    Phoronix: ATI X.Org Driver Gains Embedded DisplayPort

    AMD's Alex Deucher has just committed initial support for Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) connectors/monitors to the xf86-video-ati DDX display driver. Traditional DisplayPort monitors are already supported by this open-source ATI driver, but now Embedded DisplayPort connectors should begin to work as well...

    eDP (embedded DisplayPort) is the replacement for LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signalling) for Laptops.

    There is no connector that is user visible, it is embedded inside the unit for driving the DisplayPort panel already attached to the unit.

    This is needed for newer laptops to get pixels lit up on the LCD panel.

    Out of spite, I guess.

    So what kind of beast is this DP-DVI adapter?
    You read it wrong. He wrote DP -> (= arrow) DVI adapter.

    This is what I think he means: if the ATI card cannot find a display port signal at it's display port it won't use it's display port by default. Users will have to edit i2C when they connected something else at the display port in order for it to work. For example, because a user connected a DP-to-DVI cable.

    Something you plug into the DP port on your video card to connect a DVI monitor.

    Goto xf86-video-ati git repository.

    Type:
    $ git log

    Read log.
