Feature: Is the Agon AG353UCG the best ultrawide monitor yet?

AOC’s latest ultrawide monitor is a 200Hz Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate super screen

I love playing games on a good ultrawide monitor, and the AOC Agon AG353UCG is arguably the fanciest one that's ever crossed my desk. It's got all the bells and whistles you could possibly want: a curved 35in screen, a 3440x1440 resolution, a massive 200Hz refresh rate and full Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate support, which means it can do proper, high-end TV-grade HDR with a peak…

Asus have made the world’s first 360Hz gaming monitor

It's CES over in Las Vegas right now (that's the Consumer Electronics Show to give it its full and proper name), where hardware manufacturers from around the world offer up their latest gadgets and gizmos to give us a glimpse of all the cool things they've got planned for 2020. This year, the hot topic seems to be mad gaming monitors, and Asus have just…

Feature: But it's not great value for money

Acer’s Predator XN253Q is a perfectly okay 144Hz Nvidia G-Sync screen

Ever since Nvidia introduced their list of G-Sync Compatible monitors so that cheap AMD FreeSync screens could play nice with Nvidia graphics cards, full-fat G-Sync monitors have had to work a heck of a lot harder to earn their keep. After all, why pay almost double the money to get smooth, tear-free gaming on a proper G-Sync monitor when you can get pretty much the…

Feature: What more could you possibly want?

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

Nvidia's G-Sync Ultimate monitors may be some of the best gaming monitors 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 screen, but…

Take a look at any of our 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 one does,…

Nvidia’s list of official G-Sync Compatible monitors grows to 17

Nvidia have added another two screens to their list of G-Sync Compatible monitors. The pair of new additions are both Asus monitors - the 25in 1920x1080 VG258 and 27in 1920x1080 VG278QR - taking the total number of adaptive sync / AMD FreeSync screens that can offer a watered-down version of Nvidia's own variable refresh rate G-Sync tech without falling to pieces to seventeen. That's not…

Feature: The Red Eagle has landed

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…

Feature: Going against the grain

AOC Agon AG273QCG review: 1440p G-Sync goodness, with a catch

Nvidia G-Sync monitors already cost an arm and a leg more than regular gaming monitors, but bump the resolution up to 2560x1440 and throw in a curved panel with a 165Hz refresh rate and you're looking at spending an arm and a leg plus both of your kidneys. All right, so £649 / $650 for AOC's new Agon AG273QCG isn't quite as bad as, say,…

Nvidia add three more monitors to their G-Sync Compatible list, plus a new Metro Exodus RTX bundle

Nvidia have announced that another three monitors have joined their exclusive G-Sync Compatible monitors list today, taking the total number of adaptive sync / FreeSync monitors that can officially sort of take advantage of their swish variable refresh rate G-Sync tech to 15. And if that wasn't enough, Nvidia have also added Metro Exodus to their current RTX graphics card bundle, giving new RTX buyers…

Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…

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: Nvidia welcome select FreeSync monitors to the fold in new G-Sync overhaul

The arrival of the RTX 2060 wasn't the only trick Nvidia had up their sleeve at this year's CES conference, as they also announced a couple of interesting changes to their adaptive refresh rate G-Sync tech for gaming monitors. Chief among them was a new driver update for a select group of non-G-Sync screens that will effectively render them just as good as your official…

Feature: A very swift way to empty your bank account

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ review: 4K HDR has arrived, but good grief, HOW MUCH?

When I saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ for the first time back in May earlier this year, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After more than a year of waiting, false starts and simply not being able to have as much fun as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs, both the PG27UQ and the Acer Predator…

Feature: A 24in 1920x1080 gaming monitor that's hard to beat

Acer Predator XB241H review: G-Sync and 180Hz goodness

After testing what seems like 387,001 monitors with AMD FreeSync support, I've finally got another honest-to-goodness Nvidia G-Sync one on my desk today, the Acer Predator XB241H - and boy, it's a good 'un. Part of Acer's XB1 range, this particular incarnation is the 24in, 1920x1080, TN model. It also comes as a 24in, 2560x1440 jobber and several different permutations with 27in, 28in and 32in…

Asus PG27UQ release date confirmed for June, but the price of this 4K G-Sync HDR monitor is still unknown

It's been 18 months since Asus' super duper Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor, the ROG Swift PG27UQ, was first announced to the world, but now the wait is almost over. Nvidia hinted last week we wouldn't have to wait too long before it starting appearing on shop shelves, but now Asus themselves have confirmed the PG27UQ will definitely be here this June in all its 4K HDR…

Feature: Let them eat HDR cake

Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR monitors are the real deal and will be here in just four weeks time

HDR, or high dynamic range, has been around for a while, and you've probably heard countless barks from your console box friends about how amazing that new Dad of War looks on their giant OLED telly, or how they can never go back to a 'normal' screen after experiencing the wondrous glory of Final Fantasy Toast (even we're a bit guilty of that last one,…

Feature: Everything and the kitchen G-Sync

Asus ROG Swift PG248Q review: A 180Hz miracle monitor?

Buying a monitor used to be a fairly simple affair. You’d pick one black rectangle from the dozens of other black rectangles, and if you really pushed the boat out you might get one with an adjustable stand, or, heaven forbid, a rotating screen. These days, there’s a lot more going on. You can still opt for the faithful black rectangle, but if you’re the…

8K non-gaming and the importance of pixels

Yes, yes, I know 8K gaming is an utter irrelevance. Frankly, 4K remains a niche gaming resolution. But hang with me. 8K monitors are popping up from major manufacturers and with them the build-it-and-they-will-come logic of gaming at a preposterous resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels. The fact that gaming at 8K isn’t really viable with current hardware is, up to a point, a separate…
