ASUS PG27AQ ROG SWIFT – 4K G-SYNC model

The PG278Q ROG SWIFT has won over many gamers with its mixture of high resolution, high refresh rate and support for Nvidia G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. We have to stop affectionately referring to this model simply as the ‘ROG SWIFT’, though, because there’s now another ‘ROG SWIFT’ in town. The ASUS PG27AQ brandishes the same title but is an altogether different beast – on the inside, at least.

Samsung S24E650C and S27E650C

Samsung really are keen to get users to adopt curved screens for their computers, be it on their home or office desk. From our experience with their curved 34” UltraWide model, the curve is certainly a welcome (albeit subtle) addition. The company also has a range of considerably less wide displays in the 16:9 aspect ratio, including the S24E510C and S27E510C.

Acer XF270HU 144Hz WQHD FreeSync monitor

The Acer XB270HU is an interesting addition to the gaming monitor market, combining a 144Hz AHVA (IPS-type) panel with a 2560 x 2440 (WQHD) resolution and G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. G-SYNC is certainly a nice addition found on a rising number of gaming monitors as it allows the monitor to dynamically alter its refresh rate to coincide, where possible, with the frame rate of the content.

AOC G2460PF and G2770PF FreeSync gaming models

Whilst only one of several elements of responsiveness, high refresh rates have the potential to really bolster the fluidity of the gaming experience. But for variable frame rate environments, where the frame rate of the game doesn’t match up with the refresh rate of the monitor, things can quite literally get a bit choppy. If you enable VSync (triple buffering or not) then you’re subjected to stuttering, whereas if you disable VSync you’re left with tearing and juddering.

Samsung U24E850R, U28E850R and U32E850R

We’ve previously introduced the ‘UE590’ (Series 5) models which combine the 3840 x 2160 ‘4K’ UHD resolution with Adaptive-Sync (i.e. AMD FreeSync support). Samsung are also embellishing their Series 8 line-up with some new ‘UE850’ models; the U24E850R (LU24E85KRS), U28E850R (LU28E85KRS) and U32E850R (LU32E85KRS). The two smaller models are essentially very similar on the inside to the UE590 models already covered, with key differences being that all of the UE850 models feature more inputs and of course different housing.

Acer XB321HK – ‘4K’ UHD model with G-SYNC

Having reviewed the BenQ BL3201PT/PH and Samsung U32E850R with AMD FreeSync support, it’s safe to say that we find the ~32” screen size to be something of a sweet spot for the UHD resolution. And also that variable refresh rate technologies can add something very nice indeed to the gaming experience on such models. For Nvidia users hoping to see this sort of monitor with their beloved G-SYNC technology, the wait may well be over.
