Sounds like this chip may solve the drawbacks in DLP. Great, so when I'm ready
to upgrade in 3 or 4 years I should be able to find a 72" set that I can afford.

On a web post from the maker of an alternative 1080p chip technology it was
stated that the TI approach merely simulated 1080p resolutions. I don't know
if this is true or if it matters; but there you have it.

I have heard a similar story; but according to the press release it may
be the full 1920 x 1080 resolution.
"At the heart of every DLP chip is an array of up to 2 million
microscopic mirrors which switch incredibly fast to create a high
resolution, highly reliable, full color image."

Since 1920 X 1080 = 2,073,600 (2 million) pixels it would seem that the
new chip does support the full resolution, without the need to resort to
simulated techniques. Regardless if there are actually 2 million pixels
or a smaller array used in a clever way to simulate 2 million pixels,
the net result must be the full 1920 x 1080p resolution for the press
announcement to be truthful.

I have not kept up on the details, but the last I read, the 1920x1080
DLP chips were going to be 960x1080 actual mirrors. They use 1 mirror to
generate 2 pixels by flipping the mirror at a high speed between two
different angles to control 2 pixels on the screen. TI does this with
their lower cost 720p chipset which is 640x720 mirrors; the more
expensive HD2+ is 1280x720 mirrors which are generally regarded as
providing the better picture. Check the RPTV forum on www.avsforum.com,
should be more detailed info there.
