Thanks for this nice page. Hopefully more open drivers will support DP in the future. And I hope even more DP can stay parallel to HDMI. I needed to buy an HDMI cable yesterday, and it was awful expensive. I think the licenses are one reason. Don't know if DP cables are cheaper, though.

Re: Thanks

Current market price has six foot DP cables at about $20, and six foot HDMI cables anywhere from $10 to $20. Presumably the demand for DP just isn't very high yet.

DisplayPort sources can drive HDMI sinks just fine with an adaptor cable, so there is an upgrade path. The reverse is not true.
