With a 1920 x 1080 resolution and refresh rate of 144 Hz, this Sceptre monitor easily displays fast-moving visuals and frames transition instantly without blurred images. We like that the use of AMD FreeSync nearly eliminates tearing and reduces stuttering caused by disparities between a monitor's refresh rate and the graphics processing unit's frame rate.

There are several other features that impress us. For instance, the monitor can be tilted 15 degrees backward and five degrees forward so users can find their optimum viewing angle. We also like that users are able to choose between first person shooter and real time strategy game modes to access custom settings.

Users are able to have long gaming sessions, watch movies, or even complete work or school work comfortably because the monitor also reduces blue light to prevent eye fatigue, irritation, and strains.

Here on the CinemaBlend team, we realize that while adding a gaming monitor is crucial for anyone looking to enhance their gaming experience, selecting the right monitor can be confusing because there are so many technical terms. Here are some key terms to consider.

*Refresh Rate *
Refresh rate, measured in frequency (Hz), is the number of times per second a monitor can refresh. A refresh rate of 75 Hz, for example, means that the display can redraw the entire screen 75 times in one second.

Response time

Response time is the time it takes a monitor to shift from one color to another. A typical LCD response time is under 10 milliseconds (10ms), with some being as fast as 1 millisecond (1ms).

Blue Light Filter
The blue light in LED lighting can damage the eye's retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms. Some monitors have blue light filters to remove some of this light.

Screen Tearing

When the video feed to a device isn't synchronized with the display's refresh rate, the graphics processing unit (GPU) begins drawing the next frame while the current frame is still displayed. The result is what appears to be a horizontal tear in the frame.

Frame Stuttering

When the monitor anticipates a new frame from the GPU, but the GPU processes the frame too slowly, it must wait to push the new data to the display. The display then must redraw the previous frame. That causes two instances of the same frame to display, called a stutter.

FreeSync

An adaptive synchronization technology that supports a variable refresh rate. By dynamically adapting the display refresh rate to the content's variable frame rates, the technology avoids tearing and reduces stuttering.

*AMD *
Advanced Micro Devices is a multinational semiconductor company that develops computer processors and related technologies for business and consumer markets.
