No, the only hardware-based resolution limitation on these Ultrabooks (or any laptop for that matter) are the LCDs themselves.Guest said:
I suspect the 1330x768 is dictated by some existing CPU/GPU combo chip they are all using. .
It does not matter if your graphics card supports (∞ - 1) x (∞ - 1) if your display will only handle 1024x768 or 1366x768 for that matter...Guest said:
guys, don't forget about the new 4k x 4k (aka "Natural" rez) video resolution that intel will be supporting in their ivy bridge processors; and obviously, to take full advantage of that, you'd need a monitor that can display 4,000 x 4,000.
basically, there's a lot of growth opportunity!! \o/
You see no difference? really? Ok on both machines open up a few programs, maybe word, excel, power point, Firefox (or your preferred browser) and iTunes or what ever else you have, now bring up 4 of them onto the screen at the same time, one in each corner, how much more information can the 1080p screen view at the same time? If you still see no difference your other screen isn't 1080p.Guest said:
I have a high end portable laptop with a 1366x768 resolution screen and comparing that to my 1920x1080 monitor, I see no immediate differences other than the aspect ratio.
