The new Vizio 4K TVs are perfect for the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, and even better for PC gamers as it supports 4K 120Hz. While next-gen consoles will offer 120FPS, you can't do that right now on the PC because there's no card with HDMI 2.1 that supports it.

We also have support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG. The P-Series Quantum X panels are the flagship LED TVs that Vizio has, with up to 800 nits of full-screen brightness and 792 local dimming zones. The HDMI 2.1 ports support things like VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), eARC, and 4K at the full 120Hz.

Philips announce new 27-inch 4K monitor for gaming, but it's only 60Hz

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Jun 25 2020 10:27 PM CDT

Philips unveiled two monitors recently; one of them seems pretty kick ass -- a new 55-inch 4K 120Hz beast in the 558M1RY, but then there's the 278M1R.

The new Philips 278M1R is a 27-inch monitor that the company is aiming at gamers and esports, which is the first monitor from the company that is squarely made for competitive gaming. Except, it sucks. Like, bad. 4K 60FPS? Get out of here, Philips -- no competitive gamer is going to use that.

So, the Philips 278M1R is a 27-inch monitor with a native 3840 x 2160 resolution (4K) at a stock standard and oh-so-90s 60Hz refresh rate. However, Philips has focused on getting the input lag on its 278M1R as low as possible -- but none of that matters if you're gaming at 60FPS.

The new Philips 558M1RY monitor sees the company teaming with Bowers & Wilkins, baking in a 40W speaker direcftly into the monitor. Not just that, but Philips also delivers with the looks of the 558M1RY by providing Ambiglow that blasts colored light in different directions onto the back wall where you will place the Philips 558M1RY monitor.

Inside, we have a 55-inch panel with a native 3840 x 2160 resolution, DisplayHDR 1000 certification (that means it'll be nice and bright), a fast 2.5ms response time (faster 1.5ms over DisplayPort) and that silky smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

Earlier this year at CES 2020, NVIDIA and ASUS teamed to create the world's first monitor with a huge 360Hz refresh rate. But now, it's Acer's turn for a new 360Hz gaming monitor.

Acer unveiled its new Predator X25 gaming monitor during its Next@Acer 2020 event, with the Predator X25 dropping into the game as a 25-inch 1920 x 1080p panel with a ridiculously high 360Hz refresh rate. Yeah, 360FPS.

Acer's new Predator X25 gaming monitor is G-SYNC compatible, with Acer saying that the X25 uses LightSense, to "adjusts its brightness and color temperature automatically based on environmental light". There's also Adaptive Light technology, which will change the ambient lighting based on what you are playing. This is another nice touch on the Predator X25.

Google Assistant smart displays will soon read AMP-based web pages

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Jun 18 2020 12:26 AM CDT

Anyone that owns a Google Assistant-based smart display will know they can't access regular websites, but that will be a thing of the past soon.

Google Assistant smart displays will soon read AMP-based web pages 01 | TweakTown.com

Google will be unlocking this ability for its Google Assistant family of smart displays, saying that "later this summer" we'll be able to use regular web pages that are AMP (Accelerated Mobile Page) compatible. AMP is an entirely Google project, where websites like TweakTown, have AMP pages for mobile users.

So once Google pushes out the update to Google Assistant, compatible smart displays will be able to view AMP versions of websites from the tap of a finger. Google has said that the smart display web page ability will be part of its upcoming News feature, but the search giant has been quiet on more details about this new News feature.

Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor: 5120 x 1440 @ 240Hz will cost $1700

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Jun 15 2020 11:00 PM CDT

Samsung announced its new Odyssey G7 and Odyssey G9 gaming monitors at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year -- but now, they're available for pre-order.

Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor: 5120 x 1440 @ 240Hz will cost $1700 05 | TweakTown.com

There are three different models to choose from, with the larger-than-life 49-inch Odyssey G9 coming in with a native 5120 x 1440 resolution and 1000 nits of brightness. Samsung's other two are in the Odyssey G7 family, with a 27-inch and 32-inch gaming monitor each with a native 2560 x 1440 resolution and 600 nits of brightness.

Samsung uses a flagship QLED panel on the larger 49-inch Odyssey G9, while the lesser (and thus, cheaper) Odyssey G7 gaming monitors use a cheaper VA panel. But, all three models have a ridiculous 240Hz refersh rate -- so if you're buying the Odyssey G9, you might want to wait for that next-gen NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 or RDNA 2-based Radeon from AMD.
