Let’s talk about the future of Macs, it is something that a lot of interest. One of the key pieces of the nearest future processor is probably the Ivy Bridge , Intel is considered the evolution of the current Sandy Bridge mounted computers in the apple. His 22-nanometer technology and integrated support OpenCL standard equipment suggest more power and fluidity in the coming year. What if I told you that in addition to those processors could handle Retina screens ?
Thus, as announced by Intel at the Intel Developer Forum held last week in San Francisco, the integrated GPU in the processor will be able to handle a screen resolution up to 4K, ie, 4096 x 4096 pixels. Whereas the usual current settings do not reach the 2000 pixels, we are talking about a major qualitative leap.
Of course, this does not mean that our computer with Intel Ivy Bridge automatically displayed on screen such images, as well as the coding is necessary that the monitor is capable of displaying this resolution. But, gentlemen, we talk about Apple, a company that is known for the visual look of its products, the first to introduce the concept of Retina Display on iPhone so that pixels are not noticeable to the human eye at a normal distance use. Do we think that the new possibility will not be studied in Cupertino?
Obviously an option as this is not without its own challenges. Images of this type require the management and storage of larger volumes of information than the current limitation of wiring to connect an external monitor, not yet ready for that bandwidth. However, a particular model as the MacBook Air in the future, with a feature like this is very unreasonable.
In AppleInsider ‘s account made ??by us or Thunderbolt Display 27-inch iMac. With a current ratio of 16:9 would mean a resolution of 4096 x 2304, or whatever it is, a density of 174 pixels per inch. Assuming a working distance of 24 inches (56’4 inches) that would be better to mark the product as Retina Display based on the methodology for the iPhone 4. Now we can start dreaming!
