If you're buying into the benefits of a curved display, you'll be thrilled to know that Samsung has introduced what it claims is the most advanced curved monitor the world has ever seen. It's also known by its model designation -- SE790C. However you want to refer to it, Samsung's newest curved display features a 34-inch display with an ultra-wide quad high-definition (Ultra-WQHD) resolution (3440x1440) with a 21:9 aspect ratio. "All curves are not created equal. Samsung’s SE790C offers an industry-leading and award-winning curvature for a truly immersive, comfortable and differentiating viewing... Read more...
It’s hard to say that a nearly $1,000 display is affordable, but Acer’s newly-launched 32-inch B326HK is one of the less-expensive monitors in the 4K market. With a resolution of 3840x2160 (four times the available pixels of a 1920x1080 display) and IPS technology for wide-angle viewing, the display is bound to get the attention of everyone from artists to gamers.The B326HK isn’t a flashy display, but it’s designed to be easy to adjust, whether you want to raise, lower, or tilt it. The monitor also comes with a full complement of ports, including HDMI with MHL (for mobile devices), DisplayPort,... Read more...
So, have you been shopping a 4K monitor for yourself and haven't liked what you've seen so far? We don't blame you -- though there are a select few models worthy of early adoption, for the most part, the 4K monitor movement still has some growing pains to overcome. One of the more promising entries we've seen in some time is Dell's new 27-inch P2715Q. The P2715Q rocks an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel rather than an inferior TN display. It also boasts support for a 60Hz refresh rate when running at 3840x2160, which is not something that can be said about the company's 28-inch P2815Q (it's limited... Read more...
Dell has made a handful of interesting announcements at its Dell World 2014 conference, currently taking place in Austin, Texas. Yesterday, we were able to show you some of the new Venue mainstream and professional tablets and convertible devices the company has coming down the pipeline, and today we’ve got some impression of a couple of other products—Dell’s highly anticipated 5K display and a concept “Smart Desk” product that could change the way creative professionals interact with their PC. First up, here’s a look at Dell’s upcoming UltraSharp 27 5K... Read more...
LG didn't just come out with another run-of-the-mill 4K monitor. Instead, the South Korean electronics maker dropped the gauntlet by introducing its 31-inch 31MU97 with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel and Digital Cinema 4K resolution, which trumps all those Ultra HD monitors out there by more than half-a-million pixels. The 31MU97 boasts a 4096x2160 resolution across a 31-inch display, compared to most Ultra HD monitors running at 3840x2160. And of course it blows away Full HD 1080p panels that run at 1920x1080 or 1920x1200. Combined with an IPS panel that supports over 99.5 percent of the Adobe... Read more...
Last year, when I was first exposed to NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, I turned to one of our contacts at the company and said, “The moment someone comes out with a nice 4K version, I’ll hand over my credit card”. At the time, I had been riding along on a 30” HP display with a resolution of 2560x1600, and quite frankly, was itching to upgrade. After all, smartphones and tablets were already available with high-resolution screens that put the pixel densities of typical PC displays to shame. And after years of upgrading every other part of my personal workstation (multiple... Read more...
In the interest of full disclosure, I’m going to start this piece off with a bit of a confession: Last year, when I was first exposed to NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, I turned to one of our contacts at the company and said, “The moment someone comes out with a nice 4K version, I’ll hand over my credit card”. At the time, I had been riding along on a 30” HP display with a resolution of 2560x1600 for a few years, and quite frankly, was itching to upgrade. After all, smartphones and tablets were already available with high-resolution screens that put the... Read more...
We think NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology holds a lot of promise for gamers, though availability is a bit scarce at the moment, with just a few panels supporting the feature. Go ahead and add AOC's G24060PG 24-inch gaming monitor to the mix. AOC's newest display implements G-SYNC technology, which works with supported GeForce GPUs to synchronize the display refresh rate. Why does it matter? Taking advantage of G-SYNC technology essentially eliminates screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag. And what all that translates into is a smoother gaming experience with less ghosting and other... Read more...
Two of the hottest technologies in the display category right now are 4K Ultra HD and NVIDIA G-SYNC. What happens when you combine the two? You end up with Acer's XB270H, a 28-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) display with a 60Hz refresh rate, blazing fast 1ms response time, and G-SYNC to keep things honest. The XB280HK is one of two new XBO Series of gaming displays by Acer, the other being a 27-inch Full HD 1080p monitor (XB270H) with a 144Hz refresh rate. Like its bigger brother, it too sports a 1ms response time and is infused with NVIDIA G-SYNC. "We’re excited to bring these first-rate gaming... Read more...
Many companies haven't even introduced 4K displays with their own logo on them yet, and we're already looking ahead to what's next. That's typical for the tech space, but 5K displays seem closer than most would have guessed. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has just announced the DisplayPort 1.3 audio/video standard, which is a meaningful update to the DisplayPort 1.2a standard. The new protocol increases the maximum link bandwidth to 32.4 Gbps, with each of four lanes running at a link rate of 8.1 Gbps/lane—a 50% increase from the previous version of the DisplayPort standard....

Look, that 4K monitor you just spent a king's ransom on isn't obsolete, but it's no longer cutting edge. How can that be? You can thank Dell for deciding that 8,294,400 pixels (3840x2160) just isn't enough, so it's going to release a 5K panel with a 5120x2880 resolution. That works out to 14,745,600 pixels, nearly twice as many as today's 4K monitors. The UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor is the world's first display with an Ultra HD 5K resolution. It's equivalent to four times the resolution of QHD and seven times the resolution of Full HD. Now imagine packing all those pixels on a 27-inch panel... Read more...
We've seen display makers focus on lower cost 4K Ultra HD monitors in recent months, and while we applaud the effort, what about the graphics professional who is willing to spend more on a panel with better color accuracy? It looks like Samsung is ready to answer the call. In addition to a handful of mobile devices unveiled today, Samsung announced the availability of its new UD970, a 32-inch class 4K monitor for the professional crowd. By that we mean it's intended for users who require not only a high resolution, but also accurate color reproduction for video and photo editing, graphic design,... Read more...
It's not easy to make a splash in tech news when you're going up against a major processor microarchitecture release like Haswell-E, though Dell managed to do just that by unveiling its uniquely redesigned Alienware Area 51 desktop yesterday. Interestingly, that wasn't the only thing Dell had up its sleeve. Mentioned almost as a side note in the press release is the unveiling of what Dell claims is the industry's first 34-inch curved monitor. Dell's new UltraSharp 34-inch (U3415W) display boasts an ultra-wide 21:9 with a curved panel and WQHD 3440x1440 resolution. That's plenty of real-estate for... Read more...
Before we dive in and show you the brand-new ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q G-Sync enabled monitor, we have a confession to make: We are ecstatic that there is finally some innovation happening in the monitor market. For years, 30” panels with native resolutions of 2560x1600 and paltry 60Hz refresh rates remained the pinnacle of desktop displays, while the rest of the market filled up with cheap, less-than-stellar 1080p panels. As much as we all loved our 30” panels around here, it got a little boring staring at the same screen for years on end, especially when all of the hardware around it... Read more...
