AMD has become the first graphics processor maker to demonstrate a DisplayPort-capable graphics chip, according to an announcement by the company. The product in question is unnamed, but AMD says it successfully conducted interoperability testing of "a next-generation graphics processor" with a native DisplayPort 1.1 transmitter.
According to The Inquirer, AMD's upcoming R700 graphics processor will bring DisplayPort capability to the market. The Inq says R700-based graphics cards will feature a DVI output with a DVI-to-HDMI dongle, a plain old TV-Out port, and a DisplayPort, er, port. Judging by AMD's roadmaps, R700 is scheduled to make its appearance some time next year.
