|Sharp says its new Games Player series of Aquos HDTVs is the first set of LCD displays to be built exclusively for gaming from the ground up. The Aquos GP3 series come in both 32" and 37" sizes. The pixel resolution for both types is 1920 x 1080, and the TVs have an 8500:1 dynamic contract ratio and a 6 millisecond response time.
The new series has a Vyper Drive Game Mode that’s designed to eliminate perceptible lag between the game console and the display on the TV. The Aquos gaming series also comes with a custom remote control that includes a special game button that allows users to quickly jump to the TV’s side terminals and activate the Vyper Drive. The displays also have three HDMI inputs, DVI-I and dual components connections that are all compatible with 1080p.
The Aquos GP3 series comes in three colors (dark red, black and white). The 37-inch model is priced at around $1,700 while the 32" version is priced at approximately $1,400.
