Get ready to say goodbye to analog display connectivity as several major tech companies have banded together to stop supporting LVDS in 2013 and VGA in 2015.

Those aforementioned manufactures consist of AMD, Dell, Intel Corporation, Lenovo, Samsung Electronics LCD Business and LG Display.

Instead, focus will be placed on DisplayPort and HDMI connections as they support higher resolutions, more color depth, multi-display support, and stereoscopic 3-D technology.
