More pixels can mean a better resolution and much crisper picture, even on a 10-inch tablet, and this is exactly what companies want to promote with their next generation mobile chips. Nvidia’s Kal-El is likely going to be the first chip to officially support 2560x1600 resolution. Kal-El is expected to show its face in early Q4 2011, and to get out in October timeframe, but it is still not clear if we will simply see product announced based on Kal-El or you will actually be able to buy one already in October.
Since tablets usually need less than 2560x1600 for their 10-inch or smaller screens, the HDMI or Display Port will take care that you can get this resolution out of your device. The eternal question, who actually needs all this, remains to be answered. However, 2560x1600 support means that this chip can do 1280x800 in 3D, something that might be attractive to a few 3D lovers with 3D TV’s.
