Most professional gamers are keen on choosing high-performance gaming equipment and they do it for a reason. Your skill set in a particular game goes hand-in-hand with the top-quality equipment to enhance your gameplay. Games with their great visuals and sound effects enable you to travel into a real-life experience. It’s recommended that you have a top-quality monitor to experience the game to the fullest.

You need to invest a lot when you expect nothing less than best quality images when exploring the imaginary world of your favorite game. If you compare the price of a TV and a monitor of similar resolution and size, you’ll be surprised to find the price of a TV to be way lesser than a monitor. Some gamers might be confused about going for TVs or monitors.

Here are some of the criteria to help you choose between a monitor and a TV for gaming:

No more lags or visual tearing

If you’re going to choose a TV over a monitor, think again! A TV isn’t customized for playing the high definition games. The TV manufacturer will not be aware of what’s in store for the TV apart from the purpose it’s intended.

A monitor has G-sync which ensures you the best gaming experience without much of lags. It’s rightly said that you can’t go back to a monitor without G-sync once you have experienced playing on a G-sync monitor.

The next best thing to consider while choosing monitors over TVs is the response time. If you were to ask what a response time is all about, it’s the time takenbetween hitting a key and what happens on the screen. TV usually has poor response when compared to gaming monitors, while most monitors have a 1ms GTG (gray-to-gray) response time.

A real-life experience

Most games are developed by the game developers to be played in high definition (HD); it wouldn’t make sense if you’re not able to play games at full HD. If you like to experience the game at 120 Hz or more, it’s mandatory to have any of these three ports – Display port, HDMI 2.0, Dual-link DVI. However, you’ll not be able to find any of these in most TVs.

Some TVs do come with a HDMI port which isn’t a 2.0 HDMI port but a 60 Hz with 30 or less FPS (frames per second). Putting it across in a better way is that your TV will predict half of the missing frames to achieve the 120 Hz.A 10ms delay can cost your life in the game with these delays and visual tearing.

You can choose either to go for gaming monitors or TVs depending on how often and which games you play. If you’re a gamer who plays a lot of fast action games, like the Call of Duty, a gaming monitor will be an ideal choice. However, if you play slow-paced games,like the RPGs,then a TV would suffice. It’s your chance to go ahead and choose the best screen and have fun!

Are you someone who keeps abreast of the latest phones trending in the market? Then you must know that people have been whispering about the iPhone 8 that’s rumored to debut this year. When? Apple is pretty quiet about it, but you can’t stop tongues from wagging. It is believed to come into the open sometime around the 10thanniversary of the iPhone – September.However, it might not be launched as iPhone 8; let’s just go with that for now, considering Apple has not confirmed a name for it.

Everybody’s curious about whatthe next version is likely to be called – 7S, 8 – or something on those lines. Considering it’s going to be a BIG launch for Apple, it could be a tremendous design change or might even break tradition with the naming convention. It could be a strong leap to an “iPhone Pro,” iPhone 7S, or a straightforward iPhone 8 – it could just about anything out of the box to mark the anniversary.

iPhone 8Is

Upbeat screen space and resolution

Rumor has it that the premium version is going to be upbeat with stellar looks – a bigger screen at 5.8 inches, and a curved OLED screen. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is working hard asking suppliers to come up with a better screen and pristine resolution than Samsung.

If the above is true, then the mysterious version of the iPhone is going to have a higher resolution than the Quad HD, which is 2560×1440. It’s going to be a lengthy, clear piece of glass – OLED screen; about 600 engineers are huddled to come up with the generation-next 3D sensor. Also, this version of the iPhone is known to have eye sensors, which is pretty forward thinking.

Hidden behind the scenes

As ridiculous as it may sound, the battery and antennas are likely to be hidden around the edges of the screen. Apple has been working its way to coming up with a version made from glass in length and breadth, and this mystery version could be the one.

The part about the edge-to-edge OLED screen – Apple hopes to do away with the top and bottom panels. You won’t find a physical home button; instead, the TouchID fingerprint scanner would be blended in to the interface.

The startling iPhone 8 processor

Some leaked documents state that the iPhone 8 would include an Apple 11 processor. It’s a possibility that the processor may be on any one of two mainboard sections because of the bigger screen and thinner panels.

The age of wireless charging

You don’t have to worry about leaving your charger behind when you’re on the move anymore! The iPhone 8 has gone wireless, which means you don’t need wires. Pretty cool, eh? While the masses were eagerly waiting for the wireless charging with earlier versions, it was obvious that this wasn’t coming any sooner than 2017.

A report on Nikkei states that Foxconn is working on the wireless charging modules for the iPhone 8. In fact, the very reason the switch is being made from metal to glass is to support wireless charging.

Just keep a close watch, and you might just find yourself unraveling more interesting facts and figures on the iPhone 8.
