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…

Best gaming monitor 2019: Top 1080p, 1440p and 4K HDR displays

It's tempting to cut corners when buying a gaming monitor, especially if you've already spent hundreds of pounds or dollars upgrading your PC or shelling out for one of today's [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s. But your monitor is arguably one of the most important parts of your entire setup. After all, there's no point buying a fancy graphics card when your gaming display isn't…

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,…

The lost dimension: Nvidia ending 3D Vision support

Nvidia plan to soon stop supporting 3D Vision, the 3D glasses system they introduced in 2009. The GeForce driver release in April will be the last to support 3D Vision, so folks who wish to keep using their goggs will need to stick to older drivers - which could suffer compatibility and performance problems in the future. 3D Vision created the appearance of physical depth…

Alienware AW2518H review: A great Nvidia G-Sync monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate

Ever since Nvidia announced they were opening up their G-Sync certification process to include a cut-down version of their variable refresh rate tech for AMD FreeSync screens at the beginning of the year, it's left proper, full-fat G-Sync gaming monitors such as Alienware's AW2518H in a slightly precarious position. After all, when G-Sync monitors often cost so much more than their FreeSync competition, why would…

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 fold 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 another…

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…

Feature: This huge 40in monitor has a dark secret

Philips BDM4037UW review: Amazing colours, poor brightness

I don't know about you, but I love having multiple monitors on my desk. Every time I go away and have to work on my tiny 15in laptop screen, I groan inwardly. I mean, how am I meant to check emails, look at product specs, have the RPS team Slack open and do all my writing when I've only got a single 1920x1080 screen at…

MSI publish then pull list of apparently G-Sync Compatible monitors

Last night, MSI published a news post on their website detailing which of their gaming monitors had been "effectively" deemed G-Sync Compatible screens after running some of their own internal tests on them. This morning, that post has mysteriously vanished, suggesting something might be amiss with either the wording of the post or the list of monitors themselves. I've reached out to MSI for clarification…

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…

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: The best 4K HDR gaming monitor that doesn't cost the earth

Philips 436M6VBPAB review: Our new 4K HDR champion

Every time an HDR monitor arrives on my desk, I say a small prayer to the gaming monitor gods: "Please, PLEASE let this one be good." I don't care if it's hideously expensive like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ or Acer Predator X27, I just want one that does HDR well and does it without a boat load of fuss and settings twiddling. Readers, my…

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 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…

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…
