First Nvidia G-Sync powered gaming monitors heading to UK

nvidia g-syncThe first monitor to include Nvidia’s G-Sync display technology as standard is due to hit UK shelves within the next few weeks.

The AOC g2460Pg is being touted by the company as being the first monitor to integrate Nvidia’s G-Sync technology into its design, rather than requiring a retrofitted kit.

AOC said that the £359 24-inch display was due to arrive “within the next two to three weeks”, and will debut at PCR’s Boot Camp event on May 21st.

Nvidia G-Sync synchronises display refresh rates to the render rate of the GPU (graphics processing unit) in a computer equipped with an Nvidia GeForce GX graphics card which supports the technology.

The announcement comes as distributor VIP Computers announced its intention to “lead the market on G-Sync and 4K”, in becoming the first UK distributor to stock the Palit 6GB GTX 780 Jetstream graphics card, which is designed to support G-Sync and 4K displays.

“Nvidia G-Sync monitors are a game-changer, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else,” said Matt Wright, consumer sales manager of Northern European distribution at Nvidia.

“Once you’ve used a G-Sync monitor in conjunction with a fast GeForce GTX GPU, you’ll never want to use a ‘normal’ monitor again.”

Well, after opting for a GTX 780 in my new gaming PC, I would certainly like to take one of these monitors for a test run.
