Feature: But the XG32VQR is a great 1440p gaming monitor regardless

Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR review: HDR is still a pain in the ass

As 2560x1440 gaming monitors go, the 32in Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR is probably one of the better screens you can buy today. I'd even go as far as saying it's potential best gaming monitor material if ever suddenly became a lot cheaper than our current 1440p recommendation, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ, but even at its current price of £489 / $550, the XG32VQR is is…

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card.

Feature: The HDR debacle continues

BenQ EX3203R review: The HDR monitor that looks better without it

If the BenQ EX3203R name sounds familiar, that's because there's just one number separating it from its almost identical sibling, the EX3200R. Both screens share the same design and have a curved 31.5in VA panel to their name, and both come with high 144Hz refresh rates and support AMD's adaptive frame rate FreeSync tech. What sets the EX3203R apart, however, is its sharper 2560x1440 resolution…

AOC Agon AG322QC4 review: An excellent FreeSync 2 HDR monitor, brightness be damned

HDR on PC (or high dynamic range) is all well and good when it actually works, but let's face it, no one wants to shell out north of £2000 / $2000 on one of Nvidia's fancy G-Sync HDR monitors like the Acer Predator X27 or Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ when it's still so damn fiddly to get right. Admittedly, things aren't any simpler over on…

Feature: Our HDR guide has it all

What is HDR and how can I get it on PC?

If you've thought about buying a new TV in the last couple of years, you'll no doubt have been bombarded with the glorious three-letter acronym that is HDR. Standing for 'High Dynamic Range', HDR is a type of display technology that's all about making the things you see onscreen more realistic and closer to how they'd look in everyday life. That means improved contrast, a…

BenQ’s EX3203R monitor joins AMD’s FreeSync 2 HDR ranks

After much weeping and gnashing of teeth and disappointing first looks, proper, honest to goodness HDR finally looks like it's about to become a reality on PC. We've already seen how AMD's FreeSync 2 tech made the Samsung CHG90 one of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s I've ever tested, and it's shortly going to be joined by the rather stunning Nvidia G-Sync HDR-enabled Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ over the coming…

Prepare to be blinded by Philips’ 1000nit 4K FreeSync 2 monitor

Who knew late April was the time for oodles of monitor announcements, eh? Well, if yesterday's news of the FreeSync 2-equipped AOC AGON AG322QC4 didn't make your eyes pop out of their sockets, then the jumbo Philips 436M6VBPAB almost certainly will thanks to its blinding max brightness of 1000cd/m2. This giant 43in VA panel is the first of a new line of Momentum monitors from Philips, and is the first…

AOC unveil first FreeSync 2 monitor, the AGON AG322QC4

The vast majority of PC gamers may own Nvidia graphics cards, but when it comes to the world of gaming monitors and adaptive frame rate technologies, AMD rule the roost. The reasons for this are unknown. Perhaps it's because AMD's FreeSync tech (see our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] guide for more info on the Free vs G debate) doesn't require monitor companies to pay an…

Feature: Ultimate HDR in ultimate widescreen

Samsung CHG90 review: We’re gonna need a bigger desk

The Samsung CHG90, or the LC49HG90DMNXZA to give it its full and proper title, is by far the most ludicrous monitor I've ever seen. Measuring a whopping 49in across its fancy curved diagonal, this ultra-super-stupidly-wide 32:9, 3840x1080, 144Hz, HDR (let me catch my breath for a second) FreeSync 2 VA display is proper bonkers. And I sort of kind of love it.
