LAS VEGAS — ViewSonic is no stranger to crafting all types of computer monitors, but it’s now clearer than ever that the display veteran is going after gamers. The company’s new XG series consists of several slick-looking displays built to offer lag-free performance and super-smooth framerates.

A highlight in ViewSonic’s lineup is the XG2703-GS ($1,217), which features a rich 2560 x 1440-pixel display and Nvidia’s G-Sync technology, which eliminates screen tears. The display’s 165Hz refresh rate should handle just about any game at high framerates, and the monitor packs extra features such as a dedicated game mode and black stabilization.

We also took a look at the $529 XG 2701, which features a less-sharp 1080p display but offers minimal input lag. A speedy 1-millisecond response time should keep things moving smoothly. This particular model packs AMD FreeSync, which syncs directly with AMD graphics cards for extra-smooth performance, much like G-Sync does for Nvidia cards.
