NEC busts out "world's highest resolution" LCD
The leapfrog game played by manufacturers wanting to hold that oh-so-coveted "world's largest" claim has spread from megapixels to HDTVs, and now onto resolution. This time around, however, NEC is simply outdoing itself, as its latest 21.3-inch a-Si (amorphous silicon) LCD rocks an astounding 2,800 x 2,100 resolution. The previous "record" holder was NEC's NL256204AM15-01/01A, whose sesquipedalian model number was only trumped by its prodigious 2,560 x 2,048 pixel count. The panel also sports the company's own "super-fine TFT (SA-SFT)" technology, which enables a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. If you're mulling over picking one of these up to really show off that kilowatt-burning quad SLI setup, you should probably know that this uber-fine monitor comes in monochrome only, as its sole purpose (for now) is to examine detailed medical imagery such as digitized X-rays. It's probably for the best, though, as we don't envision these black and white bad boys coming in cheap at any rate.
