Intel Ivy Bridge To Provide Support For 4K Resolution

    Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors, the successor to Sandy Bridge processors are supposed to run high resolution videos and images up to 4k, that is 4096 x 4096 resolution. It is a huge step up from the Sandy Bridge processors which ran WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution. Intel has claimed that the GPU can handle simultaneous playing of 4k resolutions as well. This was highlighted at the recently held Intel Developer Conference.


    The Ivy Bridge processors were known to be faster and smaller than their predecessor but the fact that the GPU architecture has such a support for such a supreme resolution was a fresh finding. Though Intel architecture provides us HD resolution of the highest degree, if it can be of any use now is still a question. For a 4096 x 4096 resolution to run we would need cables with sufficient bandwidth to carry such visual data and the 4k displays aren’t supposed to be cheap or widely available or recognised as of now. Back in June, EIZO announced a 36" monitor with resolution of 4096x2160, at a price tag of $36,000.

    On the other hand, it does encourage makers to aim for a higher standard of resolution. The 16:9 aspect ratio is the standard resolution supported by most hardwares. The advent of 4k resolutions will need better hardware to support the feature.

You get on this serving the laptops called, HP Pavilion dv4-5000, dv7-6000, dv6-7000 and HP Pavilion g4-2000, g6-2000, g7-2000. In the g-series, you get AMD Trinity APU, Intel Sandy Bridge and AMD Fusion processors. While, in all of these dv-series laptops, there comes bundled the Intel’s Core i processors (aka Ivy Bridge).
