Esports News – Pro gamers are a cut above the rest not just because of their skill, but also when it comes to equipment. And this proves that apart from skill, your success rate is affected by the gaming equipment you use as well, especially the monitors and panels carrying the visuals.
With that, this week episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series features two gaming monitors with high refresh rates: Acer XF250Q and Viewsonic XG2530. Monitors with low input lag and exceptionally high refresh rate can improve your game style. Both products have the exact same speed and size, but which of them carries the most unique features for competitive gameplay?
While many monitors offer the key features needed for responsive gaming experiences, only a few can provide an adaptive-sync technology and an ultra-high refresh rate. The Acer XF250Q is one of these exceptionally developed monitors. Its 24.5-inch panel carries 1920x1080p resolution, Twisted Nematic (TN) display, 16:9 aspect ratio, 1ms response time, AMD Free Sync, and 240 HZ refresh rate. The high refresh rate of the monitor allows the user to use its Motion Blur Reduction technology without reservation. This means that you can witness reduced perceptible ghosting when playing games and watching movies with fast moving objects. Competitive players can then gain an advantage over their opponents in competitive games, especially in FPS as it gives off clearer images with no trailing effects.
The Acer XF250Q features an ergonomic design boasting comfort and durability. The zero frame edge-to-edge screen of the panel allows you to fully view the screen without getting distracted with the gap between the panel and the frame. In addition to that, you also have the convenience of having four USB 3.0 ports for connecting third-party hardware to the monitor and an extra HDMI 2.0 port which supports 1080p at 240 Hz.
ViewSonic is a popular multinational electronics company known for providing consumer electronics. The brand is considered an underdog compared to Asus, Acer, and Alienware, but its monitor line can rival high-end brands in the market. The Viewsonic XG2530 is a 24.5 panel with 240 Hz rate and 1920x1080p resolution, one of the fastest industry. At first glance, you can say that it has the same features as the Acer XF250Q, but once you peel away the layers, there are other features waiting in store for you.
The Viewsonic XG2530 carries the following features and software: AMD FreeSync technology, Black stabilization, and pre-set customizable visual modes for FPS, RTS, and MOBA games. The monitor also provides adjustment settings in other departments including 5-level of response time, 22-level of black stabilization, and aspect ratio configuration. Without a doubt, it’s the monitor that fits your specific style of gaming.
