Many of you saw the video recap of Nvidia's new G-SYNC techology and how it is supposed to work. You also noticed that in order for the system to work, your monitor has to support it with proprietary hardware. Philips looks to be one of the first to provide you with one of the first G-Sync Gaming Monitors in the 27" Philips 272G5DYEB.
The monitor has pretty good specs. It's got a 1920 x 1080 display with 5 ms standard response time, 300 cd/m² illumination, and four plains of adjustment. If they left it at that, this would only be a very average monitor. However, when you switch on the Nvidia G-SYNC technology, that's when the magic happens. Then you get the 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms OD response time. To achieve this, the monitor does only support DisplayPort as an input so your NVIDIA graphics card must have one.
In combination with Nvidia G-SYNC, this is supposed to completely eliminate lag, stutter, and graphical tearing in-game. It is basically V-Sync on steroids and without the input lag so you can experience every game in full glory without sacrificing any image quality. The Philips G-SYNC monitor will be available this Spring for an MSRP of $649.
Now if only they could make the bezel a lot thinner, it'd be perfect. Full press release below.
