Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has just announced the cure for the common 20-something-inch 1080p display: a small TV-sized 31.5-inch monitor with a massive resolution of 3840x2160. Engadget reports that the Asus PQ321 display, which uses IGZO technology to reduce energy usage and thickness, includes DisplayPort and dual-HDMI input, integrated speakers, and an adjustable stand." The dread of 1366 and 1080p is being removed. Finally.

Finally? Apple has had a 27" 2560x1600 monitor for years, now.

But then again the Apple Cinema display is a very nice high end display that uses a standard connection that allows it to be used with any computer you have.

For a very long time it was about the best screen for the money you could get if you wanted a very high res screen, whilst the PC world stagnated at 1920x1080 and then started regressing to 1366x768.

The PC used to lead the high res display market, the 3840x2400 IBM T220 came out in 2001, it shouldn't have taken 12 years for us to get a slightly lower resolution with a much lower DPI and a less ideal aspect ratio to market.

What?!? Apple's 27" offerings are of the 2560x1440 persuasion. Maybe you were thinking about the old, circa 2005, 30" CinemaHD Display?


RT.

You are correct. I was thinking of the old one, not the current Thunderbolt model. My bad.
