NVIDIA’s New G-SYNC HDR Module Adds $500 to Monitor Pricing

The guys over at PCPer have disassembled the brand new ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ, which is a 27-inch, 4K, 144 Hz, G-SYNC HDR monitor that costs $1999. Upon inspection they found that the G-SYNC module inside is a newer one compared to the one that is used in 1st generation G-SYNC displays (which does not support 4K / 144 Hz / HDR). This module is powered by an Altera-made FPGA with the model Arria 10 GX 480.

New 4K 144 Hz Monitors use Blurry Chroma Subsampling

Display makers had to find a way to get these displays running at 4K 144 Hz, so what they came up with was chroma subsampling (YCbCr), which transmits the grayscale portion of the image at full resolution (3840×2160) and the color information at half the horizontal resolution (1920×2160).

Viotek GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz Monitor Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Viotek’s 32-inch GN32Q, which was their 1440p curved 144Hz display with a really cool rose gold design. While 32-inches is a good size, it seems most serious gamers feel a 27-inch or 24-inch display is really the sweet spot as you really don’t have to move your head around at all the view the entire screen. Viotek’s GN27D features a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync. Compared to the GB32Q the GN27D definitely looks more like a gaming display with its all black design and slim stand. Even better is that this display is only $369.99 on Amazon, making it one of the most affordable 27-inch 1440p 144Hz curved display out there. Is this display worth picking up? Read on as we find out!
