Graphic designers, photographers and those of you otherwise interested in the visual arts, take notice: ViewSonic showcased a 31.5-inch monitor with a 3840×2160 resolution at Computex. Here’s more from Engadget:
The ViewSonic VP3280-LED features a 31.5-inch LCD panel, packing 8.8 million pixels for a total density of 150 pixels-per-inch. That means incredibly sharp images and vibrant frames — the display is capable of 10-bit 1.07 billion-color presentation. A relatively small footprint means you could realistically pack 3840 x 2160 pixels on your desk, with a bit of room to spare.
The display we saw was hooked up to an Intel Core i5-powered PC, which ViewSonic reps say is only capable of pumping out still photos (you’ll need a Core i7 for video or regular computer use), but we very much liked what we saw.
So you’ll need a potently powerful PC, first and foremost. You’ll also need deep pockets or a killer pitch to whomever oversees your expense account: ViewSonic told Engadget that the monitor will cost “about the price of a car.” No word on a firm release date other than that it “could ship by the end of the year,” says Engadget.
