According to MacRumors,The report shows that although the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro share the same mini-LED display technology, the new Mac computers obviously do not have the floodlight effect found on the iPad Pro.
The NewMacBookPro and 12.9 inchiPadPro is equipped with a mini-LED screen with a local dimming area. These local dimming functions allow specific screen areas to be completely darkened when not needed, resulting in richer blacks and improved energy efficiency.
Unlike traditional displays that control individual pixels, displays with dimming areas control individual areas instead of individual pixels. If a dimming area is lit, its artifacts may be noticed in an adjacent area with a black background, resulting in a “blooming” floodlight effect, such as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro shown in the figure below.
This halo effect is usually only noticeable when viewing black content or text and viewing from the side.AppleIn response to this phenomenon in the past, the iPad Pro’s display is designed to minimize its visibility. Given that the new MacBook Pro announced last week includes the same mini-LED technology, some people have been worried about whether the new MacBooks will face the same problems.
According to user reports and comments, this does not seem to be the case. In his review of the new M1 Max 16-inch MacBook Pro, Brian Tong pointed out that although there is still a floodlight effect on the new display, it is only under the contrast of a “dark black background and bright white text or white logo.” will see”. In addition, Brian emphasized that when recording with a camera, the floodlight effect is exaggerated and will not be so obvious when viewed with the naked eye.
New users of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro are also sharing their thoughts on the MacRumors forum. Compared with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the new MacBook Pro makes better use of the mini-LED and dimming area. As one forum user wrote:
Overall, I think the IPP 12.9 display is great, but the XDR on the mbp is even better, because when I play HDR content, only the window part is super bright-everything looks bright on the iPad. On the display of the new mbp, you will not be affected. Perhaps the ghosting problem is annoying to some people, but in general, it is a great display.
Another user had the same idea. He said that despite some small floodlight effects, the new MacBook Pro display is “very great.”
Comparing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, the MacBook Pro is better. The phenomenon of blurring is much less, and the color is more prominent. In other words, they are all amazing screens. When I first used the iPad, its screen really impressed me. When I used the MacBook Pro for the first time, I was completely shocked. As a test, I played a4KHDR demo, its peak brightness, color and realism is one of the best screens I have seen on any screen (not considering the extreme high-endtelevision).
Michael Kukielka (DetroitBORG) pointed out on Twitter that the halo effect on the new MacBook Pro is almost “imperceptible” compared to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The Liquid Retina XDR display on the new MacBook Pros includes several new features, including higher continuous brightness and ProMotion for HDR content, allowing variable refresh rates up to 120Hz. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro includes 2500 dimming zones. Although it is not entirely clear how many dimming zones the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro have, it seems that Apple has improved its display technology with its new high-end Mac computers.
