N(): is it possible to display less digits than those use to compute?

Is there a way to do numerical computations in a certain precision, while displaying a lower number of digits, for example if I want to output a matrix of a certain dimension, and I would prefer a consistent layout?

An example with another CAS is format short in Matlab and Octave, which allows to compute in double precision (15 or 16 digits) by displaying only 5 digits.

Thanks in advance.
