Having these options would at least lower lag on x1 extreme tvs for not needing to output at 1080p to get 444 with hdr, and eliminate double scaling. Can't comment on 8bit plus dithering as I haven’t seen it to compare, but options are good.
Seems like UK is getting the bulk of ips panels compared to US, not a good thing.
24 zones on 55 x90j bro. Twenty. Four. I could have understood 60, and z9f zone count for x95j. But damn are they not trying or what. I guess it’s easier to make a gimmicky image processor than to improve the panel.
Hoping for an x90k mini led 4k set with no x wide angle film, with hgig and over 1000 nits ; would be the ultimate small lcd for gaming.
They should also make an 8k mini led with backlight master drive. But who are we kidding, i’ll be surprised if we don’t see 16 zones on the x90k xD
Yeah thats rubbish, I might be thinking of the 65" then. Either way though, I think 48 zones is a good minimum for 55", thats what the XF90 has in 55". Even the 2017 XE90 has more than 24 zones.
The dithering you can see on Win10, when you have HDMI 2.0 and turn on HDR for a 4K@60hz output it will default to RGB with 8-bit + dithering instead of 422 with 10-bit. You can go into NVCPL and force 422 + 10-bit (or even 12-bit), I read around for a day or two and general internet consenus was that its hard to tell the difference between 8-bit + dithering and true 10-bit even on a true 10-bit panel, banding can even be better with 8+dithering for "reasons".
Not sure how that affects the colour reproduction for human eyes (vs. figures on paper), like if you don't see the fully potential glory of the added BT.2020 colour gamut with dithering, but banding is definitely not an issue from what I've read.
