AMD RDNA 3 can get Displayport 2.0 at 80Gbps

The Displayport 2.0 interface specification was finalized early in 2019, but it is still missing in consumer products. A few weeks ago, VESA announced the awarding of the first accredited certifications, among others AMD with Ryzen 6000 Series for Laptops It was an Ultra-High Bit Rate (UHBR) certified. It looks like this certification will reach the upcoming Radeon RX 7000 series as well.

According to Twitter user Kepler 2 Has new information searched in revision to Linux kernel, which provides more details on alternatives to the RDNA 3 family of image outputs. AMD is said to support Displayport 2.0 at Ultra Bitrate 20 (UHBR20), which is the worse variant of the standard and allows a full 80Gbps. With the UHBR20, graphics cards will be equipped to drive, for example, two 8K displays at 120 Hz at the same time.

This isn’t the first time that similar information has been leaked through Linux-related updates. As early as August last year, AMD claimed to be laying the groundwork for Displayport 2.0 for the next generation of graphics cards Then according to UHBR10. There, the bandwidth is instead 40Gbps, which would have left HDMI 2.1 as a higher-performance alternative with 48Gbps.

In addition to the Ryzen 6000 series certification, the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series with Zen 4 architecture has also been confirmed to have Displayport 2.0 support, which indicates that the same applies to the RDNA 3 series and Radeon RX 7000 series, depending on which UHBR variant remains to be seen.
