DOES THE PS5 HAVE DISPLAYPORT? IS IT DIFFER FROM HDMI?

We continue to talk about the technical characteristics of the new Sony console, specifically the connections to TVs and monitors. After seeing which TVs PS5 is compatible with, we want to answer a question that many (especially those who still don’t have a console have a home) have asked themselves: does the PS5 have DisplayPort?

PS5 have DisplayPort?

The digital video interface called DisplayPort was created by VESA ( Video Electronics Standards Association ) with the aim of replacing the VGA and DVI standards previously popular on various display devices, especially PC monitors. Precisely for this reason, it is found to a greater extent on video cards, motherboards and more recent monitors; the 1.4 specification, which has a maximum transmission speed of 32.4 Gbps (therefore comparable to the HDMI 2.1 of PS5 ), is only available on higher-level devices.

What Benefits HDMI 2.1 offer?

Here are all of the main features that the new HDMI 2.1 packs in: 

  • Variable-rate refresh 
  • Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM)
  • Quick Frame Transport 
  • Quick Media Switching (QMS) 
  • 120Hz at 4K
  • 8K at 60hz 
  • Dynamic HDR 
  • eARC for improved sound pass-through
  • Improved bandwidth from 18 Gbps (HDMI 2.0) to 48 Gbps (HDMI 2.1).

For in-depth information about each of these benefits, take a look at the official HDMI standards website here.
