    What I am talking about is a Gaming monitor with:
    -no tearing, be it LCD or otherwise
    -built in compatibility "Option" with Catalyst
    -Input Response lag is the lowest in the industry
    -Highest Viewing Angle 180/180 or higher
    -Refresh rate of 120Hz (already found on HDTV)
    -3000:1 and higher contrast ratio
    -450 cd/m2 and higher brightness
    -Some sort of UVD built in
    -Incorporate some components from the HD 650 into the monitor. Video of what the HD 650 is all about

    Just an idea to see how ATI could expand their products and service.

    Not a bad idea, but I would have to see the specs and reviews on one before i'd ever consider buying it.

    Well I always wondered why we didn't have similar manufactured monitors.

    interesting as well, I'd love to see it, but . . .

    aren't the vast majority of LCD display components manufactured by only a few companies, and then pandered out to each individual brand?

    probably to expensive for them to invest into it with all the research and developmet they have to spend on their gpu and processor

    id rather them spend all there money on a gpu or processor rather than send some of it on monitors.

    as there are really only two major companies the specialize in the processor and gpu market...and hundreds of companises in the moniter market...


    pointless really...

    I don't see why they shouldn't, apart from the financial aspect. It would be a pretty cool feature to have a monitor that is directly intwine with your GFX card and driver.

    I am not really sure. The benefits may not be that great so... I cannot say yet.
