HDMI is 18 gbps. DisplayPort is 17 gbps. You will find one or both on

The interconnects have been ready for a long time, there just wasn't

driving the capital investment that produces inexpensive computer displays.

It's not high-res compared to print, but nothing is.  It's certainly 
sharp enough to rival a monochrome CRT.
