The four displays combined created an overall resolution of 3840x2400.
so another 2 years before they make a 42" monitor at 4k resolution? sweet

if it requires lightpeak to transfer that much data at 1ms i guess that's alright.

just stop calling it ultra HD. 10-15 years from now it's all going to look like 8 bit nintendo graphics anyways

WOW ! Thanks intel for giving us multiple displays from one single card! this is so unheard of till now! wonder why AMD and Nvidia couldn`t of think at this till now. ... oh wait!

Yet, No solution remains for those of us who actually might want to use dedicated graphics solutions

I'm looking at you Asus as well, hurry up with that thunderboltEX

It is the type of output (UltraHD), not multiple monitors you idiots. They are using dual Thunderbolt to drive that much data output. It is a nice low cost solution to ultra high definiton output. Did you have another solution you would like to provide for us? Oh wait, you don't have a clue what you're talking about.

will it work with 2560x1440 monitors? Can you guys at TomsHardware test it please? =D

In 10 to 15 years, we hopefully won't have pixel based graphics anymore.

Scientific research already surpassed that... and even today it would be applicable to certain degree (in a year or 2, complete practical implementation).

Capitalism on the other hand operates on market based cost-efficiency.
They will only switch to that new technology when it becomes cheap enough to produce (nevermind we have more than enough resources and technology to do it in abundance several times over), and only when they instill planned obsolescence into it.

[citation][nom]davidgermain[/nom]With all the 4k UHD screens all over the place why are they using 4 displays??[/citation]
Good question. But four monitors running 1080P on one mobo LOOKS more impressive than running one TV at 4K.

Sharp just announced a 30" 4K monitor. No word about price.

There are monitors now that minimise or remove the bezel altogether.

Or at least that's the idea for AMD's Six Monitor Eyefinity

Umm, Intel has been doing this since GMA 900 (or before?). 4k resolution, on the other hand...

With DisplayPort, several AMD and Nvidia cards can have four 2560x1600 displays. Some AMD cards can directly have six and I've seen even up to 24 displays in extreme Eyefinity solutions.
 
[citation][nom]ojas[/nom]And intel's demoed GT3 graphics playing Dirt 3 at high details, posting similar performance to an Nvidia GT650m.http://www.anandtech.com/show/6600 [...] ce-gt-650m[/citation]

Looking at what little info we have on their upcoming GT3 graphics, it may be accurate to compete with a GT 650M or maybe even better, but I'll wait for some more serious confirmation before I believe it.

because how many 4k displays have 4 Dual Link DVI or 2 HDMI/ Display port connectors?, most would have 2 dvi and 1 of each HDMI and display port. You still need 2 cables to drive 4k right now on 1 moniter. none have 4 ports that can re-combine the signal from 4 sources.

I'm pretty sure that Displayport's latest version and maybe also HDMI's latest version can support 4K with a single cable. Maybe we'll start seeing single cable, single display 4K tests once they become more common on graphics, motherboards (for IGPs), and the 4K displays.
