NEC MultiSync EA244UHD 24-Inch 4K Monitor Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're evaluating NEC's new MultiSync EA244UHD, a 24-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor. As part of NEC's EA series, this monitor is intended for high-end desktop users as opposed to professional graphics users, though there are features of the EA244UHD that may tempt potential customers who fall into the latter category. Things that separate this monitor from a traditional desktop display include extras like up to four-way display matrix support (there are multiple inputs for connecting multiple PCs), a ControlSync feature that lets users control the settings for up to half a dozen daisy-chained displays, a high-speed USB 3.0 hub, and a standard warranty that even covers the backlight for the first three years.

Dynamic Super Resolution
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of course, along with the new GPU were a set of new product features coming along for the ride. Two of the most impressive were Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) and Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) but only one was available at launch: DSR. With it, you could take advantage of the extreme power of the GTX 980/970 with older games, render in a higher resolution than your panel, and have it filtered down to match your screen in post. The results were great. But NVIDIA spent as much time talking about MFAA (not mother-fu**ing AA as it turned out) during the product briefings and I was shocked when I found out the feature wouldn't be ready to test or included along with launch. That changes today with the release of NVIDIA's 344.75 driver, the first to implement support for the new and potentially important anti-aliasing method.

AOC U2868PQU 4K UHD 28 inch LCD Monitor Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since i got my first "serious" computer system back in 1990 (based on the Intel 80286 CPU) and my first serious gaming only system (the Commodore Amiga 500) roughly a year earlier (which i then upgraded to the 500 Plus model) I’ve always loved playing my favorite games on the largest screen possible. Of course until the late 90's a 17 inch EIZO CRT monitor was pretty much all i could afford but all that changed with the arrival of TFT monitors since by 2005 i was enjoying games on a 21.5 inch Super-IPS model by Samsung. Well after that things progressed much faster thanks to the arrival of the Full HD resolution (1920x1080) era so by 2009 i was using a 26 inch IPS monitor by NEC for gaming and an 55 inch LCD screen by SONY for watching movies. Now 4k Ultra HD resolution (3840x2160) has arrived and with it so have several compatible monitors and TV screens but is it as tempting and impressive as Full HD was over 5 years ago? Well in an effort to find out today we're testing the first 4k Ultra HD compatible monitor by AOC the U2868PQU.

A Look into Reported G-Sync Display Flickering
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 10:34A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The relatively small ripple to the left and right of center demonstrate the panel output at just under 144 FPS. Panel redraw is in sync with the frames coming from the GPU at this rate. The center section, however, represents what takes place when the input from the GPU suddenly drops to zero. In the above case, the game briefly stalled, then resumed a few frames at 144, then stalled again for a much longer period of time. Completely stopping the panel refresh would result in all TN pixels bleeding towards white, so G-Sync has a built-in failsafe to prevent this by forcing a redraw every ~33 msec. What you are seeing are the pixels intermittently bleeding towards white and periodically being pulled back down to the appropriate brightness by a scan."

ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q G-SYNC Monitor Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Nov 16 2014 | 6:35P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) SWIFT PG278Q 27-inch WQHD G-Sync display has been lauded as the best gaming monitor for the second half of 2014. This monitor boasts a 27-inch WQHD LED display boasts a 2560 x 1440 (16:9) screen resolution on a TN panel with 109 pixels per inch (PPI) all tucked inside a sleek looking enclosure that has a supper narrow 6mm thick bezel. Brightness on the PG278Q is rated at up to 350 cd/m² and it has a 1000:1 contrast ratio with the ability to display 72% of the NTSC color gamut. It also has gamer oriented features like NVIDIA G-Sync technology, a super fast 144MHz refresh rate, 1ms response times, support for NVIDIA 3D Vision, Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) and This display won`t be able to match the Adobe RGB performance seen on IPS or IGZO monitors, but you should be able to calibrate it for 100% sRGB and it looks pretty damn good at nearly any viewing angle. Basically, this is one high-end gaming monitor! Read on to learn more about it! "

One of the more intriguing capabilities Nvidia introduced with the GeForce GTX 970 and 980 is a feature called Dynamic Super Resolution, or DSR, for short. Nvidia bills it as a means of getting 4K quality on a 2K display. How good is it? We take a look."

Acer XB280HK 28-in 4K G-Sync Monitor Review
     Fri, Sep 26 2014 | 8:34A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer 4K panel looks absolutely stunning when gaming at 3840x2160 and if you read over the GTX 980 / GTX 970 review and learned about NVIDIA`s Dynamic Super Resolution technology, you can see why even lower resolution displays would want to take advantage of 4K rendering. Games like Crysis 3 and Skyrim look awesome with scalable textures and details visible that simply aren`t there in any other configuration. The problem with a 4K resolution is of course the rendering horsepower required to run it - expect to need twice the GPU (either higher end cards or SLI) to really run 4K gaming at similar image quality settings you would with a 2560x1440 screen."

HIS Multi View Display Adapters Review
     Mon, Sep 01 2014 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“HIS have provided three different hardware adapters for those users who lack the ability to add additional displays to their system setup: the Multi View II, the Multi View X2, and the Multi View+Sound. Each of these offer different features, but all work on the same premise: a USB or DVI adapter expands your ability to add more displays to your setup in a simple manner. Let’s take a closer look at these adapters from HIS.”

Elite Screens ezCinema Plus 100 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 29 2014 | 10:47A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As some of you know we use a few projectors at our LAN events. In between events I have been known to setup a projector in the office to watch a movie, watch eSport streams, and even play a few games. The problem I have in the office is our textured walls dont exactly give the best picture. Because of that and because we would like more flexibility for setting up at our events I have been on the lookout for a projector screen for a while now. My requirements were something that is portable, so it can be taken to our events no matter their location, easy/quick to setup, and of course, I would like it to give the best picture possible in different environments. I came across a company called Elite Screens that manufactures a wide selection of screens and found the ezCinema Plus Series that fit our requirements and even didnt break the bank. Today Im going to take a look at the ezCinema Plus in its largest size (100 inches) and see how well it performs."
