Acer's new 35-inch 21:9 monitor supports 'overclocking' to 200Hz

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Sep 6, 2015 11:12 am

Acer didn't let ASUS have all the new monitor fun at IFA 2015 this year, with Acer unveiling a slew of new screens that we reported on a few days ago. But here we're going to go into a bit more detail on the Predator Z35.




The new Predator Z35 is the first of Acer's new Predator Z Series of curved gaming monitors that is powered by NVIDIA's G-Sync technology. The Predator Z35 is a huge 35-inch 21:9 UltraWide monitor with a resolution of 2560x1080, so while it's disappointing that we don't have 3440x1440 here, it makes up for that with its refresh rate.


Acer has somehow provided 'overclocking' support of its new 21:9 monitor, where gamers can crank the refresh rate on the Predator Z35 all the way up to 200Hz. It sounds insane, and this is something we simply can't wait to try out for ourselves. The Acer Predator Z35 will cost $1199, and be available in the United States in December.

ASUS teases 34-inch 21:9 monitor with 100Hz refresh rate and G-Sync

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Sep 6, 2015 5:42 am

Something we spotted at Computex earlier this year, but was confirmed at IFA 2015 over the last few days is the new ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q. The new PG348Q is a 34-inch, 21:9 UltraWide monitor with a huge 100Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA's G-Sync technology.




Nearly all UltraWide monitors are 60Hz right now, which isn't too great for enthusiast PC gamers like myself who want a 3440x1440 monitor with 144Hz. But 100Hz, that's something we can deal with for now. The new ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q features a "frameless curved design", with tilt, swivel, and height adjustment capabilities.


ASUS hasn't shared pricing or availability on the new 34-inch UltraWide monitor, but we should expect it later this year.

LG shows off double-sided 111-inch 4K OLED TV

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Sep 6, 2015 4:06 am

LG has unveiled quite the unique offering at IFA 2015, with a massive 111-inch double-sided, 4K OLED-based TV. The 111-inch TV is made capable using three 65-inch 4K OLED displays, allowing viewers to watch both sides of the TV simultaneously.




The company also displayed a new 55-inch version of its double-sided TV, which is just 5.3mm thick. But who would use a double-sided TV? Consumers wouldn't, but for businesses and signage, it could be something worth looking into. One of the pioneers of OLED technology, Dr. Ching W. Tang said during LG's keynote presentation at IFA: "Without backlight and other auxiliary layers, the OLED display is fundamentally less complicated compared to LCD, and in time less costly to manufacture".


The South Korean electronics giant also teased a super-thin 55-inch OLED display that is under 1mm thick. This is more of a wallpaper OLED TV, given its incredible thinness. Tang added: "I have no doubt, given its advanced features and superior performance - foldable, wearable, flexible and transparent, OLED is the display technology for the next generation".

ASUS tease new QHD gaming monitor with 165Hz refresh and NVIDIA G-Sync

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Sep 6, 2015 2:13 am

When ASUS released the ROG Swift PG278Q last year, it was the gaming monitor that dreams were made of. An awesome-looking 27-inch QHD monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution, it was backed up by a huge 144Hz refresh rate, with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology sprinkled on top.




Well, now we're looking at its successor, something ASUS teased at IFA 2015. The new ROG Swift PG279Q features the same 2560x1440 resolution on the same 27-inch display, but cranks the refresh rate up to an insane 165Hz. This is the industry's first 165Hz-capable monitor, making it the undeniable champion of gaming monitors when it's released later this year.


Inside, we have the QHD resolution of 2560x1440, backed up by 1000:1 contrast ratio, 170/160-degree horizontal/vertical viewing angles, 350cd/m2 brightness, and 8-bit colors. We should expect DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 inputs, too. The new ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q will feature an IPS-based panel compared to the TN panel found in its predecessor, the ROG Swift PG278Q. An IPS panel is something that the Acer XB270HU had over the ROG Swift PG278Q, but now ASUS has beaten Acer at the monitor gaming with not just an IPS-based gaming monitor, but a huge 165Hz refresh rate.

The second, less exciting model is the SE2716H and is Dell's first curved display.

LG is finally ready to sell its non-curved 4K OLED TVs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Aug 27, 2015 6:35 am

After showing off its 4K OLED TVs back in January, LG is now ready to sell the non-curved 4K OLED TVs to the public. LG has two 4K OLED TVs ready, with a 55-inch and 65-inch on offer.




The two new TVs have HDR capabilities with improved color range, so you're not going to be disappointed with the picture. Both of the ultra-thin 4K OLED TVs feature next to no bezel, are powered by the webOS 2.0 smart TV platform, and rock Harman/Kardon speakers. LG is silent on pricing for now, but the new sets will be available throughout Europe and the United States by the end of the month.

Sharp shows off an 80-inch 8K TV, with a resolution of 7680x4320

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Aug 23, 2015 1:29 am

Now that 4K is much more established than it was a few years ago, 8K is now appearing about the place with Sharp displaying the first retail 8K TV on a massive 80-inch 8K TV.




Sharp's new LCD-80XU35A is a massive 80-inch 8K TV, with a native resolution of 7680x4320 - a huge jump on 3840x2160, the native resolution of Ultra HD, and 4096x2160 of '4K'. Even though 4K is generally referred to as 3840x2160, that's actually 'Ultra HD'. Anyway, Sharp's new TV is different to the usual 4K TVs on the market, where the 80XU35A features a "new generation of four-color technology" as well as an "X8-MEP professional image processing engine".




The new four-color technology that has been deployed on the 8K TV has a fourth color, yellow, which joins the usual RBG (red, green, blue) color spectrum. This allows the 8K-capable TV to reach a wider color gamut and more clarity than a 4K TV - on top of the huge pixel increase. These technologies, on top of the native 7680x4320 resolution, will have a massive increase in picture quality for both video content, and gaming.

The world's first 4K mobile display with an insane 734 PPI unveiled

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Aug 7, 2015 2:06 am

EverDisplay has just shown off an incredible new mobile display, a 6-inch 4K display that has a massive pixel density of 734PPI. But what would you need this many pixels on a 6-inch display for?




Well, the company claims that VR applications and 3D imaging would be perfect for this new display. The manufacturer has been working with other technology too, such as round displays for wearables and the automotive industry. But it's not all sunshine and rainbows for a 6-inch 4K mobile display with 734PPI, as there's battery life to worry about, and heat output.


Still, we can see that 4K displays with insane pixel density are right around the corner, just as we prepare for the onslaught of virtual reality headsets from the likes of Oculus and HTC.
