ViewSonic has announced a ton of new gaming-centric monitors at CES 2016, ensuring that a wide variety of users can find a product they like. The company is also very clearly on the variable refresh bandwagon, with every display bar one featuring either Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync technology.
The most expensive of the new monitors is the XG2073-GS, a $1,217 27-inch 2560 x 1440 "SuperClear IPS-type" monitor with a maximum refresh rate of 165 Hz. This panel supports G-Sync, and is quite a bit more pricey than Asus' competing ROG Swift PG279Q, which also sports a 165 Hz 1440p display for just $799.
If you're after a 4K display, ViewSonic will sell you a 27-inch one with FreeSync for $913 in late January. This monitor also uses a "SuperClear IPS" display, and features 5ms response times with what appears to be a maximum refresh of 60 Hz. Connectivity includes a HDMI 2.0 port and DisplayPort 1.2a.
For AMD users out there, ViewSonic has two new 1080p displays that support FreeSync: the 24-inch XG2401 and 27-inch XG2701. Both of these displays go up to 144 Hz, and both sport 1ms response times, which indicates this panel uses a TN-type display. You can grab the 24-inch model for $404, and the 27-inch for $529 in late January.
Moving down the product stack we find the VX2776-smhd, a 27-inch 1080p IPS display. ViewSonic claims this monitor features a "contemporary borderless design", and its built-in speakers make it "the ideal multimedia display". There's no FreeSync or G-Sync in this panel, which will go on sale in April for $317.
And finally we have ViewSonic's entry-level 1080p monitors, all which support FreeSync and deliver 2ms response times. There are three models in total: the 22-inch VX2257-mhd, which costs $201 and is available now; the 24-inch VX2457-mhd, available in February for $228; and the 27-inch VX2757-mhd, available now for $323.
