IPS, LCD, LED-backlit

IPS, LCD, LED-backlit

The type of technology used in the display.
Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
resolution

2560 x 1440px

3840 x 2160px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
pixel density

109ppi

157ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
has an IPS screen
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Samsung Odyssey G7 28" (G70A)
