In the world of gaming, AMD's FreeSync and Nvidia's G-Sync are two of the most exciting new technologies to enter the market. Although both technologies have been available for several months now, adoption of these standards is slow, with only a handful of displays that support them. Nixeus Technology announced that it will help extend this market a little with the introduction of its new display certified for FreeSync.
Nixeus claimed that the NX-VUE24 will be the world's first 24" Full HD 144 Hz AMD FreeSync-compatible display on the market, and this appears to be true. Currently, all FreeSync certified displays on the market use a 2K resolution superior to that of the 1080p resolution utilized here.
This gives the Nixeus display an advantage, in that the panel used is cheaper to produce and can be sold for a lower price; the monitor costs only $349.99. Although one display available currently, the LG 29UM67, sells for only $299.99, most FreeSync monitors available now sell for between $450 and $580.
Although the LG 29UM67 has a higher resolution and is cheaper, it is likely that these two displays could tussle over consumers' dollars after the Nixeus is released. What the NX-VUE24 gives up in image quality, it makes up for in refresh rate. The display features a 144 Hz refresh rate with a 1 ms response time, far exceeding the LG display's 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response time.
As a result, these displays will target slightly different audiences. The LG 29UM67 will likely attract an audience that cares less about refresh rate but more about aesthetics, such as casual users and gamers who enjoy RTS games. The NX-VUE24, on the other hand, with its fast refresh rate, will likely attract gamers who tend to play first-person shooters or similar fast-paced games where response time is vital.
