Smart chip stylus for Artist 12 (2nd Gen)
We have designed a smart chip that will dramatically upgrade the performance and structure of our stylus, enabling it to run like an artificial brain and deliver the most true-to-life experience possible. With this tiny new chip, stylus technology has never felt more natural and your creativity can be fully unleashed.
See below for details:
The new X3 smart chip accurately processes electromagnetic signals by encoding them into digital data. This change increases 10-fold* the sensitivity of the initial activation force (IAF to under three grams*), so your artwork can be produced with a featherlight stroke.
The X3 smart chip with its powerful computing ability gives the stylus an improved sensor structure. This change reduces the retraction distance to 0.6 mm*, resulting in a steady brushstroke without wobble.
Powered by the X3 smart chip, without the spring mechanism, the stylus performs better than any other existing XP-PEN stylus. With its 8192 pressure sensitivity levels and a 60-degree tilt function, you will have easy, intuitive control while creating artwork.
Thanks to the overall design of the X3 smart chip, the new stylus greatly optimizes its inner structure and eliminates the consumable spring components of previous designs. The new design will approximately double the life span of the stylus.
Full lamination & 127% sRGB wide color gamut.
With a wide color gamut of 127% sRGB*, the new Artist drawing monitor brings a vivid visual experience with brilliant colors and delicate details even on a dark night.
Full lamination is applied to the pen display to minimize parallax and provide more accuracy for a natural drawing experience.
Versatile shortcut keys.
The Artist 12 (2nd Gen) pen display features multi-customizable shortcut keys.
Customize your shortcut keys in your software application of choice to simplify your workflow and empower your productivity.
