it's well known that OMAP5 includes HDMI-TX, but not DisplayPort... (TI is quite open on their specs, cf TI's website) And if that's not a leading Apps processor, I don't know what is. And as a consumer, I do care that enabling displayport on a 24" LCD costs about 15% of the price of the LCD. I'll live with the added power-cord (hopefully USB-based) gladly.

A class battle of royalty-based and royalty-free approaches to enabling a hot new capability. I suspect this will be a dogfight for awhile.

Consumers go for convenience, so interoperability with legacy displays and getting rid of a power cord will be a big deal. They could care less about a $0.40 royalty or the virtues of micropackets. Hopefully, DisplayPort will get traction in the handset market.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
