The “OLED and LCD Markets: Technology, Directions, and Market Analysis” report from The Information Network has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
This technology-marketing report analyzes and projects the technologies involved in the fabrication of OLEDs, Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD), and microLEDs. This report discusses the technology trends, products, applications, and suppliers of materials and equipment. A market forecast for display equipment and materials analyzed and forecast.
At its core, OLED picture quality is superior to LCD on brightness, uniformity, blackness, viewing angle, and contrast ratio and a key feature for mobile devices, as it reduces energy consumption, thus extending battery life. The higher 1000 pixel per inch (PPI) of OLED is crucial for virtual/augmented reality applications. Meanwhile, the refresh rate is multiples higher vs. LCD and critical for real-time gaming. That said, LCD is significantly better on price given the sheer production scale and sizeable competition in that market (vs.
Razer is launching new versions of its Razer Blade Stealth 13 gaming ultrabook this October.
The new versions include an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor.
One model will include an OLED Full HD touchscreen display.
Razer is holding its virtual RazerCon today, and it’s using the event to announce some new products. Perhaps the biggest news is that we are getting new versions of its Razer Blade Stealth 13 gaming ultrabook. The 3.1-pound aluminum Windows 10 laptop will have some hardware upgrades with two new models.

Both models will have the new 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor inside. The processor can run at a clock speed of 2.8GHz or as fast as 4.7GHz in Turbo mode. Both also have the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 TI graphics chip, with 4GB of video RAM. Both will also have 16GB
The saga surrounding incompatibilities between the new Nvidia RTX 30 graphics cards and LG’s 2019 and 2020 OLED TVs continues. This time, at least, the news is good – but not in the way LG’s most recent official statement on the subject said it would be!
As reported in my previous story on the RTX 30/LG OLED issues, what was supposed to happen according to LG’s statement late last Friday was this: First, a firmware update would be made available quickly for 2019’s 9-series models in Europe and the US that people with RTX 30 cards could obtain by contacting their local LG Service Centers. Second, owners of LG’s 2020 X Series OLEDs would get an update at an unspecified (but reasonably soon) future date that they’d be able to access as usual via LG websites or OTA updates direct to their TVs.
What’s actually happened, though, is rather different.
As I reported over the weekend, PC gamers have been experiencing a couple of significant problems when trying to use some of the high-end features of their new RTX 30 graphics cards with LG’s 2019 and 2020 OLED TVs. Happily, LG has already announced that it believes it can solve both problems, and intends to do so via a firmware update it intends to roll out ‘in the next few weeks’.
For those who missed my earlier story about the problems, they involve LG’s 2019 and 2020 OLEDs only showing a black screen when RTX 30 users try to activate G-Sync variable refresh rate technology on 120Hz outputs, regardless of bit depth or resolution; and LG’s 2020 OLED TVs downsampling RGB/120Hz/4:4:4 feeds to lower quality 4:2:2.
