Monitor makers have been slow to adopt DisplayPort 2.1/2.1a connectivity, which is a bummer if you're in urgent need of a display and want to future-proof your setup (as much as possible, anyway—true future-proofing is an impossible task). Well, that's about to change. Gigabyte has introduced a trio of new displays... Read more...
It took a minute (hundreds of thousands of minutes, actually, or six months) but ASUS ROG's Swift OLED PG32UCDM gaming monitor is finally finding its way to retail starting today. That also means we have confirmation on the price—at $1,299 (MSRP), the PG32UCDM is geared more towards spendthrifts than gamers who like... Read more...
There's a war breaking out in the display landscape and it's going largely unnoticed. The main combatants at the moment are ASUS and MSI, though if the gentleman's skirmish keeps up, other display makers could be drawn into the fray. That would be a good thing, too, because the battle that's taking place is over... Read more...
Monitor makers are starting to catch on that when it comes to OLED displays, there's still concern among buyers about burn-in. And rightfully so, especially as it applies to gamers—persistent heads up displays (HUDs) can, in some instances, become permanently seared onto an OLED display (though there are numerous...

ASUS is giving gamers who are interested in buying an OLED gaming monitor a bit of added peace of mind that burn-in won't rear its ugly head, and if it does, that they will be covered. Somewhat tucked away in the specifications for its OLED displays, ASUS now explicitly states that burn-in is covered as part of its... Read more...
We're now 2/3rds of the way through January (and over 5% through 2024 already), so the holidays are well and truly over, and everyone's back to work. That doesn't mean that there are no more tech deals to be had, though! Indeed, if you're a tech industry worker or just someone who has to deal with endless Zoom... Read more...
One of the main reasons why I'm so big on mini LED displays versus OLED is because they're generally brighter, which can help make HDR content pop and overcome a less-than-idea environment, such as a living space where a lot of sunlight spills into the room. That will continue to be the case for the foreseeable... Read more...
There's still one more day until this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) officially kicks off but the announcements are already pouring in.

In case you missed it, gaming monitors were the big buzz at least year's CES event, with several models boasting delightfully bright mini LED backlighting. Since then, OLED monitors have gained a modicum of steam. Which type of display will ultimately win out? That's to be determined and as we wait to find out, Acer... Read more...
Dell's "Ultrasharp" is not a brand that needs introduction. Dell has been doing its display thing for a very long time now, and Ultrasharp has been associated with high-quality displays for many years. While not every Ultrasharp display has featured top-of-the-line technology, these upcoming models certainly fit the... Read more...

It's that time of year again where manufactures get a jump start on the madness that is the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Officially, CES doesn't begin until next Tuesday, January 9th.

One of the trends shaping up for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month is the introduction of dual-mode gaming monitors that let you choose between a higher resolution at a lower refresh rate, or a lower resolution at a faster refresh rate. LG already tipped its hand by teasing its upcoming UltraGear... Read more...
LG is teasing a handful of OLED gaming monitors that it plans to show off at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month.

BenQ is joining an exclusive club with the release of its Zowie XL2586X gaming monitor. Built around a 'Fast-TN' panel with DyAc 2 technology, it's one of only two displays (that we're aware of) to jump over the 500Hz refresh rate mark and land at a blistering 540Hz. The only other one is the ASUS ROG Swift Pro... Read more...

We'd be shocked if the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month is not dominated by AI-infused announcements. As we wait to see what exactly is in store, Gigabyte has jumped the gun with its Aorus CO49DQ, a super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a curved QD-OLED panel and a special AI algorithm to mitigate the risk of...

Porsche Design has again teamed up with AOC (the display maker, not the politician) on a gaming display that's "as large as a windshield" and "where sports car aesthetics meet gaming innovation." The size of the display is only a slight exaggeration—it adds to a modest but growing pile of 49-inch ultrawide gaming... Read more...

Don't worry if you don't have the space or desire for such a dominating display, though, because we've rounded up a bunch of Black Friday... Read more...
LG is expanding its growing gaming monitor portfolio with a couple of large additions, including the UltraGear GR75DC and UltraGear GR65DC. Other than the model numbers and a $100 price difference, the distinguishing trait between these two curved behemoths is USB-C connectivity—the GR75DC boasts a USB-C port while... Read more...

If you're a frequent visitor of our site, then you may have caught our all-out PC build guide for playing Alan Wake 2 at max settings. One thing we didn't touch on, however, is the display—we kept the focus on the game's bone-crunching hardware requirements, particularly at the high end. It's an expensive build for... Read more...
