EVGA InterView  (Source: EVGA)
InterView sports dual 17-inch LCD screens

EVGA is a company that is closely associated with video cards in the computer world. The company is one of the most well-known firms offering NVIDIA video cards, especially video cards that are overclocked from the factory.

What most enthusiasts won’t associate with EVGA is computer monitors. EVGA has announced a new dual screen LCD called the EVGA InterView. The InterView has dual displays that sport a resolution of 1440 x 900 each and a 1.3-megapixel webcam between the two displays.

One of the coolest features of the InterView is that both of the displays can be rotated 180 degrees and the screen flips the content intelligently so you can rotate a screen to share information with a person on the other side of a desk. The monitors can be mirrored or the desktop can be extended across both screens.

The dual screens are 17-inch units with bezels between the two that puts space between the screens, which could be an issue for users looking to extend the desktop to two screens. Each screen has a pixel pitch of 0.255mm x 0.255mm and a contrast ratio of 500:1 with a brightness of 220CD/m. The average response time is quoted at 8ms. The Interview system weighs 17.46 pounds.

HotHardware has a review of the InterView up and the system carries a retail price of $649.99, a premium over a typical pair of 17-inch LCDs. All of the controls for the LCDs are on the base of the device. The input is DVI only and you have to have a video card that offers dual DVI outputs. That means that notebooks are going to need extra hardware.

This isn't meant for gaming guys

just cause it comes from EVGA people shouldn't quickly jump to gaming, this would work well in buisness and for some enthusists

first off you'll never want to use 2 monitors for spaning a game across both screens...it doesn't mater how small your bezel is, your crosshair, or your point of focus will almost always be in the center, and even if you play an rts, the center is still where the camera puts your units in many instances...

so regardless of the bezel or blah blah blah, for gaming you either go single or triple monitor...anyone else is just fooling themselves thinking they have a sweet setup.

for desktop applications, buisness or other things, this is just fine...rarely do you ever span something across both monitors anyway so again, the bezel isn't a big issue...most people out there that are running dual monitors right now i'm pretty sure generally run them as two seperate monitors not cloned or spanned.

anyway for buisness especially team meetings, sales desk and such this would be a great setup...it allows you to work on your screen and swivel around the other screen, even turn it for the audience...thats the big feature of the stand, its not that it holds two monitors, it that it allows you to swivel it around to the two monitors are almost back to back, try that with two seperate monitors, 24" or not, and the stands and cables and such will make it kinda awkward, especially for professional buisness applications.

so anyway, i see a use for this, but sorry, no its not for your WoW.
