QD-OLED, or Quantum Dot natural mild emitting diodes if you happen to’re feeling fancy, sounds to me like one thing Spielberg invented for his newest sci-fi installment. However after some delving, it is truly seeking to be one of the vital fascinating improvements we have seen within the gaming monitor area of current, bendable screens apart after all.
Samsung simply rolled up at CES 2022 with the Odyssey G8QNB gaming monitor, with its 175Hz refresh, vivid colors, and ultrawide 4K, curved design. However what I am most enthusiastic about is the very fact it really works on QD-OLED show know-how.
It is touting identical panel tech behind the brand new Alienware AW3423DW, additionally unveiled through the chaos of CES. For that cause, each technically maintain the title of world’s first Quantum Dot OLED gaming monitor. However, I assume it relies upon which one involves market first.
Both means, we have been exploring what makes the science behind this revolutionary panel so thrilling.
Now, the Quantum Dot idea has been round for some time, being utilized in QLED TVs and the like, however it’s the mix of Quantum Dot and OLED tech that makes this design fascinating.
OLED tech is spectacular by itself, providing higher distinction with darker blacks, because of its capability to modify LEDs off utterly in the dead of night areas of your picture with none blooming. QD-OLED, nevertheless, takes issues to a different stage, combining the distinction ranges of OLED with vivid and vibrant Quantum Dot tech.
For Quantum Dot panels, engineers make use of one thing affectionately dubbed ‘the sandwich.’
Samsung explains that its producers add nanoparticles to layers of movie, glass and filters throughout the panel. It is like sprinkling sesame seeds in between all of the layers of your sandwich, besides they’re solely seen underneath a microscope, and so they emit completely different colors if you shine sure mild frequencies by way of them.
Additionally, they are not seeds in any respect, they’re particles with “semiconductor properties,” which range in measurement relying on the color they’re meant to emit. “Bigger dots emit mild that’s skewed towards crimson, and progressively smaller dots emit mild that’s skewed extra towards inexperienced,” the insights submit elaborates.
In combining the supreme color gamuts of the QD tech, with natural, self emitting, blue lighting beneath it, you get one thing really thrilling. And apparently it’s better for your eyes because of its optimised blue mild publicity. Samsung has even boiled down the as soon as convoluted construction of the LCD Quantum Dot tech to incorporate fewer layers too, which means the panels could be a lot thinner than earlier than.
For gaming, this tech even guarantees sooner response occasions, at true 0.1ms G-t-G, and higher HDR. However I suppose we’ll uncover all this primary hand once we get an opportunity to check one.
Nicely, now I am feeling each excited for the way forward for gaming screens, and somewhat bit hungry for sammiches. Cheers Samsung.
