AOC’s 24G2U is another best budget gaming monitor champion

AOC's C24G1 is an excellent gaming monitor for those on a budget, but for those of you who prefer flat screens as opposed to curved ones, then the AOC 24G2U is definitely the monitor for you. This 24in, 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync screen shares many of the same specs as the C24G1, but comes with a flat, even more accurate IPS panel instead of a…

Every G-Sync Compatible monitor confirmed so far and how to enable G-Sync on a FreeSync monitor

Nvidia's list of G-Sync Compatible monitors grows larger with every passing month, and there are now even a handful of 2019 LG TVs that now support their variable refresh rate technology. What's more, with [block id="605515" title="Black Friday"] getting closer and closer, there couldn't be a better time to pick up a gaming monitor on the cheap that can make use of Nvidia's super smooth…

Feature: Eyes wide wide open

Samsung’s titanic CRG9 is an absolute unit, but there’s still, somehow, room in my heart for it

The Samsung CRG9 is easily the most preposterous gaming monitor I've ever laid eyes on. It's not the sheer size of it that boggles the mind. Oh no. A diagonal of 49in and an aspect ratio of 32:9 is nothing after last year's equally large and equally wide CHG90 monitor. It's the resolution of the damn thing, which stands at a mad 5120x1440. That's the…

Feature: 144Hz and AMD FreeSync for under £200 / $200

AOC’s C24G1 is the new successor to the best budget gaming monitor throne

For years, the AOC G2460PF has been sitting atop our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] list unchallenged and undefeated. With its sub-£200 / $200 price, 144Hz refresh rate and superb TN panel, it's by far one of the best screens around for those on a budget. The only problem is that it's getting on a bit now, and is becoming increasingly difficult to track down.…

Acer Nitro XV273K review: 4K, 144Hz and it’s G-Sync Compatible

Nvidia's G-Sync Ultimate monitors may be some of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s I've ever laid eyes on, but good gravy do they cost an arm and a leg, with both Acer's Predator X27 and Asus' ROG Swift PG27UQ still going for around two grand a pop. The Acer Nitro XV273K might just be the next best thing, though. It's not a G-Sync Ultimate…

G-Sync vs FreeSync vs G-Sync Compatible: What you need to know

Take a look at any of our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] recommendations and you'll find almost all of them have support for either AMD FreeSync or Nvidia's G-Sync variable refresh rate technology. But what exactly is G-Sync and FreeSync and why are they so important for gaming? Well, I'm here to answer all your burning G-Sync FreeSync questions. Below you'll find out what each…

Feature: The competition for best budget 4K monitor just got a little bit hotter

AOC G2868PQU review: 4K gaming on a budget

If you've been thinking about upgrading to a 4K gaming monitor recently, then the good news is that you needn't spend upwards of £2500 / $2500 on something like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ or Acer Predator X27 to get one that's halfway decent. Indeed, you can happily shave off one of those zeroes and get the brilliant value for money BenQ EL2870U, or even…

Viewsonic Elite XG240R review: A 144Hz FreeSync monitor that’s G-Sync a go-go

When it comes to 24in AMD FreeSync gaming monitors with high 144Hz refresh rates, there are few that do it better than AOC's G2460PF. An oldie but a goodie, this £209 / $190 height-adjustable gaming display has long been the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] to buy in this particular category, but today a new contender has stepped up to the plate in the form…

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: GTX 1070 vs Vega 56

Take a look at the specs of any of today's gaming laptops and there's a 99.9% chance it's got an Intel CPU and Nvidia graphics chip inside it. That's mostly because AMD haven't really bothered with gaming laptops for the last couple of years, but that's slowly starting to change. Case in point: Acer's Predator Helios 500 laptop, which is available in both AMD and…

Iiyama GB2760HSU review: A 144Hz FreeSync monitor that does a damn good G-Sync impression

To G-Sync or not to G-Sync. That is the eternal question when buying a gaming monitor these days, especially when cheaper AMD FreeSync monitors such as the Iiyama G-Master GB2760HSU on test today can now also take advantage of a watered down G-Sync-esque experience thanks to Nvidia finally opening up their variable refresh rate standard at the beginning of the year. Iiyama's GB2760HSU isn't, I…

In sync at last: Nvidia’s new driver that enables G-Sync on your Freesync is out now

There's a twist in the tale of the today's latest Nvidia driver, as it finally adds support for FreeSync monitors. For years now, there's been a GeForce tax if you wanted a screen with Nvidia's brand of adaptive sync - that is, the one that can adjust its refresh rate, and therefore in-game frame rate, with wild abandon, and more importantly without that icky screen-tearing…

CES 2019: Razer’s Raptor monitor has incredible cable management

Razer announced they were finally jumping headfirst into the world of gaming monitors at this year's CES, and man alive does this 27in display get a lot of things right. Dubbed the Razer Raptor, this 2560x1440 IPS screen is still in the early stages of development at the moment, but even now there's plenty to admire here. Indeed, the thing I'm most excited about isn't…

AOC U2879VF review: 4K gaming on the cheap

The [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s with 4K resolutions often cost an absolute fortune these days, mostly because of all the RGB bells and Nvidia G-Sync whistles that tend to accompany them. The delightfully plain 28in AOC U2879VF, however, sits at the opposite end of the spectrum, ditching several of the fancy extras you'd find on your typical 4K 'gaming' screen in favour of a…

AOC G2590PX review: A fussy 144Hz gaming monitor

The AOC G2590PX is the latest version of the excellent AOC G2460PF. Now with a marginally bigger screen and a sleeker, more modern design, I was absolutely convinced this 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync display would be an absolute shoo-in to replace the G2460PF as one of my [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] recommendations for 2018. Sadly, it would appear my confidence was misplaced.

Feature: 1920x1080 on a 31.5in screen? Really?

BenQ EX3200R review: 144Hz gaming with one giant problem

The BenQ EX3200R has possibly the weirdest combination of monitor specs I've seen in quite some time. It's a giant 31.5in screen with a big-ass stand and 1800mm curvature radius, so it sits right up in your grill and encompasses a large part of your overall vision, yet it's only got a 1920x1080 resolution. 1920x1080, spread across a 31.5in screen! That's like having your phone's…

Feature: Nit-picking Acer's new monitors

Acer introduce new family of Nitro gaming monitors that (hopefully) won’t break the bank

Just when you thought you'd had your fill of BRAND talk this week with the Asus Arez / ROG kerfuffle, Acer have jumped in on the action as well with the introduction of their new Nitro family of gaming monitors. A more entry-level series than their flagship Predator range, these new monitors may not have all the bells and whistles of Acer's Nvidia G-Sync HDR-enabled Predator X27, for example, but they still…

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…
