Mini Displayport - MDP

The Mini DisplayPort (MiniDP or MDP) is a miniaturized version of the DisplayPort audio-visual digital interface and formed the base foundation for ThunderBolt.

It was announced by Apple in October 2008, and by early 2013 all new Apple Macintosh computers had Mini DisplayPort as did the LED Cinema Display.  However, in 2016 Apple began phasing out the port and replacing it with the new USB-C connector. The Mini DisplayPort is also fitted to some PC motherboards, video cards, and many PC notebooks.
