The screen manufacturer AUO presented during Display Week two screens with an exceptional refresh rate: 480 Hz!
The screen manufacturer AUO was present at Display Week, a show dedicated to display technologies and presented two panels with a refresh rate of 480 Hz: impressive fluidity and which could arrive in some time on the market.
Dual displays with 480Hz refresh rate
Two slabs were presented at the show, identified by XDA Developers : a 24-inch PC gamer screen which will be intended for desktop monitors as well as a 16-inch version for gaming laptops. Their definition is Full HD, which is quite correct given the very high refresh rate of the screen.
As these screens are intended to be specialized and designed for video games, AUO uses IPS panels to maintain a fast response time. The manufacturer announces that the latter is less than 1 ms for the 24-inch version and between 1 and 2 ms for the 16-inch version.
When will 480Hz displays hit the market?
The interest of Display Week is that it is an event dedicated to professionals, where manufacturers present their innovations to manufacturers. These 480Hz displays from AUO won’t be hitting the market in a few months, but rather in a few years. For this, manufacturers must have the time to design screens and laptops with these panels. All while designing the display controllers and processors to match and optimized for that refresh rate.
Other screens presented by AUO during Display Week
The manufacturer did not announce these two slabs at the show. Other screens were presented, such as a 34-inch WQHD curved screen in 21: 9 format at 200 Hz which supports Display HDR 1000. To continue, we could see a 16-inch 2.5K screen with a definition Quad HD in 240 Hz, also HDR 1000.
Two panels that use AmLED technology, or Adaptive mini-LED: it allows higher contrast ratios as well as more vivid colors. Finally, a 4K panel in 160 Hz was presented.
However, AUO is not the only manufacturer to develop screens with a very high refresh rate: last July, we learned that LG would also be considering a 480 Hz screen. BOE unveiled in January 2022 a PC screen that goes up to 500 Hz.
