Every year, the Consumer Electronics Show features a massive amount of products slated for release during the year. The 2022 show revealed the latest PC monitors targeting better image quality, faster refresh rates, and features that help facilitate increasingly virtual workplaces.

There was many To see, so we’ve broken down seven of the most interesting monitors announced at CES 2022 below. We didn’t include any concept, version of gag, and no gimmick (OK, maybe a few gimmicks). Either way, none of these products should become vaporware..

Here’s a look at some of the more unique monitors set to release over the next 12 months.

When Nvidia announced new RTX 3000 series graphics cards at CES, the company also promised 27-inch 1440p monitors up to 360Hz to accommodate the new GPUs (today’s fastest monitors can do 360Hz). Hz but are limited to 1080p). Many brands announced 1440p 300Hz monitors at CES, but Asus was the only one to take 1440p up to 360Hz.

In its announcement, Asus said the ROG Swift 360 Hz PG27AQN is the company’s fastest monitor “in terms of real-world response time.” This means Asus’s monitor should have extremely few ghosting. Unfortunately, Asus has not confirmed an official response time specification (we’ve asked questions about this and will update this article if we have an answer). However, he detailed the new kind of IPS (in-plane switching) technology that he designed with gaming screen maker AUO in order to achieve its speed.

“Response time” is a measure of the time it takes for a monitor’s pixels to go from black to white and then back to black, which occurs when the screen rotates its liquid crystals to change the amount of light that is coming through. past. To achieve a faster response time on the PG27AQN, Asus made an IPS panel with liquid crystals carrying higher birefringence (essentially, refraction of light in two directions) and lower viscosity (or stickiness) to allow liquid crystal to twist quickly so that light can pass through.

And instead of having liquid crystals parallel to the polarizer as usual, the crystals are tilted slightly towards the polarizer, making them more efficient, Asus said.

The monitor also uses dual-layer (instead of single-layer) voltage training. Rather than twisting the liquid crystal starting at the upper left corner of the panel and working your way down to the lower right corner, the monitor twists the liquid crystal while working from the upper left and lower right corners simultaneously “for a more cohesive picture” , said Asus.

Asus told Ars Technica that the price and release date of the PG27AQN has yet to be determined.

It’s time for a higher resolution speed. While the PG27AQN brings 1440p resolution to its highest refresh rate, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 will do the same for 4K resolution. We’re not yet updating 8,294,400 pixels 360 times per second, but the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 achieves a respectable 240Hz.

The Odyssey Neo G8 is the first 4K monitor to claim a 240Hz refresh rate and apparently uses compression to do so, as the monitor only uses the HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. Additionally, the gaming screen claims a gray-to-gray (GtG) response time of 1ms.

If its premium resolution and speed aren’t enough, Samsung has also given the monitor the most extreme curve you can find in a monitor: 1000R.

Samsung told us it would share the price and the monitor’s release date “later this year.”

LG DualUp Monitor (28MQ780)

Most computer screens are wider than they are tall, but over the past couple of years, laptops have adopted screens that are a little taller than usual. LG took the big screen trend even further by announcing a 16:18 aspect ratio monitor.

The LG DualUp 27.6 inch monitor (28MQ780) is larger than any other consumer PC monitor. But it’s significantly closer to a square shape than the more traditional or ultra-wide 16: 9 monitor.

With a resolution of 2560 x 2880, the DualUp gives you the same pixel count as two 21.5-inch 16: 9 monitors, making it an option for high productivity and those who just want more room for them. long news feeds.

LG hasn’t provided a specific price or release date.
