[Tianji.com DIY Hardware Channel]On the first day of the Mid-Autumn Festival & National Day holiday, the author found that I was really getting up. FFALCON Thunderbird, which is famous for launching many “new geek TVs”, has launched a display product in its flagship store on platforms such as JD.com, and its first new product is the high-end Mini LED “hairtail screen” that is loved by gamers. The starting point is quite high. .
As an old player in the display equipment industry, the new monitor Q8 launched by FFALCON Thunderbird is not surprisingly closely related to the upstream company TCL Huaxing. The specifications are very familiar to me: 34 inches, 21:9 3440*1440 WQHD HVA soft screen with resolution, 170Hz refresh rate, 1500R curvature, static contrast ratio up to 4000:1, and equipped with QD quantum dot wide color gamut technology, DCI-P3 color gamut coverage of 97%, and equipped with hardware low blue light and other eye protection Function.
Even if there are slight differences in individual parameters, we can still find some products with similar screen hardware on the market, such as Lenovo Savior Y34W-30, etc. They use HVA screens also produced by TCL Huaxing, but they have poor color gamut and refresh rate. It is slightly inferior to the Thunderbird Q8 in terms of efficiency and other aspects, which can also be regarded as a small preferential treatment for one’s own family.
Compared with these similar products, the biggest improvement of Thunderbird Q8 lies in the backlight hardware. It is equipped with up to 1,152 backlight partitions and 2,304 Mini LED beads, bringing it a peak brightness of up to 1,600 nits and a dynamic contrast ratio of 100,000:1. The combination of three high-end image quality attributes makes it pass VESA DisplayHDR 1400 certification. It is also far superior to similar products.
In addition to the core screen and backlight hardware, the Thunderbird Q8 also has comprehensive peripheral configurations.In terms of interfaces, it is equipped with 2 HDMI 2.0, 1 DP 1.4 interface, and a USB Type-C interface that supports video signal transmission and 90W reverse fast charging, and supports PBP/PIP split screen; in addition, it is equipped with 2 USB3.0 Type-A interface and 1 USB3.0 Type-B upstream interface support KVM function. Multiple devices can be controlled by connecting a set of keyboard and mouse to the monitor; there is also 1earphoneinterface, as well as the 2*3W speakers built into the monitor, and the rich configuration is ready to use.
The last is the appearance design that I like the most. Thunderbird Q8 adopts the Wings of Light back design. It uses black and white contrasting colors to divide the back part of the display, and uses RGB ambient lights to embellish the outline of the white area and the bracket part. It is facing the left side of the display back panel. The “Premium Mini LED” nameplate on the side is also a hidden sliding shaft headphone hook, with a simple and practical design aesthetic.Monitor StandOn the whole, in order to firmly support the larger body and higher weight, a relatively thick body is required. However, combined with the design of the white back cover, RGB light strip, and V-shaped bottom support, the stability is still well balanced. , aesthetics and desktop occupancy.
This Thunderbird Q8 can be said to be FFALCON Thunderbird’s first public test in the display field. As a Mini LED curved fish screen with a high brush rate for gaming and high image quality, it has a high starting point, but it also needs to withstand the competition from consumers. The test of the market. The Thunderbird Q8 will go on sale at 8 pm on September 28, priced at 4,499 yuan. After the initial discount, the price is 3,999 yuan, and it can enjoy 6 interest-free periods and a three-year warranty. The price is slightly higher than similar products. product, but it has also been improved in terms of hardware and performance indicators. It is expected to perform better in gaming, entertainment and professional design. We will wait and see what its actual performance is.
