New gaming monitors designed for long-term play

LED and gaming monitor vendor BenQ America Corp. unveiled two new gaming monitors this week at the Consumer Electronics Showcase (CES) in Las Vegas.

The two new monitors – the 24” XL2420G and 27” XL2720G – feature Nvidia’s G-Sync technology and, according to the vendor, eliminate performance issues related to image tearing, stuttering, and latency to provide smooth, fast-action play. They’re also equipped with BenQ’s RevolutionEyes technology for greater comfort 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.”

According to BenQ, the new monitors feature add three new G-Sync gaming modes for gamers to choose from: 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. They’re also equipped with Low Blue Light technology, which is designed to manage the exposure of blue spectrum light to help gamers protect their eyes during extended periods.

The new displays should ship in Q1 2014.
