Featured-packed Eizo Foris gaming monitor offers FreeSync controls

PC gamers would argue that there’s no better way to experience the likes of Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront than on a high-end custom gaming system, but even the most impressive rig needs an equally compelling monitor to properly fulfill its purpose.

That seems to be the thought process behind the attention-grabbing Eizo Foris FS2735. Sporting a 27-inch 2,560 x 1,440 IPS display, this would be an appealing option for anyone looking for a crystal-clear window into the latest gaming releases. However, the real benefit of this monitor is the gamer-centric functionality that it offers alongside its attractive specs.

The product’s user manual has revealed that the FS2735 will allow users with FreeSync ready graphics cards to switch between two different modes. The High setting will cover a vertical scan frequency range of 56Hz to 144Hz, while the Low option will cover 35Hz to 90Hz.

A huge part of the charm of PC gaming is the fact that there are plenty more customization options available to the user in comparison to consoles. Two separate FreeSync settings seems like a canny way of allowing players to ensure that their games are running perfectly with a minimum of effort.

As well as this functionality and its lush display, the Eizo Foris FS2735 also boasts 16.77 million colors, a grey-to-grey response time of 4ms and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The monitor also offers cloud profile support, Eizo’s own Smart Insight Demolition technology and the ability for smartphone notifications to by transmitted to the border of its display.

Despite being announced back in August at Gamescom 2015, Eizo has yet to announce pricing and a release date for the FS2735. However, given the monitor’s specs and the sort of functionality on offer, it’s perhaps to be expected that we’ll see the product ship with a fairly high price point.

BenQ’s curvy new QHD display for gamers supports AMD’s FreeSync 2 tech
new benq curved display for games supports amd freesync two ex3203r gaming 2

Gamers looking for a monitor supporting AMD’s FreeSync 2 technology now have a new option from BenQ: The EX3203R. Available now for $700, it’s a 32-inch curved display with a QHD resolution, an 1800R curvature, and a 144Hz refresh rate.

If you’re not familiar with AMD’s FreeSync 2 technology, it arrived at the beginning of 2017 as an alternative to the original FreeSync platform. Both synchronize the frames-per-second output of an AMD-based graphics card with the display’s refresh rate. This eliminates the visual screen tearing and stuttering that typically arises when the game's framerate fluctuates.

Samsung 2018 QLED TVs update adds FreeSync, but limits refresh rates

Samsung has released a free firmware update for a number of its 2018 QLED TVs (it's different from OLED) that enables the FreeSync adaptive frame synchronization technology. The option has been added to the TVs' game mode menu, meaning that Xbox One S and X owners can take advantage of its ability to eliminate screen tearing during times where the system struggles to meet the maximum refresh rate of the display.

Frame synchronization is something that PC gamers have contended with for years, with V-Sync being the classic option for preventing the tearing that often occurs when the frames per second your graphics card is able to pump out doesn't match the refresh rate of your display. G-Sync and FreeSync are more modern alternatives with far less of a performance overhead and as support grows on consoles and TVs, more gamers than ever can reap the benefits.
