Philips has introduced two new monitors at CES, beginning with the 27" Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC. G-SYNC is an NVIDIA technology that matches a monitor's refresh rate to the connected computer's video card, improving vertical sync while minimizing any stuttering or input lag. The Gaming Monitor is capable of refresh rates up to 144Hz with a 5ms response time, and also offers a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, adjustable height, and wall-mounting support.
The second monitor is the 28-inch UltraClear Display
, a 4K-capable TN panel-based monitor with a color depth of 1.07 billion colors. The unit moreover has a multitude of connection options, including DisplayPort, VGA, DVI-D dual-link, and MHL-HDMI inputs, as well as two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, plus one fast-charging USB slot. Audio can be pumped out of two 3W internal speakers.
Another feature of the UCD is MultiView, which lets two devices share the same monitor for multitasking purposes. An adjustable base lets people lower the monitor to as low as desk level, and swivel, tilt, and rotate as necessary.
The UCD is due to ship sometime this spring for $1,200. The 27" Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC is due to arrive in the same timeframe for $649.
