HP has announced new printheads which will be blisteringly fast, and have 3,900 nozzles per printhead. The new printheads are made using a lithographic process so they do not have to be welded during manufacture, resulting in way more accurate placement of ink drops on the page.

It has taken 5 years and US$1.4 billion to produce. Initially the new printheads will only be available in high-end printers but will filter down to low end printers after a couple of years. It would be welcome especially for photo printing, which can be agonisingly slow on some printers. HP will be able to deliver more colours through one printhead with so many nozzles, speeding things up alot.

These printheads are now available for a range of HP printers:
