samsung. Although a prototype, the 30-inch display will eventually reach mass production during spring of 2008, with finished displays following soon afterwards. Smaller screen sizes are also likely but were not discussed by Samsung during today's announcement.
