During their CES 2020 keynote, tech giant Nvidia have officially revealed what they call the world's fastest esports and gaming monitor. The monitor features 360Hz refresh rate with G-Sync technology.
"Our partners at ASUS have implemented this technology, together with AU Optronics’s panel, in the ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz esports display. This no compromises display offers a 360Hz refresh rate for unparalleled smoothness, lower system latency for faster reaction times and a 24.5-inch 1080p form factor to keep every pixel of action in your field of view," it's written in the announcement.
Nvidia also revealed that according to their data, players' performance in Overwatch improved 37 per cent when playing on 360Hz monitor which is 4 per cent higher than the performance on 240Hz displays. Of course, not many games can achieve these framerates so the monitor is only a sensible buy if you're strictly playing games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rainbow Six: Siege, Overwatch, Fortnite, DOTA 2 or League of Legends.
Nvidia claim that 360Hz helps with other things like getting on target faster by reducing system latency and improving target acquisition through increased display clarity. You can watch the demo of this in the video above, although the benefits of this are not easily seen online when watching a video.
The monitor is expected to arrive sometime in 2020. The price is yet to be revealed but it's probably going to cost more than $500 since similar 240Hz monitors from Asus are running in the $400 to $500 range. Check out the announcement article here .
