A few years ago we saw how preliminary tests were carried out on the first 4K 120Hz panel, which also stood out for being able to reach 480Hz in a low resolution mode at 540p. While these ultra-fast monitors were limited at first for tech DIYers and testers, according to the latest report shared from TFTCentral, 480Hz panels could soon become a reality for consumers.
As stated in this leak, LG Display and AU Optronics (better known as AUO), would already be working on these ultra-fast refresh rate panels, which will apparently be ready to go into production by the end of 2022, delaying their general launch. approximately early 2023.
In this way, entering the speculative terrain, it would not be surprising if we saw these 480Hz displays within the framework of CES 2023As we saw recently with the first 360Hz panels introduced by ASUS and Nvidia, with the first showing of the ROG SWIFT 360Hz PG259QN at CES 2020, setting the current ceiling for ultra-fast monitors.
Unfortunately, in terms of features not too many details are known yet, but the report claims that the LG 480Hz panel will feature a display 24.5-inch 1080p with support for DisplayHDR 400, thus ensuring a fairly decent color reproduction. On the AUO side, the details are even scarcer for its 480Hz panel, with only a first hint pointing to the use of an IPS-type 1080p screen as well.
However, from the web SweClockers They add that the Korean company is also working on a panel of 1440p at 360Hz for a launch before the end of the current year. Finally, this report also anticipates that LG, supposedly, would be developing a new technology called “IPS Black” which will be able to produce richer blacks on IPS LCD screens and reduce the amount of IPS brightness displayed, a technology it plans to launch on its upcoming dated 27-inch and 31.5-inch 4K displays. for january next year.
While these blazing-fast monitors would still be out of this new 480Hz family, it would be no wonder that the company take advantage of this new technology in your rear panels.
