GIGABYTE Outs M28U 4K Gaming Monitor with Integrated KVM

GIGABYTE released the M28U, a unique 28-inch 4K Ultra HD gaming monitor that comes with an integrated KVM feature. This lets you effectively switch between two PCs. Simply plug the PCs to the monitor's multiple display inputs; plug your keyboard, mouse, and USB headset to the monitor's downstream USB ports, and the monitor's two upstream USB connections to the two PCs (one of these is a USB-C). Switching between the two is as easy as pressing a button on the monitor. This will prove particularly useful if you have a personal desktop and a company laptop to use in your home office, and don't want to clutter the place or waste time plugging things in and out.

As a display, the M28U is no slouch, its 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) IPS panel supports refresh rates of up to 144 Hz, 178°/178° viewing-angles, 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, DisplayHDR 400, and 1000:1 static contrast ratio. Display inputs include two HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4, and USB-C. From these, the USB-C input supports not just USB for the second PC's input, but also DisplayPort passthrough. If your second PC lacks an all-powerful USB-C, simply use any other display input, the USB-C will only take in upstream USB (which you can adapt to a type-A USB 3.0 port). The downstream USB hub puts out three 5 Gbps USB 3.0 ports. The company didn't reveal pricing.

AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.4.1 WHQL with Dozens of New Features

AMD today released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.4.1 drivers, which introduce major updates to the soft-product that completes your AMD Radeon graphics cards. The drivers come with updates to the Radeon Software interface, and the AMD Link remote-gameplay utility. Radeon Software now comes with an improved installer with installation presets that let you choose between a Full (typical) installation, with all software features installed; a Minimal installation with an interface that only has basic settings related to the display and GPU; and "driver-only" that only installs the display driver, and no additional software.

There are several new features introduced within Radeon Software. Vivid Gaming Display Color Enhancement is a new monitor color profile that enables a more "vivid" color palette that lets you liven up "color deficient" scenes. The interface lets you take control of protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia components of the color. The search bar that lets you dig through the hundreds of features, has been improved. There are many other minor UI improvements, such as stats in the Games tab, a toggle for the in-built web-browser, and global controls for the hotkeys.

ASUS Announces ROG Swift PG32UQ 32" 4K 144 Hz HDMI 2.1 IPS Gaming Monitor

The current watershed moment in graphics performance has everyone joining the Ultra HD party. The latest PC graphics cards make higher-refresh-rate 4K gaming easier than ever, and the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles finally support 4K graphics with high dynamic range (HDR) imagery and high refresh rates over the HDMI 2.1 interface. To match this new wealth of pixel-pushing power, we've created the ROG Swift PG32UQ, which we're unveiling at CES 2021.

The PG32UQ's 4K pixel array measures 32" across its diagonal, for a density of 138 PPI. That size strikes a great balance between a sharp picture and keeping text and UI elements readable without scaling. The gorgeous IPS panel has a gray-to-gray response time of just 1 ms. Those speedy pixels make for blur- and ghosting-free motion that's as clear as that of fast TN panels, but with the enhanced color reproduction and viewing angles of IPS.

MSI Announces Optix G242 eSports Monitor: 24" 1080p, IPS, 144 Hz, VRR, 250 nits

MSI today announced yet another addition to their gaming monitor staple in the form of the Optix G242.

A now "normal" 144 Hz refresh rate is served up in that package, and perhaps more interestingly, the panel displays up to 16.7 million colors covering a wide color gamut display coverage rated at 94.6% DCI-P3 and 127.7% sRGB. VRR is also supported for additional gaming capabilities, either in the form of FreeSync or NVIDIA's G-Sync Compatible branding.

The 250 nits maximum brightness are nothing to write home about; that said, the Optix G242 features MSI's "AntiFlickr" technology and an incorporated "Blue Light Reduction" filtering mode. Contrast is quoted at 1000:1. I/O is assured by 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI 1.4, and 1x Earphone jack. Body sizing is a beautiful (as all supposedly are) 540.2 mm width, 228.2 mm depth, 411.6 mm height, and 3.33 kg. No word on pricing or availability were available at time of writing.

LG Launches 38WN95C-W Monitor: 38" Nano IPS, QHD+, 144 Hz - 170 Hz, 1 ms, Adaptive-Sync, 2300R, VESA DisplayHDR 600

LG today launched their new 38WN95C-W monitor, right alongside a more barebones offering (38WN95C-G) and a gaming-oriented cousin, the 38WN95C-B. Differences are small between the three, so we'll get into the nitty-gritty with the 38WN95C-W. This monitor features a 38" Nano IPS panel with a quoted 1 ms response time, which offers what LG calls QHD+ (3840 x 1600) resolution and an up to 170 Hz refresh rate (via overclocking through the monitor's own OSD; the original, non-overclocked refresh rate stands at a still very respectable 144 Hz). The monitor supports Active-Sync technologies in the form of AMD's FreeSync and NVIDIA's G-Sync via the now ubiquitous "G-Sync Compatible" program, albeit with a VRR range set between 48 Hz and 144 Hz) with LFC (Low Framerate Compensation).

The 'G' model lacks the Thunderbolt 3 port and additional HDMI 2.0 port of this model. The 38WN95C-G's only difference to this monitor is the lack of the ThunderBolt port and only 1x HDMI 2.0. The gaming-centric version, the 38WN95C-B, further cuts the built-in speakers - but offers an RGB ring for added bling. The LG 38WN95C-W is already available for pre-order with prices starting at $1,599.

MSI Announces Optix MAG274R Gaming Monitor for E-Sports

MSI, the world's leading manufacturer for true gaming hardware, is proudly expanding the hardware possibilities for all gamers. This time, we are honored to introduce our latest IPS eSports Gaming Monitor: Optix MAG274R. Equipped with an IPS panel, a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a fast response time of 1 ms, Optix MAG274R will let you enjoy the best viewing experience and the smoothest gaming experience at the same time.

Why IPS? Compared to a traditional TN panel, IPS panels provide a wider viewing angle with minimum color shifts and an astonishing viewing experience. However, most gaming monitors are not equipped with IPS panels due to response time. For a fast response time equal to or less than 1 ms, you had to turn to TN or VA panel gaming monitors in the past. With the ever-changing nature of technology, fast response time and high-quality viewing experience are no longer mutually exclusive. Always improving, MSI will keep on challenging itself in the design of gaming monitors, and ensure that you are always ahead of your opponents.
