TN-film Panel Based Ultra HD Monitors Could Sell for Cheap by Mid-2014

An NPD DisplaySearch boldly claiming that the industry will ship as many as 2 million Ultra HD (3840 x 2160-pixel) monitors by the end of 2014, is beginning to sound a little more plausible, with display makers pushing for "affordable" Ultra HD monitors in the 28-inch size segment, by mid-2014. By these, we're not referring to cheap, borderline gray market monitors from lesser known Korean manufacturers; but display majors from the same country, such as Samsung and LG. According to Hardware.info, which recently published a review of the Samsung LU28D590D, a 28-inch monitor based on a cheap TN-film panel by Chimei (CMO), that offers Ultra HD resolution; prices of the display could be as low as 600€ or £500, by mid-2014. So if you're planning to ditch the full HD (1920 x 1080) or WUXGA (1920 x 1200) monitor you've been holding on to for the past 5 or so years, wait just a little longer.

Industry will Ship 2 Million Ultra HD Monitors in 2014: NPD DisplaySearch

Thanks to falling production costs leading to declines in average selling prices (ASPs), shipments of ultra-high-definition (UHD) 4K desktop monitor displays are expected to increase steadily. According to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Desktop Monitor Shipment and Forecast Report, even as overall desktop monitor demand falls to 133 million units in 2014, 4K UHD monitor shipments will reach two million units, and by 2017 shipments are forecast to reach approximately 8% of the market. The ASP for 4K monitors is forecast to decline from $1,347 in 2014 to $927 in 2017.

"Increased 4K-class monitor shipment volume will depend on how far and how fast ASPs decline," said Hidetoshi Himuro, director of PC and IT research at NPD DisplaySearch. "Although manufacturers hope toraise prices for 4K-enabled monitors, price competition has already begun."

GeForce GTX TITAN Black Gets First Listing

NVIDIA's upcoming high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN Black, scored its first listing by an online store. Finnish store Multitronic Webshop listed it for €974.90 (including all applicable taxes). The store mentions the pre-tax price at €786.21, which converts to roughly US $1071. These prices confirm the theory that the GTX TITAN Black is being designed to replace the current GTX TITAN from its $999 (pre-tax) price-point. The current GTX TITAN has been cannibalized by the GTX 780 Ti at gaming, and the only two straws it's been clutching onto are 6 GB of memory, and full double-precision floating point GPGPU performance.

The GeForce GTX TITAN Black is a maxing out of the feature-set of the GK110 silicon. It features the full complement of CUDA cores at 2,880 - same as the GTX 780 Ti - but also features full double-precision floating point GPGPU performance, and 6 GB of standard memory amount, which could help in 3DVision Surround, and 4K Ultra HD display setups. Other vital specs of the GPU include 240 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. There's no word on its clock speeds, but we expect it to be either on par with, or slightly higher than those of the GTX 780 Ti.
