There was rather a lot to see, so we have damaged down seven of probably the most attention-grabbing screens introduced at CES 2022 under. We have included no ideas, no gag releases, and no gimmicks (OK, possibly a number of gimmicks).

When Nvidia introduced new RTX 3000-series graphics playing cards at CES, the corporate additionally promised 27-inch 1440p screens that might hit 360 Hz to accommodate the brand new GPUs (at this time’s quickest screens can do 360 Hz however are restricted to 1080p). Quite a few manufacturers introduced 1440p 300 Hz screens at CES, however Asus was the one one to take 1440p as much as 360 Hz.

In its announcement, Asus mentioned the ROG Swift 360 Hz PG27AQN is the quickest monitor the corporate has ever made “when it comes to response time in real-world use.” Meaning Asus’ monitor ought to have extraordinarily little ghosting. Sadly, Asus did not verify an official response time spec (we have requested about that and can replace this text if we hear again). Nonetheless, it did element the brand new sort of IPS (in-plane switching) expertise it made with gaming show producer AUO with a purpose to obtain its pace.

“Response time” measures how lengthy it takes for a monitor’s pixels to show from black to white after which black once more, which occurs when the show turns its liquid crystals to alter the quantity of sunshine coming by way of. To get a quicker response time on the PG27AQN, Asus made an IPS panel with liquid crystals carrying increased birefringence (mainly, gentle refraction in two instructions) and decrease viscosity (or stickiness) to permit the liquid crystals to twist quickly so gentle can move by way of.

And as a substitute of getting liquid crystals which are parallel to the polarizer as ordinary, the crystals are barely angled towards the polarizer, making them extra environment friendly, Asus mentioned.

The monitor additionally makes use of a dual-layer (as a substitute of a single-layer) voltage drive. Moderately than twisting liquid crystals by ranging from the upper-left nook of the panel and dealing all the way down to the bottom-right nook, the monitor twists liquid crystals by working from the upper-left and bottom-right corners concurrently “for a smoother, extra constant picture,” Asus mentioned.

Asus advised Ars Technica that the value and launch date for the PG27AQN continues to be to be decided.

Time for extra high-resolution pace. Whereas the PG27AQN brings 1440p decision to its highest refresh price, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 will do the identical for 4K decision. We’re not but updating 8,294,400 pixels 360 occasions per second, however the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 does hit a decent 240 Hz.

The Odyssey Neo G8 is the primary 4K monitor to assert a 240 Hz refresh price and apparently makes use of compression to do it, because the monitor makes use of solely HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. Moreover, the gaming show claims a 1 ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time.

If its premium decision and pace aren’t sufficient, Samsung additionally gave the monitor probably the most excessive curve you’ll find in a monitor— 1000R.

Samsung advised us it might share the monitor’s worth and launch date “later this yr.”

The 27.6-inch LG DualUp Monitor (28MQ780) is taller than every other shopper PC monitor. However it’s notably nearer to a sq. form than the extra conventional 16:9 monitor or an ultra-wide one.

With a 2560 x 2880 decision, the DualUp offers you a similar variety of pixels as two 21.5-inch 16:9 screens, making it an possibility for heavy productiveness and those that simply need extra space for lengthy newsfeeds.
