It will use optical or copper; I'd like to have video routed throughout my house via cheap optical fiber. Very cool.
Displayport may be a good standard for PCs and excllant for HD video.
But what about audio and HD audio...
In the PC world, Is audio quality really important.
So now we are going to have to run 2 separate cables, 1 for HD video and 1 for HD audio while still including the HDCP validation required by the studio/content providers.
Maybe more thought has be done as Displayport to be consider as an HD video interface may be a step backward rather than going forward..
Just my $0.04...
