Nvidia confirm 27- and 34-inch G-Sync HDR on sale Q1 and Q2 respectively

Nvidia have confirmed to us that the 27- and 34-inch G-Sync HDR gaming monitors are now set to all be launched by the end of Q2 this year. So, by the time Computex rolls around in the summer we ought to have more options of HDR screens than HDR-compatible games to play on them. Good times.

 

I checked out all three of Nvidia’s 65-inch Big Format Gaming Displays yesterday, and yes they are for sure big and f-ing bright. But probably also pretty unrealistic in terms of a gaming monitor that most of us would actually use in our homes. Or even be able to afford. The 27-inch and 34-inch G-Sync HDR panels are still pretty sizeable but more akin to the kinds of screens we can comfortable fit on our desktops.

The 27-inch G-Sync HDR panels shown off at CES last year are scheduled to launch in Q1, while the glorious 34-inch versions we saw in the summer at Computex will hit the shelves in Q2.

Nvidia G-Sync HDR ultrawide

AU Optronics were expected to go into production with the necessary HDR panels at the tail end of 2017, with full scale production starting in December. That would chime well with the initial Q1 release.

Both of Asus’ 27- and 34-inch G-Sync HDR displays were on show in the ROG booth at CES this year, though neither are ready for sale yet as they’re still waiting on full authorisation by the FCC. Incidentally the FCC are the reason that Nvidia can’t call their big fragging gaming displays TVs. Because they don’t actually contain tuners they can’t be called TVs. Who even uses tuners these days? They’re 65-inches, they’re not monitors, they’re TVs.

ASUS ProArt PQ22UC

What genuinely is a monitor is Asus’ OLED PQ22UC. It’s the skinniest I’ve ever seen thanks to the fact the self-emissive panel technology doesn’t need any backlighting. Sadly it’s only a 21.6-inch screen with a native 4K resolution. It’ll be beautiful for image manipulation pros, but I’d rather have a larger OLED with gaming response times. You know, maybe even up to 65-inches...
