Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has announced the successful interoperability testing of its next-generation graphics processor with a native DisplayPort 1.1 transmitter. The testing was completed with a Genesis Microchip DisplayPort receiver.

"AMD has been driving the high-definition transition on the PC with innovative firsts such as integrated HDMI, high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) and our Unified Video Decoder (UVD)," said Rick Bergman, senior VP and general manager, graphics products group, AMD. "With the successful interoperability testing of the first graphics chip to feature a native DisplayPort transmitter, we are once again breaking new ground in customer-centric innovation by offering increased choice in video and display technologies to our users."

According to AMD, DisplayPort interfaces are expected to be natively supported in its ATI Radeon graphics processors in early 2008.

A breakthrough technology, DisplayPort, aims to unify and standardise display across the desktop and notebook computing environments through a common high-bandwidth interconnect.

The DisplayPort interface is designed to be scalable and allow for true unification of display interfaces. DisplayPort supports both external connections, such as a display to a PC or TV, as well as embedded interface applications, such as inside a notebook PC.

AMD is currently attending the Video and Electronics Standards Association (VESA) PlugTest in Milpitas, California to undergo further interoperability testing.

"As one of the founding members of the DisplayPort promoter group, and a very active VESA member, AMD has played a valuable role for more than four years now in the specification development of the DisplayPort interface," said Bill Lempesis, executive director, VESA. "We congratulate AMD on achieving this tremendous milestone so soon after DisplayPort version 1.1 was ratified in April."
