    CEC I understand, but I haven't seen anything that actually uses Ethernet nor have I seen a GPU that's able to use it yet. Do you have any examples?

    Another thing is that HDMI ports require royalty payments while DP do not, so making GPUs with more HDMI would make them potentially more expensive for very little benefit.
