Lenovo on Tuesday announced a new generation of ThinkVision T Series monitors that feature the latest green certificates and a more refined design than what you might be used.

While on the topic of physical design, the refreshed monitors sport an equal bezel width on all sides, as Lenovo wanted to ensure a seamless flow for those who choose to configure a multi-monitor setup...

Back in September at a press event held in Montreal, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced what he called “one of the most important works NVIDIA has done for computer graphics.” The technology was called G-SYNC. G-SYNC is an end-to-end graphics and display architecture that starts with a Kepler-based GPU and ends with a G-SYNC module within a monitor. The G-SYNC module is piece of hardware that replaces the scaler inside a display/gaming monitor that essentially does away with the fixed vertical refresh rates of current displays.

Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha you gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when the U.S. Department of Justice slaps you silly for conspiring to fix prices of LCD panels on a global scale? So maybe the actual theme song goes a little differently than that, but we have an answer to the question nonetheless. When the DoJ lobs a legal backhand your way for bending the public over and kicking them in the wallet, you're going to serve time in jail. That's the self-imposed plight Wen-Hung "Amigo" Huang, a former executive from Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corporation, finds himself in after pleading guilty to conspiracy... Read more...

Digital designers and video editors will tell you that one display is often not enough. With so many different tool and palette windows, a single display can get crowded very quickly, leaving little room for the primary workspace. Add some other apps to the equation, such as e-mail and Web browsers, and you can wind up with a desktop drowning in windows. But another full-sized display is not always a practical solution for such users: A second display might represent a prohibitive expense or it simply might not fit on a desk that has limited space. Perhaps even more importantly, many systems... Read more...

In an effort to help clarify some marketing terms that have been thrown around in terms of LCD Panels, X-Bit labs takes a look at 7 different LCD monitors, discussing(in detail) response time compensation. This isn't a light read folks, so grab some coffee, and emerge yourself in 20 pages of LCD technology."The ISO 13406-2 method to measure the monitor's response time as the total time necessary to change the state of a pixel from pure black to pure white and back again brings but very little information about the real performance of the monitor and easily misleads the user.
