Processor Performance

VIZIO's new line of TVs add best-in-class picture performance and intelligence, thanks to the all-new new IQ Ultra and IQ Active processors, alongside powerful new gaming engines3With superb 64-bit image processing, the all-new VIZIO IQ processors have the power to provide pixel-level contrast enhancement that gives every image more depth and dimension. A smarter 3D color engine offers more vibrant and nuanced colors. The lightning fast 1GHz CPU can smooth contours and gradients in real time for natural-looking images, while the multi- step algorithms more accurately upscale HD/FHD to 4K resolution, reduce noise and artifacts, and intelligently smooth diagonal edges, creating a sharper, cleaner image.

The ProGaming Engine's faster response time and the lower input lag further improve image detail so users can better see all the action and respond more decisively. In addition, Auto Game Mode with auto low latency is engaged automatically for game content, so users can enjoy the best possible experience for every game, while utilizing premium picture modes for watching movies.
