- nVidia Press Release - New Quadro!

nVidia sent out a press release yesterday supporting their new Quadro NVS 280 PCI professional series 2D graphics card, aimed at enterprise and multi-monitor applications. HP are already offering these cards as a part of their Intel P4/Xeon workstations. You can read more in the official PR here (remembering to right click, choose "Save target as".)


Available immediately in Intel® Pentium4®/Xeon® based HP workstations, the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCI is a small form-factor, dual-head graphics board that can act as the main graphics head for PCI-only systems, or in combination with other PCI and AGP 8X boards, drive up to 16 high-resolution digital flat panels from a single computer. The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCI features a single, high-density DMS-59 connector, which provides tremendous flexibility for dual-analog and/or 1600x1200-resolution digital flat panels.


- Samsung announces World's Largest LCD TV

I just discovered a post over at i4u which had me almost literally foaming at the mouth. Samsung have announced the world's largest LCD TV, a 46" monster capable of 1080i resolution mode and SRS TruSurround XT sound. Of course, the depressing thing is always the price tag, but it's never a crime to dream.


Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd announces (korean press-release) the world's first 46-inch LCD TV.


The company said it plans to release the product within the Korean market and ship the product to overseas markets during the first half of 2004. The initial price is reported to be around $13,500.


The Samsung LT46G1 will support 1080i resolution mode and SRS TruSurround XT sound.


Samsung was showing prototypes of a 46" LCD TV and also of a 54" LCD TV already at the CES in 2002, see PCWolrd Article. I guess it took Samsung a while to really productize those large scale LCD Panels.


LCD Panels compete with the Plamsa Technology for large-scale Flat panel TVs. The current world's largest Plasma TV is 80-inch and is also from Samsung (see story on Gizmodo).
