Intel partners with Samsung to halve the price of 4K monitors, but it’s useless without support from GPU vendors and Microsoft

Lenovo's ThinkVision 4K monitor with built-in Android
Intel wants to push Samsung and other vendors to dramatically cut the price of 4K panels and AIOs, but the company is targeting the wrong screen size for the effort. 24-inch panels are simply too small for 4x the resolution — and if you have to scale software upwards by 2-4x, you lose the advantages of the effect.
