LG are soon to release a new31.5″ sized model in their range with a 4K resolution VA technology panel. The screen has a 3840 x 2160 resolution for high detail images but also has a range of features and specs to meet modern gaming and HDR requirements. The 32UL750 has support for AMD FreeSync, although does only have a 60Hz maximum refresh rate and oddly according to the LG spec page this appears to only be available over HDMI. We’re not really sure why not over DP. It also carries the VESA Display HDR 600 certification for a moderate level of HDR performance.
There hasn’t been much fuss made by Acer about this new display, which appears to be an update to the previous Predator XR342CK. The new XR342CKP offers an increased native refresh rate compared with the old model, boosting it from 75Hz to 100Hz now. That seems to be the main change with the P model, as it remains similar in other specs and features.

Acer are soon to release three new 27″ models in their ‘Nitro’ gaming lineup, all featuring 2560 x 1440 resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. There is not a lot of official information about these yet, but the new models are the Nitro XV272U (with IPS-type technology panel), Nitro VG271U (also with IPS-type technology) and the Nitro XF272U (with TN Film technology panel). All of these models feature a new wide gamut backlight offering coverage of 95% (for the IPS models) and 90% DCI-P3 (for the TN Film model), boosting them beyond the typical sRGB offerings currently available in the market in this area.
BenQ have recently released a new 27″ monitor in their Designer range, the PD2700U. The display is aimed at professional users, designers, CAD/CAM work and colour critical work.
The 27″ IPS-type panel has an Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution for high levels of detail. There is reference grade colour performance offered by the screen with 10-bit colour depth support, 100% sRGB gamut and a range of preset modes for different applications including CAD/CAM, animation mode and darkroom mode. Factory calibration is included although there’s no talk of hardware calibration.
Asus this week showcased a new monitor in their popular ROG Strix gaming lineup. The new ROG Strix XG49VQ is a massive 49″ in size with a double Full HD resolution of 3840 x 1080, 32:9 aspect ratio and 1800R curve. Being aimed at gamers the screen of course supports a high refresh rate, in this case 144Hz. While the screen doesn’t pack the high resolution of some other recently announced 49″ screens like the Dell U4919DW for instance (5120 x 1440, limited to 60Hz though) it does offer that all important higher refresh rate for gaming. Also keep in mind that powering a screen at this lower resolution at 144Hz should be a lot easier on your system than trying to power the higher res.
The BenQ PD3220U is the follow up to their previous PD3200U display, offering a fresh design and some new features.

The PD3220U is 31.5″ in size and features a 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolution IPS-type panel. Continue reading “BenQ PD3220U for Designers and Colour Critical Work”
