That size and resolution plus touch for that price... Yeah it'll be a while before those come out.

I'd be more interested in their 144Hz monitor.

Nice find... that typo almost made me ready to buy a new monitor.
I think that was more of an assumption than a typo. Assumptions and news don't go together.

Good find Andrea deluxe.

24"? Awe. My T260HD has me spoiled...

But I'd love two of those PA248QJs next to each other. Tired of all these 1080p monitors.

Ugh... just give us 3840x2160 screens (or something) already... or at least more price-friendly 2560x1440s...

1920 x 1080p is more than enough for me for now. Especially on a 24" HD screen. My ASUS LED looks great and games even better. But wow 3840 x 2160, do games support this res?

Any game should support any resolution, as it's all the same general algorithm, with different screen sizes put in. But yeah, for some weird reason they don't. :wtf:

pretty sure it works the other way around though... instead of building UP resolution, it builds down. they create the game with a MAX resolution (textures and all that are made in this resolution) and then anything BELOW that is supported.

it just simply wouldn't work the other way around to go infinitely up in resolution. if a texture is made for 1080p res, how are you supposed to render a scene in a higher resolution??? the textures don't exist for it

Sure, it works, the game engine just upscales the texture. This is what happens when you go up close to an object and it looks all blurry, because you've reached the limit of the texture. Remember, the textures never have a 1:1 correlation with the screen pixels, because they're always resized, shown at an angle, have an effect applied, rotated etc. Rendering them on a super high res screen is no different at all.
