LG.Phillips has announced that they will unveil their 14.3-inch E-paper display at CES 2008. The thin-film transistor panel - which is equivalent in size to an A4 sheet of paper - is capable of displaying 1280x800 pixels, the highest resolution ever seen on this type of device, and has the ability to display 16.7 million colors. LG.Phillips note that the screen's thickness is less than 300 micrometers, and can be viewed from a full 180 degrees.
AMD is reportedly set to announce the Radeon HD 3450 and HD 3470 on January 23rd, however as OCWorkbench report, they'll be taking them along to the Consumer Electronics Show 2008 in Las Vegas next week to give the public a glimpse. The board's specs are still hear-say at the present time, however the RV620 LE and RV620 Pro GPU's are 55nm, and include DX10.1, SM4.1, UVD, Powerplay and PCIe 2.0 support (DisplayPort also got a mention).
With the first DisplayPort monitors now on the market, Sparkle has announced an 8800 GT with a DisplayPort output, along with a regular DVI and an S-Video socket. Aside from the fancy DisplayPort, the board is just a regular 8800 GT with the addition of a bulky dual-slot cooler. Sparkle note that the one output is capable of simultaneously transmitting three 1080p digital video streams and 7.1 surround-sound at 10.8Gb/s.
Nvidia's plans for the first half of 2008, regarding the launch of the GeForce 9-series, have leaked around the net. As HardOCP point out, the 9-series is merely a 65nm refresh of the 8-series - no new technology is being introduced - just faster everything. We won't see a new architecture until the R700 is launched later this year; the site believe that's when Nvidia will unleash their "next-gen technology". Nvidia's roadmap can be found here.
The folks over at HardOCP have managed to score a few pictures of Nvidia's 65nm 9800 GX2 (which has had a promotion to the 9-series).The board will launch in late February / early March and replace the 8800 Ultra. HardOCP note that the board will perform at least 30% faster than the 8800 Ultra, include 256 stream processors and support quad-SLI. The clock speeds are still unknown, however PC Perspective seem to have an inkling...
