Philips Unveils Its First G-SYNC Enabled Monitor
In many competitive FPS games, it is often all about speed and responsiveness. A few millisecond can mean the difference between getting the kill or getting killed. That is why NVIDIA has developed G-SYNC; a new technology that synchronizes display refresh rates to the PC’s GPU, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. This bodes well for gamers, as it can help them gain an edge compared to the competition.
Philips is now ready with its first monitor with built-in G-SYNC. The monitor, model name 272G5DYEB, is 27 inches diagonally and uses a TN display. It has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, 300cd/cm2 brightness and a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, and displays up to 16.7M colors. All of that is fairly standard, but what sets the monitor apart from some of the competition is its incorporation of G-SYNC along with a 144 Hz refresh rate and a 1 ms response time, which ensures that you will be having the newest frames on your screen as soon as they are rendered by the GPU. Chris Brown, TPV Global Product Marketing, puts it this way "This 27-inch Philips monitor is a perfect gaming partner, with G-SYNC technology bringing breakthrough display performance and giving major competitive edge".
