Can this do 120 Hz? What can one expect from this monitor in terms of maximum refresh rate?
I can tell you right now it won't be able to do 120hz
Well either way, what people want is to be able to have a 1440p, 1ms, 120 Hz monitor. If it's an ips, which I think is impossible, then that would mean there's actually a company out there who will actually make what people want.
I've heard recently that some people don't like the look of 120hz IPS because of pixel lag. I'm using it just fine and love mine, the colors and contrast of my BenQ XL2410T were atrocious enough that I'll gladly give up a bit in pixel speed to have IPS image quality. As far as I can tell pixel speed doesn't affect the primary benefits of using 120hz anyway (fast motion being rendered more accurately, just move your mouse in a circle quickly and you get the idea).
Peter, thanks so much for being involved in the forums. I think this might be an industry first to have someone from a panel manufacturer talking to consumers.
I guess I have two primary questions for the moment.
1. How much extra does it cost to put 120hz hardware in your panel?
2. Are there any inherent limitations preventing IPS panels from being driven at 120hz? (as noted above, I'm well aware of the pixel speed, and I don't consider that a problem)
From what I can see right now I can't think of any reason that every panel shouldn't be inherently capable of running at 120hz (barring cable bandwidth).
After the Catleap incident we know that some hardware inherently has this capability at no premium, but not all, and that it can be specifically put in place when people want it to. I'm guessing that the reason higher refresh rates were dropped in the first place is there wasn't any specific consumer demand for it, but right now I'm just wondering if there are technical reasons beyond that encouraging everything to run at just 60hz and not higher.
