This would have looked amazing, were it not for those seams. The lines running through it are a little distracting. That said, I'm not sure multi screen support has come far enough to truly make several screens look like one huge screen.

To be honest, I've never been that bothered about a large screen anyway. I'm happy with a good monitor, I don't have to have a stunning one.

disgusting really. why didn't they choose a monitor with seamless panels

Now if they could just make a monitor that could physically connect and disconnect to other monitors of that kind and make basically an 'array' of monitors.

I have a 50 inch plasma just waiting for something like this xD

I just wanna know how much!!!

streetking

ummmm.... you know your television will only display at 1900x 1080 or something like that right?... unless its a 720 O.o and btw really bad idea using a computer with a plasma... your start button and taskbar could eventually get burned into the screen and never go away lol

Wikipedia doesn't have this. Someone should add it.

this is all well and good.... BUT... how about some games? The PC market for games is way too slow, there looking at DX11 for what?!? I want to see some more high end games!!!

Do you have an extra 6 monitor set and PC with magical futuristic GPU? I'd be happy to take them off your  hands.

Interesting, though I could see this more in a workstation setup for AV/Photo guys or powering commercial displays. I have a triple setup and it's more than enough for me, though a 4th screen would be great for keeping tabs on systems details, e-mail, weather and my local CCTV setup.

I like the step forward, and enough monitors that will finaly fill up my great grandfathers monster of a desk

They need to make a monitor with no borders or very thin ones to make multi monitor usage less obtrusive.

They're demoing it with crazy-thin
(<1cm thick) bezel displays here. The lines aren't very noticeable,
especially if you do a 3-wide setup. Then your focus is on the middle
screen, with the other stuff filling your peripheral vision.

just wondering will this run crysis and crysis warhead at very high and enthusiast settings with 8xAA and 16xAF?

avatar

nekollx

 at this size...probably not since the demo game got 20 fps...but on a single monitor....probably..

this is an amazing feat on AMDs part this is so good that im going to join the AMD bandwagon

thats sexy as hell. 6 hookers in one.

this just give me an idea... why don't we produce like 3840 x 2160 monitors and have 4 display port connection? each 1/4 of the screen is on a seperate cable/system, and rendered as a single monitor. you get big display, and no bars!

avatar

COMMANDER_COOK

The point is that one huge monitor, no matter how it connects to the pc, would be crazy expensive. Also, it's an extroadinary feat for a single gpu to be able to run a game on such a high resolution at 20 fps.

avatar

johnny3144

who said it have to limit to games? it could be used for all sort of things. like superHD movie, or graphic editing or something. i am sure people will find something to do with all the extra resolution. and it won't be that big, like 52 inch? cost 3k or something? seems pretty doable to me

avatar

COMMANDER_COOK

No one said it would be limited to games.

avatar

BloOdymAN666

ITS UTAHH!!!! 

Also, does this mean dx11 hardware is serious bidness?

avatar

WolfdaleX86

So basically the video card is dividing up those 7860x3200 resolution frames into 6 indvivdual chunks. That's a really nice piece of technology. Very interesting concept.

Ok, we have something to compare with: 12-20fps in 3d mark 2006 at flying ship model.

Now, someone with 3d mark 2006 on hands, please post your results so we can compare.

 

P.S.

what kind of connection these monitors are using? looks like optical SPDIF or firewire?

avatar

johnny3144

they are DisplayPort

 btw, we can't run it at the same res... it just don't work... dual link DVI simply don't go that high

avatar

whathuhitwasntme

funny thing was 

I my first thougt was will it run crysis as wel

oh well somebody beat me to asking it

...DisplayPort. And the word Awesome! And the letter A. And the number 6.

Okay, so this is exactly why I want DisplayPort. I'm sick and tired of the crappy DVI and VGA cables. You have to worry about bending pins and getting alignment perfect...and it's shitty...and the cable length has to be short...and it's really thick cable with a big end...and it's shitty.

Cumon monitor and video card vendors. Let's move forward with technology. DisplayPort rocks! Smaller connectors means more ports on video cards. Cable is thin. Cable ends are thin, so you don't have to drill big holes in walls/desks to run cable.

DisplayPort Rocks!

what was the os they were using to showcase the game?

 curious, cause my experience with vista and windows 7 has not allowed me to span a game to both monitors during gameplay (burnout paradise being the only game i have that allows multiple monitor gameplay). and from my reading on the subject, it is not a limitation of the game but rather the os.

it sure would be cool to have that big ass desktop, though

Well, I want to run it with four midrange 1080P projectors @ 3840x2160. No bars in your screen.

 

avatar

robotsneedhugs2

why do people do this? why would you want bars all over your screen?

Rob86

feel the same way. never wanted multi monitor because of the breaks. just one big monitor :)

 

avatar

Ryan Whitwam

Multiple monitors is fine for regular use in Windows.  Not so much for gaming.  I just keep the games to one monitor. I don't really want to whip my head around in games anyway.

avatar

deadgarth

Probably a lot cheaper than having one 90 inch screen.

avatar

nekollx

 but will it run Crysis?

it probably could, but then the monitor frames would get in the way for me. if it was one LARGER monitor, i could see that being cool.
