Link is broken for both, should be this one https://www.overclock3d.net/news/sys...ucts_in_2020/1

MiniLED is Apple's own invention or is it similar to the MicroLED Samsung is working on? I haven't heard of MiniLED before.

Link fixed.

MiniLED is already a thing. It's basically a fancy FALD (full-array-local-dimming) backlight tech which ups the LED count in a big way by making the LEDs, well, Mini.

MiniLED is just an LCD display with full-area local dimming using lots of smaller LEDs than usual (Say a 40x25 grid of 1000 LEDs and up).

Oh I remember this now. Totally forgot about it. Thanks!

Surprised more companies aren't using it. It seems like a lot of benefits. May not get as black as an OLED but it would certainly come close. Though one other downside is local dimming increases input lag. Not sure if they addressed that with MiniLED.
