ViewSonic’s new VX57 Gaming Monitor series

ViewSonic has unveiled its new VX57 series of gaming monitors, which come with a fast input response and equally fast response time. Also worth noting that this is the first ViewSonic range of gaming monitors that come equipped with AMD FreeSync technology.

The ViewSonic VX57 series come in three screen sizes of 22, 24 and 27 inches. All three models are Full HD, with an ultra-fast 1ms response time and a low input lag mode that eliminate blurring or what is more commonly known as ‘ghosting’. As with what is already common with most gaming monitors, the VX57 monitors have its own ‘Game Mode’ hot keys that allow users to switch different monitor profiles for different type of games; e.g., for FPS, RTS or MOBA games.

As mentioned earlier, the VX57 is also equipped with AMD FreeSync technology that seamlessly synchronizes the frame rate output between your graphics card and monitor. This dynamic refresh rate effectively eliminates image tearing, stuttering, and jerkiness for a smooth gameplay. The monitors’ fully adjustable stand offers 28 degrees of tilt (5 forward, 23 backward), and comes with a DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA inputs (for multiple connectivities between PC and Consoles).

What caught our attention however, is that the series also have features that promote eye care benefits – the Flick-free and Blue Light Filter eye-care technologies. We may be wrong, but this seems to be a first for gaming monitors. Or at least that we know or heard of.

According to the press release that we received, “Flicker-Free technology completely eliminates screen flickering by integrating DC-modulation LED backlights. The benefit of this technology is to reduce discomfort and eye fatigue, preventing the occurrence of CVS. ViewSonic’s Blue Light Filter technology can be adjusted to different viewing scenarios, lowering the amount of blue light output to a maximum of 87% and protecting viewers from the possible side effects of blue light without compromising the color performance. With Flicker-Free technology and a Blue Light Filter, this monitor helps to eliminate eyestrain that comes with extended viewing periods – meaning you can outlast and out-game your opponents just as their eyes begin fail them.”

We’ll update on the monitors’ pricing and availability once we get them. In the meantime, stay tuned to our future review of one of these babies.
