LG Display, the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, revealed that the company has developed the first-ever Gaming OLED panel with a switchable refresh rate and resolution.

According to the company’s official statement, it has begun mass production of the 31.5-inch panel this month, accelerating its push into the high-end gaming display market with fresh concept products.

This cutting-edge Gaming OLED panel allows users to choose between a high refresh rate (FHD∙480Hz) and a high-resolution mode (UHD∙240Hz) depending on the content. In high refresh rate mode, users can enjoy games with significant speed and screen changes, such as first-person shooter (FPS) or racing genres.

Switching to high-resolution mode offers users an incredibly immersive experience watching movies with rich visual effects or high-definition 4K content. By comparison, conventional panels have a fixed resolution even when the refresh rate is changed, limiting their versatility for multiple applications.

‘Refresh rate refers to the number of images displayed on a monitor per second, while resolution represents the number of pixels that a screen can show. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother and sharper the images appear even during fast screen transitions, while a higher resolution enables more precise video and image quality.’

LG Display Gaming OLED Elevated with LG Technology

On top of that, the product features LG Display’s advanced solution and its own independently developed new technology, Dynamic Frequency & Resolution (DFR).

With the arrival of DFR, users can choose which to prioritise between refresh rate and resolution by adjusting the image processing speed. Before this, it was applied for the first time with LG Display’s 31.5-inch Gaming OLED panel.

Moreover, the company’s Gaming OLED panel is also equipped with other LG Display technologies to elevate its immersive experience.

These include META Technology 2.0, based on the company’s Micro Lens Array (MLA) innovation, which maximises light emission from organic materials to enhance image quality.

Further, the groundbreaking product also features Thin Actuator Sound technology to provide more vivid sound. This feature directly generates sound from the screen without a separate speaker.

Revolutionising Gaming World 

LG Display plans to supply its new 31.5-inch Gaming OLED panel to global gaming gear brands, starting with LG Electronics. The company is accelerating its expansion into the high-end gaming display market this year with a full lineup of Gaming OLED panels spanning 27, 31.5, 34, 39, and 45 inches.

Not only that, but the company’s Gaming OLED panels are also self-emissive, enabling each pixel to produce perfect blacks and lifelike image quality, in contrast to LCDs, which require backlighting.

Additionally, with an ultra-high refresh rate (480Hz), they have the fastest response time (0.03ms) of any panel on the market.

Also, the product has less potential to cause eye fatigue than LCD screens, even during long gaming sessions, as they emit half the amount of blue light and produce no headache-associated flicker.

Commenting on the Gaming OLED, Won-seok Kang, Vice President and Head of the Large Display Product Planning Division at LG Display, said,

“We will create new customer value with OLED’s differentiated technologies – such as by offering perfect blacks, fast response times, and ultra-high refresh rates – and strengthen our leadership in the high-end gaming display market.”
