Can it’s completed? Panel producer AU Optronics not too long ago unveiled a 500Hz esports gaming monitor in cooperation with Asus and Nvidia. In case that is not sufficient for some gamers, stories point out AUO is pushing that refresh fee even greater. However, some query whether or not present shopper graphics playing cards can attain these framerates.
According to a report from TFT Central, an inside roadmap from AU Optronics highlights a couple of upcoming high-resolution, high-refresh-rate monitor panels. With one among them, the corporate is attempting to achieve 540Hz however is but uncertain if it may possibly get there.
The panel marked as M241HTN01.0 often is the similar powering the ROG Swift 500Hz show that was unveiled by Asus, Nvidia and AUO in May throughout Computex. Like the Swift, this panel is supposed to energy a 24″ 1080p show. AUO pegs its latency at “under 3 milliseconds G2G” and “2ms on/off.”
TFT calculates that it might want to get below 1.85ms to realize 540Hz. The panel’s specs additionally embrace HDR, which isn’t talked about within the Swift announcement (although it might be “pretend” HDR).
Even in esports titles optimized for prime body charges, 540 FPS is a tall order, although options like Nvidia’s DLSS might put it inside attain of flagship graphics playing cards. Nvidia’s checks present Rainbow Six Siege can hit 281 fps at 4K with DLSS Performance mode (1080p inside decision). A Reddit submit has an RTX 3080 in 1440p DLSS Quality mode (additionally internally 1080p) managing a mean of 372fps and a most of 428.
AUO plans to begin producing the brand new panel in Q1 2023, by which era Nvidia RTX 4000 and AMD RX 7000 graphics playing cards needs to be right here. Perhaps one among them can obtain 500 or greater FPS. CPU energy additionally turns into a key think about delivering efficiency at resolutions that low and framerates that prime.
The different panels coming from AUO function extra attainable however nonetheless excessive refresh charges at greater resolutions. The roadmap mentions a number of 4K and ultrawide screens with refresh charges as much as 165Hz, an 8K 60Hz panel, and a 1440p 360Hz show. The firm additionally confirmed off 480Hz screens earlier this 12 months.
