A very long time ago, we pointed you to a gorgeous 5-LCD display, the Athens Monitor, that turned out to be a cute little piece of vaporware. So, here’s hoping that the Zenview Powerscape Ultra HD display is an actual product, and not another clever bit of photoshopping. It combines four 20.1″ LCD screens in portrait mode, at 1200×1600 each, and one central panel with a huge 30″ workspace and 2560×1600 resolution, for a total 7360?1600 lines of resolution and almost two meters of screen real estate.
Of course, you won’t be able to display that many pixels without something serious under the hood. The company recommends two graphic cards: the NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT and the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCI. They also list a series of workstations guaranteed to work with the display, all of which will put a serious ding in your wallet.
How serious? The display itself is on special, at $5,900, while the cheapest station goes for $2,000. Seems like that’s the kind of cheddar you need to own the craziest freaking display on the market.
