Q: What is Generalized Timing Formula (GTF)?

Filed under FAQ / Timing


GTF is a standard method for generating general-purpose display timings. Allows for much greater flexibility in the choice of refresh rates and pixel formats than currently available with existing discrete monitor timings. GTF describes a computational method that will provide standardization, and yet also enable new features, such as user-defined image resolution and low-cost self alignment of display devices, to be added to graphics systems and monitors.
