It is never too early for rumors of the next iPhone iteration, right? So it goes in the land of smartphones—leaks, rumors, and speculation constantly abound. As it pertains to Apple's bread and butter device, there is talk of a 2020 model iPhone getting a display upgrade with a refresh rate than can be switched from 60Hz to 120Hz. Nothing is set in stone, and the chatter is not coming from Apple directly. However, moving to a 120Hz panel would give Apple an enticing bullet point to market at enthusiasts and gamers alike. As it stands, the majority of smartphones that have a 120Hz display (and there are not a ton of them) are gaming phones, like the just-announced ASUS ROG Phone II. Outside... Read more...
After a week of teasing and a few leaks, ASUS is getting officially official with its ROG Phone II gaming phone. As ASUS confirmed last week, the ROG Phone II is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 855 Plus, which a binned version of the existing Snapdragon 855 with higher CPU and GPU clocks. The Snapdragon 855 Plus will primarily be used in gaming phones -- like the ROG Phone II -- and features CPU (single "Prime" core) and GPU clocks that have been boosted by 4 percent and 15 percent respectively. So not only will the ROG Phone II have a performance advantage over its predecessor, which featured a Snapdragon 845, but it should also outperform all previously released... Read more...
NVIDIA first launched its SHIELD TV over three years ago, and since that time, the company has continually updated the media streamer/game console to keep pace with the latest Android releases and to add new features. Keeping that trend going, NVIDIA has announced the 20th update for SHIELD TV, which is called the SHIELD Software Experience Upgrade 7.1. Loaded into the SHIELD Software Experience Upgrade 7.1 are a number of new features including in-game voice chat. This feature is incorporated into games available on GeForce NOW, and works with headsets that are connected via the 3.5mm headset jack that is built in to the wireless SHIELD controller. Fortnite is called out as one... Read more...
4K panels have pretty much taken over the big-screen television market, and 4K PC gaming was brought to the forefront thanks in part to the GeForce GTX 10 series over two years ago. But what about 8K? It will still be many years before the leap to 8K become mainstream, but that isn't stopping AU Optronics (AUO) from whetting out appetites with a gigantic 85-inch 8K television -- we're talking a 7690x4320 resolution here. Oh, and did we mention that it has a 120Hz refresh rate? We don't think that we've seen so much "win" in one place, but here we are. The television features a High Dynamic Resolution (HDR) panel that uses Quantum Dot technology and features peak brightness of 1200 nits... Read more...
Rejoice PC gamers, as reported earlier, Acer and HP have partnered with NVIDIA to produce NVIDIA Big Format Displays (BFGD). But they are not alone. This is a full initiative from team green that will initially include a trio of partners, the third of which is ASUS. NVIDIA has just taken the kimono off a potential game-changer at the start of this week’s CES 2018. In partnership with ACER, HP and ASUS, the company has announced their Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGD) -- 65-inch monsters that seem to tick every single checkbox a gamer could want with their laundry list of premium features. ASUS ROG Swift PG65 BFGD 65-Inch 4K HDR Gaming Monitor With G-Sync And NVIDIA SHIELD For gamers, BFGDs... Read more...
On many levels, 3D Vision 2 is very similar to 3D Vision. The technology works in exactly the same way. It uses the same software, and the new glasses we’ll be showing you are backwards compatible with the original emitters. Conversely, the original 3D Vision glasses are forward compatible with newer 3D Vision 2 kits. But NVIDIA has made a number of physical and technical tweaks that enhance the technology in a few key ways. NVIDIA has redesigned its active-shutter glasses and incorporated 20% larger lenses and worked with ecosystem partners to bring new, larger, full-HD 3D Vision compatible monitors to market. They’ve also developed a new technology dubbed LightBoost that ultimately... Read more...
When we first took a look at NVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology a couple of years ago, we came away impressed. We understand that gaming and watching video in 3D isn’t for everyone, but after using NVIDIA’s first 3D Vision kit with one of Samsung’s then-new 120Hz LCD displays, we truly enjoyed the experience. Not only was a new dimension (literally and figuratively) added to the games we played, but there were inherent advantages to using a 120Hz LCD, both when 2D gaming and just working on the desktop. There was no denying NVIDIA had an uphill battle convincing gamers to put on a pair of beefy, active-shutter glasses, and spring for a new monitor, but for those that took... Read more...
There is a big push for various 3D technologies in the current market. Whether you're a fan or foe, the industry is pushing forward with 3D at a torrid pace. Recently, we had a chance to test 3D Vision Surround from NVIDIA and came away impressed by the experience. It was only a matter of time before we got our hands on more hardware featuring the technology though, and Asus stepped up to the plate without missing a beat. Today, we're checking out the latest 3D capable monitor to hit the market, the Asus VG236H. The VG236H display from Asus is a 23" widescreen panel that features a 120Hz refresh rate, 1920 x 1080 resolution, and an NVIDIA 3D Vision kit... Asus VG236H 120Hz 3D Vision LCD Monitor...
