"Only limited by your 4 display ports"

Right, because that $5k price tag on each monitor is clearly not a problem.

Well boys, looks like we need an updated video port. Something that won't cap out at 30HZ

Still waiting for SED cheap LCD screens hurt people if say buying a Cheap Emerson from Walmart will drive your average man nuts.

I'm looking to do this with 3D at 144 Hz with all the bells and whistles maxed out. So MS, AMD, and NVidia get cracking on a graphics optimized WIN 9 with Dx12 and the next generation of video cards because even Titan SLI can't deliver that level of performance.

But can it do 120hz for nvidia 3d vision at 4K?

And yet consumer grade monitors have yet to break above 1920*1200.

DisplayPort was approved for production (and seen on GPUs everywhere but consumer monitors nowhere) even though it defaults to a 30 Hz refresh rate? Sounds like a failure to me, even though that limit can be circumvented.

I wonder what Win8 looks like on these 4K monitors. This year's dream machine had one but they never talked about it...
BTW, there is a CRAZY STRANGE AD for AOL in the mag in the Dream Machine article. I double checked the cover to see if I went forward in time to April's mag.

I'd be happy with just one big monitor.

Not 12K.... To be 12K it would need 6 more monitors (3x3) as 12K would be 11520 x 6480.(16:9 aspect ratio)

4000 X 3 is 12,000 pixels

16:9 aspect would never be used in such a setup even if you are Bill Gates

Wowsers. I now know what the vidcard will be on my new build. Currently running a 6850 with 3x1680 and it's quite adequate at medium settings, but that thing is just nutz-fast.

I have been using surround for years (5760 X 1200 on three Samsung 1920 X 1200 displays)I drive them with a pair of GTX 580's in SLI so I am used to very high frame rates but three Ultra displays, that is nuts and nuts in an excellent way.

It's probably because they didn't have any cash left over after those monitors...
