How close are we getting too 120hz IPS displays?

How close are we getting too 120hz IPS displays?

I am holding off on buying 120hz untill IPS panels are able to achive this. I have heard of the Korean models that can be overcloked but that is not really my style. I want a big box company to hit the market with a true IPS at 120hz. I think i might even jump on 3D if this happens. Very excited.

But when? stitchfacesmiley.png

I'm not aware of any 120 Hz IPS panels planned for release. However, there are 3D IPS panels from LG, but they are 60 Hz.

This is just speculation, but I'm not sure we will ever see 120Hz IPS panels. At least maybe not 120Hz IPS panels that are good for 3D. I base this on the response times of most IPS panels. Some are quiet good, but no where near the response times of 120Hz TN panels. Futhermore, the current generation of 120Hz TN panels still suffer from some mild crosstalk. Most of the faster IPS panels, mostly Dells, suffer from RTC artifacts, over drive trailing, and they have significantly slower pixel response times compared with the 120Hz TN panels. They generally look good in 2D, but probably would not do well in 3D.

I think for LCDs this may be it. Other technologies like OLED should be able to support higher refresh rates.

OLED technology is gonna be crazy expensive - until the time comes that O-LED production is cheaper, that is.

Acquiring IPS panels running @ 120hz may be just around the corner *wink*.

unless there is rumor about a release...i won't hold your breath...you're waiting on something you *think* will happen...not something that is being worked on....if you know what I mean.


That being said...am I the only one that thinks it's harder and harder to find 120hz monitors? some of the previous models have been discounted..and I haven't heard of any new 120hz monitors recently. it's slim pickings.

I don't understand the complication if Achieva can put parts that make it to 120hz in a $220 monitor what is the holdup? Well 3D may not be doable yet but definately 120hz would be easy on DisplayPort and there are countless benefits in 2D.

Not in the loop, are you guys? The 2b version of the Yamakasi will be up for sale again - soon. Although I really want to purchase one just for the 120hz goodness, I don't think it would be beneficial for me to get another 2560x1440 monitor since I have no more room on my desk for it. Further, my 580 won't be able to handle it. I'll just wait until the PCB in the 2b is available for sale then mod my ShiMian so I can attach that PCB on it so that my baby can also overclock to 120hz!

^ I thought I heard those Korean IPS monitors at 120hz (which has to be manual tweaked/overclocked to achieve, it comes with 60hz by default) do not look as smooth/fluid as TN 120hz. And apparently look better at 60hz: http://www.overclock.net/t/1250652/120hz-ips-vs-120hz-tn

"Regarding your question; the Catleaps don't blur at 60Hz, but rather they blur at 120Hz because the IPS panel can't keep up with the refresh rate due to its longer response time."

Perhaps the Yamakasi 2B verison will be different...though im not a fan of buying overseas with no warranty and questionable QA . tongue.gif

Either way..that's too many pixels for me...even the latest gfx cards will take a beating. 1200p for me! biggrin.gif

A TN Panel which is True 120hz will undoubtedly be smoother than an IPS panel running @ 120hz. Personally, I like my ShiMian just the way it is, just looking for new ways to improve it, plus i'm itching to fix that damn uneven lighting on really low brightness. Didn't bother doing it yet though as I don't set my brightness low enough to notice. With that being said, had I really wanted a true 120hz monitor I would have gone out and bought myself a Sammy 950D (only because 750D is not available in my country).

Probably not for a long time from any major distributor (think Dell, Samsung, NEC ect). I think the technology from display side is already available, however most IPS owners do not game and even those that do will have trouble running newest releases at 120fps steadily.

IPS can not max out 120fps yet. The average on these displays is 11-11.5ms which is 86-90 refreshes a second. Still setting 120hz should be much better than 60hz. Something like 85 or 100hz would be nice. It really does not cost any more for the circuitry.
