ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN: world's first 1440p 360Hz insanity LCD

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 5, 2022 2:45 AM CST

ASUS has announced a flood of new gaming monitors at CES 2022 with its new ROG Swift OLED gaming monitors in 42-inch and 48-inch sizes, but there's also a world-first 1440p 360Hz display with the introduction of the ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN gaming monitor.

The new ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN gaming monitor rocks a 27-inch 2560x1440 panel, with a blistering 360Hz at its disposal. 1440p + 360Hz is just where it starts: as ASUS made three key innovations in its LCD technology to make sure it is the very fastest gaming monitor that ASUS has ever made.

ASUS includes 3 x HDMI 2.0 ports, and 1 x DisplayPort 1.4 connector -- another high-end ASUS gaming monitor without HDMI 2.1, which just seems so strange -- especially now that we're in 2022 and this bad boy will sell this year, and well into the coming years... all without HDMI 2.1 connectivity.

ASUS ROG Swift G32UQXE: 4K 160Hz requires next-gen GPUs to run 160FPS

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 5, 2022 2:15 AM CST

ASUS has announced a new super-high-end ROG Swift PG32UQXE gaming monitor, which offers a beautiful Mini-LED panel, and native 4K resolution at a blistering 160Hz refresh rate.

Yeah, 4K 160FPS on a single DisplayPort 1.4 cable with DSC (Display Stream Compression) that ASUS has been utilizing on its highest-end ROG Swift gaming monitors for a while now. The new ROG Swift PG32UQXE gaming monitor can drive 4K 160Hz on the PC with the right GPU, while next-gen consoles can enjoy up to 4K 120Hz with the HDMI 2.1 connector.

ASUS is using a Mini-LED panel on its ultra-high-end ROG Swift PG32UQXE gaming monitor, which also includes another two HDMI 2.0 ports, a built-in USB hub (which will let you use peripherals and other devices) as well as the usual ROG Swift design and stand. There's a huge 1000 nits of peak brightness, which means you're going to get near-OLED levels of quality and in some ways, better.

LG's new G2 OLED TVs: huge 83-inch, gigantic 97-inch OLED models

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 4, 2022 7:44 AM CST

LG has just unveiled its new G2 series OLED TV family, with sizes ranging between 55 inches and a gigantic 97-inch version that would feel like having an IMAX OLED TV in your living room... and I want it.

LG's biggest and most bad-ass new G2 OLED is the huge 97-inch G2 OLED TV, which isn't the world's biggest -- but it is damn big -- I mean 97 inches of 4K 120Hz OLED goodness, I want it. LG is using an upgraded chassis for its new G2 series OLED with a consistent thickness across the panel -- the bottom third is thinner, ready for being attached to your wall.

Last year, the South Korean giant unveiled its OLED "Evo" family of displays but now the Evo panel will be baked into the G2 and mainstream C2 OLED TVs from LG. LG says that its new G2 OLED will have higher peak brightness over the C2, which will be done through a blend of brightness booster algorithms, and improved heat dissipation from the components inside of the TV.

Samsung asks for 'Age of Togetherness' with new Frame, Neo QLED TVs

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 3, 2022 6:31 AM CST

Samsung has unveiled its latest and greatest The Frame TV, which is an even sleeker, and even more expensive TV that looks like a piece of art in your room... if you can afford it.

Samsung asks for 'Age of Togetherness' with new Frame, Neo QLED TVs 07

The company lets you show off your own videos and photos, as well as show off customized metal and wooden frames so that it truly does look like a painting on your wall. The latest version of Samsung's The Frame TV has a new anti-reflective screen that will look more realistic than previous Frame TVs.

Samsung says that the new matte finish on The Frame 2022 TVs makes the screen have a "lifelike paper and canvas texture" that has been "engineered to maximise light scattering surface irregularities" even if they're in a bright room. I think you'd need to see the anti-reflective screen on the new Frame TV to really understand what Samsung has in its expensive boutique TVs.

Samsung's new TV remote recharges battery from your Wi-Fi radio waves

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 3, 2022 12:12 AM CST

Samsung has just unveiled its new 2022 series TVs and they come with new Eco Remotes that are capable of drawing power from not just the sun... but from radio waves.

Samsung's new TV remote recharges battery from your Wi-Fi radio waves 02

Yeah, the new Samsung Eco Remotes will actually draw power from the radio waves near your house -- including your Wi-Fi router -- and other devices. Samsung says that the RF harvesting would let your TV emote control be fully charged whether you're watching TV all day and night and click the remote 5 trillion times I guess... because I replace the batteries in my remote, like, every YEAR.

The South Korean giant is making the new Eco Remote with a "recycled material design" -- so don't worry, the environment is being looked after -- while power is being harvested through your body, to your remote. The new remote will have a minimalistic design, pack a built-in microphone for voice control, and the usual shortcuts for apps and services like Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and Samsung TV Plus.

Samsung has unveiled the "world's first 4K 144Hz TV" using their in-house Mini-LED display technology, with the additional of Shape Adaptive Light Control that reportedly reduces stray illumination by analyzing on-screen objects and shaping the light to match them. Samsung is also using Object Depth Enhancer, which uses more processing to work out which objects are from the background.

The big deal here is the ability to offer 4K 144Hz right out of the box for PC gamers, and up to 4K 120Hz for the next-gen Microsoft Xbox Series X/S and Sony PlayStation 5 consoles. Samsung is the first with a 4K 144Hz gaming TV, all done through HDMI 2.1 connectivity to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs -- as well as all GPUs coming this year, and in the future -- all ready for 4K 120/144Hz.

Only in Japan: lickable 'Taste your TV' invented, you can lick your TV

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2022 1:20 PM CST

After 11 years of writing for TweakTown, it feels like there are waves of "WTF" news that fly across my screen... and today my friends, is another day of crazy news.

Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita has created a prototype lickable TV screen that can imitate food flavors, so that you could lick your TV and literally taste it -- which is why the device is called Taste the TV -- or TTTV. Taste the TV has a carousel of 10 flavor canisters that are sprayed in a specific combination to create the taste of particular food.

From there, the flavor is rolled on hygienic film over a flat TV screen for viewers to... well... lick. In the current world we live in through the pandemic, I don't see how licking your TV can be a good thing... but I guess the excuse of being able to taste food from the confines of your walls, and never venture out into the world again... is leading us into the world of licking our screens.

LG Display taps exotic deuterium: makes OLED TVs up to 30% brighter

Anthony Garreffa | Dec 29, 2021 11:56 PM CST

We're just days away from CES 2022, but it seems LG Display is too excited to stop itself from talking about its next-gen display technologies ahead of the big tradeshow next week.

LG Display taps exotic deuterium: makes OLED TVs up to 30% brighter 06

LG Display has just announced a new OLED display that it calls OLED EX, and the South Korean giant then taps deuterium during the manufacturing process -- something that the company says makes the OLED EX up to 30% brighter than current large-sized OLED TVs.

LG Display will be producing the new OLED EX panels at two of its OLED plants, which will kick off in Q2 2022 -- meanwhile, what the hell is deuterium? Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen and packs twice the mass of a regular hydrogen atom and LG Display is using deuterium compounds that allow the new OLED EX panels to have up to 30% more brightness, as the deuterium compounds are improving the efficiency of LG's in-house organic light-emitting diodes.
