AMD, founded in 1969, works in high performance computing, advancing data center, embedded, gaming, and PC markets. Founded in Silicon Valley, it has made significant industry firsts and technological achievements.
AMD has introduced industry-first FPGAs and adaptive SoCs that conform to the DisplayPort™ 2.1 8K Video Standard.
AMD UltraScale+ FPGAs and AMD Versal™ adaptive SoC product families are the first in the industry to conform to the VESA DisplayPort 2.1 standard, allowing them to receive, process, and transmit 8K ultra-high-definition video, enabling easy integration and upgrading of professional AV and broadcast equipment.
AMD UltraScale+™ FPGAs and AMD Versal™ adaptive SoC product families have become the industry’s first FPGA and adaptive SoC implementations to conform to the VESA DisplayPort 2.1 standard.
The new AMD DisplayPort 2.1 Subsystem enables AMD UltraScale+ FPGAs and Versal architecture to receive, process and transmit 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels) ultra-high-definition (UHD) video. Pro AV and broadcast equipment manufacturers can easily integrate and upgrade their equipment, such as cameras, professional monitors, LED video walls, projectors, KVMs, and broadcast infrastructure, to handle 8K UHD video.
8K has emerged as the latest standard in UHD video, offering four times the resolution of 4K and sixteen times the resolution of Full HD, gaining traction among a broad spectrum of professional AV, broadcast media, and consumer electronics applications. With total bandwidth of nearly 80Gbps, up to 3x that of DisplayPort 1.4, DisplayPort 2.1 enables higher display resolutions, deeper color depths and higher refresh rates for 8K UHD 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 an end-to-end solution using AMD Radeon graphics cards with AMD UltraScale+ FPGAs and AMD Versal adaptive SoCs to deliver a high quality 8K experience.
AMD will showcase the DisplayPort 2.1 IP Subsystem with the first public demonstration of this technology at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2024 (AMD stand: 5D150), kicking off on January 30 in Barcelona.
