We’ll Be Parting with VGA in 5 Years

Officially announced by Intel and AMD, the format we all came to knowing of will be completely phased out by 2015. It’s said that support is to be ceased early 2013, and that the standard will die out by 2015. Nick Knuppfer, Intel’s spokesperson, told TechNewsWorld,

“HDMI and DisplayPort are modern digital interfaces that support higher resolutions and screen sizes.”

It isn’t surprising that the two major companies in the computer word is dropping this ancient analog technology, as integration of DisplayPort and HDMI technologies will yield higher resolutions and modern interfaces for displays in the future. The 5-volt requirement on VGA (video graphics array) ports actually results in an overall increase in cost and PCB real estate. How do you feel about this? Still use the VGA port quite often?
