IBM says it has developed a new LCD technology for high-resolution flat panel displays that will provide a much higher density of pixels per inch than typical flat-panel displays.
Company officials say the 20.8″ QX20 display will achieve resolutions of up to 2,048 by 1,536, or 123 pixels per inch. Typical flat-panel displays offer about 88 pixels per inch, while high-definition television screens have about 55 pixels per inch.
IBM expects that because of its size and expense (between $5,000 and $7,000) the QX20 will be sold primarily to customers in the computer industry, but the company also plans to offer the technology to consumers in its notebook PCs.
