ViewSonic has announced a giant new gaming monitor dubbed as the ViewSonic XG3540C. The display features the UltraWide QHD resolution, although not the standard 3440×1440 but a higher 3840×1440 – unless ViewSonic made a typo in the press release.
The 35-inch ultra-wide gaming monitor is also 1800R curved in order to increase the immersion into gaming while the 100Hz refresh rate and the quick 4ms response time speed promise responsive and smooth gameplay.
Just like the rest of ViewSonic gaming monitors, the XG3540C 100Hz display offers ‘Black Stabilization’ feature which brightens the shadowed areas in darker games for better visibility. In addition, ‘Game Mode’ provides you with customizable and pre-optimized picture presets for specific gaming genres.
Design and Connectivity
From the looks of it, the ViewSonic XG3540C will offer full ergonomic support as well as the headphones hook and a cable management bracket. We can also expect a USB hub in addition to the expected DisplayPort and HDMI ports.
Price & Similar Monitors
The ViewSonic XG3540C price should be around $740 once it is released sometime in Q3 2018.
