    1080P resolution is already history. The professional industry wants to move as soon as possible to 4K. This brings us to a 4096x2160 resolution.

    It can be as much as 50MB for each frame and you need a beast to decode such a video. Even to edit it, it takes a lot of power. Nvidia is preaching 1440 resolution but the professional industry wants to go even further.

    4K is movie quality and roughly twice that of the 1080P but we have a nice shot to show you the difference. The video shot we pictured is 2048 only but it still looks incredible.

    wow... and i thought 2560x1600 was slick..

    but wtf, 1080p vs 4096x2160, that isn't twice that..... that several times more definition.

    1080p = 1920x1080 = 2,073,600 pixels of definition = widescreen 24 inch lcd monitors or HD tvs
    1600p = 2560x1600 = 4,096,000 pixels of Definition = Widescreen 30 inch LCD (Dell 3007fpw)
    wacko = 4096x2160 = 8,847,360 pixels of Definition = wtf will run that? Perhaps Dells 48 inch lcd?

    I think it's stupid. The human eye can only see an amount of definition. 1080p is already over the top. You have to be very close to a too big of a TV to notice the difference between 720p and 1080p so I can't imagine with 2160p. And since the industry standards right now are 1080i and 720p... most europeans prefer 720p much better than 1080i and people in the US are starting to like that a little better too.

    heffeque,

    the amount of visual detail a human eye can see is an insane value that we haven't come close to reaching.. and another fact is that everyone doesn't have the same sight. Course there will always be a average.

    Personally i'm a quality whore, i have great attention to detail, most people don't. They watch it as is, and couldn't care less if they could read that sign down the road a ways including the small print.

    I'm go for higher resolutions.

    And considering that mamoth of 200gb BR as the expected largest BR disc of this generation of BR we could expect, a 50mb per frame... i don't think 200gb will be quite large enough.

    50mb x 30 frames per second x 60 second per minute x 150 minutes average movie content = 13,500,000MB ~> call it 12+ TB of space for a average single movie

    Sure, lets oversaturate the market with content that cant even be displayed properly on anything the consumer has.

    i'd rather have the source as high quality and not have the tv to show it, rather then have bought the tv to show off high content and not have any source to actually take advantage of it.

    well right now i think nvidia's seperate port limitations on a dvi D port is 4096x3200, and ATIs is 2560x1600 (crossfire it's limit is 3200x2400)
