Hardware, Embedded Systems "What is great about this panel (except its resolution) is that it has an eDisplayPort interface (which is supposed to replace LVDS in the near future), and as this hack proves it is compatible with traditional DisplayPort outputs found on all modern video cards. The panel is also surprisingly cheap - I got mine on ebay for $55, shipped from China. Hoping that eDisplayPort is compatible with regular DisplayPort (I couldn't find conclusive proof of this), I went on to interface the panel with a DP cable." Cool.

I didn't see them at $55 on ebay, more like $80++, but Alibaba in Shenzhen has them for about $50-60 for min order 10.

Besides the obvious ARM boards that people might want to hook up, there is also the possibility of driving with an FPGA like Spartan6 if you have the DP interface license and a soft core CPU.

I found this listing for 56.95 USD (ships for free inside US)

One other with free international shipping for 62.88 USD

Most popular ARM boards don't have DP/eDP connectors, so you will need an expensive converter.
Samsung Arndale is one of the few exceptions.
