AMD FreeSync 2 HDR is dead, long live FreeSync Premium and Premium Pro

On top of announcing their new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card and a bunch of new 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 laptop processors yesterday, AMD also announced some changes to their various FreeSync standards at this year's CES. Until now, we had regular FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR, the latter offering exactly the same variable refresh rate tech for super smooth, tear-free gaming as regular…

Feature: A FreeSync 2 HDR monitor that can be enjoyed by all

AOC Agon AG273QX review: Finally, a perfect 1440p, HDR monitor

I love a great 1920x1080 gaming monitor as much as the next person, but personally, I've always been more of a 2560x1440 kinda gal. The problem is, my current recommendation for 1440p is the increasingly scarce MSI Optix MPG27CQ, and I've been desperately trying to find a replacement for it all year. BenQ's EX3203R came close, but was let down by its pants HDR, while…

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: 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 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 still an excellent,…

Feature: A 4K, 144Hz, HDR screen for a fraction of the price

Acer’s Nvidia BFGD is still MIA, but their Predator CG437KP could be the next best thing

Conspicuous by its absence is a phrase that springs to mind when it comes to Acer's Nvidia BFGD, or Big Format Gaming Display. The mega monitor was first revealed back in January 2018, but at Acer's Next event in New York last week it was still nowhere to be seen. Instead, Acer revealed the Predator CG437KP - another giant 4K, 144Hz HDR gaming screen, only…

Feature: To boldly go where no gaming monitor has a-gon before?

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…

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…
