Toshiba working on 22-inch display with 3840 x 2400 resolution

Posted on Friday, Nov 02 2007 @ 16:01 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Toshiba is working on a new 22" LCD display with a very high WQUXGA resolution - that's 3840 x 2400 pixels. The display has a pixel pitch of 0.1245mm (200 dpi).

The other features of the display aren't as impressive though: 300:1 contrast ratio, 235cd/m² brightness, 120-degree top/bottom and 100-degree left/right viewing angle.

The display will be available by mid-2008 for 2,079,000 yen ($18,098) and to run such a high resolution you'll also need a special graphics card. You can get the graphics card from Toshiba for 312,900 yen ($2,724).

So in the next 5 years the graphics card race will still be going strong, as we plateau to yet another level of resolution needs.

I hope so.

My main system has a 24" LCD display with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and sometimes when I'm doing a lot of work at the same time I wish I bought a 30" LCD because I still don't have enough screen estate.
