Kal-El and future chips are 2560x1600 HD + video

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Future trends
It looks like 1080p is not enough for the future. Companies want to convince you that you need more than 1920x1080 pixels even on your tablets, possibly even phones. This is what the future brings.

More pixels can mean a better resolution and much crisper picture, even on a 10-inch tablet, and this is exactly what companies want to promote with their next generation mobile chips. Nvidia’s Kal-El is likely going to be the first chip to officially support 2560x1600 resolution. Kal-El is expected to show its face in early Q4 2011, and to get out in October timeframe, but it is still not clear if we will simply see product announced based on Kal-El or you will actually be able to buy one already in October.

Since tablets usually need less than 2560x1600 for their 10-inch or smaller screens, the HDMI or Display Port will take care that you can get this resolution out of your device. The eternal question, who actually needs all this, remains to be answered. However, 2560x1600 support means that this chip can do 1280x800 in 3D, something that might be attractive to a few 3D lovers with 3D TV’s.

It starts in October and naturally Wayne, a 28nm ARM A9 based chip will continue this trend supporting at least 2560x1600 if not even higher resolutions, should anyone see the need for them.

It's nice to see higher display resolutions, but good grief people, let's first perfect 1920 x 1080p then move up from there. Fully implemented 1080p still needs massive tweaking and has a lot of room for improvements. But like always it's companies trying to pick-pocket money from us.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for Technological Advancements…. 8)

This is a typical nonsense Fudo article. It says nothing. Just fulfilling his daily quote of Nvidia ass-kissing. Huang must really treat you well, or perhaps you're just desperate. We all know AMD didn't invite you to their recent event.

Interesting to know:

HDMI can't do this kind of resolution.
1920x1200 is max for HDMI.
For everything else you need DP or dual link DVI

BTW:

FUD is contradicting their own interview with Nvidia:
http://vr-zone.com/articles/nvidia-28nm-kepler-production-in-q4-2011-release-in-2012/13520.html

They said earlier, there won't be any Kal-El this year, just the production start.

1080p has not been enough for a while now. With TV's stuck at it and 60Hz input though...

Quoting Vizeroy:
HDMI can't do this kind of resolution.
1920x1200 is max for HDMI.

Actually the max is 4096×2160p24 in ver 1.4
The real problem is that all the official specs call for 75Hz or lower.
Damn, I'd take a 2560×1600p75 TV. What I really want though is a TV with DisplayPort that does accept 120Hz input correctly, even if it's still 1080p...

No, HDMI supports 2560 x 1600 since 1.3.

All that i know is DP is the better standard, has just under 3x the bandwidth of HDMI

Kal-El is 40nm ;)

What the hell is wrong with you? You accuse others of trolling and then you're the first person to come and troll on nvidia related articles. What's your agenda? What do you want to achieve? You're the one who always derails the comments section with your stupid comments and draws in nvidia fanboys. Just stop it already.
It's funny that you read one of the most biased websites out there, semiaccurate, and then accuse fudzilla for being biased. People like you are called hypocrites.

I shouldn't write quick comments in work breaks...
this definetely reduces time to check sources.
Sorry for that one.
