DisplayPort vs Mini DisplayPort

displayportmini-displayport

Is DisplayPort identical to Mini DisplayPort in everything except physical configuration? Same capacity/bandwidth/etc?

Is there ANY advantage to using one over the other beside the physical size?

  • It is the same. You can even use a passive adaptor to go from one to another.

    The only advantage seems to be size. The regular plug is larger, easier to handle and looks less fragile.
