Re: New term: "Frame Rate Amplification" (1000fps in cheap G

The cynic in me thinks it's unlikely that big GPU manufacturers would back this type of shortcut to improving framerates, as it would cannibalize their sales. For example, why pay for a 1080 ti that can hit an average of 50 fps on a 4K game, which then gets interpolated to 60 fps by some additional ...

Re: Is Local Dimming/Quantum Dots Really a Good Thing?

Another good thing about local dimming, if it hasn't already been mentioned (probably has), is that low motion blur / persistence modes can do rolling scan from the top to bottom of each row of LEDs in the backlight.

Re: Is Local Dimming/Quantum Dots Really a Good Thing?

FALD is basically a necessity for decent HDR on LCDs, they just don't have the native contrast to do HDR justice using edge-lit (though there are some edge-lit HDR capable TVs now). FALD + Quantum dots have nothing to do with one another. The individual LEDs in FALD, are huge, and quantum dots are v...

Re: 4K DLP hack for 120 fps -- [for TI 4K projectors]

For anyone interested, the new BenQ "4K" or "FauxK" DLP projector, model name w1700 (Europe) / HT2550 (US) uses a 1080p DMD and quad pixel shifting, operating at 240hz internally. I wrote a proof of concept to see if, when you feed a custom packed 1:1 signal (8-bit 4:4:4 or RGB at 4K60) that you can...
