For those in the know, Nvidia does not just release graphic processors and keep quiet they look into the ecosystem of a hardcore gamer and tries to make sure the total experience is unparalleled. It’s G-SYNC technology for monitors is one example, the company worked with panel manufacturers and hardware companies to raise refresh rates to 120Hz and even the technology to laptops for that smooth detailed picture while gaming.
Pushing the limits again, Nvidia has launched a 4K 144Hz G-SYNC HDR monitors featuring peak brightness of 1,000 nits, resulting in vivid visuals, bold saturated colors and contrast for richer, more natural dark scenes increasing the colour gamut by another 25%. Two manufacturers will be releasing the 27″ monitors this month with Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ and the Acer Predator X27.
Some major difference gamers can notice on the HDR monitors are the increased nits, the peak brightness of 1,000 nits, and an ultra-low minimum brightness, makes HDR games look and feel more realistic during both a game’s day and night. And through the use of a 384-zone controllable backlight, the brightness of any section of the display can be dynamically adjusted at any time, enabling realistic view of a dark night sky in an illuminated town, or a sun in deep space.
The other aspect is the increase colour gamut, the improved backlighting delivers deep saturated reds and greens out of the blue light produced by the 384 controllable LED backlight zones. The result is a stunning effect matched by the best digital cinemas.
