Alienware super screen is DLP

An old marchitecture for the future

Alienware caught a lot of attention with its ultra large screen, but we were quite disappointed to see that this is a DLP-based screen. It will show you the Crysis in a great resolution, but it won't do this with LCD.


We guess the main obstacle to make such a display with LCDs would be that LCD panels cannot be curved, at least not that we know of. Alienware is happy with the way things are going and Dell got a nice gaming asset and a lot of PR attention.

We are not sure if this product will ever make it to production, as it looks like a nice PR diversion of a sweet to look at, never to hit the market product. As you can see in the picture, it looks really cool.

In case you're interested, you can find out more about DLP technology on Wiki, here.
