VESA will certify and mark DisplayPort 2.0 cables to avoid problems with HDMI 2.1
VESA said that through the DisplayPort UHBR certification program, device and cable manufacturers can send new products to DisplayPort Authorized Test Centers (ATCs) for testing and certification. Several products are currently being tested, and early certification should be completed soon.
VESA hopes that this move will avoid the problems encountered with the HDMI 2.1 standard, and the label of a 24.5-inch display with a refresh rate of 240Hz from Xiaomi has been controversial. VESA’s approach is somewhat similar to USB-IF’s move last year, trying to clarify data transfer and charging speeds on USB-C cables, providing 40Gbps and 20Gbps logos for manufacturers to use on products and packaging.
