Question Question about connecting e-ink display

Hello,

I've got a question about connecting e-ink display to tablet, laptop, or something that would be possible to connect e-ink display.

1 Lets pretend that I successfully do that- connect e-ink display to laptop with good processor and specifications, so the question would be- would it be possible for it to run a lot of fps (lets say at least 20) because of good processor or it would be limited at certain amount because of screen itself?.
2 Would high frame frefresh rate affect e-ink screen somehow? I've seen posts at forums people talking about it but havent found answer for this certain matter.
If someone tried something like this it would be intresting to read!

Here's a post with 3 URLs where using eInk as a monitor is displayed in a youtube video. Maybe that'll help?

Thanks for link, it was intresting, but I'm thinking of connecting e ink display directly to something (also not connecting it via usb or something as dasung paperlike monitor) that has good processor and ect. (lets say high-end laptop) so it could play more fps (I know that there are limits to e-ink screens, also question is how long would it last). The problem is that there are not many posts about this (or I'm just bad at search?)

I did not knew right word so i used 'directly' so it would not mean using e ink as secondary display.
It would be exatly the same way as replacing lcd screen of device but instead I would put e-ink screen ( and then there are problem to find device with same connections as e-ink display has). But for now its just weird idea.

You did state it correctly.
So you are planning to take off an LCD screen and replace with an e-ink.
I think it would be easier to just make it a secondary.
Now if you use a windows computer you can turn off the primary monitor.

Sorry for late response. I was thinking of replacing it but not using as secondary screen so it would be laptop/tablet(whatever it would be conncected to) powered and would use it's recourses for faster refresh speed and battery life. If refresh rate would be fast enough to play videos then it could be used always with charger plugged in (As some people does it with their laptops just without batteries).
