NZXT job listing suggests gaming displays are on the way

Posted on Monday, Mar 15 2021 @ 15:06 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
NZXT launched its first computer cases in 2004 and over the years the company branched out to other computer hardware categories, including power supplies, cooling, and even motherboards. Now there's some evidence that suggests NZXT plans to make its debut in the gaming display market.

NZXT seeks display engineer lead for future products

A job listing on Bamboo HR reveals NZXT is seeking a principle engineer for the development of display products. The job post is surprisingly detailed, it reveals the firm needs a lead engineer, who will be responsible for the development and qualification of Flat Panel Displays for desktop monitors and portable products. Of course, NZXT will not make display panels themselves. Like most gaming display makers, the firm will use panels from existing vendors like LG Display and AU Optronics.
JOB SUMMARY
The Display/Monitor Engineering Lead, Principal Engineer will be responsible for the development and qualification of Flat Panel Displays for desktop monitors and portable products. This individual will be working on flat panel displays, both at the component and system level. This role will work with the system design team, the EE team, mechanical team, the supply base management team and the display suppliers and will be managing all activities necessary to deliver the display system from initial concept into final products / mass production.

RESPONSIBILITIES
  • Investigate best display technologies from potential suppliers
  • Define the display specs for new NZXT projects
  • Participate in a cross-functional team working with EE, ME, FW, SW and Manufacturing
  • Manage the display suppliers as the primary technical contact window
  • Perform the necessary testing and review test results from the display vendors, system OEMs, and cross-functional groups at NZXT to ensure the performance specifications are met
  • Work with the display EE team to review driver validation and related display module performance
  • Identify engineering issues and drive them to closure in a timely fashion to support project needs
  • Ensure display deliverables are met for engineering builds and initial ramp
  • Address issues from initial ramp and field returns related to displays
  • Work on qualifying additional sources if required
  • System architecture, design, testing and program level execution decisions
  • It's unknown when we can expect the first display products from NZXT. The firm will join existing gaming-oriented players like MSI, AORUS (Gigabyte), Cooler Master, and others. Curiously, Corsair had a similar job posting in 2018, but so far that firm hasn't launched gaming displays yet.
