In a stunning move from Nvidia earlier this week, the GPU company announced that they would finally begin supporting adaptive sync functionality on AMD FreeSync monitors. Previously, Nvidia graphics cards were only compatible with their proprietary G-Sync system, which is technically a slightly better implementation of adaptive sync monitor technology when compared to FreeSync however, monitors that support G-Sync require an additional piece of hardware from Nvidia to handle the variable refresh rate of the monitor which makes the monitors supporting G-Sync more expensive (usually in the range of $100-$250) than monitors of similar feature sets without the G-Sync [...]

When Razer acquired Nextbit in January this year, we had a feeling that they would put that acquisition to good use combining Nextbit’s smartphone engineering know-how with Razer’s own gamer twist. After just less than a year in the making, Razer unveiled their latest smartphone which may be the first decent smartphone ever produced specifically for gaming and content consumption.
The new smartphone, which Razer calls the Razer Phone, looks very similar to the Nextbit Robin, which was Nextbit’s flagship smartphone before the company was acquired by Razer. From there, Razer has made some serious enhancements to the product to make it one of the most [...]

For those who enjoy the experience of massive gaming monitors, Acer is quietly launching an updated version of the Predator Z35, the Predator Z35P.
The Acer Predator Z35 is one of the most impressive monitors on the market featuring 35-inches of screen real estate, Nvidia G-Sync support, and a refresh rate of up to 200Hz; however, with a lowly resolution of just 2560×1080, it’s a bit low for 2017.
Given that the resolution is clearly lacking, Acer’s new Predator Z35P remedies this issue by equipping the monitor with a new 35-inch AMVA+ 1800R curved panel featuring a native resolution of up to 3560×1440 (21:9 aspect ratio), 2500:1 contrast [...]
