hey i have been planning to get a m1 MacBook air base but I have heard and read in forums that that the m1 MacBook air has pwm flickering i know almost all displays have it but can you please tell me if its bothering you or not? because the whole world uses retina macs, i have a laptop with a TN panel it does not have any pwm at any brightness level or I couldn’t notice it but please help me here as I no tech reviewer has talked about this and when out of nowhere I searched it I found something related to pwm on MacBook which was completely unexpected and now its bugging me and yea notebookcheck has written something about pwm which I couldn’t understand this is what it said please help me out here.
The display backlight flickers at 118000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 49 % (155 cd/m²) and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.
The frequency of 118000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.
Flickering occurs even at high brightness setting and may have an effect on the user during everyday use.
In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9717 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.
