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?

Member since:

300ppi roughly simulates 133 - 150dpi printer resolution, give or take

you have it the wrong way around
a printer with 5760x1440dpi (like many epson photprinters) can generate 180dpi with 8 bit color-depth at best
thats the reason why they need these insane resolutions
