    The sooner 2560x1600 displays become cheaper, the quicker I'll be buying two of them. It's a joke how they are so expensive when monitors (and thus screen resolution) are such an integral part of your computer experience.

    And 4K displays just makes me wet, but so will the price haha!

    Hurray! I'm absolutely sick to death of seeing 1366x768 on laptops everywhere. It's about acceptable on an 11 inch laptop, but not on a 15 inch one.

    While we're at it, let's also push for IPS displays all around too. £1000 laptops should have better displays than £500 iPads.

    This is good, but until intergrated graphics improve, I wont be buying an ultrabook with a resolution higher than hd.

    The Intel HD 4000 coming with Ivy Bridge is supposed to be a massive improvement on the current generation, with even bigger improvements planned for Haswell. I think Intel are already well-prepared for the high DPI revolution. Besides, Nvidia and AMD also stand to benefit strongly from this.

    True but could you not just window it and run it at a smaller res? I don't game on a laptop, and never will, so I couldn't care less about gpu grunt in them and just want them coming with larger resolutions. If I did want to game on them though, I wouldn't be using integrated graphics.

    About frickin' time. I'm sick of all these "HD" displays crowding out anything with a resolution I couldn't match in NINETEEN-NINETY-EIGHT.
    1920*1080 is only a little bigger than 1600*1200, and I was running that on a smaller screen.

    Well we can forget about running games in native resolution on lappys then.

    yay, just as we reach a sweet-spot where it is practical to run modern games at decent settings on inexpensive notebook hardware. You can run anything and well on a GT 540M @ 1366x768. That's not gonna happen with that res quadrupled. Need to get a message out to ATI & Nvidia to get their act in gear and get some more cores and wider memory interfaces going...

    Which is why they want a new standard....these companies always need a reason for the consumer to spend money upgrading.

    Just 3 words: About f***ing time!

    @r3loaded: IPS displays will have equal and higher resolutions than the run-of-the-mill parts, just like today. Prepay to pay for it though.

    If its high enough resolution and the scaler hardware is good enough it won't matter.

    I have three 30 inchers, when these monitors come out, I will buy three of them at 30 (or whatever the largest size is in) inches.

    Graphic cards will have to be tripled, this is good news!

    I imagine this will be the ceiling for some time. At 300ppi, you simply can't see the pixels any more unless you're nose-to-screen, so I can't see anyone bothering to produce anything higher than that for quite a while.

    For that reason, I also don't think we'll see TVs go natively higher than Full HD for quite a while. The average punter can't see the individual pixels at even just 1080 from across a room.

    ^I agree, and the size of 4K files will be huge (hundreds of GBs), so they'll have to figure out a realistic platform to push this standard. But I definitely can't wait for 4K displays to appear; it should push the price down of 1600p and 1440p ones too.

    I honestly don't see the appeal of high res screens that have a small dot pitch - I deliberately didn't get the U2711 because the pixel pitch is just too small for my liking.

    A photographer friend of mine recently bought an iPad 3 and says hes "underwhelmed" by the crazy resolution - the last thing you'd expect to hear from somebody who spends his life working with pixels. Frankly I think it's just another gimmick. Bigger screens with high res - now that's more like it. :thumb:

    I'd just want a 2k screen for large HDTV.

    anyone else find it ridiculous that its always apple that gets technology moving? seriously when was the last time a ridiculously popular computer-based phenomenon happened that apple DIDN'T start?

    These high-resolution screens could have been done a very long time ago. Tablets could have been accomplished even longer ago. The really stupid thing is a lot of what apple comes up with isn't even that cool or practical, but people can't help but get their panties wet because THEY made it.


    I have no problem with higher-resolution monitors. I think screen resolutions today on higher-quality monitors are good enough but I see no problem with increasing it.

    I'd say that Nvidia and AMD have been far ahead of the curve on graphics technology (partly due to console games and the software being far behind). Eyefinity and Nvidia Surround have demonstrated that their cards are easily capable of pushing 5760x1080 pixels, so it's not as far away as you think. Besides, you always have the option of gaming at a lower resolution or disabling AA as it's not needed at high resolutions.
