Cheaper-than-ever 4K displays
Technology naturally becomes cheaper over time, but Intel's working directly with display makers to drive down the cost of 4K monitors and all-in-ones pronto. The company's partnering with ViewSonic, MSI, TPV, and others to hopefully bring the cost of 4K monitors to a mere—cough, cough—$400 by the end of the year, and 4K AIOs down to sub-$1000 price points. Who knows? If the bet pays off, maybe the long-promised 4K revolution will finally catch a spark.
Intel wasn't the only company showing off 4K-pushing tech at Computex: DisplayLink and IO Data announced the first universal 4K graphics adapter, with a USB 3.0 connector at one end, a DisplayPort connector at the other, and plenty of technical trickery going on under the hood.
