What is a native DisplayPort?

DisplayPort (DP) is a digital display interface developed by a consortium of PC and chip manufacturers and standardized by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). The interface is backward compatible with other interfaces, such as HDMI and DVI, through the use of either active or passive adapters.

Why are there no HDMI to DisplayPort cables?

The HDMI specification does not support the DisplayPort LVDS signal type, and if the HDMI TMDS is plugged into a DP monitor, it will not work. A different active adapter that converts the HDMI TMDS signal at 5v to DisplayPort LVDS at 3.3v is required.
