    Audio over DisplayPort? I didn't know that was possible.

      I guess most people never noticed because computer display speakers are so bad, nobody uses them. It does support 8 audio channels, 24-bit, 192kHz, but none of that seems useful for computer monitors. And home theater systems use HDMI anyway,

        DP1.2 is a common way to connect a 4K monitor since HDMI doesn't drive 4K > 30Hz refresh (well, some very latest HDMI spec may do it). For some reason, Nvidia drivers on Optimus laptops mean no audio over Display Port (on Linux). So it's a bit said for Linux laptop owners with Nvidia graphics and external 4K screens.
        Maybe this is the long awaited Optimus fix, although I expected bigger celebrations so it probably isn't.

          I loaded the 430 driver this past weekend and had a bear of a time with the NVidia install script. (Usually it works fine) Anyway it hosed up everything.

          After going back to Nouveau, I found a PPA that had repackaged the 430 set for a much cleaner installation and it has been problem free since.

          I am still testing any benefits (seen or unseen) but so far it is meeting my needs.

            Why wouldn't it be? DP is basically just royalty-free HDMI with additional capabilities (in case you're not aware, you can drive an HDMI display over DP). People have been questioning why HDMI has been prioritized for so many years because DP has always been able to do everything HDMI can do, and more.
