    Display Forum 2003 in The Hague, Holland, IBM displays (pun!) their new 22" LCD with a resolution of 3800 x 2400 pixels (9.2 million pixels).

    Personally, I'm holding off until the 16:9 ratio version of 4266 x 2400 pixels is available (10.2 million pixels). :)

    Surely you mean widescreen 1920x1200 (16:10 ratio) or even better HDTV 1920x1080 (16:9) ratio? ;)

    The IBM screen has been around for a while. It was over $10k to start with so it's reasonable now!:)

    It is also available rebadged as the Iiyama AQU5611DBK which lists at £5756.33

    Resolution is 3840x2400 which is actually four video inputs of 1920*1200 so you'd need to fnd a suitable graphics card such as the Matrox Parhelia HR256.

    Mind you it is ONLY 22.2"...
    ;)

    I've had a Sony FW900 24" widescreen monitor for years. Almost every modern game supports 16:9 ratio, or 16:10 at worst.

    I play plenty at 1366x768 (16:9 ratio) on my Panny 50" plasma too.

    Many games have anamorphic switches as well as supporting resolution, so characters are not made fat (like watching 4:3 video in 16:9 ratio). Even the Steam version of Half-Life/Counter-Strike have anamorphic mode -- and it's fabulous.

    Even GameCube titles have widescreen modes.

    41Hz though :( can't even display PAL's 50Hz let alone NTSC's 60Hz or what I think is minimum for gaming 85Hz.

    Although rereading the webpage, it says minimum 41Hz and maximum 56Hz; so it could do PAL but not NTSC or reasonable PC.
