New 30" on the Block!

HP-Voodoo has announced a new 30" monitor. It can only be purchased with a PC and costs $1900. That in itself isn't too great.... However, it does show HP (the largest PC OEM) moving into the very high-end monitor business. Hopefully, production will ramp up, compete will Dell+Apple, and drive prices down. More competition -> lower prices -> happy consumers.
Once again...

I'd imagine dell will probably have the cheapest prices by far. http://www.engadget.com/2005/12/03/t...inch-lcd-love/


Imagine getting a 46 inch monitor. That would probably suck for gamers. SLI 8800GTX required.

Edit: But then I suppose if you had 5,500 to spend on a monitor you'd probably already have the G80's SLI...

Why would it suck? And why does it require 8800GTX's in SLI?

Yes Dell's 30" is still much cheaper at $1200. However... again, more competition will help drive down prices.

The Samsung 46" offered by Voodoo would run fine on a 7950GT or anything equivalent. It has a resolution of only 1366x768.

I'm no experience on monitors. But the bigger the screen the better your graphic card has to be to display all of the pixels. So if you have say 19 inch monitors and your getting 40 fps on Oblivion. Then you upgraded to a 24 inch monitor and suddenly you might notice that your only getting 20-25 fps.

Those numbers are just random. If you click on other threads you'll see other members that post more details on that.

Ah, I didn't even read the resolution. Isn't that like a LCD TV?

The size has no effect on performance, a 17in and a 21in monitor will show the same exact performance unless they have different resolutions, the 21in would just have bigger pixels.

Now, in the case of the 30" (which run at 2560x1600, Dell and Apples' do anyways) vs. that 46" which only runs at 1366x768, you would get much better performance on the 46" but I would never game on that, such a big monitor with such a relatively low resolution means you would have pretty bad looking games IMO.

1366x768 is only HDTV resolution. They have bigger screens than that at that resolution, but that resolution will suck for gaming, especially at that big of a screen.
