So....what's the deal on these curvy thingys? They look pretty interesting, but what do you guys think? How is game/GPU support for them with the 32:10 aspect...is that even an issue?

Don't like the resolution. 2880x900, same physical height of a 24" LCD but 300 pixels less... gives a pixel pitch of 0.36mm, not good enough. Of course it would help out with performance, you'd just be wanting to sit the thing back a bit further so that the pixel pitch is acceptable. Of course then the fact that it has a back almost as big as a CRT comes into play...

Yeah, I was wondering about that...thanks for the info.

If they can get the resolution up just a bit and if the technology becomes more available/price comes down, I would love to have one of these in a year or 2.

Anyone have any info on game/GPU support for this stretch?

Any more opinions/thoughts?

Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:
