Yes, of course it does, but I didn't see that unit used anywhere. Only Hz.

Interlaced refers to the fact that on Standard Definition displays, due to bandwidth restrains video data is encoded on an ODD/EVEN lines scheme, making use of the persistence of vision effect.
Progressive means that no ODD/EVEN scheme is used and all and all the screen is drawn in a single step (hence the name progressive...) this is what HD (High Definition) Television sets and computer displays use.
Sure, but there is also little point in aiming too high with the refresh rate, as a human being can't notice very fast visual changes anyway. At least not with those cells in our eyes that receive colour information, as they are slower than the cells that merely register luminance.
Because the progressive mode sends twice the bandwidth per frame it uses an horizontal transfer rate of 31Khz. The vertical refresh may vary from 30hz to 200hz depending on the display application (I believe the most a high end CRT display can do is 150hz)
Yes, now that you mention it I do realize that he meant the horizontal rates rather than the vertical rates, which I automatically assumed when he used Hz units rather than kHz.
So, the guy wanted to mention the 15khz/31khz thing but he missed the Kilo.
I suppose I should have seen what he really meant myself, but as usual I was making my posts towards the end of a looong day(s), and I'm not at my best at such times.
That is very true. There is a lot of unused potential in the PS2 console, which only a few of the latest generations of games began to use a little of, though none ever attempted to use it all (or even close to it).
Also it's interesting to see how the PS2 graphics chip was designed to operate on HDTV frequencies from the very beginning but the software was not. If SONY really wanted to it could push the PS2 a bit further than they did.
Yep, and after that they have continued to make one bad PS3 related decision after another, until we arrive at the current mess with at least 3 class-actions suits against them and most likely with more of the same to come...
They prefered to scrap it and mve on to the PS3 instead... lol
