That's just a fancy way of saying the same thing

If you want to talk in proper engineering terms, 60Hz is the scan rate and 600Hz is the refresh rate.

I am glad i read other thoughts on this, and that i am not alone. Seeing how many people so quickly thinking the same, wouldn't it be worth it for LCD manufacturers to make cheaper monitors that do 1440p and 1600p, or even higher, 2160p ?

The reason i have a "lowly" CRT at 1920x1440 75hz, is because where i live, being a poorer country, it's harder to get high end things in general. There are plenty CRT monitors, but just people didn't buy higher end ones, so i have to buy whatever i can find. When i do find a better one, it gets sold the moment the ad goes online, so no luck so far.

It's interesting how such good high resolution CRT monitors were made 10 years ago when we had 10 times less powerful hardware to use it. Now, we struggle to find some decent monitors, what's up with this ??

But isn't it up to the panel to generate all the extra data, and hence the player conly need to supply 60Hz data?

Because the average person / PC user doesn't care about image quality

Only about the FULL HD sticker

Only about the 2ms response time, which is marketing bogus

Only about the contrast ratio, which is also marketing bogus

Only about the slim monitors

Only about LED, which is again marketing bogus.

Going higher than 2560x1600 is difficult because DVI can't handle it. Once displayport starts taking over that's when we'll probably see it happen.

Yes, but think about it - the panel is still being refreshed at 600Hz.

Refresh rate doesn't mean "how often the player sends new data", it means "how often the screen is updated".

you have a point

i stepped up from 900p to 1080p and thought it was amazing
stepping up from 1080p to my new 1200p monitor is just amazing!
1600p monitors are worth their money

Not enough demand pushing higher resolution monitors quite simply...partially because 1080 has become the standard, and certainly the huge price difference keeps demand low from those who might otherwise want to make a jump

Who sais that the 1080p is the standard, when it's about something technological that supposedly should improve in time. And going by this logic.. how come we have 14 MP pocket cameras as the mainstream now, but use 2MP monitors ? You would think that 5M digital cameras is more than enough, no ? Why do we have such ridiculous MP pocket cameras ? So why this applies to cameras, why does this work there, but not on computer monitors ?

Why not have it in monitors ? "Look, here is a 4MP monitor ! Nono, the competition has a 6MP one, let's buy that ! Wait, don't buy something yet, a new 8MP monitor should come out by next year !"
