VESA DisplayPort 1.2: Adds Mini DisplayPort, Stereoscopic 3D

DisplayPort is getting a lot of attention lately, thanks mostly to Apple though Dell has been pushing DisplayPort for a long time. VESA will be adding Apple’s Mini DisplayPort and stereoscopic 3D into the DisplayPort 1.2 specifications, which will be finalized and published in mid-2009. Stereoscopic 3D requires quite a bit more bandwidth so that will increase to 5.4Gbps. With increased bandwidth comes a ton more pixel pushing capability: four 1920 x 1200 displays, one 3840 x 2160 display or one 1920 x 1080 (I’m assuming 1920 x 1200 will work too) stereoscopic 3D display.
