First Nvidia G-Sync powered gaming monitors heading to UK
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.
