Hardware, Embedded Systems "Yesterday, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), the organization behind several display interfaces, has refreshed the DisplayPort Embedded standard, also known as eDP for short. [...] The updated standard now includes a new Panel Self-Refresh feature that was developed to save system power and further extend battery life in portable PC systems. This was detailed to us during CES when we visited the DisplayPort booth at CES."

So all that hype about them being an open (royalty free) standard is gone now? Who needs them then, if there is a proprietary HDMI anyway.

From the "Order" link in the linked page :

"DISPLAYPORT STANDARDS
DisplayPort 1.2 [$3,000]
Internal DisplayPort (iDP) 1.0 [$995]
Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) 1.3 [$995]"

Yes, I think the hype is gone. This is definitely too expensive to be just the price of paper ;)
