Chinese language show specialist BOE has proven off a laptop computer with a 16-inch 600Hz show on the 2022 World Show Business Convention in Chengdu, China. The brand new panel makes use of BOE’s panel-accelerating oxide backplane tech, first seen in its 500Hz 27-inch desktop panel.

Whereas not precisely a family identify, BOE is in actual fact one of many world’s largest producers of show panels. Its LCD panels are utilized by a big selection of desktop monitor and laptop computer producers. When you personal a laptop computer from one of many huge boys like Dell or HP, there is a good likelihood it has a BOE panel.

Anyway, there is no launch date for the 600Hz 16-inch panel and, for now, additional specs reminiscent of decision, brightness and response stay a thriller. What we are able to say is that 600Hz means a brand new body rendered each 1.67ms. That is quite a lot of frames.

After all, the instant query is simply how related such a panel could be in the actual world, particularly in a laptop computer. It is onerous sufficient to think about a desktop GPU that is going to be kicking out the required 600fps in fashionable video games, not to mention a laptop computer chip. Even when such GPUs existed, it is likewise debatable whether or not the distinction between, say, 480Hz and 600Hz is one thing that the human eye and reflexes can truly respect.

Arguably of extra curiosity would be the response time of such a quick LCD panel. Whereas IPS panels with claimed response instances of 1ms are actually frequent, that measure is often for the grey-to-grey rise/fall time, which solely covers a part of the panels’ true pixel transition time. For an LCD panel to actually ship 600Hz, it’s going to seemingly want to come back a lot nearer to delivering real 1ms efficiency.

BOE additionally confirmed off quite a lot of additional new panels on the occasion, together with a brand new 34-inch 165Hz mini-LED ultra-wide mannequin and a 17.3-inch folding OLED panel.
