XL2420G LED Monitor: Features

The Hybrid Engine
G-SYNC Gaming Monitor

NVIDIA’s latest G-SYNC revolution requires monitor manufacturers to replace their scalar with a G-SYNC, trading in the freedom to scale settings like input frame, color hue, intensity and contrast for pure speed and smoothness of the game. With the best efforts of our R&D champions, we’ve found a way to keep your options open with the world’s first hybrid engine design. So you are in control of matching your choice of gameplay.

NVIDIA-Powered G-SYNC Mode
Sway Your Enemies with Game-changing Smoothness

By synchronizing the XL2420G’s display refresh rates to the GPU in a GeForce GTX-powered PC, the G-SYNC Mode enables images to appear instantly the moment they are rendered. The low latency effectively eliminates screen tearing, and minimizes display stutter and input lag – frame rate artifacts commonly seen in high-motion gaming. Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) is also at your disposal to smooth the way for a near-zero motion blur performance. Ultimately, with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, an unprecedented buttery smooth, ultra-responsive gameplay to victory is all you’ll get.

Motion Blur Reduction for Extra Clarity Throughout the Game

BenQ’s new Motion Blur Reduction technology further enhances an ultra-smooth, free-of-blur gaming experience, particularly for action-packed FPS games where every millisecond count. With Motion Blur Reduction, gamers no longer suffer from time and gaming comfort lost to poor vision quality created by motion blur and lagging. Instead, they have everything to gain with more reaction time advantage on their side to achieve ultimately a flawless victory.

Low Blue Light as Eye Safety Precautionary Measure

Practice long hours with clear, comfortable vision or compete with top-notch vision condition with BenQ’s new Low Blue Light. The blue spectrum light, which is produced by regular computer screens, is a critical cause of eye damage, eyestrain, headaches and sleeping disorders. Now with the offering of various adjustable low blue light levels, gamers can better protect their eyes. So there would be no need for yellow tinted eyeglasses for additional eye protection, and gameplay can be clear, comfortable and hassle-free!
