Intel's Ivy Bridge to support 4K resolutions

Ivy Bridge capable of driving 4K resolutions

Well, well, Ivy Bridge. Not only are you going to be a shrunken master of silicon joy when compared to your predecessor, but you'll support resolutions in excess of 4K (maxing out at 4096 x 4096). This is a giant leap from the current limitation of Sandy Bridge's GPU which is 2560 x 1600. This would mean discrete GPUs would no longer be needed if you had a super-size-me display capable of 4K resolutions.

That or you're just a graphics junkie like me. Bring on the 4K screens at 120Hz thank you ma'am.
