We briefly covered the launch of the Nixeus NX-VUE24A FreeSync monitor as part of our write-up on AMD's FreeSync demonstrations at Computex 2015. Nixeus today sent news that the monitor is available for pre-order and set to ship as early as next week.

As a recap, the Nixeus NX-VUE24A is a 24" 1080p AMD FreeSync certified monitors with a minimum supported refresh rate of 30 Hz. The features of the NX-VUE24A include:

  • 24" 1920 x 1080 TN panel
  • Adaptive sync with refresh rates between 30 - 144 Hz
  • 1ms response time
  • DP 1.2a, HDMI, DL-DVI and VGA inputs
  • Articulating stand for height adjustment (with tilt, pivot and swivel capabilities)
  • 3-year warranty

AMD-certified FreeSync monitors come with a wide range of specifications and prices. Wikipedia has a list. Selected FreeSync models of relevance here (24" and 1080p resolution) include:

  • The 24" 1920 x 1080 AOC G2460PF with a supposed refresh rate range of 30-160 Hz (availability outside Europe and pricing details are not known yet, and it appears that the maximum static refresh rate is only 144 Hz)
  • The 24" 1920 x 1080 Samsung S24E370DL with a maximum refresh rate of 60 Hz (not yet available for sale in US, but a eBay listing puts a $400 price tag on it)

It appears that the Nixeus NX-VUE24A is the only 1920 x 1080 monitor currently available for purchase that comes with 30-144 Hz refresh rate support.

With a MSRP of $350 (and street price of around $330), the monitor seems to be priced right compared to other FreeSync monitors with similar feature sets. Pre-orders are being accepted at a number of e-tailers including Newegg, Amazon, and CouchPotato. CouchPotato seems to be offering free shipping and a new customer discount of 10%, while Newegg is charging $5 for shippping. Amazon seems to be selling at MSRP right now with free shipping.

    The whole point of G-Sync and FreeSync is that as long as minimum frame-rates stay above ~30, they'll be very smooth - which they are. And higher than 60fps has almost always been overkill. Reply

    If you don't play fast-paced games 60hz is plenty. But to call those who DO play fast-paced games "foaming at the mouth crazies" is really just insulting. Not to mention that the statement itself is then followed by yet another an ignorant comment not grounded in fact. Reply

    It's 4K resolution so of course it's capped at 60Hz until DP1.3 comes out.

    Besides, you won't get more than 60 fps in modern games unless you have 980Ti SLI max overclocked or Fury X CF max overclocked and even then in some games you won't be there either since SLI/CF don't scale perfectly.

    For many gamers 60Hz is perfectly fine as long as it's stable. Also, someone who wants 120-144Hz monitor is better off looking at a 1080P/1440P monitor since there is simply no GPU available out that can handle such frames on 4K and it'll probably take until Volta in 2018 until a single flagship $700 card can do it.

    This might fit the bill

    At $600, "the bill" is definitely the key takeaway from your comment. :-0

    Otherwise yes, very nice.

    Any monitors that say TN panel get a pass from me after getting an IPS display. I took a look at that Wikipedia article on FreeSync and found a good 27" IPS display on there that is supposed to come out around this winter. http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/eizo-foris-fs2735... Reply

    Is there even a market for such a monitor?
    You would think that someone willing to pay 300+ on a screen (and needs freesync), would want more than 24 inch 1080p. That size and res is so 2008.

    A look on the various overclocking forums and enthusiast forums seem to reveal otherwise.. Everyone wants as high a refresh rate as possible, while also pushing down the minimum supported refresh rate (because some demanding games can sustain, say, only 35 fps in their current setup).

    I am not a gamer, and I personally would like IPS / PLS panels, high bit-width (no 6-bit+FRC) ones and high resolution ones with more emphasis on colour accuracy - I know that this product is not for me - but, observing and writing about the tech industry for 5+ years has taught me if a product is not suited for me, it doesn't mean it is not suited for anyone else :)

    On a completely orthogonal note, but related to the above observation - I would never recommend a Dropcam or a Nest or any of these new devices that take control away from the user's premises and enable operation only through the cloud - In fact, I want the market to teach those guys a lesson by people voting with their wallets. Unfortunately, Dropcam and Nest models continue to sell like hot cakes and this has encouraged a lot of crowd funding projects to also adopt the same strategy.. So, what this teaches me is again the same point - something that doesn't appear right to me is probably perfectly acceptable to some other consumer.

    Res and size not res or size. 24 inch 1440p would be ok, 27 and 1080 ok also but 24 inch 1080p seems too little. FreeSync is also kinda better if you can't reach high FPS (don't confuse FPS with refresh rates) . If your GPU can push high FPS ,FreeSync is less of a plus. All that coupled with the price, if it was 220-250$,it would be ok.

    As for intrusive IoT, the worst of the worst are smart door locks. For some reason their makers not only think that it's a good idea to connect them to the internet but they also want the traffic to go through their servers.Because making it less safe and giving the lock maker control is something sane people should desire. For cams in China they are going as far as to give the hardware for free if you pay for the service. Nest charges way too much for the hardware too. But don't blame Nest, the trend is not their creation, it's greed pushing the industry to try and charge for services, make money from data and so on. Even Win 10 is kinda like that, the thing feels like Microsoft is about to slip something into your drink. The press has it's own part to play, they got no ethics ,they just play ball to get their advertising revenue. 10 years ago Apple was the same company and nobody liked them in the tech press, today they don't dare to say anything negative about Apple or even be objective. AT wouldn't mention how the iphone is hugely behind in specs and features if their life depended on it. They even avoid listing features that would make it look bad, like cat 4 LTE. 100 people wrote that article but they nono of them managed to list proper specs like for any other device and later on they intentionally avoid mentioning it's cat 4 while being sure that they mention carrier aggregation.Selective reviews, shows the positives, hide the negatives because objectivity, honesty and decency or passe.
