HighDef Integer Scaled IPS Kit for Game Gear
Post Posted: Sun Dec 03, 2023 9:01 pm
This is a long awaited GameGear replacement screen by BennVenn!

https://bennvenn.myshopify.com/products/gamegear-hd-ips-kit-pre-order?pr_prod_strat=use_description&pr_rec_id=63f7a0214&pr_rec_pid=6859284480103&pr_ref_pid=6724996202599&pr_seq=uniform

Background. Existing replacement displays were not perfect so far. The problem is that the GGs screen resolution cannot be perfectly mapped on the resolution of the replacement displays without cropping the image. The new HD display allows interger scaled resolution (or at least deviation should be not noticable anymore due to the high resolution) without cropping the image.

I am not on BennVenns discord channel. If someone has more information than is visible on the webpage, I would be interested to read. Please post installation tutorials and experience videos. Also availability in Europe would be interesting.

There's links to EU sellers but they seem to be for the older panels.

The screen is described as 640x480 so presumably it's 3x vertically and 4x horizontally, which is a bit squashed. The comparison image (attached) seems to confirm this. I don’t think you should call it HD :) but it is undoubtedly better than non-integer scaling.
