Elon Musk has asked one of the most important questions in the world: what is the resolution of real life?
In a new tweet, the world's richest man -- and SpaceX + Tesla CEO -- Elon Musk, has asked "what resolution is life in, 8K?" As someone who personally owns an 8K monitor and runs 7680 x 4320 all the time, I would say it's superior to 8K. The resolution of real-life would have to be in excess of 16K or even 32K at beyond 120FPS.
We wouldn't even measure "FPS" as time can feel fast, or slow depending on what you're doing -- so 120FPS would be a hard indicator. I'd love to know what Elon thinks... if real-life is being rendered in 8K resolution -- on this simulation of the "real-world" at least -- then surely, it's being pumped to us at beyond 120FPS.
AGON by AOC has just unveiled their latest flagship gaming monitor, with the new AGON PRO AG274QS gaming monitor: with a huge 300Hz refresh rate.
The new AGON PRO AG274QS gaming monitor has a native 2560 x 1440 resolution, with a huge 300Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time. AOC is using a Fast IPS panel here, so it's not a VA panel -- joined with DisplayHDR 600 and a 1ms GtG response time.
AOC is also including Adaptive-Sync technology and AMD FreeSync Premium support, so even the twitchiest gamers will have no problems on this panel. There's some great connectivity here as well, with 4 x USB 3.2 ports, so you can hook as much of your peripherals into the AOC AGON PRO AG274QS gaming monitor.
Philips has just unveiled a new gaming monitor you'll probably never buy... but the new Philips Momentum 27M1F5800 gaming monitor is here.
The new Philips Momentum 27M1F5800 gaming monitor rocks a 27-inch Nano IPS panel, a native 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, and a super-smooth 144Hz refresh rate. This is all possible over HDMI 2.1 directly into your NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 or AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card.
Cesar Acosta, Gaming Product Manager for Europe at MMD Monitors & Displays explains: "Our new Philips gaming monitors from the Momentum line are jam-packed with features specifically designed to offer gamers everything they need to get the most out of even the most dynamic and visually rich video games on the market".
LG launched multiple new UltraGear gaming monitors at Computex 2022 this week, but the two smaller 27-inch gaming monitors are the very first with VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification.
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 has unveiled a trio of kick-ass new UltraGear gaming monitors, with the introduction of the first-ever OLED gaming monitor in its UltraGear family, a new 32-inch 4K up to 160Hz monitor, and a new 32-inch 1440p up to an insane 260Hz monitor.
The new UltraGear 32GQ850 gaming monitor has a 31.5-inch Nano IPS panel, with a native 2560 x 1440 (1440p) resolution and 240Hz refresh rate (up to 260Hz with OC). LG is using its ATX Polarizer technology on both of its new 32-inch UltraGear monitors, which the company says "guarantees seamless visuals and consistent colors from almost any vantage point".
LG knocks down to VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification on its UltraGear 32GQ850 -- down from the DisplayHDR 1000 certification on the UltraGear 32GQ950. LG has 1ms GTG on both of its new UltraGear 32GQ850 + 32GQ950 gaming monitors, and are NVIDIA G-SYNC + AMD FreeSync Premium Pro compatible.
LG UltraGear just unveiled its first-ever OLED gaming monitor, but there was also the introduction of the UltraGear 32GQ950.
The new LG UltraGear 32GQ950 gaming monitor has a 31.5-inch Nano IPS panel, with a native 3840 x 2160 (4K) resolution and 144Hz refresh rate: overclockable to 160Hz. LG says that the "new UltraGear lineup delivers beautiful, vivid picture quality and lightning-quick response time - the two 32-inchers courtesy of LG's advanced Nano IPS 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) display technology".
LG's new UltraGear 32GQ950 is also the company's first 4K monitor to use ATW Polarizer technology, which the company says improves the panel's ability to ensure lively, accurate colors and deep, dark blacks across a wide viewing angle. We've also got VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, with a high peak brightness of up to 1000 nits.
LG UltraGear has just announced its first OLED gaming monitor, introducing the new LG UltraGear 48Q900.
The new LG UltraGear 48GQ900 gaming monitor has a huge 48-inch OLED panel, with a native 3840 x 2160 (4K) resolution and 120Hz refresh rate -- which is overclockable by the way, up to 138Hz -- with an 0.1ms response time. 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).
MSI has just introduced the world's second 34-inch QD-OLED gaming monitor, with the introduction of the new MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor.
The new MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor has 34-inch QD-OLED panel, with a native 3440 x 1440 resolution and super-smooth 175Hz refresh rate. MSI is using an 1800R curvature, with some MEG features baked-in: Sound Tune AI noise canceling, a KVM switch, smart crosshair, and an ambient light sensor.
Alienware recently debuted its AW3423DW (with near identical specs: 34-inch 3440 x 1440 resolution + 175Hz refresh rate with a QD-OLED panel) priced at $1400. MSI hasn't priced its new MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor just yet, but we do know it has a 0.1ms GtG response time, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and around 1000 nits of brightness for HDR content and gaming.
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".
