Gaming monitors with even faster refresh rates could be on the horizon thanks to the latest developments from BOE, a display manufacturer headquartered in China.
According to a report shared on one of Sina’s aggregators, BOE has successfully produced a 27-inch, Full HD (1080p) panel that’s capable of refresh rates of over 500 Hz. Leveraging BOE’s new oxide semiconductor display technology, the display is said to offer true 8-bit output and one-millisecond response time.
“BOE has overcome the industry’s problems such as easy diffusion, easy oxidation and easy drilling of [copper] by designing a unique new stack structure of copper interconnection layered wiring oxide,” a portion of the article describing the company’s new breakthroughs in materials reads.
“It has mastered the independent high-volume Cu buffer layer technology, and took the lead in the industry to realize the oxide mass production of copper interconnect stack structure, and achieved large-scale mass production in six mass production lines of BOE in Hefei, Chongqing, Nanjing, and Chengdu.”
One of the fastest monitors that display enthusiasts can find on today’s market is Acer’s Nitro XV252Q F. This 25-inch, Full HD IPS display has a native refresh rate of 360 Hz, but it can be overclocked to 390 Hz.
