To the naked eye, this display doesn't look all that different from previous generations. And with a resolution of 264 ppi, it's not the first Retina display iPad.
All the same, 120 Hz is a blisteringly fast refresh rate for this many pixels, which is probably why it needs four (!) connecting cables. (Its ginormous older brother got by with just two.)
The slimmer bezel and True Tone tech also set this display apart—but we're here for the guts. After melting off a couple shields, we find:
Intersil ISL24882B TFT-LCD Vref generator/programmable gamma buffer (likely)
Parade Technologies DP825 timing controller (likely an upgraded version of Parade ICs we've spotted in previous iPad Pros)
Texas Instruments TPS565158 display power management
Texas Instruments TMP456 remote/local temperature sensor
