Feature: "We spared no expense!"

The Razer Raptor is the T-Rex of 1440p gaming monitors

It's been a long time coming, but Razer's Raptor 27 monitor is finally here - and hoo boy does it impress. When I first saw the prototype of this 27in, 2560x1440, 144Hz, FreeSync screen at CES last year, I oohed and ahhed at its striking design, metal cable tidies and fabric-wrapped display. Now, having tested the final model over the past couple of weeks, I've…

MSI Optix MAG272CQR review: another fantastic 165Hz, 1440p gaming monitor

After a string of slightly disappointing 1440p gaming monitors last year, the last couple of screens that have crossed my desk have really knocked it out of the park. AOC's Agon AG273QX currently stands at the top of the pile with its superb picture quality and hassle-free FreeSync 2 HDR support (wot AMD are now calling FreeSync Premium Pro, in case you've forgotten), and now…

Last week, you may have noticed that I've started rounding up all the of the week in their own dedicated deals page. However, some deals, like today's offer on the excellent Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR, just don't last that long, as Amazon US are only offering $113 off this curved 2560x1440, 144Hz HDR monitor for the next 17 hours or so.

Feature: Especially when you hate buying new PCs

Everything you need to know about upgrading your PC in 2020

Some of you love building a PC. You’re well into hardware trends and technical innovations and model numbers and all of that. This is fine and valid. But a lot of players are just not interested. They love games on the PC, but the machinery itself is irrelevant. I am one of those people. I’m not totally clueless. I know some basics. I can put…

Feature: Taking a stand against desk-hogging monitors

Samsung’s Space monitor is a revelation

Why aren't more gaming monitors like the Samsung Space monitor? If there's one thing I've come to loathe about some of our jumbo picks, it's their desk-hogging stands. Some monitors I tested last year practically demanded their own table, their stands were so enormous, while others barely left enough room for my keyboard and mouse mat. Not so with the Samsung Space. This 32in 4K…

AOC have a new 49in monitor to rival Samsung’s CRG9

At the end of last year, you may have noticed I took quite a shine to the enormous Samsung CRG9 monitor. With its 49in screen and 5120x1440 resolution, it was an absolutely fantastic way to play Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as many of the other best ultrawide PC games available right now. Well, now AOC have one to rival it. Just like the…

I’m worried that MSI’s new HMI gaming monitor is going to kill me in my sleep

There have been plenty of new monitor announcements over the course of this week's CES tech jamboree, but none have been more terrifying than MSI's Optix MEG381CQR. This curved 38in ultrawide display is one of several new gaming screens coming from MSI this year, but it will be the first to incorporate Human Machine Interface elements, or HMI for short. It's not entirely clear what…

LG enters Nvidia BFGD arena with 12 OLED G-Sync Compatible TVs

It's all gone a bit quiet on the Nvidia BFGD (or Big Format Gaming Display) front recently, but this year's CES tech celebration has finally yielded some very promising news. LG are entering the fray this year with 12 G-Sync Compatible OLED TVs. That's right. Proper OLED TVs, not extortionate over-priced monitors.

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…

Acer’s massive 55in OLED monitor is coming for your TV

I really wasn't kidding when I said the hot topic of this year's CES was mad gaming monitors, as Acer have just their giant Predator CG552K screen. Measuring 55in across its diagonal, this 4K, 120Hz OLED screen could be just the thing to replace your ageing TV with if you're after some lovely big screen gaming down in your living room.

This year, the hot topic seems to be mad gaming monitors, and Asus have just…

Feature: The best games in the whole wide world

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…

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…
