Nvidia's upcoming Pascal architecture offers some amazing specifications, which are no doubt a lot higher than what many in the industry had originally expected. 

Pascal will not just be offering greater performance per watt than Maxwell, with one of the most noteworthy changes made with this new generation of GPUs being support for next generation display technology with DisplayPort 1.3 and HDMI 2.0b, offering HDR support and allowing Pascal GPUs to support 1080p and 1440p displays at 240Hz, ultra-wide 1440p displays at 190Hz and 4K displays at up to 120Hz. 

This support allows monitor manufacturers to create and sell faster displays than what currently exists today, which will be a great thing for competitive gamers who wish to have the fastest response times and lowest latency. 

  Nvidia's GTX 1080 and 1070 will support HDR and refresh rates of up to 240Hz  

Right now Nvidia even stated that their GTX 1080 and 1070 are also DisplayPort 1.4 ready, which is a new DisplayPort standard that was only created back in March, allowing resolutions of up to 4K 120Hz with HDR and double the bandwidth of DisplayPort 1.3. 

DisplayPort 1.4 is not a massive change from DisplayPort 1.3, adding VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC), which is a compression method that VESA claim is virtually lossless and allows resolutions of up to 8K 60Hz with a single cable. 

Given that DisplayPort 1.4 is a data compression change all GPUs with support for DisplayPort 1.3 is expected to have DisplayPort 1.4 support.

240Hz? I guess the world is full of top gun pilots... Though I can understand it if [email protected] is necessary for [email protected]Quote
