UT Austin creates world’s highest resolution tiled display: Stallion

If you thought 220 million pixels was a lot, well, you’d be right. But given how things are in Texas relative to everything else, we’d say there’s no denying that 307 million pixels is indeed a lot more. Dubbed the world’s highest resolution tiled display, Stallion has just been unveiled by the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin. Designed for studying diminutive cells and checking out old game footage, the system boasts 75 Dell 30-inch LCDs, each of which has a native resolution of 2,560 x 1,600. It also packs 36GB of graphics memory, 108GB of system memory and 100 processing cores. And just think — if the Longhorns could get that one game back against the Red Raiders, every fan within a 10-mile radius of Austin could see their team in the championship game on this thing.
