Do you know where I might be able to get a dp1.2 controller to suit?
Any help would be great thanks
These 4K panels that also claim 120hz may very well be 120hz BUT you have to down the resolution to 1080p to get there. Much like the Seike 4K panel these offer 3840x2160@30hz or by decreasing the resolution by a forth you can multiply the refresh by 4 to 120hz(a simple trade off in the data stream). So your choices are 1080p@120hz or 2160p@30hz(4K) which both will have the same pixel clock(roughly).
This could be neat to use given it will give you a TV size screen with true 120hz refresh and most panels are 1080p anyway. And on the other note you can up the resolution(thus lowering the refresh) and do 4K when you want more screen real estate(or play in console refresh mode:rolleyes: ).
I can't say for certain about the panels you listed but the seike panel had an unlocked PCB and could be manipulated with custom resolutions. If i remember correctly a member was able to even lower the resolution to 720p and get the panel to run at a true 240hz(EDIT: this was the skyworth not the seike).
Overall i don't see why you wouldn't be able to but no-one(that i can find) has tried it yet, so no one can say for sure. If you buy the panels and try it i would hope that you post your results so OCN will have a definitive answer for this question moving forward. Mechanically there is no reason it wouldn't work.
