2012 will bring 4K PC Monitors enabled by Intel Ivy Bridge, but can you afford them?

2012 could bring the first wave of 4K PC monitors to the consumer market. Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge platform is able to support 4K resolutions according to a presentation given at the IDF 2011 last week (via VR-Zone). Specificially the Ivy Bridge GPU is able to address 4,096x4,96px per display. The Intle Multi Format Codec (MFX) engine is able to playback several 4K videos at the same time. 

AppleInsider points out that a 27-inch Apple Display with a 4K resolution would be basically a Retina Display. So if you think your full HD monitor is great, think again. Next year you will find yourself sitting in front of a pixelated display at home after you encountered a 4K display at Best Buy or in an Apple Store.

Start saving your cash now as these new 4K Displays will cost a small fortune at launch. To set your expectations, Eizo will launch the DuraVision FDH3601 36-inch 4K Display in October in Japan for over $37,000 (2,880,000 Yen incl. Tax). Obviously pricing will come down significantly once 4K displays go into mass production, but we are definitely talking high-end pricing for at least the first two years.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
