Dell Releases UltraSharp U3415W Curved Ultra-Wide Monitor

Dell released its UltraSharp U3415W, a 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor, which the company claims will provide an ergonomic multi-display workspace with just two displays; to rival those with three full-HD ones.

PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 Up Close

We went up close with PowerColor's air-cooled Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 graphics card. Although technically an R9 295X2, the company is choosing to call it "dual-R9 290X." The card is massive, easily bigger in size than even NVIDIA's GTX TITAN-Z. It uses a huge triple-slot cooling solution with individual aluminium fin heatsinks for each of the two GPUs, and a base plate cooling the bridge chip, VRM, and memory; ventilated by three 100 mm fans that can be individually tweaked. The card draws power from four (yes, four) 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort.

When AMD chose to give the R9 295X2 liquid cooling it had only one thing on its mind, to tame its noise. Given that, the question on everyone's mind would be how loud this air-cooled card is. PowerColor's card, much like AMD's reference R9 290X, features two BIOSes, "Performance" and "Quiet." Even with all the show floor noise, the card was audible in "performance" mode. We didn't get to hear it out in the "quiet" mode, but PowerColor assured us that it's working on getting the card quiet. Unlike AMD's reference card, PowerColor may have to stiffen the card's throttle to achieve that.

Philips Rolls Out the 288P6LJEB 28-inch UHD Monitor

Small PC Enhances Waterproof Marine LCD Touchscreen Display

Small PC has integrated the latest touch screen technology into its rugged 24" Marine LCD Display. The new Multi-Touch LCD Display model SD240ML is Sunlight Readable and waterproof. The rugged lightweight aluminum chassis is completely sealed to dirt, dust and water. Optically enhancement processes, including glass bonding and anti-reflective coatings, improve clarity and contrast making the unit ideal for viewing in daylight and direct sunlight. A 1000 nit luminance rating is achieved using efficient low power LED backlights that do not require cooling fans air ventilated air flow. The projective capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch input similar to the operation of a smart phone or tablet touch screen but with a much larger working display area and the touch screen also works with gloved hands.

Although the SD240ML is noted as a Marine Display, it is also well suited to other applications and industries including transportation, public safety, utility, military and industrial automation. Standard Video Inputs include HDMI, VGA and Composite. The PCT (projective capacitive touch) interface uses a standard USB connection. Typical operating power is less than 50 watts using a 9-36V DC input power supply. Rear mounted waterproof connectors support standard mating cables as well as the included waterproof cable set. A dual ended waterproof cable set is optionally available for applications that require sealed connectors at both the display end the connecting computer end. Screen brightness of 0-100% is controlled with a front or rear mount potentiometer. Several mounting options are supported including VESA arms, and console/panel mounting using removable bezel brackets.

Dell Prepares 21:9 Cinema Display with 3440x1440 Resolution

Dell is on a roll. After announcing its 28-inch UltraSharp P2815Q and 24-inch UltraSharp UP2414Q, both of which feature Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) display resolutions in the 16:9 aspect-ratio, the company is turning its attention to the newfound 21:9 ultra-wide aspect-ratio. Expreview unearthed plans for a new 34-inch display, with an unusually high resolution that could woo away some of the Ultra HD crowd. The new U3415W from Dell offers a native resolution of 3440 x 1440, which has the same Y-axis as WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels), albeit much wider. Basic math would tell you that it's still a staggering 40 percent lower pixel count than Ultra HD. The U3415W reportedly features an IPS LCD panel made by LG. The display should offer a decent middle-ground between currently $400-ish 27-inch WQHD monitors, and four-figure >30-inch Ultra-HD ones taking shape.

AU Optronics Working on Affordable Ultra HD Monitors

Display panel maker AU Optronics, which supplies LCD panels to major monitor and TV manufacturers, is reportedly working on bringing Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) panels into the mainstream, and promises "affordable" 27-inch and 32-inch monitors beaming those many pixels by Q1 or Q2, 2014. AU Optronics, or AUO as it's known in the industry, supplies LCD panels to a variety of monitor manufacturers, including ASUS, BenQ, Philips, and even Samsung (which also makes its own high-end panels). Among the two panels AUO is working on, one offers sRGB gamut with Adobe RGB gamut coverage; both will be able to reproduce 10-bit with dithering. Given that these panels will be intended for monitors, there will be two major requirements - at least 60 Hz of refresh rate, and as low response time as possible.

Philips Releases New, 24-inch ErgoSensor Display

With a recent study showing that 80 percent of "knowledge workers" experience pain and fatigue after a long working day at their desks, it is clear that user health and wellbeing is a challenge that manufacturers have to take seriously. Reaffirming its commitment to keeping deskworkers healthy, MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces the release of the new 24-inch ErgoSensor display to complement line-up of office displays designed for wellbeing at work.

Over 80 percent of deskworkers suffer from work-related pain
To find out more about the current state of office ergonomics and the challenges users are facing, earlier this year MMD commissioned a study on the ergonomics of workplaces. The results of the study, conducted in Germany, Sweden and Denmark, are indeed alarming: over 80 percent of users have experienced pain and fatigue after a day at the computer - yet only half of private-sector workers in Germany have a height-adjustable display. User feedback in other markets shows that this issue is not limited to Germany.

I-O Data Rolls Out AD221PEB 21.5-inch PoE-ready Monitor

I-O Data rolled out the AD221PEB, a 21.5-inch monitor that's ready for PoE (power over Ethernet), letting you use a common plug for network connectivity, and enough power to meet its under-60 Watt draw. PoE is gaining popularity in enterprise environments, where companies are deploying large AC-to-DC power supply to power several computers, in comparison to fitting each one with a PSU of its own, thereby cumulatively increasing switching efficiency, by directly supplying DC power, and using DC-to-DC switching on the clients' ends. The sub-60W power draws of modern flat-screen monitors, and usually sub-100W power draws of business desktops are driving the adoption of PoE.

The AD221PEB, as a monitor, offers a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, it uses a TFT LCD panel with viewing angles of 160°/170°. Other vitals include 5 ms response time, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast. Measuring 507 mm x 178 mm x 390 mm (WxDxH), the display weighs about 3.5 kg. Display inputs include DVI, and D-Sub. The monitor integrates 2W stereo speakers, which take input from a common 3.5 mm stereo jack. Its stand offers basic tilt adjustments. Slated for early December, the I-O Data AD221PEB is expected to be priced in Japan at ¥47,800.
