This October Intel will be providing a driver update for Ivy Bridge that will enable 4K x 2K resolution support as well as hardware accelerated 4K video decode. You'll need to use two DP outputs to drive a 4K panel from an Ivy Bridge system, which unfortunately makes it so most existing Ivy Bridge systems won't be able to drive the higher resolution panels. 


Haswell will support driving a 4K display off of a single DP output or HDMI.

    Likely it'd come with a discrete card to drive a display of that resolution. As an all in one desktop, there wouldn't be the need to actively use Intel's integrated graphics internally. The integrated graphics can be used to help drive external displays though.

    I doubt they'd go all in on a 4k display for an all in one... It'd be the most expensive all-in-one on the market and a very niche product (anyone that actually wants a 4k display would probably want more GPU/CPU behind it, not to mention upgrade options).

    Cool! Anand, any details on that display in the photo? Curious to see what brands are coming out, etc.

    Quite a few notebooks running optimus/enduro (so using the intel chip) have DVI + HDMI + DP, can they drive one of these larger panels?

    Did they mention HD2500 or was it just the HD4000?
