Check out this innovative new monitor from Dell, sporting a 21:9 aspect ratio for 2560x1080 resolution across an expansive 29" screen. The U2913WM uses a gorgeous IPS screen with LED backlight and will put whatever is on your desk right now to shame.
Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.
This ratio monitor would be great for some types of work. Just think of the nice wide timelines when video or audio editing. It would also be great for previewing edits for movies intended for theatrical release.
However, this is really just for media professionals. If I was one I'd want one with a higher resolution.
mouse24Would this even be remotely usable for games? I would think it would "squish" your vertical view so badly it would be nigh unplayable.its about 1/3 wider than a standard 24 inch 1920x1080 monitor, for the price... its kind of reasonable.
you get a wider game (people play games with up to 5 monitors you know) so some people this may be a good monitor to upgrade to if they want the really wide screen.
