MSI is showcasing the Creator 17 laptop at CES 2020, which it says is the “world’s very first” laptop to feature a Mini LED display.
By using much smaller LEDs as a backlight, the laptop’s 17-inch 4K display can dim and brighten with much more accuracy than LCD displays with a traditional LED backlight.
The display has 240 local dimming zones, according to MSI, which is a lot considering its 17-inch size. For comparison, Apple’s 6K $6,000 XDR display has 576 dimming zones, but it’s almost double the size at 32 inches.
MSI also boasts that the Creator 17’s screen can display 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and can get as bright as 1000 nits.
MicroLED aims to offer a similar level of performance to OLED, without the brightness limitations or problems with burn-in.
MSI is yet to announce a release date or pricing details for the Creator 17.
