Kitguru had a chat with Vijay Sharma, Product Management Leader for NVIDIA G-SYNC, and got to hear that the first 4K 144Hz HDR gaming displays with G-SYNC support are on track to hit retail shelves later this month.
These screens have been in the pipeline for quite some time, NVIDIA talked about 4K 144Hz HDR G-SYNC panels back at CES 2017, but ASUS and Acer kept delaying the introduction.
The long delay was caused by an undisclosed production issue.
Aside from that bit of good news, we were able to glean some other interesting tidbits about the new panels. For instance, the nearly year-and-a-half long delay from the initial announcement up until now was not planned – Nvidia encountered some as yet unknown issues during production and had to delay manufacturing to release the best possible product. That would explain why we were initially told to expect a Q2 2017 launch.
ASUS has the PG27UQ and Acer has the X27, both are 27-inch displays. Pricing is unknown but Sharma said they will definitely cost over $1,000.
