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...

Back in January 2017, AOC announced the AG352UCG gaming monitorwhich featured a 35-inch panel with a 100Hz refresh rate. Now, just over a year later, AOC is back with a refreshed version of the monitor called the AG352UCG6. The new AG352UCG6 retains the 35-inch panel size of its predecessor, but now includes an 1800R curvature instead of 2000R. In addition, the refresh rate has been boosted from 100Hz to a loftier 120Hz for even smoother visuals while gaming. Like before, the resolution of the display is listed at WQHD (3440x1440). Other features include 300 cd/m2brightness rating, 4ms response time (grey-to-grey), 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC. You'll... Read more...
Let's rewind the game tape back to CES 2017; it's at this time that we were floored by the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ display which measured 27 inches across and featured a 144Hz 4K HDR G-SYNC panel. A few months later, Acer countered with its Predator X27, offering largely the same specs. And after that... crickets. ASUS and Acer never released their draw-dropping displays, with both products seemingly being left in limbo. Now fast forward to today; two separate reports are claiming that the wait will soon be over for these fearsome displays. Both G-SYNC displays, which use an NVIDIA reference design, are now scheduled to arrive on the market in April -- they were originally supposed to ship in Summer... 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...
Acer has been unveiling some cool gear at CES 2018, and the latest is a massive monitor designed specifically for gamers. It's a massive display that measures 65-inches and has NVIDIA G-Sync technology integrated in conjunction with NVIDIA's new Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) initiative. The display also has NVIDIA SHIELD hardware built-in for streaming movies and TV shows in 4K HDR resolution. The 4K resolution monitor has ultra-low latency and a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth playback no matter how fast the action on screen. Acer integrates a full array backlight with 1,000 nits peak luminance and local dimming for higher contrast, deeper blacks, and brighter whites. The monitor includes a... Read more...
We’ve come to expect over-the-top gaming goodness when it comes to ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) family, and the company doesn’t disappoint with the announcement of the new ROG Chimera gaming notebook. The fact that this massive machine features a 17.3-inch display is nothing new, but it is the world’s first notebook panel to sport a refresh rate of 144Hz. ASUS was one of the first out of the gate with a 120Hz panel on a gaming notebook, so it should come as no surprise that the company is once again looking to push the segment forward. The 17.3-inch panel has a display resolution of 1920x1080 (sorry, 4K lovers), a response time of 7ms, and is backed by NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. Moving past... Read more...
