Mass Effect Andromeda
Finally, in conjunction with our friends at BioWare, we also showcased never-before-seen exclusive gameplay footage from Mass Effect Andromeda.
G-SYNC HDR – Making Games Look Even Better
Also new at CES, but not covered tonight, is the unveiling of the world’s first G-SYNC High Dynamic Range (HDR) PC gaming monitors featuring 4K panels running at 144Hz, which of course also included G-SYNC’s variable refresh rate technology.
These new G-SYNC HDR monitors have higher peak brightness for stunning, vivid visuals with bold saturated colors; very high contrast for richer, more natural dark scenes; and a wide gamut of colors close to the DCI-P3 cinema standard.
In short, they create more-realistic scenes that better match reality. And by combining those enhancements with HDR programming in games such as Mass Effect Andromeda and Shadow Warrior 2, G-SYNC HDR delivers the next revolution of image quality, leaving you slack-jawed and speechless, just as G-SYNC did the first time you experienced its silky-smooth performance.
On display at our gaming suite and booth, we have:
- ● World’s first 4K (3840 x 2160), 144Hz, G-SYNC HDR gaming monitors
- ● 2 models: Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ and Acer Predator XB272-HDR available in Q2.
- ● Monitors certified by NVIDIA and fully integrated into GeForce Platform for the best end-to-end gaming experience
- ● Hallmark G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology for tear-free, smooth and responsive gameplay
