Can the STM32F769 drive/control a "dumb" TFT LCD?

I'm trying to interface an STM32F769 with a 4.3" 480 x 272 TFT LCD via a parallel 16 bit RGB interface. Some of these TFTs have built in controllers/drivers, like an OTA5180A, HX8227, or a SSD1289, while other "dumb" TFTs have no built in controller/driver. I'm trying to figure out if I can use a display without any built in controller/driver. I've read the AN4861 app note, but I'm still a bit confused... I think I may be getting driver and controller mixed up. The LTDC peripheral is just a controller, and a TFT with a built in driver is still necessary?

 

Will the built in LTDC peripheral of the STM32F769 be enough to interface with a TFT LCD that has no built in driver/controller? 

 

Thanks for your help.
