Monitoring The Current Gaming Display Market
A Panel Of Reviewers Offers Their Opinions
You might not be able to grab a new GPU right now, but there is still a way to improve the visuals in your favourite games, or to get a bit more screen real estate for your work. Gaming displays actually do seem to be far more readily available than GPUs, so pop on by to Techspot to take a look at the various displays they recommend.
Aspect ratio has become as big a topic of conversation as resolution, so the inclusion of ultra-widescreen displays is a nice touch. They chose 3440 x 1440 as the resolution of choice, with LG’s UltraGear 34GN850 34″ curved display getting top billing. This 160Hz display showed an average 4ms response time, decent for an IPS and much better than you can expect from a VA panel, it will cost you around $1000.
If you are more interested in G-SYNC Ultra and the brightness and contrast associated with VA panels, check out the Acer Predator X35 or ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ. Of course those cost more than twice the LG, with the ASUS over $3500. There is even the Samsung Odyssey G9 for those who are seriously into size, as it is a 240Hz 49″ 5120 x 1440 display. If you can picture two 1440p displays side by side you get an idea.
Check out their looks at monitors of other resolutions in the full round up.
