I really think EVE could enter the monitor and AIO sector.
monitors and AIO pcs (without the gpu, assuming its a large gpu that wouldn’t fit snuggly if built into the monitor).
In thisthread, in an attempt to make sense of things I used all to many words only to realize what I was asking for was just a retina monitor (which happens to be 4k depending on how far your seated) that can support high hz at lower resolutions.
A 23" monitor at 4k = retina @ 18inches away, in fact im seated 24inches away, this suits my needs.
techwise we are there.
So it occurred to me that running anywhere from anywhere between 1800p to 2000p isn’t or is barely doable on hdmi 2.0 at 100hz.
I didn’t crunch the numbers, but seeing as how the max for 1440p is 144hz
4k @ 2160p can only reach 60hz.
you might be able to get 1800p @100hz
hdmi2.1 and being able to run games at 4k 120hz (<not really needed anyways for gaming retina wise)is still a long way away (especially at affordable costs).
In the mean time using thunderbolt + external gpus could be viable…
For any of this to make sense I need to determine if it is possible to have a 4k monitor with 1 hdmi2.0 cable to run 1440p @144hz stretched?
So if at all possible by mid 2018, there is still a window to market sell a 4k resolution monitor that supports high HZ at lower resolutions and gamers who want high HZ could reach up to 1800p.
In fact this window is pretty large and definitely marketable given that even if we can support 4k@120, its another story to be able to run the games at that resolution.
Running games at this… well forget about it, GPUs aren’t there yet. And many gamers who invested in their GPUs could extend its life by buying the monitor im proposing.
In fact USB 3.2 is 20gb/s which is 2 gb more than HDMI2.0
I think with that extra 2gb you might be able to eek out say an extra 100p over hdmi2.0’s cap. this might allow for 3k @ 100hz which imo is huge.
if you can get gpu with a USB-C (non thunderbolt) port, you could maybe even get 4k @ 65fps.
It’s possible for a USB Type C port to send PCI-E data through the connection.
23" monitor at 4k
ppi for this is: 191.56
The EVE V has 281 PPI.
eve is 12.3 inches. it would take ~5 to fill 23 inch monitor.
but since we need ~190 ppi albeit at 100hz you would be able to produce say three 16inch tiles and squish them together. or 2 tiles or just the one would be ideal.
via USB C 3.2, or thunderbolt (probably overkill imo).
