TCL CSOT reveals the world’s first 4K 1000 Hz screen

TCL has shown us the future of high refresh rate gaming

TCL CSOT are pushing the boundaries of LCD technology, having showcased a 1000 Hz 4K gaming display that promises to deliver unparalleled levels of motion clarity. Today, 240Hz 4K screens and 1080p 500Hz displays are considered fast. TCL’s engineering efforts have now made both seem slow, delivering both a staggeringly high screen resolution and ultra-fast refresh rates on a single panel.

This screen was spotted at Display Week 2024 by Blur Busters, who have long championed high refresh rate screen technologies. This new 1000 Hz screen from TCL CSOT pushes the limits of screen technology in several ways. Critically, it will require higher data rates to deliver enough data to display 1000Hz content at this resolution. That means that we need a cable that offers more bandwidth than DisplayPort 2.1, and superior data compression techniques.

Below is what TCL CSOT had to say about their 1,000 Hz monitor.

The World’s Highest Refresh Rate 4K 1000Hz MNT, TCL CSOT’s groundbreaking innovation that is set to herald a new era in gaming. As the world’s first 4K 1000Hz ultra-high refresh rate gaming monitor, it is offering a glimpse into the future of esports. Engineered with TCL CSOT’s proprietary P2P national standard protocol (CSPI), it ensures unmatched performance and responsiveness. With industry-leading 6Gbps transmission and adaptive equalizer technology, users are able to immerse themselves in a game like never before.

TCL’s 1000 Hz screen shows us where display technology is going. Even so, it will be a while before we see monitors like this in the hands of gamers. Beyond that, we will need more powerful CPUs and graphics cards to run games at these speeds. Alternatively, innovations in Frame Generation techniques could help make ultra high refresh rate gaming and its motion clarity benefits more feasible.
