Next-generation graphics playing cards from AMD and NVIDIA are across the nook, and apparently so are gaming screens with refresh charges that can make upcoming GPUs break a sweat. AU Optronics, one of many greatest show makers on this planet, is claimed to be creating a panel that may hit an extremely quick 540Hz refresh fee.
Generally talking, that type of pace will tax even NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, and that can nearly definitely be the case with the eventual GeForce RTX 4090 Ti regardless of how a lot muscle Ada Lovelace flexes. There will probably be outliers, in fact—esports titles are usually much less demanding, and may a 540Hz show emerge, it’ll nearly undoubtedly be a 1080p panel as an alternative of 1440p or 4K.
AU Optronics is identical panel maker that collaborated with NVIDIA and ASUS on a 500Hz gaming monitor, the aptly named ROG Swift 500Hz. That employs what they’re collectively calling a brand new Esports TN (E-TN) display screen.
“In competitive, intense firefights, every single millisecond counts. The ROG Swift 500Hz draws frames more than eight times faster than typical 60Hz displays in a single second, which means you have that much more time to get a leg up on your opponent in esports titles like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valorant, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege,” ASUS mentioned on the time.

NVIDIA has a vested curiosity in larger pace screens and has repeatedly claimed that ultra-high refresh charges make a distinction in gaming. In the video above, NVIDIA demonstrates how a quicker refresh fee could make it simpler to trace targets, see enemies earlier, and scale back visible distractions. And naturally, ou
According to MyDrivers, AU Optronics is creating a fair quicker show. And along with a 540Hz panel, it is also mentioned to be engaged on a 4K panel with a 240Hz refresh fee (Samsung has been there and performed that with its Neo G8 4K Mini LED monitor), and a 2K show with a 360Hz display screen.
At this fee, it in all probability will not be all that lengthy earlier than monitor makers tout a 600Hz refresh fee, and even larger. We’ll see if advances in GPUs can sustain.
