Philips has unveiled a new computer monitor called the 239C4QHWAB Miracast monitor. This display is able to stream content from your Android device in HD to the monitor with no other hardware needed. That means you can stream content from your tablet or smartphone to the monitor without needing a Chromecast or similar device.
Not all computer monitors are created equal. A cheap monitor might work for the person who only goes on Facebook and checks email occasionally. A better monitor is needed for gamers to get all the colors and graphics nuances that video games offer. People working in digital production of video or print media need even more performance from a monitor.
When it comes to working comfortably on a computer, people are willing to spend some big money for keyboards, mice, and other peripherals that are comfortable and easy to use. One of the things that many people want for more comfort is a stand to get the monitor of their computer up higher so they don't have to look down. Satechi has a new monitor stand that is called the F1 Smart Monitor Stand.
This week a number of early benchmark tests are appearing with clues as to the true (artificial benchmark) performance of the NVIDIA Tegra K1. This processor was introduced last week at CES 2014 with promise that it wasn't just a successor to the NVIDIA Tegra 4, it was a whole new skewed line of SoC, one capable of out-doing even last generation's biggest and best gaming consoles, like the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Now we're seeing some results that suggest the Tegra K1 works better than Apple's A7 chip and the NVIDIA Snapdragon 800 as well.
In addition to the NVIDIA G-SYNC-harboring 27-inch monitor the company rolled out on Monday, Philips has introduced the 28-inch UltraClear Display, a 4K Ultra HD resolution monitor for professionals in need of high accuracy, as well as those who want a display above and beyond the traditional FHD staple. The monitor will be available some time this spring for $1,119.99 USD.
It's nearly time for NVIDIA's G-Sync gaming monitor processor technology to hit the market - closer to the reveal of this technology than to the market, to be fair, but close nonetheless. What we're having a peek at this week is a collection of monitors that've already got their final bits and pieces in them, just a few of the collection of displays that'll be released later this year. BenQ, Philips, AOC, and ViewSonic have all brought their first models to CES 2014 and NVIDIA's press event.
PC gamers are on the receiving end of a new monitor ASUS has revealed at CES, the ROG SWIFT PG278Q monitor. According to the company, this is the first WQHD-resolution monitor that uses NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, and along with that comes a very high refresh rate and some other perks aimed just at gamers. We've got a run down of all the details for you after the jump.
When it comes to 4K monitors, the first thought many have is cost. With such a dense resolution and cutting edge technology, they usually cost quite a bit. Lenovo’s ThinkVision 4K monitor is a breath of fresh air, bringing an absolutely stunning display at a really reasonable price. We have had the monitor for a little while, and we must say, we’re impressed.
