While NVIDIA and ASUS have the gaming display market wrapped up with the ROG Swift PG278Q, AU Optronics has announced a new slew of display panels that are based on its AHVA (Advanced Hyper Viewing-Angle) panel technology. This technology is said to be similar to LG's IPS technology, but cranks the refresh rate up to 144Hz.




Samsung has its PLS technology, similar to LG's IPS tech, which goes up to 120Hz, but right now the TN-based panels own the 144Hz market. AU Optronics' new panel, the M270DAN02.3, is a 27-inch example. We have a resolution of 2560x1440, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350cd/m2 brightness, sRGB gamut and 178/178-degree viewing angles.


AU Optronics is part of the BenQ group, so we should see this new panel baked into BenQ's range of gaming monitors in the near future.
