I know what it is. This is Sony technology inherited by Nikon. The
stripe RGB arrangement is a feature of Sony's trinitron tube
developed back in the early 80s for the flatter CRT. This RGB
arrangement has been inherited by their LCD. The advantage of stripe
over triad RGB is that it let in more backlight allowing the display
to look brighter. It does not mean that what you get is high
definition just a brighter and maybe cleaner example of a typical VGA
320x240 VGA display.
Now you have your answer!

LOL. TFT display technologies have inherited but three things from CRT technology, red, green and blue. The regular pattern of pixels on a TFT display has nil to do with Trinintron technology and all to do with ease and practicality of design.
