TN panels can use 360hz in some areas (mainly gtg scenarios), but it can pop up to over 4ms in some scenarios which is too slow (need at least 2.76ms for 360hz). Add in BFI and you'd need a panel that can refresh 1.38ms or lower (have to compensate for the black frames which basically doubles internal refresh rate). No LCD type panel can achieve that consistently. "Extreme" overdrive could drive down the response time slightly, but at the cost of bad overshoot. Not sure how this monitor will behave as far as response times goes, but the other HFR TNs out there have seem to hit a wall.
Most (all) overclocked panels with overdrive will run into the above because the pixels are too slow in some area of the color/shade spectrum. VAs are too slow in 0-20%, IPS is just slow overall (ie. consistently slow in all ranges) but overdrive and panel overclocking helps it out enough for ~120Hz spec, and TN is fast but not color accurate. Only OLED can give us the best response time currently and fully utilize >360Hz. Plus with OLED you have near perfect panel uniformity, better viewing angles, better colors, contrast, etc. etc.
I'm kind of interested to see how SVP scales to 360Hz, but that's probably really demanding on the graphics card. Trying to render 360fps with no framedrops while accounting for frametime spikes is a big challenge. You would need an average render time under 2ms at all times.
