Today we're testing a monitor, but it's not the usual sort of monitor review. Rather, we're looking at a laptop display because it's super interesting - it's one of the few OLED laptop screens going around, and from testing this display we can learn a lot about how OLED might be suited to PC displays and how it compares to the LCD panels we've been using for a while now.
Earlier this year we first put Nvidia's support for FreeSync monitors to the test, grabbed every FreeSync monitor we had in the office, and verified that in all cases adaptive sync worked as expected. LG recently sent us 5 of their latest FreeSync monitors, which we've used to revisit Nvidia's FreeSync support.
FreeSync 2 is AMD's monitor technology for the next generation of HDR gaming displays. After an explainer on FreeSync 2, now we are testing one of these monitors for some gaming, and telling you if they're worth buying right now.
