- Computex 2018
Samsung Electronics has expanded its ground-breaking curved display line-up upon the global launch of the new CJ79 (Model name: C34J791) monitor. The CJ79 34-inch curved monitor is the first of its kind to feature Intel's Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Samsung Electronics unveiled its new CJG5 curved gaming monitor at Gamescom 2018, held from August 21 to 25. Samsung is exhibiting its advanced gaming monitor line-up equipped with super ultra-wide CHG90 experience zone under the theme, "Wider View. Winning Play."
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.
At Computex 2018 MSI was showing off a lot, but one thing that really caught our attention was their massive gaming display. The Optix MAG491C is a 49-inch VA panel with a 3840 × 1080 resolution, 32:9 aspect ratio, 1800R curve, and 144Hz refresh rate.
ASUS today has just introduced their Republic of Gamers (ROG) Swift PG27UQ gaming monitor. This 27-inch monitor features a Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, 144 Hz refresh rate, and NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR.
Another 4K, 144 Hz, HDR display has showed up for pre-order. This time it is the Acer Predator X27 bmiiphzx, which has been listed on Newegg for $1999.99. This display boasts specifications of a 4K (3840 x 2160) AHVA IPS panel with 178°/178° horizontal/vertical viewing angles, a response time of 4 ms, and a refresh rate up to 144 Hz through overclocking (120 Hz normal).
The world's first 4K, 120 Hz gaming monitor is here and it is not from a big-name company like ASUS, LG, or Samsung. It comes to us from a little know Korea-based company called Wasabi Mango. They have started selling their 43-inch UHD430 display, which has pretty much all the features you would want in a monitor of its class.
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!
We've been waiting for new gaming displays that offer 4K resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and possibly NVIDIA G-Sync technology. Well it looks like we are getting closer to a real release of one of these displays, the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ.
