Both LG and AOC have debuted some tantalizing FreeSync monitors at this year's CES.




First up is the AOC C3583FQ (pictured above), a 21:9 ultrawide display with a curved AMVA panel and maximum refresh rate of 160Hz with overclocking and 144Hz without. Resolution isn't confirmed, but you can assume 3440x1440 or 2560x1080. For I/O, you have 2 x HDMI 1.4 ports, 2 x DisplayPort 1.2a+ ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack; for audio, you get integrated rear facing 5W speakers.


Meanwhile, the U2879VF (pictured below) sports a 28'' TN panel, 3840x2160 resolution, and 60Hz refresh rate. This one will be available by March.




LG's offerings include the UD68, a flat 27 incher featuring 3840x2160 resolution and a maximum 60Hz refresh rate, and the UC88, which comes in 29'' and 34'' flavours. Both feature curved ultrawide 21:9 panels, 3440x1440 resolution, and support for Thunderbolt 2. Refresh rate is speculated to be 60-75Hz. All of LG's displays feature IPS panels.




Once these go public, the total number of FreeSync monitors available will rise to 37.
