We present power conversion efficiency (PCE) and luminous efficiency (LE) performance levels of high photometric quality white LEDs integrated with quantum dots (QDs) achieving an averaged color rendering index of >= 90 (with R9 at least 70), a luminous efficacy of optical radiation of >= 380 lm/W-opt a correlated color temperature of <= 4000 K, and a chromaticity difference dC <0.0054. We computationally find that the device LE levels of 100, 150, and 200 lm/W-elect can be achieved with QD quantum efficiency of 43%, 61%, and 80% in film, respectively, using state-of-the-art blue LED chips (81.3% PCE). Furthermore, our computational analyses suggest that QD-LEDs can be both photometrically and electrically more efficient than phosphor based LEDs when state-of-the-art QDs are used.
