Display maker ViewSonic has announced what it claims is the highest resolution 19-inch LCD panel on the market today.

While the price will be announced closer to its launch date, ViewSonic's VX1940w is expected to appeal to those who have a limited desktop area but need a high-resolution screen for viewing multiple windows comfortably. The company, which said the monitor will roll out in selected markets starting next month, has also revealed that it plans to introduce new displays with "super-high resolution." (ViewSonic has been on something of a high-def roll lately, having just released a new line of PC-TV screens.)

The VX1940w supports a native widescreen resolution of 1,680x1,050 pixels with fast 2ms response time, 300 nits brightness and 3,000:1 contrast ratio. In comparison, current batches of 19-inch LCD monitors typically have a native resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. Only 20- and 22-inch flat-panel displays now offer 1,680 x 1,050-pixel resolution.
