AMD CES 2016 (2)

AMD Displays the Brightest Display Future I’ve Seen at CES 2016

4k is all the rage these days. Everyone is trying to get a single GPU to be able to play 60 FPS on a 4k display with modern titles. But what if I told you that you really don’t need 4k? You’d probably be asking me to show you the red and blue pills as well. The reality though is that in spite of all the 4k resolution displays and high definition VR experiences I saw, the thing that impressed me the most was a simple 1440p display that was absolutely gorgeous to look at. Oh, and I got to find out about some new CPUs and stock coolers as well. Let’s start out with this notion of unnecessary 4k resolution. There are two main details in display technology that are integral to a better viewing experience and I’m going to try to sum them up as basically as possible, with the understanding that I was able to muster. First, the display has to be manufactured as HDR. Simply put, it means that the display gives the widest range possible from lights and darks. OLED screens are great at this because they can dim individual pixels, hence the “High Dynamic Range” (HDR), so darks and lights contrast well. Also, the TV has to be programmed to support HDR so that it can properly display it. If this sounds difficult, this technology is actually already part of numerous displays in production from companies like LG. However, there is one other key component. Most pixels are designed to create colors using the RGB spectrum, but this standard has been around...
