We're suckers for large-format, high resolution displays here at HotHardware, and Acer is now making available a new entry that is sure to be a delight for your eyes. Acer today announced that its Predator CG437K P is now available for purchase in the United States. The Predator CG437K P is a large format gaming display (LFGD) that measures 43 inches across and features a 4K (3840z2160) resolution. If that wasn't enough, Acer has managed to throw in DisplayHDR 1000 certification and a VA panel with a native refresh rate of 120Hz. However, that refresh rate can be boosted to a loftier 144Hz with overclocking enabled.  Acer also boats that the Predator CG437K P sports a 1ms response time,... Read more...
Back in early September, LG promised us all that its 2019 lineup of OLED TVs would be receiving a firmware update to support NVIDIA G-SYNC technology "in the weeks to follow." In actuality, LG probably should have said "in the months to follow" as we hadn't heard anything more about the firmware update until today. The company is now saying that the G-SYNC enabling firmware is coming this week to its most recent OLED TVs. LG says that the firmware will be applicable to the E9 Series (65- and 55-inch models), C9 Series (77-, 65-, and 55-inch models), and the B9 Series (65- and 55-inches). For those living in North America, consider yourself lucky -- you'll be the first to get... Read more...
LG's 2019 line of high-end OLED televisions is gaining NVIDIA G-SYNC support, which should make for some incredibly immersive gaming experiences. According to LG, its C9 and E9 TVs have been fully certified by NVIDIA to support G-SYNC, which would mark a first in the TV market. There is no dedicated hardware in the TVs, but NVIDIA's certification process ensures that G-SYNC is supported at up to 120Hz and 1440p resolutions (with 6ms input lag). If you're running 4K content, G-SYNC is locked in at 60 fps (with 13ms input lag). If that wasn't enough, the TVs all support HDR10, Dolby Vision (at 120fps) and HDMI 2.1. Audio formats supported include Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos along with AI algorithms... Read more...
LG is showing off its expanded UltraGear gaming monitor lineup at IFA 2019 in Berlin. There are three new models, including two 27-inch panels and a larger 37.5-inch model, each with an IPS screen, ultra-fast 1ms GtG (gray-to-gray) response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC support to keep the action smooth and free of unwanted tearing. The fastest of the three is the UltraGear 27GN750. It's a 27-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate, making it ideally suited for esports gaming. Of course, you'll need a burly graphics card to take advantage of an ultra-high refresh rate, but for the most part, esports titles are less demanding than other types of games. Brightness is rated at... Read more...
Earlier the month, AOC dropped jaws when it announced its latest 24.5- and 27-inch gaming monitors boasting an ultra-low response time of 0.5ms. Now, it's Acer's turn with the unveil of the Predator XN253Q X 24.5-inch gaming monitor. The Predator XN253Q X features a 1920x1080 panel with a high 240Hz refresh rate, but its headlining feature is an incredibly fast response time of just 0.4 seconds. Acer claims that this allows the monitor to achieve "amazingly accurate gameplay even in the fastest action scenes." We've yet to see either AOC's or Acer's latest sub 1ms gaming monitors in action, but we're eager to see how much of a difference this spec really makes in the real world when... Read more...
HP is hoping to offer gamers the best of both world with its Omen X Emperium 65. Although HP is careful not to call the Omen X Emperium 65 a television, per se, there's no escaping that fact that this is a massive display that would be more at home in your living room, den, or bonus room than your average computer desk. The Omen X Emperium measures a massive 65 inches diagonally, which puts it squarely in big-screen 4K HDTV territory. However, it borrows technology from the gaming world that we don't see in typical consumer-grade televisions, like NVIDIA G-SYNC and support for 144Hz refresh rates, for example. This duality of purpose leads to some interesting design choices, some of which... Read more...
Microsoft added a lot of handy new features to its latest major refresh of its Windows 10 operating system: the May 2019 Update. One thing that the company didn't highlight when originally promoting the Windows 10 May 2019 Update was the addition of a new Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) toggle switch that is located within Graphics Settings. If you need to be brought up to speed, VRR technology is currently in use by both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards to sync the FPS of the game you're currently playing to the refresh rate of your display. In practice, it's supposed to result in a smoother gameplay experience and fewer dropped frames. NVIDIA calls its technology G-SYNC, while AMD's... Read more...
AOC is about to be giving ASUS and Acer some competition into the high-end monitor space with its new Agon AG353UCG. You can probably discern from the model name that this is a 35-inch display, but the devil is in the details. Not only is it big, the Agon AG353UCG sports a fast 200Hz refresh rate, HDR support, and a built-in G-Sync module. At the high-end of the display spectrum, ASUS and Acer have the ROG Swift PG27UQ and Predator X27, respectively. AOC's new Agon display is not trading blows with those panels directly, though there are notable similarities. For one, all three have fast refresh rates and built-in G-Sync modules, and they each can reach an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness level... Read more...
As has been the tradition for the last few years, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang got on stage in Las Vegas to host the company’s annual pre-CES keynote. Though Jensen’s last few CES keynotes have featured a myriad of AI, Deep Learning, and autonomous vehicle related news, this year’s keynote focused almost solely on gaming and the advanced brought forth by the company’s Turing GPU architecture. The talk began with a brief history on rasterization on how fidelity has improved over the last decade and a half, before pivoting to RTX technology and a discussion about how AI and ray tracing will usher in more photo-realistic imagery moving forward. To that end, Jensen showed a new... Read more...
Remember those NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) 4K HDR behemoths that were first announced back at CES 2018? While NVIDIA and its partners hoped to get products out the door sometime in 2018, the initiative was officially delayed in late August,with NVIDIA saying that products would begin shipping in 2019. Well, 2019 is here and we present to you the Hewlett-Packard Omen X Emperium. Although it's showing up a year late, the first of the massive NVIDIA-backed gaming displays looks to impress. For starters, the Omen X Emperium measures 65 inches diagonally, and is of course backed by NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR technology for fluid gameplay. Oh, and did we mention that you can crank... Read more...
LG is planning to introduce a couple of interesting 'UltraGear' monitors at the Consumer Electronics Show next month. One is a 49-inch model (49WL95C) that is intended for productivity, and the other is a 38-inch model (38GL950G) that is designed primarily for gaming, with appropriate bells and whistles like G-Sync support. The 38-inch monitor sports a curved panel with a 3840x1600 (WQHD+) resolution and 144Hz refresh rate for fast-action gaming. LG also claims a low response time of just 2 milliseconds. Lighter weight esports titles are probably best suited, otherwise you'll need a meaty graphics card to take full advantage of the refresh rate at 3840x1600. Anyone who owns a GeForce graphics...

HDR -- you’ve undoubtedly seen the three letters stamped on the box of the latest 4K monitors and TVs while passing by them in the store, and while it is still relatively new HDR (High-Dynamic Range) technology is, without question, changing the way in which our senses take in next-gen entertainment. NVIDIA is at the forefront of driving this cutting-edge display technology with new G-SYNC monitors that profoundly impact three primary pillars of how visual entertainment is perceived by the human eye: color, brightness, and contrast. How that translates to today’s visually advanced games is a true-to-life spectrum of vibrant colors, dramatically more intense light... Read more...
The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ has been a long time coming, and spoiler alert, it was worth the wait. The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ is one of the first monitors to finally bring together a full complement of cutting-edge technologies and combine them into a single offering, like a delicious stew full of tasty gaming ingredients. In this case, the recipe calls for a 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in-plane switching (IPS) panel with a blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate, seasoned with High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals, and garnished with NVIDIA G-Sync support. Talk about a drool-worthy dish! ASUS first teased the PG27UQ at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas...in January 2017. Yes, we have been eagerly awaiting... Read more...
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 input lag. A next generation G-SYNC controller is incorporated, while the panel itself will have cover...
