AU Optronics has begun the development of a 540 Hz panel designed for competitive gaming, according to a report shared on Chinese technology site MyDrivers that discusses some of the display manufacturer’s upcoming projects. The exact specifications of this panel are unknown at this time, but MyDrivers expects that the display will probably leverage some form of overclocking, which would come as no surprise based on its ultra-fast refresh rate, which is substantially higher than even the fastest monitors available on today’s market. It was just last month that AU Optronics shared a promotional video teasing some of its upcoming premium LCD displays, including 4K 240 Hz, 1440p 360 Hz, and 1080p 480 Hz panels. The foremost combination is already available to gamers in the form of Samsung’s Odyssey Neo G8, a 32-inch curved monitor that the company recently launched for $1,499.99.

For players, the visual effect brought by high-speed refresh may be better, but the high-speed refresh of hundreds of Hz has high performance requirements on the platform. Some people have tested 500Hz high-speed display before, using Core i9-12900K , 32GB DDR5 The game PC including memory and RTX 3090 graphics card has been verified. Even if the lowest picture quality is turned on, the frame rate at FHD resolution is only 343 frames.

In short, even with a 540Hz high-brush gaming monitor, it is very difficult to achieve this performance. RTX 3090 or RTX 3090 Ti -level graphics cards are difficult, and the next generation of RTX 4090 Ti may have a show.
