The first monitor to include Nvidia’s G-Sync technology as standard is due to hit UK shelves in the next few weeks.

The AOC g2460Pg is said by AOC to be the first monitor to integrate Nvidia’s long-touted G-Sync technology into its design, rather than requiring a retrofitted kit.

Demonstrating the technology to PCR (see below for a video), AOC said that the £359 24-inch display was due to arrive “within the next two to three weeks”, and will debut at PCR’s Boot Camp event on May 21st.

Nvidia G-Sync synchronises display refresh rates to the render rate of a GPU in a computer powered by an Nvidia GeForce GX graphics card that supports the technology.

This synchronisation should eliminate screen tearing and reduce display stutter and input lag, making gameplay smoother overall for gamers.

The announcement comes as distributor VIP Computers announced its intention to "lead the market on G-Sync and 4K", becoming the first UK distributor to stock the Palit 6GB GTX 780 Jetstream graphics card, which is designed to support G-Sync and 4K displays.

“Nvidia G-Sync monitors are a game-changer, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else,” said Matt Wright, consumer sales manager of Northern European distribution at Nvidia.

“Pro e-sport players and pro-gaming leagues are lining up to use G-Sync; it exposes a player’s true skill, demanding greater reflexes thanks to unnoticeable delay between on-screen actions and keyboard commands.

“Once you’ve used a G-Sync monitor in conjunction with a fast GeForce GTX GPU, you’ll never want to use a ‘normal’ monitor again.”

Nvidia recently announced its Q1 2015 financial results, revealing that net income for the graphics specialist had risen by 75 per cent from the previous year, hitting $137 million (£81m). GeForce GTX GPUs for both desktops and notebooks grew by 57 per cent.
