Really serious about something? Then you need specialist hardware. That’s definitely true for PC gaming and it particularly applies to PC monitors. Of course, the more specialised your PC monitor, the more you may have to give up in general usage terms.Enter AOC’s latest 25-inch PC gaming monitor. More than just a generic gaming model, the new AOC G2590PX G2 has a laser-like focus on fast-paced action gaming and esports in particular. In fact, that ‘G2’ suffix refers to G2 Esports, a multi-team esports organisation based in Berlin that now works in partnership with AOC and uses AOC gaming displays at its training facilities.Anyway, the consequence of that gaming-centric focus is a basic form factor that won’t set your pants on fire, not in this age of uber-wide aspect ratios and ultra-high 4K-plus resolutions. We’re talking a modest 25-inch diagonal size and a mere 1080p or 1,920 by 1,080-pixel native resolution. Indeed, the G2590PX G2 … [Read more...] about AOC G2590PX G2 Signature Edition review

Monitor arms are great -- they provide more flexibility for the location and positioning of a display than you can get with a stand. But they're traditionally clunky, conspicuous and/or industrial looking. Samsung's taken its invisibility-is-golden, flush-against-the-wall TV design aesthetic and applied it to its new line of minimalist Space Monitors, which debuts with 27- and 32-inch models at CES 2019. There are tradeoffs for the beautification -- you can only raise and lower the display, not rotate horizontally, which means it needs to sit directly in front of you rather than off to the side. And while the marketing photos show it sans cables -- that's typical -- they will mar the austere emptiness of your desk. It also looks like it uses a proprietary cable with a dual-headed power and HDMI (v2.0), though that may just be what comes in the box; it also has a Mini Display DisplayPort (v 1.2) connector. But unlike a traditional stand, it can be lowered down to the level of … [Read more...] about Samsung’s Space monitors bring its minimalist TV aesthetic to your desk

Nvidia wants you to spend about the same as an entirely new computer on its latest top-of-the-line graphics card, the GTX 2080 Ti. You could get a great laptop or a very solid desktop for the same $1,200 price Nvidia’s new card commands. You could get a couple of PS4 Pros or Xbox Ones! You could get an iPhone X or a Samsung Note 9. Point is you could spend your $1,200 on a lot of different gadgets that do more than a graphics card—so how on earth can it be worth it? Nvidia’s last generation, the 10-series, came out about two years ago and is still available today, and its still plenty fast for most games. I say games and not things because unless you’re mining crypto you’re probably only in the market for an expensive graphics card so you can play games on your expensive computer. You don’t really need a pricey GPU for working in Photoshop or editing a film. GPUs are good at one thing—rendering 3D graphics, and most of us only need to render … [Read more...] about What on Earth Makes a $1,200 Nvidia 2080 Ti Graphics Card Worth It?
