Iiyama Prolite B2783QSU-B1 27" FREESYNC Gaming Monitor

 

When FreeSync was first announced it was to be a feature which revolutionized display technologies, offering display makers the option to add adaptive refresh rate to their displays without using proprietary hardware. This in theory would allow this technology to be added to displays at no additional cost, but until now we have only seen this new technology on high cost/ high end displays, so was easy to say that FreeSync is not necessarily "Free".

Now things are starting to change as more and more lower end panels are starting to support this technology, with FreeSync panels as cheap as £99 being expected within a few months.

Today we have the very nice looking Iiyama Prolite B2783QSU-B1, a FreeSync compatible 1440p monitor that costs only £275.99 at Overclockers UK, which is merely £6 more expensive than their cheapest 1440p monitor

Looking at the specifications of this monitor we can see that this monitor is by no means low end, with a 1440p panel a USB 3.0 hub and a highly adjustable VESA Mount.

Sadly we have not been given this panel's adaptive refresh range (FreeSync Range), which is a common thing to be missing on the specification of these monitors. Thankfully after searching on Iiyama's own website I have found that this panel has a refresh rate window of between 48 and 70Hz, which is a very slim windows but a nice feature to have for a mere £6 premium. 

As scalar technology impoves we will likely see panels which have a wider refresh window at this price in the future, but for now this 22Hz dynamic refresh window is a very nice feature to have, especially since you can use AMD's Framerate target control to ensure that you never go over 70FPS.

This monitor show what FreeSync will be like in the future, a normal feature for monitors which does not have a hefty price premium. With Intel now looking to adopt the VESA Adaptive Sync/FreeSync standard and such affordable monitors coming out with FreeSync capability it would not be much of an exaggeration to say the G-Sync may be starting to lose the battle against FreeSync.

The Iiyama Prolite B2783QSU-B1 is currently available at Overclockers UK fro the price of £275.99
