The 31.5 LG Gaming OLED panel with switchable refresh rate has entered mass production

The 31.5 LG Gaming OLED panel with switchable refresh rate has entered mass productionLG Display announced today that the first-ever 31.5-inch Gaming OLED panel with a switchable refresh rate and resolution has entered mass production of the panel this month, accelerating its push into the high-end gaming display market with new concept products. This groundbreaking 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. Such a display panel is used by the LG 32GS95UE which was unveiled at CES 2024. The Asus ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP is also expected to use this display panel.

In high refresh rate mode, users can enjoy games where speed and screen changes are particularly important, such as first-person shooter (FPS) or racing genres. Switching to high-resolution mode offers an exceptionally 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's advanced solution is Dynamic Frequency & Resolution (DFR), its own independently developed new technology. With the arrival of DFR, users can choose which to prioritize between refresh rate and resolution by adjusting the image processing speed. It has been applied for the first time with LG Display's 31.5-inch Gaming OLED panel.

The company's Gaming OLED panel is also equipped with other LG Display technologies to enhance its immersive experience. These include META Technology 2.0 based on the company's Micro Lens Array (MLA) innovation, which maximizes the emission of light from organic materials to elevate image quality. Also, Thin Actuator Sound technology, which directly generates sound from the screen without a separate speaker, has been adopted to provide more vivid sound.

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.

Unlike LCDs, which require backlighting, the company's Gaming OLED panels are self-emissive, enabling each pixel to produce perfect blacks and lifelike image quality. With an ultra-high refresh rate (480Hz), they also have the fastest response time (0.03ms) of any panel on the market.

Moreover, Gaming OLEDs have 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.
