For JDI's upcoming 1001ppi low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFT LCD display, its main feature is optimization of delay, only 2.2 milliseconds, and it can run at a refresh rate of 120Hz. PC VR headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift mainly run in a 90Hz environment. 90Hz is a necessary condition to reduce motion blur and screen flicker, while 60Hz is generally considered to be the minimum requirement for VR headsets.
The new display is slightly more compact than the previous 803ppi panel, which runs at a refresh rate of 90Hz, measures 3.6 inches, and has a resolution of 1920×2160. According to Yingwei.com, the new 1001ppi display has a resolution of 2160×2432, a resolution of 120Hz, and a size of 3.25 inches.
