The PC space will get the ultimate HDR gaming experience
NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) has officially announced G-Sync HDR this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017. HDR has been a buzzword in the television space and many of the advancements seen this week heavily revolves around it, but the tech is now coming to PC in a grander fashion.
Partners Asus and Acer have announced world’s first 4K HDR monitors: Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ and Acer Predator XB272-HDR. Both monitors represent the pinnacle of technology, featuring 4K 144Hz, HDR, DP1.4, and HDMI 2.0 ports. And did I mention they are Quantum Dot displays with full-array backlighting? NVIDIA says the two monitors feature 384-zone backlights that can be controlled individually. The monitors have full HDR10 support and have a 25% larger color space than sRGB and is “close to the DCI-P3 standard.”
And with the inclusion of G-Sync, you can expect to have a visual experience that is not only visually stunning, but also responsive and tear-free. NVIDIA touts that its G-Sync HDR displays have “near-zero” input latency compared to the best of televisions that fall between 22-41ms.
Asus ROG Switch PG27UQ is expected to arrive in third quarter (3Q), being priced at $1199. However, there is currently no word on price for Acer’s monitor.
