    Nice review and great price point for 75hz max freesync. Thanks.

    It would be awesome if someone could compare a 2200G running games using the IGP,and a FreeSync monitor to a system running a lower end graphics card like a GT1030 without one.

    Re: iiyama G-Master G2530HSU

    The limited range for FreeSync does pose an interesting question: would it be better to ensure a wider range, like Nvidia, and guarantee a solid games-playing experience at the direct expense of cost? We ask this because frustration arises as soon as any game falls out of the minimum 48Hz support refresh rate. If you are going to do FreeSync, do it right, as users who expect to see silky-smooth visuals may well be left flummoxed by a screen such as this.
    I can see what you're getting at, but when the cheapest g-sync monitor on scan is north of £300 I think AMD is on to the better solution. £190 buys a big increase in GPU power, even in the current GPU climate

    £190,would buy you a Ryzen 3 2200G,and a motherboard!! I really want to see how these APUs paired with a FreeSync monitor would compare to an Intel rig with a GT1030 and a normal monitor!!

    Re: iiyama G-Master G2530HSU

    Can't you usually 'hack' the lower Freesync range to bring it down? Or have I completely made that up?

    Nope, wasn't imagining it: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/5iux1q/updated_tutorial_on_increasing_and_decreasing/

    I have no idea why the manufacturers can't calibrate this themselves to increase the Freesync range, especially at the lower end.

    Re: iiyama G-Master G2530HSU

    48Hz seems rather high for a minimum. If they could have got that down to 30Hz, then it would enable low framerate compensation.

    Still looks a decent monitor, nice to see displayport on something reasonable cost.

    We'll keep this monitor aside for such tests.

    Are people supposed to be grateful for monitors such as this? Oooh, it might be cheap, but all it's doing is filling the low end. By now we could EASILY all be using 120Hz screens but... $$$. Greed of business.



    Thankfully nearly all screens are 1080p or more but THAT took years.

    Well 144HZ monitors have started to drop to £200ish:

    https://www.ebuyer.com/811123-kg251q...r-um-kx1ee-f01
    https://www.ebuyer.com/628268-acer-p...r-um-fg6ee-b06

    Plus you could 4K monitors for as low as £180 last year IIRC.

    The main problem,is graphics cards have stagnated under £300 since early 2014.

    You could get an aftermarket R9 290 for under £300 in early 2014,a GTX970 a few months later for £250 and still the fastest sub £300 card,FOUR years later is a RX580 or GTX1060,which is barely 20% faster overall.

    So this is also meaning there is less pressure for cheaper higher resolution monitors,as the graphics cards have not increased in performance fast enough at the mainstream level.

    Well, AOC has just launched the G2590VXQ, and that one has a 30-75Hz FreeSync range
