The new G-Sync HDR gaming displays were designed from the ground up for the ultimate in gaming displays, with NVIDIA teasing: "stunning image quality, tear-free and stutter-free G-SYNC smoothness, minimal motion blur, and near-zero input latency, compared to the 22-41ms of latency added by recommended HDR TVs".

 

Not just that, but the new G-Sync HDR monitors will use Quantum Dot technology, and a full array 384-zone backlight that uses "384 individually-controllable LED backlight zones, light will only be shown when and where it is required, enabling G-SYNC HDR displays to simultaneously produce bright bold colors and deep blacks, reminiscent of the very best plasma displays. Monitors with fewer backlight zones, edge-lit backlight zones, or with only a single global backlight are incapable of matching the contrast and image quality of the new 4K G-SYNC HDR monitors, and with 384 controllable zones we have unparalleled control over the picture, producing the best images you've ever seen on an LCD gaming display".

 

NVIDIA is also including HDR10 support, which is the HDR format that is being used for PC gaming.
