NVIDIA has announced G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2, a new iteration of the monitor technology that enables up to 1,400 Hz of effective motion clarity for the best motion blur reduction for competitive gamers. According to NVIDIA, ULMB 2 delivers full refresh rate backlight strobing and nearly 2x higher brightness than the original version of ULMB, including practically zero crosstalk. One of the first companies to adopt the technology is Acer, having announced the availability of NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2) technology on its Predator series gaming monitors, beginning with the Predator XB273U F, today. The ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN is also getting new firmware that enables support for ULMB 2.
NVIDIA G-SYNC ULMB 2 Monitor Requirements
- Deliver over 1000 Hz of effective motion clarity
- Drive ULMB 2 at the monitor’s full refresh rate
- Deliver over 250 nits of brightness with minimal crosstalk or double images
NVIDIA G-SYNC ULMB 2 Monitors Available Today
NVIDIA G-SYNC ULMB 2 Monitors Coming Soon
- ASUS ROG Swift Pro PG248QP – 25” 1080p 540 Hz
- AOC AGON AG276QSG G-SYNC Monitor – 27” 1440p 360 Hz
From an NVIDIA GeForce post:
ULMB 2 provides full refresh rate backlight strobing and significantly brighter images, all while maintaining pristine image quality. With the panel response time improvements from our partners at AUO, ULMB 2 gives competitive gamers the motion clarity needed to perform at peak levels by keeping them in the game when moments get chaotic.
With ULMB 2, gamers get an effective motion clarity of over 1000 Hz with these improvements, calculated as the refresh rate of the monitor multiplied by one over the duty cycle [Effective Motion Clarity = Refresh rate * (1 / Duty Cycle)].
For a 360 Hz monitor with ULMB 2, the effective motion clarity is actually 1440 Hz. That means in order to obtain the same level of motion clarity without ULMB 2, gamers would need a classic panel capable of 1440 Hz.
