NVIDIA Announces New G-SYNC Esports Displays
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES)—In the world of competitive gaming, where mere milliseconds can make the difference between victory and defeat, NVIDIA today unveiled new G-SYNC® displays with a 360Hz refresh rate, providing esports enthusiasts and competitive gamers with the fastest gaming displays ever made. At 360Hz, game frames are displayed once every 2.8ms—up to 6X faster than traditional gaming displays and TVs.
NVIDIA and ASUS are showcasing the world’s first G-SYNC 360Hz display--the ASUS ROG Swift 360--at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The display, which will be available later this year, pairs perfectly with GeForce® RTX®, the world’s fastest gaming GPUs, to deliver the absolute best competitive gaming experience.
Rapid Rise in Esports Participants and Tournament Prizing The esports and competitive gaming communities continue to expand at a phenomenal rate. More than 60% of GeForce gamers worldwide play competitive games every month and $211M was awarded(1) as esports prize money in 2019, representing a 29% jump from the previous year. Esports viewership has skyrocketed as well, with more than 450M gamers tuning in to watch competitive tournaments played in real time(2).
NVIDIA G-SYNC--Driving Innovation and Advancing GamingFirst introduced in 2013, NVIDIA G-SYNC is best known for its innovative Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology that eliminates tearing by synchronizing the refresh rate of the display with the GPU’s frame rate. Since then, G-SYNC processors have added new display technologies to accelerate esports panels, including dynamic overdrive to enhance player perception, custom-tuned firmware to improve image quality for better target acquisition, and now 360Hz refresh rates for rapid reaction time. While esports pros previously accepted frame tearing on their display to avoid waiting for the next frame to update, with G-SYNC’s 360Hz and VRR technologies, frames now refresh in less than 3ms, so esports pros can get both tear-free frames and incredibly low latency.
Designed for Esports Pros—the ASUS ROG Swift 360Developed in conjunction with NVIDIA, the ASUS ROG Swift 360 is specifically designed for esports competitions and features a 24.5 inch form factor to keep every pixel of action in the field of view. The ASUS ROG Swift 360 features ASUS’s new sleek ROG finish that feels at home on the grand stage at any esports event as well as:
-- Blistering Fast Refresh Rate:360Hz delivers crystal clear visuals, extremely low system latency for faster reaction times, and the smoothest motion to keep pros on target. -- Designed for Esports:Play how the pros do and never miss a critical moment with the highest performance 24.5 inch Full HD display. -- Superior Clarity: No distracting tearing, stuttering, flicker, or artifacts with NVIDIA G-SYNC VRR technology. -- Quality Certified by NVIDIA:All G-SYNC certified displays undergo a rigorous validation process and are subjected to 300 image quality tests to ensure they deliver consistent quality and maximum performance.
NVIDIA will be demonstrating the new 360Hz G-SYNC display at its press suite at the Wynn hotel during CES this week, featuring a set of esports demos that show how 360Hz improves gamer’s performance in target acquisition, aiming, and perception.
