As shared by @momomo_us on Twitter, (opens in new tab) ASRock has constructed a brand new accent for PC builders that permits you to flip your PC chassis’ aspect panel into an LCD monitor. The gadget is a 13.3′ aspect panel package designed to be tapped to the within of your see-through aspect panel, giving customers an extra show for monitoring system assets and temperatures or getting used as a secondary monitor altogether.
The display is a 16:9 side ratio 1080P IPS 60Hz show, measuring 13.3 inches diagonally. This display is the equal of a laptop computer show. It makes use of the identical connection technique as laptops, that includes an embedded DisplayPort (eDP) connector.
Sadly, this represents an issue for many PC customers. The connector was initially designed particularly for cellular, and embedded PC options, which means the connector will not be out there on normal desktop motherboards or graphics playing cards.
In consequence, solely ASRock motherboards help the aspect panel, and only some fashions at greatest, with lower than ten motherboards that includes the eDP connector. The checklist consists of the next motherboards: Z790 LiveMixer, Z790 Professional RS/D4, Z790M-ITX WiFi, Z790 Metal Legend WiFi, Z790 PG Lightning, Z790 Professional RS, Z790 PG Lightning/D4. H610M-ITX/eDP, and B650E PG-ITX WiFi.
Sadly adapters aren’t an answer both since eDP to DP (or some other show output) adapters do not exist right now. Moreover, creating an adapter is problematic as a result of eDP runs each energy and video indicators by a single cable.
It is a disgrace this accent will not get mainstream recognition resulting from these compatibility points. However for the few customers with the right motherboard, this aspect panel package can present a full secondary monitor that takes up no extra area in your desk. The one sacrifice you will make is obstructing all of the shiny RGB lighting inside your chassis.
