    As far as I could tell, there's nothing in there with regards to FreeSync or indeed about when we are likely to see monitors and GPUs that are DP 1.3 compliant. Still it looks like things are moving in the right direction.

    I'm most interested in freesync compatability - if it requires an amd card I'll happily switch! Won't need stupidly expensive monitors with TN panels.

    Re: News - VESA launches DisplayPort 1.3 standard

    I would like this feature but I've heard from AIB manufactures on Nvidia's GTX 900's currently only have support for 1.2v hopefully down the line they'll bring out revised versions soon

    By the time monitors supporting it come out the GTX 900 series will be well out of date.

    Re: News - VESA launches DisplayPort 1.3 standard

    I hope not - I've been waiting ages already for this! Nvidia are able to charge stupid money for their G-Sync because there's no technology to rival it at the moment.

    It's likely that you're right though. I wonder when we'll see monitors with HDMI 2.0...

    Thats because freesync is actually reliant on the variable vBlank support that was introduced in 1.2a. In order to be freesync compatible a monitor actually has to implement this feature. 1.3 is therefore already compatible so its no surprise they didn't mention it. I am surprised that they didn't mention that this would allow 4k 3d but honestly does anyone still care?

    So the next question has to be, where are the Display Port 1.2a monitors?

    " It will work with the 4:2:0 pixel structure "
    Does that mean it will only work with 4:2:0 ? no way for 4:4:4 ?

    Probably it can, but at reduced resolution/refresh rate.
