In the Gen 8.5 factory Kameyama II finally run the tapes: As the Japanese LCD specialist Sharp announced, are now produced high-resolution LCDs with the so-called IGZO technology. These are panels with pixel transistors whose channel consists of a combination of indium gallium and zinc. Because they are up to 50 times better than conventional amorphous silicon TFTs, they provide more power and can be significantly more compact.“
Correct is, that by that time they produced small panels for smartphones and 32” only. And it is true, that nobody could read and keep in mind all those changing news in IT that reach us dayly. I did not read all the posts for EVE that were written before I joined the community., so please don’t criticise too hard for that.
but in my active times, when I was responsible for special aspects, I searched and gathered any info I could get and reported it. Similar will be done even today, I am sure. And you are right when you say that I should not open my mouth so wide as long as I am no active “EVE man” but a man with just private interests (and many others!) now that my career had ended.
