DISPLAYPORT AND HDMI will be the contenders to succeed the DVI standard. Displayport is backed up by the industry body VESA as a standard bearer and companies like AMD, Dell, HP, Nvidia, Philips, Samsung and many more back it.

Dell's line-up of monitors for 2008 (2x08) ia expected to feature Displayport as one of the connectors, but for starters Samsung is the company that has puts its stake into the potential gold yielding lode.

Its 30-inch monitor sports a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels at 10-bits of colour depth (1.07bn), something that should require at least three single-link DVI or four LVDS interface chips.

The screen used for this monitor is S-PVA with a 180 degree viewing angle, 300cd/m2 of brightness and 6ms response time. This monitor will enter mass production in Q2'08, but there's no indication of the price, as yet.

The crazy Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January next year will show who has a jugular unpierced and whose head will stand up proud. µ
