Viotek GN24C 24-inch Curved 1080p 144 Hz Monitor Review

Over the past few months we've been checking out Viotek's gaming display offerings. We first took a look at their GN32Q 32-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz display, then their GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz display, and today we have the GN24C. This display is a 24-inch curved Full HD (1920 x 1080) VA panel with a 144 hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support. Full HD displays with a 144 Hz refresh rate are really popular right now for gamers as that is what mid-range graphics cards can push (144 FPS) with the settings on games turned all the way up. There is no point in getting a 1440p or 4K display with a high refresh rate if you system can't even run at those settings. These displays are also very popular with FPS gamers as they like the high refresh rate. This display is selling for only $219.99 on Amazon and is even listed as an "Amazon Choice" product. Let's see if this display is the perfect gaming monitor for you.

The guys over at PCPer have disassembled the brand new ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ, which is a 27-inch, 4K, 144 Hz, G-SYNC HDR monitor that costs $1999. Upon inspection they found that the G-SYNC module inside is a newer one compared to the one that is used in 1st generation G-SYNC displays (which does not support 4K / 144 Hz / HDR). This module is powered by an Altera-made FPGA with the model Arria 10 GX 480.

Viotek GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz Monitor Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Viotek's 32-inch GN32Q, which was their 1440p curved 144Hz display with a really cool rose gold design. While 32-inches is a good size, it seems most serious gamers feel a 27-inch or 24-inch display is really the sweet spot as you really don't have to move your head around at all the view the entire screen. Viotek's GN27D features a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync. Compared to the GB32Q the GN27D definitely looks more like a gaming display with its all black design and slim stand. Even better is that this display is only $369.99 on Amazon, making it one of the most affordable 27-inch 1440p 144Hz curved display out there. Is this display worth picking up? Read on as we find out!
