As CES 2020 powers through another day of tech-filled innovation, heads have turned towards gaming.
Esports is more popular than ever, with gamers from all over the world trying their hand at multi-million-pound competitions and starting their own gaming channels. It’s no secret that the gaming industry is growing at an astonishingly rapid pace and will no doubt continue to do so in 2020.
Embracing this success, many tech companies have announced their latest contributions to the gaming sector.
Turning their attention to esports fans and competitive gamers, NVIDIA have just released the ‘G-Sync’ displays which champion a searing 360Hz refresh rate. Putting that into perspective, most gaming monitors available on the market now are around the 60Hz and 144Hz mark.
The monitors are capable of displaying frames every 2.8ms and of course, feature NVIDIA’s Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology.
If you’re a competitive gamer you should definitely get excited about this!
