Why does the Pro Display XDR cost more than the Mac Pro?

When Apple released the Pro Display XDR, I believe everyone has noticed that in the new products, the contrast can reach 1,000,000:1, which is OLED-level black and white contrast, which means that users can get theoretically infinite contrast on this display. There is true black performance, but the original XDR used by Apple was not achieved by using OLED, but by LCD technology.

OLED technology can bring the highest black-and-white contrast to users. The main reason is that each pixel emits light individually. When it is necessary to display black, OLED will directly turn off the black pixels. However, it has the fatal disadvantage that it is easy. There is a branding problem. The problem becomes more serious with long-term use. Professional users cannot use OLED displays because it takes a long time to display the timeline, toolbars, and even layers. Although LCDs rely on backlights to emit Different colors make up the image and cannot achieve true black, but the problem of branding is greatly reduced.

Apple's Pro Display XDR is designed for professional use, but in order to get a black performance like OLED, but it will not cause branding problems due to long-term use, so Apple uses new technology to design new displays, it is estimated Similar to the new LCD developed by Panasonic earlier, the new light adjustment layer is used to solve the light leakage problem of the LCD, so that the LCD display can get longer life and true black performance at the same time.

Of course, in order to reduce the reflection problems caused by light problems, Apple also added a new Nano-texture glass. Nano-texture glass has a special matte choice. It is etched into the glass with nano-level technology, which reduces New technology that unnecessarily fogs and shadows while maintaining contrast while dispersing light.

The above purpose is why the price of Pro Display XDR can be compared to the previous Mac Pro. It has 6K resolution, nano-texture glass, OLED-level black performance, and 1600 nits ultra-high brightness to bring stronger HDR. Performance, as well as the industry's top color correction, users who have requirements on the display, believe that Pro Display XDR is more attractive than Mac Pro itself.
