iiyama Expands Their G-Master Portfolio With Two New Curved Red Eagle Monitors

iiyama expands their G-Master portfolio with two new curved Red Eagle monitors - a 24" FHD G2466HSU and a 32" QHD GB3266QSU. Inspired by the human field of view, the 1500R (24") and 1800R (32") curvature of the new Red Eagles brings the edges of the monitors into a more comfortable distance, allowing users to take full advantage of peripheral vision; offering deeper immersion without distortion. FreeSync Premium support means the screens guarantee low input latency and low framerate compensation putting an end to any tearing or stuttering issues at virtually any framerate.

The 24-inch G2466HSU features 165Hz refresh rate and the 32" GB3266QSU - 144Hz. Both offer 1 ms MPRT response time. The Adaptive Sync technology provides dynamic adjusting of the monitors vertical refresh rate to the frame rate of the graphics card while the low framerate compensation effectively removes the minimum refresh rate boundary, putting an end to virtually any tearing or stuttering issues.
VA panel technology provides excellent contrast ratio making all the nuances between the light and dark colors clearly visible. To further enhance visibility in shadowed areas, users can switch on the Black Tuner function improving viewing performance and helping to spot the enemy earlier.

Both monitors are equipped with HDMI and DisplayPort inputs. They also feature a headphone connector and USB hub with charging function. The flicker-free and blue light reducer technologies reduce the strain put on the eyes by long hours spent in front of the screen.

The GB3266QSU is designed with ergonomics in mind. It features a height-adjustable stand with tilt, swivel and height adjustment capabilities helping maintain a healthy body posture and promoting comfort during marathon gaming sessions.

What is the point of a 24" curved monitor, it's already so narrow, so unless you sit with your nose almost touching the screen, what does it do, besides badly distorting the image?

I possibly could see the point of a 36" or 40" desktop curved monitor, as it would curve into your peripheral vision, and would be more immersive in games. But forget any kind of real computer uses with all those curved lines that should not be there.

Not quite. 24 inch 144hz curved VA panel from Samsung is cheap and plentiful. So monitor makers can make sub-$200 monitors easily. Alternative is Panda 24 inch 144hz IPS panel used in AOC 24G2, Acer VG240YP and ASUS VG249Q. But seeing these are rarely in stock, I guess there's manufacturing issues.

A step-up is 25 inch 144hz IPS from AU Optronics. I call it a step-up because this panel is mostly found on $250 monitors e.g. ASUS VG259Q and Benq EX2510.

Ofc all these panels have 27 inch counterparts as well. Obviously samsung VA one is curved as well.
