ASUS has just unveiled its new ROG Strix XG17AHP portable gaming monitor, a new variant of the previous ROG Strix XG17AHPE which was launched in January 2020.
What's new here with the ROG Strix XG17AHP is that ASUS has included a nifty tripod stand, where you fold the feet that hold the stand (and your monitor) up and then attach the monitor onto it with a telescopic-like extension in height.
It actually looks like it would be a great addition to the portable monitor experience, so you can truly have a portable monitor. As for the ROG Strix XG17AHP itself, we have 17.3-inch 1080p 240Hz monitor here with VESA AdaptiveSync and a non-glare surface. Inside, ASUS includes a 7800mAh battery that should be good for around 3 hours of use -- with a USB-C connector to charge it up.
Samsung's new QLED TVs are about to get an injection of super-awesome PC-enabled tech, and it's all thanks to the new HDMI 2.1 standard.
The company has just pushed pretty hard into its new "Next Evolution of Gaming Display" in its latest QLED TVs, with HDMI 2.1-powered connections enabling a huge 4K 120Hz for PC gaming and next-gen consoles with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Samsung touts that input lag is a super-low 9.8ms and that it has the industry's first FreeSync Premium-applied TV, as well as "Auto Game Mode" which automatically optimizes your TV settings for the optimal gaming experience, lowest input lag, and of course: super-fast 120FPS frame rates.
LG unveiled its new 38WN95C-W monitor earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020, but now it is releasing it in particular markets. Check it out:
The new LG 38WN95C-W is a curved UltraWide gaming monitor with a native resolution of 3840 x 1600, and a refresh rate of up to 144Hz. If you disable Variable Refresh Rate (or VRR) then you can crank the refresh from 144Hz up to an even smoother 170Hz.
LG is using a slick Nano IPS display on its new 38WN95C-W, with a 1ms response time so gamers will find a super-snappy home for their all-night gaming sessions. There's 95% coverage of the P3 color space, 98% of the DCI-P3 color space, VESA DisplayHDR 600, and more.
LG had one of the best gaming TVs on show earlier this year at CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas -- with their new 2020 lineup of 4K TVs including a bunch of OLED panels.
The latest in LG's continued OLED domination is the 48CX, which is a 48-inch 4K OLED TV with a gaming-focused 120Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC support. It will cost $1499, and will go on sale in the US this month -- in June 2020.
LG's new 48CX model is the first time LG has sold an OLED panel that is smaller than 55 inches, and it comes packed with all the goodies you'd expect of a high-end OLED TV and gaming monitor. LG even says that with the 48-inch panel and 4K resolution, it has the same pixel density of a massive 96-inch 8K display. Wowzers.
Around the world, many motorsports have been postponed, and races have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In Australia, the Supercars races have been moved to virtual events for the foreseeable future. LG is a sponsor of a driver for this year's BP Supercars All Stars Eseries virtual racing event. The season is a 10-week online simulation with Supercar drivers competing in races from their homes.
LG says that asking an athlete, like a sports car driver, to relearn their sport online isn't an easy task. Learning to drive in a virtual event is particularly hard for supercar drivers with no experience with racing sims. Rick Kelly, team principal, co-owner, and driver for Kelly Racing, felt the challenge of adapting to racing off of the track in the virtual world.
LG Electronics Australia is an official partner for Kelly Racing Supercars team for the 2020 season and helped Rick to create an enhanced simulation experience at home. LG provided Kelly Racing with home entertainment technology that included a trio of 55-inch C9 LG OLED televisions that were specially calibrated for racing simulation. Using those screens, Kelly was able to build a simulator that allowed him to create a familiar driving experience similar to being inside of a real supercar.
Samsung has just launched its new Odyssey G7 gaming monitor, something the company unveiled at CES 2020 earlier this year -- with some rather impressive specs.
The new Odyssey G7 gaming monitor is available in two sizes: 27-inch and 32-inch variants, both with native 2560 x 1440 (1440p) resolutions and super-fast 240Hz refresh rates. Samsung is using a curved QLED panel with a 1000R curvature on the new Odyssey G7 gaming monitor, too.
Hyesung Ha, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said: "Samsung is maintaining its position as the global gaming monitor market leader with continued innovation in creating immersive, next-generation gaming experiences, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Samsung Odyssey G7 curved monitor is the ultimate combination of curvature, comfort and competitive edge, giving gamers the advanced performance they need and demand".
Gamers wanting a new computer monitor that offers a wider view or office users wanting a screen that can show more content side-by-side will want to check out the LG 34CB99-W. This is a wide aspect ratio curved computer monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The native resolution of the screen is 3440 x 1440, and it supports 99% of the sRGB color gamut.
Currently, the display is on sale at Newegg with a discount of $300 for about the next 16 hours as of writing. That $300 discount brings the regular $999.99 price tag down to $699.99. AMD FreeSync is supported, and the monitor has an HDMI input, DisplayPort, USB Type-C, and a stand that is height adjustable and tilts.
LG integrates Screen Split 2.0 technology allowing users to resize and display multiple windows at once with 14 options, including four picture-in-picture modes. The display is Energy Star qualified. Other specifications include 10-bit color depth and typical brightness of 300 cd/m2. The contrast ratio is 1000:1 typical, and the display has 178° viewing angles horizontal and vertical.
Alienware has just unveiled its new AW2521H, a new 24-inch gaming monitor with a ridiculously fast 360Hz refresh rate.
The new Alienware AW2521H rolls out with a 25-inch IPS-based panel, with a native 1920 x 1080 resolution and super-fast 360Hz refresh rate. You might be disappointed with the 1080p resolution but that's all you're going to get when you're at the lofty heights of 360 freaking hertz.
Alienware is also giving gamers G-SYNC support with the new AW2521H gaming monitor, with a dedicated NVIDIA G-SYNC module inside of the monitor. The 'F' model of this (AW2521HF) is the FreeSync enabled monitor, but if you didn't already know -- 360Hz gaming monitors are co-developed with NVIDIA.
HP has debuted a new gaming monitor that is called the Omen 27i Gaming Monitor. It uses a Nano IPS panel that gives a color gamut of DCI-P3 98%. The high color gamut means that the display will provide deeper hues and more accurate colors with a 25% wider color gamut than sRGB. HP says that "largely nullifies color degradation from shallower angles."
The native resolution for the display is quad HD, meaning 2560x1440, and it has 350 nits brightness. Other features include NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility that eliminates issues with display stutter, input lag, and screen tears. HP also bakes in support for AMD FreeSync technology for AMD graphics cards. The refresh rate is 165 Hz, and the screen has 1 ms response time with overdrive. Viewing angles are 178-degrees horizontal and vertical
The screen measures 27-inches diagonally with dual pillar height. The stand is adjustable, and it has four easy access tilted ports. On the rear of the display is an immersive diamond panel lighting solution that is controlled via the OMEN Command Center. That solution helps reduce eye fatigue by matching an adjustable ambient light to the color of what's on the computer screen.
We know that the next-gen consoles will handle 60FPS with ease, as well as finally delivering console gamers native resolutions like 4K (but with fluid 60FPS frame rates) -- but what about 21:9 aspect ratio UltraWide support?
It seems they will have these features, as Philips have just unveiled their new 345M1CR Momentum, a new 34-inch UltraWide gaming monitor made not for PCs... but for consoles. The new monitor supports up to 3440 x 1440 at 144Hz, with a 4ms response (1ms with Philips' motion blur reduction mode).
Philips is asking gamers to buy their new monitor, so that they can "take your console gaming experience to a new level".
