This era is going well as far as it is concerned with monitors. With more OLED and mini LED displays coming your way, games have never attracted that much. Many companies dream to take 360Hz refresh rate even higher—to 480Hz. You will see 480Hz monitors in near future.
AU Optronics has done many experiments in high refresh-rate screens. Its IPS-like AHVA panel used in the Nitro XV252Q F is can reach 390Hz. That monitor is 24.5-inches, 1920 x 1080, and features a lightning-fast 0.5ms G2G response time. AU’s 480Hz panel may feature the same specs.
The report on LG Display provides a few more information. Its 480Hz/1080p panel will come in a 24.5-inch size only, at least in the beginning. It’s also listed with sRGB color gamut and DisplayHDR400 support. Also, LG has discussed optimizing its overdrive control to minimize ghosting and overshoot artifacts while offering a true 1ms GtG response time.
Just like AU Optronics, the monitor is listed for production next year, though LG gave a more specific “Q4” timeframe. It means there are fewer chances to see its [email protected] and planned [email protected]+ products until 2023.
Most people won’t think about shifting from 240Hz or 360Hz to 480Hz— many will not notice any difference—but these monitors will surely be a blessing to competitive gamers looking for an edge in FPS titles like CS: GO. Well, due to the used technology, they would be much expensive for 24.5-inch displays, too.
