Nixeus Launch 3 New 27″ Gaming Monitors with a Focus on Console Support

Share this content

Nixeus have announced this week three new monitors in their EDG (Engineered and Designed for Gamers) line-up. The focus is on enhancements for support for latest generation consoles including the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. This includes ensuring support for 120Hz refresh rate, and adding FreeSync support over HDMI to allow support for variable refresh rates (VRR) where available. This inclusion over HDMI allows it to support VRR from Xbox Series X/S consoles already, with the PS5 not supporting any VRR at the moment. It remains to be seen if Sony will add HDMI-VRR (which requires HDMI 2.1 capabilities) or adaptive-sync over HDMI. With the screen resolution being 1440p, it can work at 1440p 120Hz from Xbox, but only 1080p 120Hz from PS5, again a limitation of the consoles resolution support.

The three new models from Nixeus announced are:

NX-EDG27Sv3

A new update to the existing v2 model, this screen is 27″ in size and offers a 2560 x 1440 resolution combined with a 144Hz refresh rate. It’s an update to their best selling model, now including support for 120Hz gaming with Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5. The screen includes FreeSync Premium certification for both the DisplayPort and HDMI interfaces with a 30 – 144Hz VRR range and LFC.

The NX-EDG27Sv3 is built on an AU Optronics IPS-type panel with 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles and 8-bit colour depth. Colour gamut is oddly not listed at the moment and we expect this to mean it is standard sRGB gamut only (given they specifically talk about wide gamut with the other models).

Nixeus talk about the inclusion of variable overdrive as well to help control response times. This also has a 4ms G2G quoted response time spec. There are 2x DisplayPort 1.2a and 2x HDMI 2.0 ports provided, and the screen also includes integrated speakers. The screen is due to be released in Q1 2022. You can find more info from Nixeus here.

NX-EDG27X

This model has been around for a little while actually. It is 27″ in size and offers a 2560 x 1440 resolution, combined with a 165Hz refresh rate. It uses a ‘Fast IPS’ panel with KSF backlight and delivers a wide colour gamut with 98% DCI-P3 coverage quoted. Like the NX-EDG27Sv3, this model supports adaptive-sync (FreeSync) over DisplayPort and HDMI connections, and reportedly includes variable overdrive too. There is also a 100-level overdrive adjustment control on this model, supporting the quoted 1ms G2G response time spec. In other specs the screen has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness (max) and 178/178 viewing angles. There are 1x DisplayPort 1.2a and 2x HDMI 2.0 ports included as well as an audio output connection and built in speakers. The stand offers a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.

NX-EDG27240X

This model has a higher refresh rate than the others, with 240Hz offered along with the 2560 x 1440 resolution IPS panel. Like the other two screens it features adaptive-sync over DisplayPort and HDMI, including a 48 – 240Hz range, LFC support and variable overdrive. The DisplayPort 1.4a with DSC connection is required to power 1440p at 240Hz from a PC, with the HDMI ports being able to support 1440p at 120Hz for consoles (where supported). There is a 1ms G2G quoted response time and a 127-level adjustment of the overdrive control if you need it. Other specs include a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness (max), 178/178 viewing angles and a wide colour gamut covering 95% DCI-P3. There are 2x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.0 ports included as well as an audio output connection and built in speakers. The stand provides a basic tilt-only adjustment on this model.

The NX-EDG27240X is available already in some regions from Amazon (affiliate link). More product information can be found on Nixeus’ website here.
