The next generation of GPUs AMD Radeon RX 7000 Seriesbased on the new AMD RDNA3 architecture, would be compatible with the new standard DisplayPort 2.0especially with the UHBR20 (Ultra-High-Bit-Rate), which would allow it to achieve a bandwidth of up to 80 Gbpswhich implies notable differences compared to HDMI 2.1 connectivity (32 Gbps less) and the popular DisplayPort 1.4a (48 Gbps less).

Essentially, this bandwidth would allow resolutions of up to 16K with Display Stream Compression, resolutions of 10K no compression or movement two 8K screens with HDR at 120Hz simultaneously.

AMD Radeon RX 7000 with DisplayPort 2.0

The support isn’t just a rumor, as AMD itself has started implementing fixes for DisplayPort 2.0 certification with the UHBR10, UHBR13.5, and UHBR20 standards, which define maximum performance for cable connectivity. In patches titled ‘DML changes for DCN32/321‘, AMD is preparing to enable the highest-bandwidth DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR20 mode for its next-generation Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs.

While the first monitors with DisplayPort 2.0 connectivity were supposed to arrive at the end of 2021, we are already mid-2022 and no monitors with such connectivity yet exist, so it seems at best that we will be able to see something by the end of 2021 year with the launch of these GPUs.
