One of the big questions we had leading into CES was exactly how many G-Sync panels we would see. If several monitor developers sign on then we would assume that it has a bright future. If we can count the number of models on one hand (and all of them 1080p TN-based panels) then we would have serious doubts.

Philips has just contributed a monitor to the mix: the 272G5DYEB; however, it is a 27-inch 1080p panel based on TN technology. It is capable of 144 Hz refresh rate and will be available in Spring. Its only input is DisplayPort as is common with G-Sync. There is not too much different about this panel compared to the ASUS version which has recently been made available. Hopefully this will be one of many announcements.

The Philips 27" Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC (272G5DYEB) will be available in Spring 2014 for $649 USD.

Philips 27” Monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC Delivers Smoothest and Fastest Gaming Experience Ever

Advanced Philips gaming display that eliminates tearing, stuttering and lag debuts at the 2014 International CES

 LAS VEGAS - Jan. 5, 2014 - The Philips 27” Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC debuts today bringing a stunning visual experience and ultra-smooth play to gamers looking for a serious competitive edge. This advanced Philips gaming display (model 272G5DYEB) delivers revolutionary performance through NVIDIA G-SYNC, a new technology that synchronizes display refresh rates to the PC’s GPU, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. With G-SYNC, images display the moment they are rendered, scenes appear instantly, objects are sharper, and game play is smoother.

The Philips 27” Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC will be showcased at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas at both Pepcom’s Digital Experience! event and the NVIDIA booth, which is located at LVCC, South Hall 3 - 30207. The display will be available for purchase in spring 2014 for $649 MSRP.

In addition to delivering consistently smooth frame rates and ultrafast response through G-SYNC display technology, the Philips 27” Gaming Monitor offers 144Hz refresh rate with 1ms response time  for fast action, 300cd/cmbrightness and a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, and displays up to 16.7M colors. The slim black monitor is both wall mountable and height adjustable.

“This 27-inch Philips monitor is a perfect gaming partner, with G-SYNC technology bringing breakthrough display performance and giving major competitive edge,” said Chris Brown, TPV Global Product Marketing.  “We believe anyone who really cares about their gaming experience is going to want a G-SYNC-enabled display.”

1080p and TN at that. Hell no.

1080p is dead anyway!

I feel like there are engineers at these manufacturers going 'This is really f'in cool' with better panel tech like IPS at resolutions of 2560x1440 or better.

Some improvement now is better than waiting years for the 'perfect' panel tech or specification improvement. Yes IPS might not have a 1ms GtG response time, but people would still be amazed by a monitor if their worst complaint was caused by that limitation.

I know my monitor going at IPS 2560x1440@120Hz isn't ghosting free, but the few pixels that require such a short pixel response are actually an edge case in comparison to the drastic improvements from refresh response in something as common and simple as panning a view.

Also, what's with lightboost and G-sync being mutually exclusive? Saving that up for 2015?

I find myself wondering how in Korea the cost for 2560x1440 monitors can be so cheap that throwaway panels were initially fielded for so low of a price here.

then they saw how much we really had to pay then the price went up.

we hear that we do not need the good monitors because we are not professionals - yet there was a time in the CRT world where 1920x1440 was the 22 inch spec-

And I carried that CRT (It was designed for CAD and the VGA cable broke out into seperate channels for the back of the monitor connection) around for years! Thing was at least 90lbs.
