Acer Predator X27 review: The Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor that only lets you see half the fun

On paper, the Acer Predator X27 should be the bestest best gaming monitor to end all gaming monitors.

Nvidia’s BFGD: Everything we know so far about their Big Format Gaming Displays

It's been a little quiet on the Nvidia BFGD (or Big Format Gaming Display, to you and me) front lately, probably because said graphics giant wants to get the launch of their shiny new Turing RTX 2080 graphics cards out of the way first because they're probably the only GPUs in existence that will actually be able to make full use of their giant 4K,…

When I first saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ a couple of weeks ago, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After 18 months of waiting, false starts and an increasingly dizzying array of HDR standards, infuriating Windows 10 options and simply not being able to have as good a time as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs,…
