Nvidia is following AMD closely at CES 2017 show and has announced its own Nvidia G-Sync HDR, developed in cooperation with AU Optronics.

According to Nvidia, these new G-Sync HDR monitors feature higher peak brightness, better contrast and a wide gamut of colors that is close to the DCI-P3 cinema standard.

These new G-Sync HDR displays are developed in cooperation with AU Optronics and, unlike HDR TVs, G-Sync HDR monitors were designed with one thing in mind, gaming, offering most stunning image quality, tear- and stutter-free G-Sync, minimal blur and near-zero input latency. They will also use something Nvidia calls full array 384-zone backlights and new Quantum Dot technology.

These 384 individually-controllable LED backlight zones ensure that the light will be shown only when it is needed thus producing bright colors as well as deep blacks.

While we still did not have a chance to see them in action, some of the first partners like Acer and Asus should have G-Sync HDR monitors ready later this year. Of course, we still need to hear information regarding the price premium that G-Sync HDR badge will carry.
