GIGABYTE has just unveiled its latest GIGABYTE S55U gaming monitor, which is another member of GIGABYTE's growing family of 4K gaming monitors.
The new GIGABYTE S55U gaming monitor features a huge 54.6-inch Quantum Dot-based 4K panel, with a very gaming-smooth 120Hz refresh rate thanks to its HDMI 2.1 connectivity. GIGABYTE's new S55U gaming monitor also has Android OS, which means you get access to built-in apps like Netflix and YouTube, as well as the ability of streaming content through Chromecast to the GIGABYTE S55U gaming monitor.
I don't know why GIGABYTE calls this a "gaming monitor" when you need HDMI 2.1 to use its 4K 120Hz goodness, something you can only get on AMD's new RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, or NVIDIA's new Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. There's no DisplayPort 1.4 here, folks.
Samsung is reportedly making OLED panels for Apple's second-generation iPad series that is launching in late 2024. Not only that, but Samsung is reportedly making OLED panels for Apple's new iPad Pro slates in 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions, alongside LG.
It was close to a year ago that I was reporting that Apple was expected to use OLED panels in its next-gen 2023 iPads, and it seems that is indeed coming true. LG and now Samsung will produce OLED panels for Apple's new iPad Pro series, but Samsung is gearing up for a much rosier relationship with its main, and pretty much only smartphone competitor: 2024 and beyond.
Apple's next-gen iPad models after the Pro series will be using OLED panels mass produced by Samsung according to the latest news, with Samsung reportedly entering an agreement with Japan Ulvac. The companies have reportedly started price negotiation for the Gen 8.5 OLED deposition equipment, so that it can make the OLED panels for Apple and its future-gen iPads.
ViewSonic has just announced their new VX2720-4K-PRO gaming monitor, rocking a 27-inch IPS panel that has a native 4K resolution and super-smooth 144Hz refresh rate.
The new ViewSonic VX2720-4K-PRO gaming monitor offers its 4K 144Hz over not one, but two HDMI 2.1 ports on the monitor. HDR duties aren't so great, with ViewSonic offering VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, with 130% sRGB and 90% NTC color space coverage, with 8-bit color depth.
ViewSonic says that its new 4K 144Hz gaming monitor has a 1ms "fast response time" as well as AMD FreeSync technology, and if the dual HDMI 2.1 connections aren't your thing, there's still a regular DisplayPort 1.4 connector. ViewSonic also provides a super-fast 90W fast-charging USB Type-C port, if you wanted to charge up your smartphone, tablet, or iPad through the VX2720-4K-PRO gaming monitor.
ASUS and NVIDIA unveiled their new E-TN (Esports TN) panel which is the world's fastest gaming monitor, offering an incredible 500Hz refresh rate.
But now AUO reportedly has a new 540Hz "high-brush" panel under development, with MyDrivers reporting that the "specific specifications of this ultra-high brush panel have not yet been announced, and it is likely to be overclocked on a 500Hz panel, which is a product that continues to be optimized".
The site reports that "some people have tested 500Hz high-speed brushing monitors before, using Core i9-12900K , 32GB DDR5 The game PC including the memory and RTX 3090 graphics card has been verified. Even if the minimum picture quality is turned on, the frame rate under FHD resolution is only 343 frames".
Samsung teased, and then announced its Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor earlier this year... but now the new gaming monitor has officially launched worldwide. Check it out:
The new Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor has a 32-inch curved VA panel, with a native 4K resolution and super-intense 240Hz refresh rate. Yep, 4K 240Hz insanity that is also driven by Quantum Mini-LED technology, with Quantum HDR 2000 and 2000-nit peak brightness. There's an ultra-low 1ms response time as well.
Samsung says that its new 32-inch Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor is the "world's first and fastest gaming monitor" that rocks a 1000R curved VA panel featuring Quantum Matrix Technology. The buzzwords, they get me everytime. Whsh: QUANTUM MATRIX TECHNOLOGY. Marketing jokes aside: this is a serious god damn monitor, with 4K @ 240Hz you're going to need a next-gen GPU to run games at 4K 240FPS. Maybe even a generation ahead of that.
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.
