With a single DisplayPort connection using the new DockPort extension and enhanced power capabilities under development, users will be able to attach their computers or tablets to a docking station and have instant, hassle-free access to a wide array of external resources.
AMDs Discovery Tablet reference design utilizes DisplayPort with the DockPort extension to enable video, data and power over one connector.
DisplayPort is a high data rate video interface standard. It connects computers and other video sources to televisions and displays, while maintaining backward compatibility with VGA, DVI and HDMI. DisplayPort allows a video source to drive up to four displays, and it is the only video interface that can support 4K UHD TVs and displays with deep color at 60 frames per second.
