We’ve been hearing about 4K G-SYNC HDR monitors with 144Hz panels ever since CES 2017. At the time, both ASUS and Acer announced monitors that adhered to NVIDIA’s announced specs. 2017 came to a close and CES 2018 came and went with no sign of these mythical G-SYNC HDR monitors. However, NVIDIA is now saying that the time has come to unleash the beast, so to speak. The first 27-inch 144Hz monitors supporting G-SYNC HDR will launch in by the end of this month, or early June at the latest. All of these monitors will of course feature a 4K resolution (3840x2160) with virtually zero... Read more...
A few days ago, AMD started pushing out a new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.4.1 driver release that, according to the release notes, introduced support for the April 2018 Update for Windows 10. Other than a handful of bug fixes, there didn't appear to be anything else special about the latest driver package—no game optimizations and no additional features, or so we thought. While not listed in the release notes, AMD's latest GPU drivers enable streaming 4K Ultra HD video from Netflix on your PC. The added functionality was first spotted by Hardware.info, which noticed that latest driver... Read more...
Philips is cranking out a truly high-end display in the form of the Momentum 43-inch gaming monitor. Besides its rather mammoth (for a gaming display) screen size, the Momentum is notable for its support for the DisplayHDR 1000 standard. Up until now, the VESA standards organization has recognized DisplayHDR 400 and DisplayHDR 600 certified displays, which have brightness ratings of 400 nits and 600 nits respectively. However, given the DisplayHDR 1000 rating, the new Philips Momentum boasts a brightness rating of 1,000 nits. The display supports 4K resolutions (3840x2160) and 10-bit color input.  In...

Blackmagic rolled out a slick-looking new cinema camera this week at the National Association of Broadcasters Show. It's a camera that uses a compact handheld still camera design and records video in 4K. The big deal here is that the cinema camera has a very affordable price tag that should put it right in reach of the movie shooters and videophiles out there looking for 4K support. The retail price for the camera body is $1,295 and it uses lenses with the Active MFT mount. The body can control iris, focus, and zoom on supported lenses and the dynamic range has 13 stops and the effective sensor... Read more...
DOOM has been a popular game for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch platforms since it first launched back in 2016. However, id Software is delivering an update to owners of the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro that will unlock the full processing potential of the consoles. The patch will be available starting tomorrow and will enable 4K resolution support for both consoles, which will finally put the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro on even footing with what's possible on the PC platform. Bethesda says that the increase in image fidelity means that you will likely want to revisit the game... Read more...
Graphics professionals and anyone looking for a larger size HDR monitor may want to take not of something new that ASUS cooked up. As we head into the weekend, ASUS launched its ProArt PA32UC, a 32-inch monitor with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel and enough brightness to drive a true high dynamic range (HDR) experience, which is not something to take for granted when shopping an HDR monitor. Here's the thing about HDR. Whether it's a television or a computer monitor, ideally you want a display that is capable of cranking up the brightness to 1,000 nits (cd/m2). Many HDR displays fall woefully... Read more...
Canon has unveiled its latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera called the EOS M50. Canon is very clear in calling this camera an entry-level unit, and the camera maker wants smartphone users to think of this as their step up from primary shooter. The EOS M50 will most certainly offer better image quality than any smartphone camera out there. M50 has the distinction of being the first EOS M-series camera able to record 24fps video at 4K resolution. Canon also fits the M50 with a Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which is a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor that captures images with less noise and higher definition... Read more...
This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas officially comes to a close today, though by this time, most of the exhibits have been torn down. That's okay, because we were in attendance earlier this week, gathering up information and snapping photos on some of the more interesting stuff on display. One of the vendors we visited was ASUS, and the company did not disappoint. From next-generation wireless routers to a Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD), ASUS brought the goods. Let's have a look. We will start things off with the company's BFGD. It is a 65-inch gaming display based on NVIDIA's... Read more...
It's not as hard as it once was to procure content that takes full advantage of the latest crop of beautiful 4K televisions (and monitors), but to some, 4K is just half of the equation. The other half, of course, is HDR (high-dynamic range). With HDR, colors gamut coverage is delivered over a much wider area (hence, "range"), and accurate. In effect, colors will pop and, to borrow an old cliche', make the picture "more lifelike" than ever before. Netflix has offered HDR on some platforms for a while now, but has just now rolled it out on the PC. If you've been on the hunt for 4K Netflix... Read more...
LG has announced that it will be bringing new computer displays to CES 2018, and they are both quite impressive. The first is the LG 32UK950, which is a 32-inch UHD 4K monitor with support for HDR600 and LG's Nano IPS technology integrated. That Nano IPS technology uses nanometer-sized particles within the screen's LEDs to absorb excess light wavelengths. That application enhances intensity and purity of colors according to LG allowing for a more life-like viewing experience. The monitor is able to show 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which LG says is comparable to the monitors used when mastering... Read more...
Dell has a long history of producing high-quality displays, and the recently released Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K monitor (model UP2718Q) we will be showing you here -- the company’s first to support HDR10 -- is no exception. Though this display demands a premium price, it is also chock full of sought after features that target graphic designers and content creation professionals. The 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) IPS panel used in the UP2718Q features UHD Alliance Premium certification and support for 100% of the Adobe color gamut. It can display approximately 1.07...

Today is Cyber Monday, the online equivalent of last week's Black Friday. For all the folks who couldn't be bothered with getting out in the crowds, it’s time to start crackin' online. Walmart has announced that its Cyber Monday sale kicked off at midnight and is going right now. There are some good deals to be had on electronics and gaming devices with this sale. Perhaps the most interesting is that Walmart has the PS4 Pro on sale for $349. This is the same price other retailers were offering on Black Friday so if you missed out in store, you can possibly land the deal online now. Walmart... Read more...
There are more resolution options for the upcoming Xbox One X gaming console than many expected. We all knew that the Xbox One X, hailed as the most powerful game console ever, would work with 1080p TVs, 4K TVs and monitors, but many gamers don’t want either of those resolutions. What some gamers want is support for 1440p, which is WHQ or 2560x1440 resolution. While we haven't heard much on support for this resolution, the game console will support that resolution and do so natively. Some feared when they connect their 1440p monitors, they would be met with screen images that were simply 1080p... Read more...
It's not a shark with frickin' laser beams on its head, but Dr. Evil would most certainly put the slick new Hisense 100-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Laser TV on the wall inside his evil lair. This isn't really a TV in the traditional sense, it's more like a projector and screen with a full speaker system right in the box. "It's time to rethink TV," said Dr. Lin, Vice President of Hisense Group. "In addition to an unapologetically amazing viewing experience, the Hisense Laser TV can be easily incorporated into any home environment as it does not require a special darkened environment or cumbersome equipment....
