The latest 24-inch 480Hz speaker from AUO is aimed at monitors, while the 16-inch speaker is designed for notebook displays. Both are advertised to have response times of up to 1 million words, full HD resolution, and use TN technology.
Since we''ve grown to see IPS and VA panels in many ways, it''s interesting to see TN still in use for high-end displays.
AUO didn''t mention when we''ll see the first displays on the market, although TFTCentral believes they will go into production sometime this year.
Check out the video of Hitting 360Hz with the Asus ROG Swift PG259QN.
Blurbusters developed a prototype 480Hz monitor a few years ago, although it was only capable of handling that refresh rate at a resolution of 960x540. In that article, they found that there is a noticeable difference between 240Hz and 480Hz, albeit with significantly decreasing returns.
There''s also the possibility that graphics cards can render games at such high frame rates. These displays will primarily be used for esports titles, such as Valorant and CS:GO, where hitting 500+ FPS at 1080p is possible with a decent GPU and the correct CPU.
AUO also showed off a couple of AmLED panels (Adaptive mini LED, not to be confused with AMOLED), a laptop display with integrated cameras designed to rid of lumps and bezels, several screens for automotive use, a color ChLC tablet panel, which uses ambient light instead of a backlight.
