1920 x 1080 now the new 1366 x 768?

Posted on Tuesday, January 15 2013 @ 13:25:20 CET by

The Tech Report noticed at CES that 1920 x 1080 seems to have become the new 1366 x 768. This is definitely a welcome but long-delayed evolution in the PC display market.
And yet... there's bad news here, too. The problem is that 1080p displays appear to be settling in as the new standard across a broad swath of systems of different types and sizes. For instance, we saw 1080p displays on an 11.6" AMD-based tablet, on a 13.3" Samsung laptop, and on a larger 15.6" Samsung laptop.

Uh oh.

On the 11.6" tablet, a 1080p display looks to be quite interesting. The pixel density doesn't quite rival the iPad, but text crispness and clarity does, thanks to an assist from Microsoft's ClearType sub-pixel anti-aliasing tech. As the display size rises, though, the pixel density of a 1080p display drops, to the point where it's not nearly as impressive in a 15.6" laptop.
