Porsche teams with AOC on a gaming monitor... just cos

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jul 6, 2017 4:50 am

Porsche is a company you wouldn't associate with gaming displays, but the company has just announced it has teamed with AOC on a couple of new displays that are powered by a single cable. Instead of both a display cable (either HDMI or DisplayPort) and power cable, these new displays only require a single cable.

AOC teamed with Studio F.A. Porsche on two single-cable displays, with the 24-inch PDS241 and the 27-inch PDS271. The design on the displays is sleek as well, as it's just 5.2mm deep - thicker at the bottom to hold all of the electronics, obviously. AOC and Porsche includes a connected breakout box that features the HDMI port and power connector, with the display arriving in a silver theme.

The new single-cable monitors sell for $199.99 and $249.99 for the 24-inch and 27-inch monitors, respectively, with both of them hitting Amazon on July 24.

LG's new 'world's first' 77-inch flexible 4K OLED teased

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jun 23, 2017 6:59 am

LG has shown off the world's first 77-inch flexible OLED display that is not only transparent, but has a native 4K resolution.

The impressive display is super-thin, with 40% transparency and flexible, so it can be rolled into a tube that is just 6 inches across. Considering the 77-inch display is close to 6.5-foot tall (diagonally), this is impressive. For marketing and display purposes, a tall 4K-capable flexible OLED is great - imagine walking past it in retail, it would catch your eyes no matter what.

For marketing on the go, people can roll it up and take them away with them easily. Shows like CES and Computex would be a boon for flexible, rollable displays - with E3, PAX, and other trades shows making perfect sense for these huge flexible displays.

Samsung's new 49-inch 32:9 UltraWide rocks FreeSync 2

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jun 10, 2017 4:21 am

Samsung has officially launched its bigger than life 49-inch gaming display, rocking a beautiful 32:9 aspect ratio making the 21:9 aspect ratio on traditional UltraWides not so ultra, and not so wide.

The new 32:9 aspect ratio rocks an alright-for-now native 3840x1080 resolution (the same vertical pixels as a 1080p display, but the horizontal resolution of 4K). The Samsung C49HG60 rocks a curved 1800R panel, HDR support, Samsung's Quantum Dot tech, and AMD's fresh FreeSync 2 technology with a huge 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response.

 

Samsung's new 49-inch 32:9 display is available for pre-order on Amazon for $1500, and will be available on June 30. If it's too big, or too expensive for you - Samsung has two other FreeSync 2-powered gaming monitors. There's the 27-inch (C27HG70) for $600 and available today, and the 31.5-inch (C32HG70) which sells for $700 and will be available on June 26. Both variants also feature the 144Hz refresh rate, but 2560x1440 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio.

AMD's first FreeSync 2 display: 1440p, 144Hz, 1ms

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jun 6, 2017 3:28 am

AMD unveiled their next-gen FreeSync 2 technology during their Tech Summit 2016 event in Sonoma, CA last year - and now we're finally seeing the fruits of that Journey to Pixel Perfection labor with the first FreeSync 2 display out in the wild.

 

 

The world's first FreeSync 2 display in the wild is the new Samsung CHG70, a 27-inch curved Quantum Dot-based panel with 125% sRGB coverage, 2560x1440 native resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. It is an infusion of the best monitor tech you can get: FreeSync 2, 1440p @ 144Hz, accurate colors, and a low response time.

 

I need to get my hands-on one before Radeon RX Vega launches in August.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: May 30, 2017 10:33 am

Computex 2017 - If there's one thing wrong with the gaming monitor market right now, at least IMO, it's that gaming displays are too small at 27 inches.

ASUS changes things up with the introduction ROG Strix XG32VQ, their new 31.5-inch gaming display.

Acer Predator X27 gaming monitor: 4K, 144Hz, HDR, G-Sync

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Apr 28, 2017 6:24 am

We're not far away from a world where 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors are a thing, with the high-end gaming displays teased at CES 2017 earlier this year, Acer held its own press event in New York City to display its latest and greatest - including their upcoming Predator X27 gaming display.

 

 

Acer's upcoming Predator X27 display is a 27-inch 4K gaming monitor with the sublime 144Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA's G-Sync tech sprinkled on top, but introduces HDR tech as well. There are 384 individually controlled LED zones that will provide a wide color contrast, so expect this to be one of the best gaming displays ever released.

 

Victor Chien, the President of Acer's Digital Display Business said: "Acer is excited to be expanding our premium gaming monitor line-up with two new quantum dot models to make gameplay more lifelike than ever before. The Predator X27's 4K resolution at 144 Hz and Acer HDR Ultra technology create dazzling visuals that must be seen to be believed".

Inside of Acer's new Predator X27 is NVIDIA's ULMB tech, or Ultra Low Motion Blur, which sees the Predator X27 being one of the most lighting fast displays yet. We have up to 1000 nits of brightness, and 99% of the Adobe RGB color space, with a 4ms response time. Acer has also included Tobii eye tracking technology, and while most gamers won't use it - at least it's there if you ever want it.
