LG UltraGear monitors: first VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, May 25 2022 11:53 PM CDT

The new LG UltraGear 27GP950 and 27GP850 both feature a 27-inch Nano IPS-based panel, with LG announcing the two monitors "fulfilled the mandated scores across VESA's Adaptive-Sync Display CTS, including numerous fundamental measures such as refresh rate, screen flicker, and response time".

How do the new VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification logos help you? Well, the new logo will help customers work out and compare the variable rate refresh (VRR) performance of the gaming display, before they purchase it. When you're buying a premium gaming monitor, the new logo will help you absolutely know that, I guess.

LG is offering beautiful color reproduction and contrast thanks to its OLED panel technology, as well as LG's anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating.

AGLR reduces visual distractions so that users (gamers) can focus their attention on the gameplay, something that will help you in brighter environments (whether they're lights inside of your house, and room or whether it's sunlight through the window).

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, May 24 2022 12:51 AM CDT

NVIDIA didn't have a big Computex 2022 keynote, but it did cram in some cool things -- the best thing for me, the new 500Hz gaming monitor -- but also 12 new games with DLSS support.

The company announced that NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology is coming to two big games: F1 22 and Hitman 3. Hitman 3 gets its ray tracing update today, as well as DLSS which will help out with performance across the board on a GeForce RTX GPU.

Hitman 3 includes a big update that packs NVIDIA DLSS, ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced shadows, and more content for gamers to enjoy. F1 22 isn't quite here yet, launching on July 1 with both NVIDIA DLSS as well as ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced transparent reflections, ray-traced ambient occlusion, and ray-traced shadows.

ASUS and NVIDIA have been working on the absolute bleeding-edge gaming monitor technology for many years now, with the companies hitting a huge new milestone: 500Hz.

The new ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz G-SYNC gaming monitor is not just a new 1080p gaming monitor at an even-faster refresh rate (in this case: 500Hz) but rather the companies are using a new 500Hz display designed from the ground up for esports.

The new "E-TN" (Esports TN) panel is being used for "maximum motion clarity", but there's much more: NVIDIA teases that inside of the new ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz G-SYNC gaming monitor we have: "NVIDIA G-SYNC Esports Mode with adjustable esports vibrance and of course, complete NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer support, allowing users to measure end-to-end system latency when using a NVIDIA Reflex mouse and GeForce GPU".

The new LG CineBeam HU915QE projector can project a large 120-inch screen from just 7 inches away, something its predecessor could do, but now it does it with a retina-busting 3700 ANSI lums of brightness. That's bright enough that you could enjoy a huge 120-inch screen, and still have your blinds up enjoying some sunlight.

LG says that it's using its "evolved, three-channel laser technology, which employs a separate light source for each primary (RGB) color, this new model is able to offer more vivid images even during the day compared to other conventional products with the single light source technology".
