I don't know if I was just looking for it or what, but I did see desync issues going on. Some of the displays every now and then would render faster than the others. Hopefully it is just a driver issue and wont be noticeable after release.
OK, so for us non-gamers and non-CAD-using folks, what can we display on a videowall like this? There aren't any movie formats with 7680x3600 pixel resolution out there. And god, please don't make me watch your vacation photo slideshow....
It looks impressive - no question.
But I wont use a three (ore more) monitor setup. I'm fine with one 19" LCD.
For showrooms these setups are interesting. Other than this, it's just a way to get more pixel to push around. Maybe with lower resolutions last gen GPUs were powerful enough?
(And I would like to see UVD support for Linux :-)
I'd like to see just four displays, quad LCD. I love the idea of using four small, cheap LCD 15” displays to make one 30” display with an effective 4096x3072 resolution. The breaks in the screen aren't half as annoying as paying thousands of dollars for a display that has a quarter of the resolution-especially when pixels burn out.
Quad LCD is a high resolution large screen solution that gives 4x the performance for half the price. It's a display setup that you could use ten years before the hardware can catch up to that level of resolution. Imagine how much computing power it would take to drive a 4096x3072 display. The chip manufactures would have a new mountain to climb, and maybe that would help sell some chips so the industry doesn't implode.
I'd like to see quad LCD on other stuff too, like and Ipod, optical display devices or projection LCD's, places where resolution is currently limited by the size/price of the LCD technology. I think optical displays are limited to 800x600 right now. Using a quad LCD format, you could use a cheaper base LCD and end up with much higher resolution.
SAL-e makes a salient comment about color differences between displays, commenting on a THG news blurb about this. The industry just hasn't considered the issue, I figure. Is it really that hard to get the colors between displays to match? Probably nobody's thought twice about it.
