Samsung is offering up a specs tour de force with its new Odyssey G9, which is a massive 49-inch QLED gaming monitor with a radical 1000R curvature (we typically see panels with shallower curves of around 1800R). The Odyssey G9 will be on display next week at CES 2020 in Las Vegs, and those that will be able to see it in person at the show will be in for a treat. The Odyssey G9 has a resolution of 5120x1440 (32:9 aspect ratio) and a peak brightness rating of 1,000 nits (HDR 1000 certified). The VA panel has support for both AMD FreeSync 2 and NVIDIA G-SYNC, while delivering 240Hz refresh rates for gamers. You'll also find the Odyssey G9 is rated for a lightning fast 1ms response time. As if its... Read more...
ASUS is delivering some widescreen gaming goodness in the form of the new ROG Strix XG49VQ monitor. What makes this monitor so interesting is that it is a Double Full HD monitor that measures 49 inches diagonally with a 1800R curvature. Double Full HD means that the display has a resolution of 3840x1080 with an aspect ratio of 32:9. That's not quite as dense as Dell's impressive new U4919DW, which has a resolution of 5120x1440 while also maintaining an 1800R curve. However, the Strix XG49VQ trumps the 60Hz refresh rate on that business-oriented Dell display with a decidedly more gamer-friendly 144Hz refresh rate. In addition, the Strix XG49VQ supports AMD FreeSync 2 adaptive refresh rate... Read more...
Ask a group of gamers or hardcore PC enthusiasts what they want in a monitor and you’ll likely get a few common answers. High resolutions and refresh rates, adequate size, wide viewing angles, thin bezels, and a fully adjustable stand will likely be on the list, along with support for adaptive refresh rate technology and perhaps HDR (High Dynamic Range). The monitor we will be showing you here today, the 32" Samsung CHG70 Gaming Monitor with Quantum Dot Technology checks many of those boxes, and ups the ante even further with a curved screen, back bias lighting (sort of), and USB pass-through, among a few other things. The Samsung CHG70 is also one of a select few gaming displays currently... Read more...
Over on BenQ's website is a new product page for its EX3203R, a 32-inch class (31.5 inches) monitor utilizing a curved VA panel with a 2560x1440 (WQHD) resolution and blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate. The new display is also one of not many models (relatively speaking) to feature support for AMD's FreeSync 2 technology, which expands on the first-generation FreeSync protocol. To bear the FreeSync 2 badge, a monitor must have support for Low Framerate Compensation (LFC). It also introduces improved support for high dynamic range (HDR) gaming. "Gamers have spoken and they've made FreeSync™ the overwhelming choice and definitive industry standard for smooth, stutter-free gaming," AMD's Scott... Read more...
AMD and the Radeon Technologies Group have seen great success with their FreeSync adaptive refresh rate technology. Since its introduction, over 120 FreeSync compatible displays have been brought to market that target a wide array of form factors and price points. With CES and the impending launch of its next-generation GPU architecture codenamed Vega, AMD is now ready to unleash FreeSync 2 on the world, with a goal to ultimately improve pixel quality and address some issues with first-gen products.One of the growing pains associated with FreeSync and its wide-array of compatible displays, is that the experience isn’t always ideal or similar across products. The displays support different maximum... Read more...
