Viewsonic showcased three displays at CES 2016. The most interesting one was the Viewsonic XG2703-GS, a 165Hz WQHD IPS gaming monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC support. You can read our article about that gaming monitor here. Furthermore, the Viewsonic XG2401 was revealed.
The specifications are not particularly new, as there are plenty of these monitors around, but the addition of FreeSync support makes it stand out from older competitors with other similar specifications. That and the quality of this monitor, which seems to be higher than most of the other similar choices.
The Viewsonic XG2401 is, as the name suggests, a 24-inch monitor – a gaming monitor to be precise. Only 23.6-inch is viewable, though. The resolution of this monitor is 1920 x 1080, commonly referred to as Full HD resolution – a popular choice among gamers in the past years. The 144Hz refresh rate that this gaming monitor offers is what truly makes it a gaming monitor in 2016. That and the support for AMD FreeSync, of course, which eliminates screen tearing and stuttering, providing a crisp and clear fluid gameplay that you have not experienced before.
The blazingly fast 1ms response time ensures that you will not notice any ghosting, even in the most action-packed sequences. For the most optimal speed and performance, you can enable the SmartSync technology, which automatically selects the best refresh rate and response time, and the lowest possible input lag you can get in FPS games. The Game Mode feature will optimize the visuals for RT, MOBA and FPS games. The Viewsonic XG2401 also offers a black stabilization function, which will help you target enemies lurking in the dark, all while the monitor maintains rich colors and a brilliant contrast ratio, as per the product description.
The ergonomic stand allows you to tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjust the monitor. The monitor has HDMi and DisplayPort input connectors, and an integrated headphone hook and cable management functionality as well. All these features makes this an ideal monitor for gaming and entertainment purposes.
The price of the Viewsonic XG2401 is currently around $260, which is very competitively priced. The monitor is already released and can be purchased online by clicking on the link below.
