Nixeus NX-VUE24A 144Hz FreeSync Monitor Set to Shipby Ganesh T S on August 14, 2015 3:25 PM EST
We briefly covered the launch of the Nixeus NX-VUE24A FreeSync monitor as part of our write-up on AMD's FreeSync demonstrations at Computex 2015. Nixeus today sent news that the monitor is available for pre-order and set to ship as early as next week.
As a recap, the Nixeus NX-VUE24A is a 24" 1080p AMD FreeSync certified monitors with a minimum supported refresh rate of 30 Hz. The features of the NX-VUE24A include:
- 24" 1920 x 1080 TN panel
- Adaptive sync with refresh rates between 30 - 144 Hz
- 1ms response time
- DP 1.2a, HDMI, DL-DVI and VGA inputs
- Articulating stand for height adjustment (with tilt, pivot and swivel capabilities)
- 3-year warranty
AMD-certified FreeSync monitors come with a wide range of specifications and prices. Wikipedia has a list. Selected FreeSync models of relevance here (24" and 1080p resolution) include:
- The 24" 1920 x 1080 AOC G2460PF with a supposed refresh rate range of 30-160 Hz (availability outside Europe and pricing details are not known yet, and it appears that the maximum static refresh rate is only 144 Hz)
- The 24" 1920 x 1080 Samsung S24E370DL with a maximum refresh rate of 60 Hz (not yet available for sale in US, but a eBay listing puts a $400 price tag on it)
It appears that the Nixeus NX-VUE24A is the only 1920 x 1080 monitor currently available for purchase that comes with 30-144 Hz refresh rate support.
With a MSRP of $350 (and street price of around $330), the monitor seems to be priced right compared to other FreeSync monitors with similar feature sets. Pre-orders are being accepted at a number of e-tailers including Newegg, Amazon, and CouchPotato. CouchPotato seems to be offering free shipping and a new customer discount of 10%, while Newegg is charging $5 for shippping. Amazon seems to be selling at MSRP right now with free shipping.

Alexvrb - Friday, August 14, 2015 - linkWait I'm confused. 27 @ 1080 is OK, but 24 @ 1080 is not?? The smaller display would have a higher pixel density, bro.
Anyway if the NX-VUE24A and NX-VUE24B hit the market at $300-350 they will have no direct competition from other Adaptive Sync displays at this price. The only other AS monitors priced that low are lower refresh rate models that target a different audience. Would I like it to be even cheaper? Sure. But the price is still good for the feature set.
stephenbrooks - Friday, August 14, 2015 - linkEven though I get that the refresh rate and response times are very nice, $300+ on a 1080p monitor doesn't make sense to me without other features (high colour gamut, 3D, etc.)
looncraz - Friday, August 14, 2015 - linkAbsolutely a market. I desperately wanted a monitor just like this one a few months ago when I upgraded to a fancy 144hz 1080p 24" 1ms monitor for not much less. I would have been willing to spend $330 or so (I spent $300 as it was).
I would *really* prefer a nice IPS panel, no doubt, but I did manage to get the colors on this TN panel to be decent (after a LOT of work - the defaults were just horrible).
Considering I can push 100fps in BF4, though, and the VSync lag at that rate is minimal, I'm not sure FreeSync would have been a real benefit, though. But, I'd certainly try it for $30.
Ryun - Saturday, August 15, 2015 - linkSame. I've been itching to get a 144hz monitor for awhile now, and trying out an variable refresh rate monitor. Was considering the 24" AOC gsync one for awhile, but I liked that this one had more inputs and figured it would be cheaper.
Paid $297 after pre-ordering from couch potato (thanks for the tip, by the way!). Really looking forward to it.
ahamling27 - Friday, August 14, 2015 - linkAcer XG270HU - 27" 1440p 144hz FreeSync. Now I actually have an Nvidia GTX 970, so I don't use FreeSync, but I'm loving 144hz and 1440p for less than $500. It's a great monitor and I couldn't be happier, even if it's a TN panel.
Mondozai - Saturday, August 15, 2015 - linkHmm, I bought the G-Sync 1080p 24" 144 Hz monitor from AOC for around 300 dollars. It was on sale, to be sure, but still. Seems the so-called G-Sync premium diminishes at the lower end.
FriendlyUser - Saturday, August 15, 2015 - linkEIZO Foris 27" FreeSync 2560x1440 IPS 144Hz is coming this winter. I know I'm interested, but the price is likely to be relatively steep. This is likely to be one of the best gaming monitors out there.
twin - Saturday, August 15, 2015 - linkSo has anyone asked yet... while the display goes up to 144hz, does freesync operate up to 144hz on it? "Adaptive sync with refresh rates between 30 - 144 Hz" can be interpreted two very different ways, and I have little faith left.
jabber - Saturday, August 15, 2015 - linkYou can often OC your monitor.
I've got quite a few of my 22" screens (even IPS ones) to 70-75Hz which doesn't hurt.
Even got my little old Dell laptop with nvidia GPU up to 70Hz. Not much but every little helps.
