Dell 30″ OLED 4K monitor has motion blur reducing strobe mode

The Dell U3017Q monitor, while a 60Hz display, apparently has a motion blur reducing mode via a pulsed rolling-scan method. The blur-reducing modes can be accessed via the Dell monitor menus.

When this optional single-strobe mode is enabled, it does flicker a lot like a 60Hz CRT, but reduces OLED motion blur by a huge amount — approximately 75% less motion blur.

In theory, this Dell 30″ OLED monitor could be a Holy Grail non-CRT display for 60Hz gaming if you don’t mind flicker — e.g. 60fps-locked games, console gaming, MAME/arcade/emulators, 4K 60fps videos,  etc.

This 30 inch 4K OLED has 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

We hope such OLED monitors will eventually be made available as 120Hz+, with a 100% lag-less OLED rolling scan (pulsed) mode. Such a monitor could be the ultimate competition gaming/eSports monitor!




BREAKING: iPhone OLED will have low-persistence VR headset mode!

Many new exciting iPhone news in April 2017:

  1. Apple secret VR Project and VR patents
  2. Apple ordered 70 million OLEDs from Samsung
  3. Apple rumored 3D camera

Blur Busters analysis points to a low-persistence virtual reality headset mode coming to a future iPhone in the form of an optional rolling-scan (strobed) mode for iPhones. It would activate when running a VR application and used with an enhanced “Google Cardboard style” Apple VR headset.

OLED screens are also prone to display motion blur but is easily solved via a pulsed rolling-scan OLED mode. Rolling scan is currently done in Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, to eliminate display-induced motion blur during head-turning in a virtual world.
