Asus shows off 144 Hz gaming monitor Asus has unveiled the first 144 Hz gaming monitor, designed to improve 3D gaming performance.
The monitor, dubbed VG278H, is 27-inches, and will be the first with a panel enabling such a smooth frame rate.

Asus used a Twisted Nematic (TN) LCD panel with 1920x1080 pixel resolution and 2 ms (g2g) response time. On the 3D front, the monitor supports Nvidia's 3D Vision 2, although that will require a separate kit.

For ports, the monitor has HDMI, dual-link DVI, D-SUB VGA and 2x3Watt stereo speakers built-in including an audio jack for headphones.

There was no word on price.

Can't wait for the grand mal seizures to start reporting in. Both either from the rapid firing of images to the optical brain dispatches or the sticker price.

Sticker shock is what I'm thinking. However put a piece of fruit on it and the sticker shock would be be acceptable.

I look forward to when these become the standard for all monitors - not only for gaming, but for those of us who work with computers all day long. Staring at a 60 Hz 27" LCD Monitor for hours on end truly makes my eyes (and head) hurt. My vision gets blurry by the end of the day sometimes. The much higher refresh rate has been the one thing Ive missed about the big fat old CRTs - so much easier on the eyes!

Sorry, but "1920x1080" and "gaming monitor" shouldn't be used in the same sentence.

The movie studios are to blame for the 16:9 format and manufactures follow right along being able to save money by producing cheap panels while trying to sell them for inflated prices to the consumer.

These panels (16:9) are not pc friendly. For monitors, it's 16:10... but of course the younger generation doesn't know what they're missing, so naturally the masses clamor about how they just love their 16:9 panels.

Is that a fact? 120 - 144Hz, would be easier on the eyes? Mine are ok with my Dell U2410, which I believe is 60Hz. It games well, and Blu-ray is incredible. I mostly bought it for the IPS panel. I do a fair amount of photoshopping, and benefit from the nice color reproduction ;) Perhaps I should build a secondary system, using spare parts, and a better monitor? I have been considering 3D stuff!




To delete, or not to delete. THAT is the question!

Back in my day the fruit was always on the bottom. That was back even before all the Cy-lenol (cyanide in the Tylenol tablets - still to this day haven't caught that asshole) scare, when everything had to go to crazy hermetically sealed, 9 year trip to Venus kind of packaging. That & the grocer was kind enough to stack the tubs upright...
