EXCLUSIVE! We have received a prototype 480 Hz monitor at Blur Busters. Sent to us in kit form, we are now currently testing — and an article is coming out shortly.

UPDATE 2017/08/17 -- Tests Now Up -- HERE!
A 4K 120Hz display with bonus 1080p 240Hz and 540p 480Hz modes

Follow Blur Busters on Twitter and Facebook, to watch for our upcoming article!

We are the world's first website to show pictures of the world’s first full-color 480 Hz capable LCD monitor that is not a laboratory display (e.g. Viewpixx 1440Hz DLP).

To help support the relaunched Blur Busters, please SHARE this blurbusters.com page.

Thanks,

Would be great if these were mass-produced, but I suspect the use cases for this are so few, that if this makes it out to market, it will come with an "extremely niche" price tag.

Can't wait for the results though.

In its basic DIY kit format, you'd be very surprised!
(Fancy preassembled will be more $$$ though)

Also, it's 4K 120Hz. Which is quite fine for desktop use.

High-Hz modes run in reduced-resolution.

Keep tuned.

Sadly my favorite high framerate game overwatch is limited to 300fps. Still if the final pixel response is good enough (Im assuming 2ms average or better) it would be a nice upgrade even from a 240hz. If it had gsync that would awesome as well but at a certain point you dont even need VRR technology.

No "official" VRR.

The panel technically (unofficially) supports FreeSync. I haven't tested.

But with their custom TCON circuit board needed for 480Hz, FreeSync may not work.

Technically, this piece of information is still under embargo.
I will reveal in my article.

Yes, it is 4K 120 Hz.

The higher Hz modes (240Hz thru 480Hz) operate at lower-resolution.

Article coming very shortly -- keep tuned!

Let's cut the crap and get to the chase. When the hell could we buy one? Should I be concerned this isn't Asus, Acer, BenQ, etc? Better not be 480hz at 720 too.
