The bandwidth in HDMI was set to allow uncompressed multichannel audio
up to (and possibly exceeding) 7.1 at a very high bitrate which allows
for very high quality audio (think better than DVD-Audio/SACD). It has
been taken use of with Blu-Ray(and what was HD-DVD) and is slowly
becoming the replacement for the old DVD-Audio/SACD debacle for music.

It may not be better(or worse?) than the DisplayPort thing, but it is
a standard that is in place and being used quite extensively.
