Here’s a 600Hz gaming laptop screen no one asked for


Chinese display specialist BOE has shown off a laptop with a 16-inch 600Hz display (opens in new tab) at the 2022 World Display Industry Conference in Chengdu, China. The new panel uses BOE’s panel-accelerating oxide backplane tech, first seen in its 500Hz 27-inch desktop panel.

While not exactly a household name, BOE is in fact one of the world’s largest manufacturers of display panels. Its LCD panels are used by a wide array of desktop monitor and laptop manufacturers. If you own a laptop from one of the big boys like Dell or HP, there’s a good chance it has a BOE panel.
