ROG solidifies its laptop display leadership with incredible Nebula and Nebula HDR panels

Jan 04, 2023 Written by:ROG Article

Your laptop’s display isn’t just a collection of lights and pixels—it's a window into a new world. And whether that world is consumed by war or ripe for adventure, you want to see it as vividly as possible. At ROG, we’ve always pushed the boundaries of display technology, and now, more of our laptops are boasting new panels that will bring those worlds to life like never before. 

ROG Nebula Displays set the new standard

When we at ROG think of what makes an incredible gaming display, three words come to mind: fast, bright, and vivid. High refresh rates are crucial for smooth motion and can mean the difference between victory and defeat, brightness adds punch and detail to an image, and stunning, accurate colors make an image look truly lifelike. So for 2022, we took those ideas and created an ideal gaming panel that we’re calling Nebula. 

Nebula is actually an entire certification for laptop gaming displays. All Nebula displays require 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space for vivid colors, at lesat 500 nits of brightness, and a fast refresh rate with a 3ms response time or less. They’re Pantone® Validated, ensuring you see colors exactly as the creator intended, and support Dolby Vision HDR for games and movies. With Adaptive-Sync, motion will stay smooth, consistent, and tear-free. And Nebula displays have received TÜV Certification for their low blue light and flicker reduction. 

You’ll find Nebula display options on most of our 2023 laptops, including the Strix SCAR 16 and 18, Strix G16 and G18, Zephyrus M16, Zephyrus G16, Zephyrus G14, Flow X13, Flow Z13, and Flow X16. 

ROG Nebula HDR goes deeper with Mini LED

When you buy a laptop with a Nebula display, you know it’s going to be one of the best. But as HDR games and movies become even more popular, we wanted to create a truly cutting-edge panel that brings that content to life. We call it Nebula HDR.   

Nebula HDR boasts the same 100% DCI-P3 coverage and 3ms response time as other Nebula displays. But Nebula HDR also leverages stunning Mini LED panels for up to 1100 nits of peak brightness for an out-of-this-world HDR experience. Nebula HDR displays can have hundreds, if not thousands, of separate dimming zones in a single panel, for deep blacks alongside those bright highlights.  

But we added our own special sauce to this creation, too. Our Nebula HDR engine raises the bar with a 5400Hz polling rate, 10 times more than typical displays. We’ve further refined the local dimming algorithm by painstakingly profiling images and videos to adjust how they appear on screen. The Nebula HDR engine processes 250 images per second to reduce blooming and haloing by 26%, for staggering contrast and an image that pops right off the screen. 

With HDR movies and games becoming the new benchmark, Nebula HDR is ready to showcase modern content like never before. Nebula HDR displays are ready to knock your socks off no matter what you throw on them. 

A new universe awaits

At ROG, we’re never content to rest on our laurels. We're constantly pushing the boundaries of what a laptop display can be, from faster panels to deeper HDR experiences. Whether you’re a competitive esports player or a content professional looking to create rich worlds of your own, we’re setting the standard for performance.
