    EVGA keeps growing its visual-computing product lineup by the day, and has made its first major product in the PC display a reality. The InterView 1700 is a dual-panel display that holds two LCD panels side-by-side. The two panels are suspended on a central frame with joints that allow them to individually turn 180 degrees, and fold 90 degrees, so the viewer can customise the viewing experience. What's more, the frame itself bends 180 degrees.

    Each panel is 17 inch widescreen LCD, with native resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels, response time of 8 m, and 500:1 static contrast ratio. The central frame holds a 1.3 megapixel web-cam built in. It takes input from dual-link DVI and HDMI. At US $650, the EVGA InterView 1700 is targeted at financial analysts, accountants, scientific installations, medical imaging, and other professionals.

    Naah the resolution is fine, remember it's (14x2) by 9 in games/progs that support non-standard resolutions. I think the idea is great, but they should have tried to minimise the central column more. It's just too intrusive for anything 3d

    Lol ... It's too bad that the panels cannot double as solar collectors. You could tilt them back and charge up your UPS when not using the computer.

    with a response time of 8ms, how is it not for gaming??? maybe it wasnt designed with gaming in mind but that dont mean that we cant game on it. & Im guessing that a great majority of people that will buy this monitor will game on it.

    8 ms isn't exactly a great response time for gaming (and it's not that any LCD with 8 ms does gaming without noticeable ghosting). 5 ms is nice, ≤3 ms is where ghosting is effectively reduced for a CRT-like experience.

    you can game on anything under 16ms, so theres no 'gaming' specifics there. the myth about high response times causing ghosting is mostly crap, as long as no one color goes above 16ms, you get no ghosting - you used to be able to buy a cheap 8ms g2g that has 24ms blue to red, for example. thats how the whole thing got started.

    very few games work multimonitor natively, and stretching them over would hardly work with a big pole splitting your crosshair in half in FPS games, now would it?

    This is not designed for gaming at all. its designed for professional work. due to the fact its 8ms and not 2 or 5, its more likely to be an S-IPS panel or MVA/PVA.

    if you still dont beleive me, perhaps this quote from the first post helps.

    True, but why limit yourself?

    This could be a perfect SupCom monitor... or Serious Sam.. or... um I ran out of multi-monitor games that I want to play :/

    (pity that its multi monitor mode doesnt work with SLI or crossfire...)

    I agree. Honestly the monitors are too small for any kind of real photo editing and or rendering work IMO.

    Something like this would be great for people who are stock day-traders. I think the resolution might be a little low for medical imaging, but I am not sure what they are using out in the field now.

    That being said, if they come out with a pair of 30", 2560x1600 monitors in this configuration at under $3000, I will be the first in line. :rockout:

    Wouldn't moving from 17 to 30'' make the whole thing too big and clumbersome. You'd probably need additional weight at the base, maybe additional support etc.

    I'd prefer it if those monitors were 1080p each. Even those nice samsung displays at 24" I believe.

    im using dual 20" at my work, and i feel they are too small when i have photoshop or other programs open.

    $600 seems very high for 2x 17" monitors, you can buy 2x 24" monitors for that price.

    Ive spotted quite an obvious flaw in this design (dont shoot me if this is not true) but if you are in an office and want to show a graph to the person opposite, you filp the monitor round and they can see it. But, wont the image be upside down??

    Probably switches the orientation for you, like a camera/camcorder screen.

    Well, I don't know if they can license the Apple logo for its case, but I think they might be able to manage screen-orientation without resorting to Apple's help.
