LG 34UC89G UltraWide 166Hz IPS with G-SYNC

With its 144Hz IPS panel and UltraWide aspect ratio, the LG 34UC79G generated a lot of interest amongst gamers. One notable missing feature for those with Nvidia GPUs, though, was support for their G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. The LG 34UC89G (also referred to as the 34UC89G-B owing to the black rear) sets to redress this balance.

Nvidia G-SYNC – variable refresh rate technology

Traditionally monitors operate at a fixed refresh rate – commonly 60Hz, 120Hz or 144Hz. When running graphically intensive content, such as games, frame rate can be expected to fluctuate in response to varying levels of ‘demand’ from the game or application. This introduces something of a dilemma for gamers in particular. They are forced to choose one of two main options that determine how the GPU handles its ‘passing of frames’ to the monitor– ‘VSync off’ or ‘VSync on’.

AOC AG322QCX WQHD 144Hz VA model

The number of monitors available with significantly higher refresh rates than the standard 60Hz has been steadily increasing in recent times. For those who like large screens but also appreciate decent pixel densities and want to stick with the 16:9 aspect ratio, the choice has been a bit limited thus far. The AOC AG322QCX, which belongs to the rapidly expanding line of AGON models, may be just what such users have been waiting for.

Samsung C34H890 100Hz VA UltraWide with 1800R curve

Samsung first released the S34E790C, with a relatively gentle 3000R curve and 60Hz refresh rate. It then introduced the C34F791, bringing with it some fairly radical design changes; a much steeper 1500R curve, 100Hz refresh rate, ‘Quantum Dot’ backlight and an entirely new colour (to name but a few). The C34H890 (C34H890WJ with various additional suffixes and prefixes) dials things back a bit, forming something of a mid-way model between these two.

Dell Alienware AW2518H and AW2518HF 240Hz TN models

We’ve brought you news of a number of 240Hz TN models built with competitive gaming in mind, but more generally designed for anybody who values speed amongst pretty much everything else. Some of these models offer support for G-SYNC and others FreeSync, forcing some users to forgo features or aesthetics that they might like on one particular model because it doesn’t ‘fit with their GPU brand’.

Samsung S24H850 and S27H850 with WQHD PLS panels

For both work and play, the 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution remains a popular choice for the amount of real-estate provided and the relative ease of driving it in graphically intensive applications. At least, compared to higher resolutions such as 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD). The Samsung S24H850 packs this WQHD resolution into a 23.8” screen, much like Dell P2416D and a few other models did.
