Whether you’re looking for great new designs, great new panels or fast new technology, They Rarely disappoints for a gaming monitor. CES 2022 was remote for most of us, but that didn’t mean companies didn’t bring out the big guns for our virtual entertainment.

In non-product-specific monitor news, Samsung announced that it will be adding its HDR10 Plus technology for gaming. Like HDR10 Plus for TV, it is Samsung’s technology to use information provided by game designers to change the way HDR is rendered on a scene-by-scene or shot-by-shot basis rather than using a single curve for the entire game. Is. It is similar to Dolby Vision but is free to license.

The new QD-OLED monitor panel technology in the Alienware 34 is at the top of my list of interesting news.

Alienware 34 Gaming Monitor (AW3423DW)

Alienware’s 34-inch curved monitor is probably my favorite of the show. it uses Samsung’s new QD-OLED The panel, which combines the brilliant color rendition of Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology with the contrast, color accuracy and speed of OLED, for a display that promises to look beautiful and perform well. And unlike a lot of whizzy monitors announced at CES that ship later in the year, the Alienware is expected by March 29 (it will first ship in China on March 2 and expand to other regions in April). ). But we don’t have the price yet. The biggest downside is that it lacks an HDMI 2.1 connection, which makes it sub-optimal for connecting to consoles (you can use that, but you won’t find variable refresh rate support).


Gaming’s Ballet Dancer Samsung Odyssey Ark.

We got the least amount of information about Samsung’s minimalist gaming monitor, but its most prominent feature – aside from its sleek design – is that it’s 55-inches that you can rotate in portrait mode for a “cockpit-style” view. can. I’m not sold on the logistics of using a monitor that’s bigger (and I’ve tried) on a desktop, much less the use of rotating it. But if the design comes down to 49 inches, I’m there, provided it uses equally awesome panel technology like MicroLED, which we haven’t yet seen in desktop monitors or QD-OLEDs. And that it doesn’t cost $5,000 or ship many years from now.


Odyssey Neo G8, so bright

Samsung Odyssey G8 Neo QLED (G85NB)

It’s nowhere near as beautiful as the Odyssey Arc and not the first of its kind, but the 32-inch version of the 49-inch Odyssey G9 Neo QLED that was launched in July last year is still float-my-boat-worthy. Like the G9 Neo QLED, Samsung just released a teaser for the G8, with no price or ship date. But it has a similar high-contrast curved screen with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits in HDR, a 240Hz refresh rate and 1-millisecond gray-to-gray response time, as well as a similar design to the Odyssey G7 and G9 ( in white) and support for FreeSync Premium Pro and G-Sync.


ViewSonic’s Elite XG321UG has great specs and an unusual but nice stand design.

This performance is unique to me for a few reasons. Notable features are: a 32-inch HDR 4K displayHDR 1400 monitor with 1,152-zone mini LED backlight, 144Hz refresh rate, and Nvidia reflex latency analysis support, which hits almost all the right checkboxes (no HDMI 2.1, for one). At $2,500 it’s expensive, but on par with a high-end gaming monitor. Plus it gets bonus points for shipping it over the next few months. The second reason is the stand design, which not only looks better than most competitors (at least in my aesthetics), but it’s also got a flat base. I need every inch of desk space and hate stands that either take up too much, can’t comfortably accommodate hiding a keyboard on the base or you can’t stack things.


Razer Project Sofia has a desk on which you really don’t want to spill coffee.

From one of Razer’s concept shows, Project Sofia is like an all-in-one gaming PC/desk/living area. I just see it as a 65-inch monitor that you’ll regret buying after two years, or possibly the gaming equivalent of a jumpsuit.


Acer Predator CG48 “Desktop” Gaming Monitor

Monitors supporting HDMI 2.1 for use with game consoles as well as PCs, and those who do so by enabling the required features, are not yet fat on the ground. But we are starting to see a lot more of them, even if their characteristic status is unknown. The problem is finding the right size, and I don’t think it is 55 inches. Most models under 55 inches have IPS-based screens instead of OLED – OLED is great for gaming and has a lot more contrast than IPS. 48-inch models like the Predator CG48 or the Asus ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ announced at the show aren’t unique but unusual enough that they’re worth mentioning, but the 42-inch ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ is rare if not unique. And starts getting these hybrid PC/console displays into the area where they’re good for people who are really trying to save space by buying a dual-purpose monitor instead of a TV.


The fastest 1440p G-Sync Esports monitor is the Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN.

Nvidia G-Sync Sports Monitors

At the show, Nvidia launched its next-generation 1440p G-Sync esports standard with a reflex latency analyzer and 25-inch mode. It announced four debut models, including Viewsonic’s Elite XG271QG, AOC Aegon Pro AG274QGM, MSI MEG 271Q, all with 300Hz refresh rate, and the Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN. Normalizing a high-quality 1440p 27-inch display for esports is a great step up from 1080p and 25 inches. They all incorporate mini LED backlights, but AOC and MSI stand out because they’re both DisplayHDR certified with 576 zones for local dimming.
