2. Version evolution
HDMI interface can transmit audio and video signals at the same time, different versions of the differences are as follows:
HDMI1.4 has a maximum bandwidth of 10.2GDPS, theoretically supporting 1080P 144Hz, 2K 75Hz, 3840 x 2160/30Hz, 4096 x 2160/24Hz.
HDMI2.0 has a maximum bandwidth of 18Gbps and supports 1080P 240Hz, 2K 144Hz, 4K 60Hz and 5K 30Hz.
HDMI2.1 has a maximum bandwidth of 48Gbps and supports 2K 240Hz, 4K 144Hz, 5K 60Hz and 8K 30Hz.
The first generation of DP interface bandwidth reached 10.8Gbps;DP1.2 bandwidth up to 21.6Gbit/s, DP1.4 bandwidth also reached 32.4Gbps, but joined the DSC display compressed stream technology, which supports 240Hz under 4K, 60Hz under 8K.
HDMI and DP interfaces at different resolutions to support the refresh rate 3, widespread range
