Nvidia's head of G-Sync, Vijay Sharma, has confirmed that G-Sync HDR monitors will start shipping at the end of this month, confirming a report from PCWorld which stated that these Ultra-high-end gaming displays would be available soon.  

Right now, important details like pricing remain unknown, though we expect these displays to cost around £2000 or more, given their cutting-edge display technology and its merger with what is likely a new version of Nvidia's G-Sync module. 

The first two G-Sync HDR monitors are the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ and Acer's Predator X27, both of which offer virtually identical specifications, use the same 27-inch AU Optronic 4K/UHD HDR 10 panels and deliver the same maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. 

Both of these monitors offer a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, a 384-zone Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlight, a Quantum Dot panel for full support for the DCI-P3 colour gamut and support for DisplayPort 1.4 to push 4K resolutions in HDR at up to 144Hz with G-Sync support. These new displays will also support HDMI 2.0 inputs to offer 4K HDR playback with modern consoles and other devices.

At this time Nvidia's exact MSRP pricing for these displays is unknown, and it is expected that these monitors will release in low quantities. Regardless, most PC gamers will not be able to afford such a high-end gaming display, especially after purchasing the hardware required to push modern games to 60+ FPS at 4K.

Based on rumours I'd say in the area of £1499 is highly likely.Quote

I know I'm repeating myself over and over when these topics appear, but who is this made for? Nobody can cram framerates this high out of any hardware out there right now and it's also not futureproof as by then, these monitors will be much cheaper and most likely better in some way Quote

Volta needs SLI or this monitor is dead in the water.Quote

Let me guess: they'll be tiny little 27" screens too.Quote

I recall seeing one of these screens priced as high as 1900£ in Denmark. I know it's new technology and all, but come on these prices are just far out there. And the worst part is that often they are so popular the prices never really go down much. Because why lower the price when they sell like bread?Quote
