Asus has a 540Hz monitor that allows you to transfer its ft
It’s a 24.1-inch 1080p G-Sync panel that’s sadly saddled with TN display expertise, recognized for its refresh charges relatively than viewing angles or extensive shade gamut. However the monitor pulls a reasonably cool trick: the stand permits you to pop out and in its ft to slot in narrower areas and lock them in place.
The opposite factor it has over the Alienware is a value: Asus rep Cat Tompkins tells The Verge it ought to value $899 USD.
It’s additionally obtained a built-in ESS Quad DAC with “near-zero audio latency,” presumably to pipe killer audio out of your PC to its 3.5mm headphone jack. Asus boasts that it truly has “above 90% DCI-P3” when it comes to the colours it will probably show. Its twin HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0 relatively than 2.1, which implies you in all probability gained’t have variable refresh price on your recreation consoles, although you’ll in all probability be utilizing DP 1.4 out of your PC to realize the excessive refresh charges anyhow. Just like the Alienware and a few earlier screens, it comes with Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer.
I nonetheless assume 500Hz screens are overkill for the explanations I laid out this morning: “the response time distinction between a 360Hz panel and a 500Hz one is lower than one-thousandth of a second — 0.78 milliseconds, to be precise — and solely in video games the place your graphics card or chip can truly ship 500 frames per second,” I wrote.
But when that’s precisely what you’re in search of, you’ll have no less than two choices this yr.
