    Where are all the 3830x2400 monitors?
    I guess they are keeping the 1920x1200 monitors warm :P

    16:10 is better, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for affordable 16:10 monitors.

    As someone who actually owns this monitor, and codes at it 6 hours a day: You're full of shit. The sheer amount of available space (0.42 m2) makes specific aspect ratios utterly meaningless from an application usage standpoint, as games and videos are the only sensible things to run fullscreen. I currently have a number of small terminal windows in a line above my IDE, where they are out of the way. That space is so far above my normal line of sight that it is actually annoying to have something I'm regularly looking at there.

    I'd like to see older radeon cards with DP1.2 but i know you don't have a dp 4k monitor. I am waiting for the FOSS article.

    Thank you very much
