BenQ Releases G-Sync Gaming Monitors

BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, today announced the unveiling of two new gaming monitors at this year's International CES. Featuring NVIDIA's G-Sync technology, the company's new XL2420G and XL2720G displays eliminate performance issues related to image tearing, stuttering, and latency - providing gamers with the ultimate in smooth, fast-action play.

The monitors come equipped with BenQ's RevolutionEyes technology, helping users take a turn for the better by providing the comfort needed for exceptional monitor performance during competitive play.

"Our new line of G-Sync gaming monitors confirms BenQ's commitment to making the market's most advanced technologies available to today's avid gaming community," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development for BenQ America Corp. "Equipped with three new gaming modes powered by G-Sync technology, our innovative XL monitors feature seamless graphic card synchronization for the smoothest picture quality possible. The monitors also come pre-loaded with BenQ's RevolutionEyes technology featuring ZeroFlicker, Black Equalizer, and Low Blue Light capabilities - providing competitive players with the critical performance tools needed for edging out their opponents."

Based on BenQ's market-changing XL gaming monitor series, the new XL2420G and XL2720G displays add three new G-Sync gaming modes to further augment the gaming experience: the G-Sync Mode for smooth, low-latency gaming; Low Motion Blur Mode for CRT-like sharpness of moving objects; and a full-featured 3D Vision Mode to create more lifelike on-screen action. By synchronizing the displays' refresh rate to the graphic cards' GPU, G-Sync technology eliminates screen tearing for better graphic integrity, minimizes stutter for smoother gaming, and reduces input lag for seamless, low-latency gaming responses. The result is scenes that display instantly, sharper object resolutions, and smoother overall gameplay.

To increase visual comfort, the 24-inch (XL2420G) and 27-inch (XL2720G) displays feature BenQ's new RevolutionEyes technology. Including ZeroFlicker capabilities, the monitors eliminate traditional LED flicker issues to support eSports enthusiasts in longer gaming sessions by providing more comfort during competitive action. The RevolutionEyes monitors also feature BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. The duo also brings an ultra-fast 144 Hz refresh rate and GTG response time for faster pixel rates - giving players complete control over their gaming experience.

For even more gaming comfort, the display duo is equipped with Low Blue Light technology. Designed to manage the exposure of blue spectrum light, the monitors help gamers protect their eyes during extended periods by providing several adjustable low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality. For setup flexibility, the monitors are fully height-adjustable and feature an intuitive on-screen user interface.

BenQ's new XL2420G and XL2720G G-Sync monitors are expected to ship in Q1 2014.

It sucks that most of these monitors are most likely going to be 1080p resolution. I'm getting tired of it, make 1440/1600p the standard already, it's been long enough. Heck, I think 1080p has had a stronghold longer than Windows XP had on the OS front.

Any word if G-sync kit will work for BenQ 2420TE 144hz monitor? I just got it a few months back loving it very much so, but would be nice if I could upgrade to G-sync.

I should've been more specific then. 1440p/1600p screens at greater than 60hz refresh rates. LCDs with greater than 1080p resolution have been around for a long time, I just haven't seen too many innovations integrating the 3 most important tech specs;
> 1080p resolution, 120hz refresh rates, IPS or other non-TN panel

Having a IPS panel doesn't freaking mean that your display won't suck, just FYI.

Anyway, so these are pretty much the new Z suffix XL series, but with G-Sync, right? It's gonna be interesting to compare the price between the two. XL2720Z isn't cheap to begin with.

Either way, I'm gonna pass, had well enough of this proprietary nonsense.

I know that. It's just that IPS panels have a lot better color reproduction vs. TN panels. That's a fact. No need to get defensive. I like what I like.
