    I know the Japanese are experimenting with ultra/mega HD, or whatever it's called, so what video codec are they using to watch it?..... anything out there on the web that uses the full spec of the new imac screen?

    If I am not mistaken, virtually ANY video card can do 2560x1440, at least any nvidia series 6XXX up, including the low end models

    If you double up and antialias your 720p video, it will be 2560x1440 :D

    The resolution in 27" iMac is made just for it, there was no 2560x1440 before the iMac came out! There might be games that support it but seriously, that's very uncommon resolution.

    I doubt you can find a video which has the right resolution or even something which is near it. 1080p is the best consumer resolution in videos atm.

    I know its not 1440p, but 1080p looks DAMN good on the new iMac!
