CES 2020: Nvidia’s New Tech Allows 360Hz Refresh Rates On Monitors


CES 2020 will officially begin from tomorrow onwards, but several companies have already demonstrated their new technologies at the world’s biggest tech event of the year.

Nvidia, the company that popularized the term GPU, will debut a new technology at CES 2020 that will enable mind-blowing 360Hz refresh rates on monitors. The G-sync technology that made its debut in 2013 has been optimized by the company to achieve this feat.

The G-Sync 360Hz tech will refresh the screen 360 times per second or once every 2.8 milliseconds making it a dream come true for all esports players. Nvidia’s latest offering will debut in Asus’s 24.5-inches 1080p gaming monitor making it the world’s first 360Hz gaming monitor running Nvidia’s G-sync 360.

The Asus ROG Swift 360Hz display panel will come equipped with an “advanced G-Sync processor” to support the increased refresh rate. According to Nvidia, the increased refresh rate will help esports and competitive games players in the smoother target tracking, thus reducing tearing and ghosting.

The contemporary monitors and televisions usually have 60Hz refresh rates, and Nvidia’s 6-times faster refresh rate technology will bring a considerable difference in the overall gaming experience. Nvidia says it will bring 37% flick shot improvement over a typical 60Hz monitor.
