Japanese corporation Eizo is set to bring its newest gaming monitor to the market this month. Along with a suite of built-in "Smart" display technologies, the 23.8-inch Foris FS2434 is notable for its slimline 6-mm frame, which is made up of a 2-mm bezel and a 4-mm border.
EIZO is a company known for interesting monitor technology like the Wi-Fi enabled network displays introduced last year. With the Foris FS2434, the company aims to take on such multi-display solutions as the Philips Two-in-One Monitor, making multi-screen gaming an enticing enterprise.

Each FS2434 IPS display features 1920 x 1020 pixel resolution (16: 9 aspect ratio), 2 x HDMI and 2 x USB 3.0 ports, a 1000:1 contrast ratio (5000:1 with ContrastEnhancer), 0.5 W stereo speakers and is bundled with G-Ignition software for detailed image control. This monitor also employs a hybrid DC/PWM system which aims to do away with flickery gameplay.
There's also the aforementioned suite of "Smart technologies" – Smart Detection, Smart Resolution, and Smart Insight 2. Smart Resolution analyzes the onscreen image and corrects blur without significantly increasing noise. Smart Insight 2 takes all the fun out of horror-themed games by dynamically brightening up dark areas in a game "to spot enemies in the shadows" while Smart Detection is able to detect which portion of the monitor is playing videos or games and applies the other two Smart technologies to that area only.
Above you’re seeing an example provided by Eizo of its Smart technologies in effect. Notice the lightening of the environment, especially.
We won’t be convinced this set of solutions out-performs other high-end displays such as NVIDIA's G-Sync monitors until we see them all in action side-by-side. That won't happen until later this month, when the Eizo Foris FS2434 Gaming Monitor ships.
Pricing is yet to be announced, but in the meantime you can check out further details of the Foris FS2434 Gaming Monitor in the video below.
