Intel Ivy Bridge To Enable 4096 Resolution

"Intel quietly revealed last week that its next-generation Ivy Bridge processors will support the 4K display resolution, with up to 4096 x 4096 pixels per monitor, potentially paving the way for Apple to introduce high-resolution "Retina Display" Macs."

When HD just isn't enough, soon we'll have even higher resolution and clarity. 4096 x 4096? Holy headache, here comes the 60-inch iMac!? Intel also announced a Multi Format Codec (MFX) engine that is capable of playing multiple 4K videos concurrently. This codec will also support 4KQuadHD video, a new YouTube video format. It is anticipated that Ivy Bridge enhancements give it roughly a 60 percent performance boost over the current Sandy Bridge processor family. Ivy Bridge will also support the Apple OpenCL standard for future products in 2012 and beyond.
