I don't know. All I know is that it is supposed to be able to be able to
do 1600 at 60hz, and 72hz, plus probably some others. You need 60hz
and 72hz at that resolution for film work. And you need 100hz for PAL work
(although 100hz is pretty high, and might require dropping resolution).
When I said my future 20" at 1600, I was thinking of on my linux machine. I
hope an O2 would be able to do the same. If not, I'd be force to continue
using the linux machine as a desktop machine for somethings.
