19-inch 3ms LCDs debut
Formac today introduced its new Gallery TNX Performance displays, using a 19-inch TN LCD panel that trades a slight amount of color reproduction for a 3ms response time. Display manufacturers rarely publicize the type of LCD panels they use, which can cause serious difficulties for both artists and game players whose choice may hinge upon the choice of faster TN (twisted nematic) or more color-accurate PVA (patterned vertical alignment) panels, according to Electronista. The Gallery TNX Performance displays' 3ms response time eliminates ghosting in fast-action games as well as movies. A single cable provides data to an integrated two-port USB hub, DVI video, and power to the display. The Gallery TNX is shipping in the UK for £240, though a North American release date is yet to be announced.
