Display specialist AOC announces the new addition to its 90 Series aimed at professionals. The 27" (68.6 cm) U2790PQU offers 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels) and a pixel density of 163 ppi, resulting in crisp images. The U2790PQU's IPS panel and 10-bit colour depth produce 1.07 billion colours, enabling subtle colour transitions. While the grey finish of its body and the 3-side frameless design make this monitor stand out in its class, its future-proof technical specifications, including the height-adjustable ergonomic stand and blue light reducing features, make the monitor a great choice for professionals and prosumers looking for a top-class solution.

Ultra HD, or simply 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels) is slowly but surely going to replace the current mainstream 1080p (Full HD) and 1440p (Quad HD) monitors. The U2790PQU is a monitor that will be especially appreciated by content creators, video editors, digital artists, but also people working with excel sheets and other information dense applications. The extra-sharpness and vivid details thanks to the 4K resolution, together with the colour accuracy and 10-bit colour depth of the U2790PQU's IPS panel are a perfect match for the kind of work done by professionals in these fields.

VESA Publishes DisplayPort 2.0 Standard, Enabling Support for Beyond-8K & Higher Refresh Rates

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) today announced that it has released version 2.0 of the DisplayPort (DP) audio/video standard. DP 2.0 is the first major update to the DisplayPort standard since March 2016, and provides up to a 3X increase in data bandwidth performance compared to the previous version of DisplayPort (DP 1.4a), as well as new capabilities to address the future performance requirements of traditional displays. These include beyond 8K resolutions, higher refresh rates and high dynamic range (HDR) support at higher resolutions, improved support for multiple display configurations, as well as improved user experience with augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) displays, including support for 4K-and-beyond VR resolutions.

The advantages of DP 2.0 are enjoyed across both the native DP connector as well as the USB Type-C connector, which carries the DP audio/video signal through DisplayPort Alt Mode. DP 2.0 is backward compatible with previous versions of DisplayPort and incorporates all of the key features of DP 1.4a, including support for visually lossless Display Stream Compression (DSC) with Forward Error Correction (FEC), HDR metadata transport, and other advanced features. The increased video bandwidth performance of DP 2.0 carried over the USB-C connector enables simultaneous higher-speed USB data transfer without compromising display performance. DP 2.0 leverages the Thunderbolt 3 physical interface (PHY) layer while maintaining the flexibility of DP protocol in order to boost the data bandwidth and promote convergence across industry-leading IO standards.

AMD Navi Radeon Display Engine and Multimedia Engine Detailed

Two of the often overlooked components of a new graphics architecture are the I/O and multimedia capabilities. With its Radeon RX 5700-series "Navi 10" graphics processor, AMD gave the two their first major update in over two years, with the new Radeon Display Engine, and Radeon Multimedia Engine. The Display Engine is a hardware component that handles the graphics card's physical display I/O. The Radeon Multimedia Engine is a set of fixed-function hardware that provides CODEC-specific acceleration to offload your CPU.

The Navi Radeon Display Engine features an updated DisplayPort 1.4 HDR implementation that's capable of handling 8K displays at 60 Hz with a single cable. It can also handle 4K UHD at 240 Hz with a single cable. These also include HDR and 10-bit color. It achieves this by implementing DSC 1.2a (Display Stream Compression). The display controller also supports 30 bpp internal color-depth. The HDMI implementation remains HDMI 2.0. The multi-plane overlay protocol (MPO) implementation now supports a low-power mode. This should, in theory, reduce the GPU's power draw when idling or playing back video.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, RX 5700 & Navi 10 GPU Chip Pictured Up Close

Here are some of the first clear pictures of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 AMD launched on Monday. The two cards are based on the new 7 nm "Navi 10" silicon that implements AMD's latest RDNA architecture. The reference-design RX 5700 XT sports a brand new premium design with a ridged metal cooler shroud studded with an illuminated Radeon logo on top, a second logo at its front face, and a matching back-plate. Underneath is an aluminium fin-channel heatsink with a vapor-chamber base-plate that pulls heat from the GPU, memory, and VRM. A lateral-flow blower ventilates the heatsink, pushing hot air out of the case. Power is drawn from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Outputs include three DisplayPort and one HDMI.

The Radeon RX 5700 looks a little less premium, and its cooler design greatly resembles the "metal" reference cooler of the RX Vega 64. This is possibly because reference RX 5700 will not make it to the market unlike reference RX 5700 XT, and will instead be an AIB partner-driven launch, with all cards being custom-design. AMD also provided images of the RX 5700 XT in a "teardown" shot, which reveals the vapor-chamber based heatsink, the lateral blower, and more importantly, the reference-design PCB with its 7-phase VRM.
More pictures follow.

ASUS Announces Mini-LED Powered ROG Swift PG27UQX G-Sync Ultimate Monitor

ASUS in partnership with NVIDIA announced at COMPUTEX 2019 their first Mini-LED powered PC monitor, which promises to bring the dimming zone game up to an unprecedented level - at least, on IPS technology. The usage of Mini-LED as lighting source for the ROG Swift PG27UQX means that there are many more areas that can be dimmed and brightened according to the displayed content: 576 of them, really, with each being comprised of mini LEDs that are a mere 200-300 micrometers in size.

The ROG Swift PG27UQX features a 27" panel with HDR support (HDR 1000 certification with up to 1,000 nits brightness). It's overclockable to a 144 Hz refresh rate, and color-wise offers DCI-P3 97% and Adobe RGB with quantum-dot technology for 99% coverage. ASUS says that the local dimming capabilities also allow for lower energy consumption (which does make sense). Connector-wise, we're looking at DisplayPort v1.4, HDMI (v2.0), 3x USB 3.0 and 1x 3.5 mm earphone jack. Being a G-Sync Ultimate panel, it features NVIDIA's latest G-Sync processor, which should bringing pricing to even higher levels than you are already expecting.

ASUS Announces 240 Hz Portable ROG Monitor

With an increasing number of "gamers on the go" today, we are getting more gaming products tailored specifically to them. Laptops, portable keyboards, and even portable monitors. Often those monitors aren't very good. They either lack quality or are too small to do anything serious with them. However, ASUS wanted to change that with their launch of a new ROG portable monitor.

At Computex, ASUS has announced a new addition to its portable monitor family, this time under their famous ROG branding. The new ROG Strix XG17, as it is called, appears to be a dream come true for every gamer on the go. It features a 1080p 240 Hz display packed in a 17-inch body made to fit in any bag that is able to carry a 17-inch laptop. It incorporates adaptive sync technology so you will not have to worry about torn frames. The response time is pretty low as well at only 3 ms. You can drive it from any micro HDMI or USB-C DisplayPort cable. It can be powered from the same USB-C DisplayPort cable you use for video, or from the internal battery which is able to handle up to three hours of usage on its own. No information yet on retain availability or pricing, but we look forward to checking it out more sooner than later.

AMD "Navi" Graphics Card PCB Pictured, uses GDDR6

Pictures of an upcoming AMD Radeon "Navi" graphics card bare PCB made it to the web over the weekend. The picture reveals a fairly long (over 25 cm) board with AMD markings, and a layout that doesn't match with any reference-design PCB AMD launched so far. At the heart of the PCB is a large ASIC pad that appears to be within 5 percent of the size of a "Polaris10" chip. The ASIC is surrounded by eight GDDR6 memory pads. We could guess they're GDDR6 looking at the rectangularity of their pin-layout compared to GDDR5.

The PCB has provision for up to two 8-pin PCIe power inputs, and an 8+1 phase VRM that uses premium components such as rectangular tantalum capacitors, DrMOS, and a high-end VRM controller chip. There's also provision for dual-BIOS. The display I/O completely does away with DVI provisioning, and only includes the likes of DisplayPort, HDMI, and even USB-C based outputs such as VirtualLink. The fan header looks complex, probably offering individual fan-speed control for the card's multi-fan cooling solution that could resemble that of the Radeon VII. Looking purely at the feature-set on offer, and the fact that "Navi" will be more advanced than "Vega 2.0," we expect this card to be fairly powerful, going after the likes of NVIDIA's RTX 2070 and RTX 2060. AMD is expected to unveil this card at the 2019 Computex, this June.

Acer Unveils Predator CG437KP monitor: 43" VA, 4K, 144 Hz, Adaptive Sync, 1000 nits

Acer at a special event unveiled their upcoming monitor that blurs the line between a television and a PC monitor. The Predator CG437KP makes use of a 43" VA panel (90% DCI-P3 coverage) with a 4K resolution. As if the size wasn't an impressive spec alone, Acer really have gone out of their way to make this a veritable Predator monitor, with 144 Hz refresh rates (with Adaptive Sync support), as well as a maximum 1000 nits brightness, which should bring up to HDR 1000 certification.

I/O stands at 3x HDMI (likely to support all of those consoles users that are looking at this diagonal size might have), 1x DisplayPort for actual Active Sync users, and 1x USB 3.1-C. There's even a remote control. Pricing-wise, it's expected the Predator CG437KP will be available for €1,499.

Philips Announces the Brilliance 329P9H Monitor: 32" 4K, IPS, 60 Hz, 5 ms, 350 nits

Phillips announced the latest in their Brilliance line of PC monitors. The 329P9H monitor features a 31.5" diagonal with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. The panel is of the IPS type, and a fairly basic one at that when it comes to features gamers expect: a 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response times aren't the most attractive for serious gaming - but then again, this monitor isn't really being marketed for serious gaming. And there's life in the PC world besides that one.

For those users that still think this monitor is interesting, the anti-glare coating and 350 nits of brightness should be interesting propositions for a more work-inspired usage scenario. The 178º angle of view and 1.07 billion colors join a wider than usual color gamut, covering 108% of the sRGB, 90% of the NTSC CIE1976, or 87% of the Adobe RGB color spaces to serve creative professionals' (or just color-correct amateurs) a precise environment. The Brilliance 329P9H also ships factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. Height, tilt, and swivel are available, as well as a 90 degree rotation capability. I/O stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2 input, 1x DisplayPort 1.2 output, 2x HDMI 2.0a, 1x USB Type-C (with DP 1.2, 65 W PD, data), as well as a 4-port USB 3.0 hub (one supports fast charging) and one Ethernet, GbE port. The recommended price for the Philips 329PH9 stands at £809, so MSRP in the US should land around the $899 mark.

ASUS Outs ROG Swift PG278QE: 27-inch WQHD with 165Hz

ASUS today rolled out the ROG Swift PG278QE, a 27-inch planar gaming monitor with stellar gaming-grade specifications. To begin with, you get WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution, with 165 Hz refresh-rate, 1 ms (GTG) response time, and support for NVIDIA G-Sync. It also packs TÜV Rheinland-certified blue light reduction technology that reduces eye fatigue from extended gameplay sessions. ASUS did not mention panel type, however, looking at its 170°/160° (H/V) viewing-angles, we guess it could be TN-film based. Inputs include DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Shuttle Unveils XPC DH370 Mini-PC for 6-core 8th Gen Intel Processors

The 1.3-litre PCs of the XPC slim model series are getting a facelift - the DH370 sports a new chassis design which accommodates Intel processors of the 8th generation for socket LGA1151v2, relies on the faster H370 chipset and offers a total of four USB 3.1 ports with up to 10 GBit/s. With the DH370, Intel's H370 chipset makes its debut in Shuttle's range of 1.3-litre PCs. These not only support Intel processors of the "Coffee Lake" generation with up to 65 Watt TDP and up to 32 GB of DDR4 SO-DIMM memory, it is also possible to control three monitors at once in 4K resolution. An HDMI 2.0b and two DisplayPort 1.2 ports are available to facilitate this. If required, one analog VGA port can be provided optionally. Three of the four monitor ports could then be used simultaneously.

"With these technical specs on paper, the DH370 now bears the title of the XPC model with the highest performance per cubic centimetre," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The new chassis design sets the appropriate tone." Despite its compact dimensions of just 19 x 16.5 x 4.3 cm (DWH), there is space for a 2.5-inch drive (HDD/SSD) and an M.2 NVMe SSD. Another M.2 slot in 2230 format can be fitted with a WLAN module, for example. The Shuttle WLN-M is the appropriate accessory here. Two antennas guarantee optimum reception quality.

GIGABYTE Readies Out GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White

GIGABYTE is readying the GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White graphics card (GV-N2060GAMINGOC WHITE-6GC). A variant of the RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro, the card features a white cooler shroud with chrome inserts, and an all-white metal back-plate. Contrasting the white is matte-black fan impellers capped with chrome hub stickers, and a black PCB that's carried over from the original.

The cooling solution features three aluminium fin-stacks arranged along four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU at the aluminium base. Heat drawn from the memory and VRM are transferred to this base by a secondary aluminium plate. Three 90 mm fans spinning in alternate directions (albeit same airflow direction), ventilate the heatsink. The card features idle fan-stop, which spools down the fans below a load/temperature threshold. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPort and an HDMI 2.0. The card features GIGABYTE's highest factory-overclock for the RTX 2060, with 1830 MHz GPU Boost, although the memory frequency is untouched. The RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White could feature a minor $10-20 premium over the $379 MSRP of the original.

Philips Announces the 241B8QJEB Monitor: IPS, 1080p, Made of 85% Recycled Materials

Philips, via its MMD brand license partner, today announced the launch of the basic, cost-effective 241B8QJEB monitor. The 241B8QJEB is a no-frills, basic monitor for your office use, and would be ideal as a second or third monitor in a non-gaming environment - though of course it would also work for gaming on a budget, though there are many better options for that particular use case. The pricing of £159 goes hand in hand with the 1080p panel, which fogoes the cheaper TN type for the more image-quality-friendly IPS.

The Phlipos 241B8QJEB is an environment-friendly monitor, with 85% of the materials used in its construction being recycled, thus reducing its footprint in the environment. LowBlue Mode, Flicker-free, and the SmartErgoBase provide ease-of-use specs that can be taken advantage of by users. Connectors include VGA, DVI-D, DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, and USB 3.0 Super Speed technology.

GIGABYTE to Introduce Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 2070 Graphics Card

Following MSI, which has already introduced its 2070 Aero Mini-ITX graphics card, GIGABYTE is looking to be the next vendor to introduce such a form-factor graphics card. Being Mini-ITX, the PCB real-estate is small, hence the option for a single-fan cooling solution. And of course, since a smaller cooling system and PCB imply more concentrated heat output, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 Mini-ITX will ship with stock clocks and no factory overclocking (which means 1410 base and 1620 MHz boost clocks).

Connectivity-wise, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 Mini-ITX features five display connectors: 3x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0b and 1x VirtualLink, which all fit in due to the dual-slot design of the graphics card. Pricing is unknown for now.

MSI Intros Oculux NXG251R G-Sync Gaming Monitor

MSI today introduced the Oculux NXG251R, an ultra-fast 24.5-inch gaming-grade monitor. If you can live with its Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution and TN-film type panel, on offer is 240 Hz maximum refresh-rate, response times as low as 1 ms (GTG), and support for NVIDIA G-Sync technology. There are also RGB LED ornaments behind the monitor, which can be controlled via MSI Mystic Light software, which can work as an ambient light, or however you want them to. The monitor features thin top and side bezels, with a faux brushed-metal bottom bezel. Other vital display specs include 170°/160° H/V viewing angles, and 1000:1 static contrast ratio with DCR. Inputs include DisplayPort 1.2 (needed for G-Sync), and HDMI 1.4. A 3-port USB 3.1 hub makes for the rest of it. The company didn't reveal pricing.

The New 32-inch ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQR Features 1440p, 144 Hz, and FreeSync 2 HDR

ASUS has a new premium display about to be released: the 32-inch ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQR is already listed on its website, and it is an evolution of its existing ROG Strix XG32VQ. Both share 1440p resolution, VA panel, 4ms grey-to-grey response time and 1800mm curvature. The difference between both is the HDR support: the new XG32VQR has both DisplayHDR 400 and FreeSync 2 HDR certifications. The latter offers improvements in usability but also in gaming scenarios that are not covered in the VESA DisplayHDR specifications.

The peak brightness of the new monitor also goes further than its predecessor and goes from 300 to 450 nits. The display has support for a range of FreeSync refresh rates ranging from 48 to 144 Hz, which allow it to work seamlessly with Low Framerate Compensation (LFC) technology from AMD. Company spokepersons clarified a few weeks ago the confusion with the FreeSync 2 certification, and explained that "it is possible for a display to meet the FreeSync 2 HDR requirements but fail the DisplayHDR 600 minimums. Such a display may have the DisplayHDR 400 logo and the FreeSync 2 HDR logo, but it would be exceeding the minimum requirements of DisplayHDR 400".

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.01 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA today released the latest version of its GeForce software suite. Version 417.01 WHQL drivers come game-ready optimization for "Darksiders III." The drivers also add SLI profiles for "Artifact." The drivers also address a number of bugs, including refresh-rates above 30 Hz not being applicable on certain 4K Ultra HD monitors (provided hardware requirements such as DisplayPort HBR2 or HDMI 2.0 or greater are met). The drivers also fix Frame Rate Limiter 2 not functioning in some cases. Also addressed is an "Event ID 14" error message when CSM is disabled in the UEFI setup program, G-Sync not disengaging after exiting a game, and incomplete Ansel images appearing when resolution is set 30X or higher.

Windows 10 Oct 2018 Update Process Runs Aground with Certain Intel Processors, Fix Released

Microsoft earlier this week released Windows 10 October 2018 (version 1809) update. You can either get it through Windows Update, and install it leaving your personal files and settings largely unchanged, or perform a clean install by making yourself an install media using Microsoft's Media Creation Tool. PC Watch noticed something curious about getting the new Windows version through Windows Update on their notebook. The process was sapping too much power from the battery, and the update process is interrupted by an incompatible driver dialog (screenshot below).

Intel processors running with Gen 9.5 iGPUs enabled (that's 6th generation "Skylake" or later), expose an integrated audio controller to the operating system. This controller is responsible for digital audio output through the iGPU's HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, and is similar to the one NVIDIA and AMD integrate with their discrete GPUs. Users with driver version 10.25.0.3 or older for this controller, could run into problems when Windows Update is re-loading the drivers as part of the upgrade process. Intel has since released driver version 10.25.0.10 part of the latest Graphics Drivers 25.20.100.6323. If you're still on Windows 10 version 1803 and use your iGPU, it's recommended that you update your Intel graphics drivers before initiating Windows Update to version 1809.

Intel Gen11 "Ice Lake" iGPU Supports DisplayPort 1.4a and DSC Enabling 5K and 8K

Intel processor integrated graphics will get its first major hardware update in 4 years since Gen 9.5 "Skylake," with the introduction of the Gen11 architecture that debuts with the company's "Ice lake" processors. The company confirmed in an XDC 2018 conference presentation that the iGPU will support DisplayPort 1.4a along with VESA DSC (display stream compression), enabling it to support display resolutions as high as 5K (5120 x 2880 pixels) with 120 Hz refresh-rate.

Without DSC, 5K-120 Hz requires 42.4 Gbps of bandwidth (not counting interconnect and protocol overheads), which even DisplayPort with HBR3 cannot provide, as it caps out at 32.4 Gbps. DSC offers "visually lossless" compression of the 5K-120 display stream down to roughly 14 Gbps, which can be comfortably handled by DisplayPort 1.4a. 8K (8192 x 4320 pixels) at 60 Hz also becomes possible. Merely supporting these new high resolutions doesn't imply Gen11 iGPUs can game at those resolutions. Support for them is necessitated by rapid increases in resolutions (pixel densities) and refresh-rates of high-end notebooks and ultra-portable devices.
