We all know what the silver screen is, but only a few of us are lucky enough to get acquainted with big format gaming (yes, that’s what Nvidia really calls it). AU Optronics is perhaps going to change that with it’s newly announced 85-inch 4K panel, which makes headway by being capable of a 240 Hz refresh rate despite such a large size and high resolution.
Speaking in modest tones to DigiTimes at a press conference, AUO promised that its latest 85-inch panel should have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels along with a 240 Hz refresh rate. But there is a catch.
The announcement was made at a press conference in Taiwan, with a press release only made available to DigiTimes. AUO’s official website only mentions a 4K 85-inch LCD panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and no fancy backlight module for 2021. The panel that we are talking about claims to feature a higher refresh rate, although it does have the same size and the same resolution.
