Gateway's new 30-inch monitor does 1600p


1600p? That’s a lot of progressively-scanned picture elements, my friends. Gateway’s new XHD3000 Quad HD display has a 30-inch, 2560×1600 resolution and costs about $1700.

While 1600p video content might be a bit tricky to find, the flat-panel will upscale 1080p video. You’ll also get six different inputs including HDMI, DVI (single- and dual-link), S-video, composite, and VGA. The video is powered by a fancy-pants chipset called the Teranex Silcon Optix Realta HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) and is capable of pushing a trillion operations per second.

If sound’s your thing you’ll be happy to learn that there are eight high-quality speakers, two headphone ports, and a remote control. Here’s a photo of the back of the monitor for shits and giggles. That’s a lotta holes, Slippery Pete.
