In order to get boot messages of the guest BIOS, boot loader, or early OS stages, access to the legacy VGA PIO and MMIO regions need to be forwarded to the passed-through adapter. QEMU requires patches to forward guest access to legacy VGA via the assigned adapter. As the legacy IO resources cannot be remapped, access needs to be switched between guests and the host on demand. As for those with legacy display hardware, such as LCDs, CRTs and projectors, which they still want to use, the companies are at pains to point out that – with the right adapter – DisplayPort is entirely backward-compatible with VGA. Moreover, the VBIOS of the adapter must be bootable inside the guest. Of course, this breaks if the guest OS or guest drivers decide to remap them. They’ve generously given me the possibility and financial support to initiate this project and to develop this card as part of the Systems and Network Engineering course, which is completely English-taught and open for Exchange students. “By moving to these new interfaces, Intel is able to focus investment on new innovations to enhance the PC experience rather than having to solve challenges of supporting legacy analog interfaces on our latest silicon process technology and products.” AMD plans to begin phasing out legacy interfaces, starting with the removal of native LVDS output from most products in 2013. The company also plans to remove native VGA output starting in 2013, with expansion to all AMD products by 2015. This would mean DVI-I support will be eliminated in the same timeframe.

Intel and AMD will remove LVDS support by 2013, though the companies differ in how keen they are to excise VGA ports: Intel is planning to oust them by 2015, while AMD expects to begin the cull in 2013. AMD will also get rid of DVI-I support as well, in the same timeframe. DisplayPort and HDMI allow for slimmer laptop designs, and support higher resolutions with deeper color than VGA – a technology which is more than 20 years old. “Modern digital display interfaces like DisplayPort and HDMI enhance the consumer visual PC experience by immersing them with higher resolutions and deeper colors – all at lower power – to enhance battery life for laptops,” said Eric Mentzer, Intel’s vice president of Strategy, Planning and Operations for the Visual and Parallel Computing Group. We already have different sizes of LCD panels with eDP out in the market to fulfill various needs of customers.“ said Michael Kim, vice president of IT Product Planning Department at LG Display. We’re a little busy with planning the steps after that, so stay tuned! However, for CMOS imager, due to its low-cost, low-power, and standard IC process, it will continue to erode the CCD market such as 1.3M/2.1M-pixels digital camera and cell-phone built-in camera.
Uaually, people only compare CMOS image sensor with CCD image sensor; and nothing to do with the imager format such as VGA. However, in CMOS imager, charges generated inside the pixels have to be converted to voltages and that suffers many kinds of noises such as KTC and row/column-based fixed pattern noise. Samsung Electronics LCD Business is already supporting this transition with embedded DisplayPort notebook panels, which we have been shipping since March of this year,” said Seung-Hwan Moon, vice president of engineering, LCD Business, Samsung Electronics. Intel and AMD expect that analog display outputs such as Video Graphics Array (VGA) and the low voltage differential signaling technology (LVDS) panel interface would no longer be supported in their product lines by 2015. HDMI has increasingly been included in new PCs for easy connection to consumer electronics devices. See your local computer or electronics dealer for purchase information.• To connect a Mac that includes only a Mini DisplayPort, Thunderbolt port, or Mini-DVI port for video output to the projector’s VGA video port, you need to obtain an adapter.
While you may want the nicer gaming computer, you may need to stick within your means and purchase a new computer that is more basic and has less features. Moving to the latest digital standards like DisplayPort enables customers to preserve backwards compatibility with installed equipment while taking full advantage of the latest advances in display capabilities, configuration options, and features,” said Liam Quinn, chief technology officer, Dell Business Client. “Legacy interfaces such as VGA, DVI and LVDS have not kept pace, and newer standards such as DisplayPort and HDMI clearly provide the best connectivity options moving forward. VGA (Video Graphics Adapter) and HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) are two video standards that are being used in the world today. If you have a separate laptop that you use for school or work and a gaming PC, switching between the two will only require a click of a button. It does not have enough inputs to connect many sources. It is also not a spoiler to suggest that the ‘Yellow Core’ problem(s) will have most players yelling, praying, perhaps cursing, and eventually (Gasp!) seeking a walkthrough. If you’re someone who relies on performance hardware to get things done like building in 3D, editing video, or working in VR, a gaming laptop will deliver the power to let you take on your work wherever you go, making it your ideal portable powerhouse.
