NVIDIA announced today that it has partnered with Microsoft and Intel to create the next generation of gaming computer monitors, and they’ll have two distinct models.
Both will be built around the same form factor, with the first one being a 4K monitor with a resolution of 4096 x 2160 and the second being a 1440p monitor with 1920 x 1080.
In terms of size, the 1080p monitor will be slightly smaller than the 1440p one, but it will have a full 4K screen that supports HDR10, a new form of high-definition graphics that is being developed by Intel and NVIDIA.
It will also support NVIDIA’s proprietary FreeSync technology, which is designed to eliminate screen tearing and stuttering, while still delivering consistent, high-quality graphics.
The new monitor will also offer a wider viewing angle, thanks to the larger back panel, and it will offer a new stand design, which has a curved back, which will make the monitor stand up to the full force of a full-size monitor.
What’s the difference between these two models?
The new 1080P monitor will have the same panel as the current 1440p model, and the panel will also be manufactured in the same way as the other model, but the monitor will feature an LED backlight.
This will give the monitor a very low power consumption, and that’s why we expect the new model to have a lower price tag than the previous one.
NVIDIA will offer the new 1440p and 1080p models in both color and black and white.
We also expect the 1080P model to feature a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Both models will offer an Nvidia Shield Controller for Windows 10, and we expect both models to be available this summer, so expect to see the new monitors and the new gaming computers on shelves sometime this fall.
