Title: Liquid crystal display having a dual bank data structure and a driving method thereof

Abstract: Disclosed is a liquid crystal display having a dual bank data driver structure and a driving method thereof. The liquid crystal display includes an LCD panel including a plurality of gate lines, a plurality of adjacent data line groups having an even number of data lines disposed on the LCD panel intersecting the gate lines, and a plurality of pixels arranged in a matrix and each having a switching element connected to the gate lines and the data lines; a gate driver successively applying gate ON voltage to the gate lines to turn on the switching elements; and first and second data drivers provided on opposing sides of the LCD panel and to which the data line groups are alternately connected, the first and second data drivers applying grey voltage corresponding to color signals to the data lines via output terminals. The method of driving the LCD includes the steps of applying gate ON voltage successively to the gate lines, and applying grey voltage to the data lines in units of lines through the first and second data drivers.
