According to the prior article linked within this one, these are using VA panels with a quantum dot filter, not TN. The "LED" part of "QLED" is just referring to them using an LED backlight, which are used by all modern IPS, VA and TN panels, all of which are variations of LCD panels. Likely, Samsung just picked the QLED name to be more marketable against OLED in the television space. OLED is a completely different technology though, with each pixel being its own light source.It's not an IPS or VA panel, it's a QLED panel, which is like an LED panel (TN) with "Quantum Dot" technology -- basically, a standard backlit LCD panel with a special layer between that allows the pixels to be blocked out completely, allowing for "true" black.
4K is not exactly ideal for today's gaming screens, as pushing frame rates much above 60fps is a challenge for even today's highest-end graphics cards at that resolution. And even if the next generation of graphics cards improve on that, it will be quickly countered by games becoming more demanding as they target the next generation of console hardware.No 4K?
Most curved monitors seem to be VA. Samsung is big on VA, especially toward the upper end of their range. IPS still cannot match the static contrast ratio.IPS? No 4K?
I don't see anywhere in the article that actually says they're VA.Weird that you didn't read the article.
Um, how do you get 4k from that? 4k seems most commonly used to mean 3840x2160. It's referring to the horizontal resolution being nearly 4000 pixels across. Crappy name, but using it to mean 5k x 1.4k seems a stretch too far. They don't even have the same number of pixels (3840x2160 has 12.5% more)!Yes 4K+( 5120 x 1440 ) later when the Odyssey G 9 comes out.
