Sony announced its 2021 lineup of TVs that will all include a new processor called the Cognitive Processor XR, a successor to the long-running x1 chip
Processor XR, which will replace the X1 chip that has been in service for many
years promises brightness values over 1000 nits in OLED televisions.
Japanese technology giant Sony has announced the successor of X1 chips, which have been powering their products for a long time, along with the next generation television series in 2021. The new generation processor called Cognitive Processor XR promises much brighter images, especially in OLED TVs.
The processor to be used in Z9J Master Series, X975J, and X90J LED-LCD and A80J and A90J OLED televisions stands out with its much higher quality upscaling, high-level color performance, and improved contrast ratios. However, it is stated that the A90J OLED TV will receive the highest level of improvement provided by the new processor. According to Sony officials, the model in question could be the first OLED TV to cross the 1.00 nit peak brightness limit when combined with another new generation technology developed by the company.
Another technology that Sony will use in OLED TVs is a newly developed method of heat dissipation. According to the authorities, much brighter images can be obtained in HDR content with the method that enables RGB and white sub-pixels to work at the same time at the highest energy level.
The XR processor will not only stand out in the image improvement level. The processor, which will also offer improvements in sound, will be able to upscale two-channel or 5.1-channel sounds to a much more realistic 5.1.2 channel. The pricing for TVs that will use the new processor is not yet clear. However, we will be able to see the processor that Sony will prefer primarily for products in the top segment, in the relatively affordable 50 ”X90J LED-LCD TVs.
