HDMI interface is widely used in various multimedia entertainment devices such as TVs, monitoring equipment, high-definition players, home game consoles, etc., while DP is mainly used in graphics cards and computer monitors. Both are high-definition digital interfaces, which can provide high-definition video and audio output at the same time, so people often compare the two.

DP1.4 has a bandwidth of 32.4Gbps and supports 4K 120Hz and 8K 30Hz. Before HDMI2.1 was launched, DP1.4 can be said to be better than HDMI2.0 in an all-round way.
