Intel It looks like 2013 is finally going to be the year that we're going to see truly high resolution displays - according to Intel. Retina displays for laptops and desktops for everyone. Considering promises regarding HDPI have been thrown our way for years now, it's high time they became reality. As the article mentions, there's one interesting possible issue: Windows 8's desktop mode. How will it handle HDPI displays?

2013-2014 is going to be a good year for GPU and CPU companies.
I can see chipmakers being behind this because higher resolution means stronger computers is needed. Because gamers just love the max FPS at highest resolution. And at 3840x2160 that will drive a hellavu upgrade cycle.

I can also see chip companies becoming much more involved pushing extreme spec pc titles. Which is becoming a rarity.

Epic has pc only project planned.
